Jack Bauer (actor Kiefer Sutherland) is still alive as FOX TV 24's Final Episode revealed on Monday night, May 24, 2010. During 24's last 2 hours of Season 8 (and also 24's final episode) President Allison Taylor realizes that she must try to save Jack Bauer.
Jack Bauer almost assassinates two persons: former U.S. President Charles Logan and Yuri Suvarov, President of the Russian Federation. But Jack's CTU friend Chloe O'Brian (a consistently favorite character on 24 portrayed by actress Mary Lynn Rajskub) convinces Jack not to kill them. Jack didn't have to kill Charles Logan because Charles Logan ends up killing himself before the final 2 hours of 24 comes to an end.
Once again, the good news is that Jack Bauer is still alive at the end of 24, Season 8. I write this with a bit of hesitancy due to the fact that Jack Bauer went on a murdering spree during the past few episodes of 24. But, having been a fan of 24 since the first episode, I have forgiven Jack. After all, it's not Jack Bauer's fault that the now-liberal writers of 24 decided to turn him into a somewhat different person.
If there is a 24 movie, and the fact that Jack Bauer is still alive could mean there might be a film, perhaps the writers will rewrite Jack Bauer's character into the American hero fans like myself grew to love and appreciate. A 24 movie with an emphasis on the Jack Bauer fans recognize and remember will surely be a huge box office hit, and a special treat for 24 fans worldwide.
