Well, didnt see any other active threads about this, and anyone correct me if I am wrong, but I just want to get a good discussion going about the upcoming season three of 24. Seeing the preview for the third season, it almost looks like they are trying to work in a replacement for Jack on there in the form of that lame looking kid. The plot of bioweapons is very cool and scary, but somehow I think it would have been cooler for a smaller scale story this time around after the nuclear threat of season 2. Now, from reading the TV guide interviews and whatnot, some things got my mind racing. In it, Kiefer mentions how he wanted to kill Bauer at the end of season 2, just to show the show is willing to do anything. Obviously they didnt, but from what the TV guide said, they have something BIG planned for early season 3. A MAJOR twist that makes all the old ones look tame. It may be just marketing hype, but it may be the truth. Here are some of my theories, stupid as they may be. 1. Jack Bauer WILL die. The article states that is not the case, but I wouldnt put it past them. Wheter he dies from a heart attack of by gunfire, this would put a major curve on the show. 2.Jack is somehow involved with the terrorist plot this time. The previews and articles all make it look like Jack is damaged goods this season, and maybe just maybe, he is somehow responsible for the terror this season. Either he is in on the plot, which is kinda dumb I think, or he is somehow responsible for hte virus in question. Who knows. Like I said, stupid theories 3.Someone major will die early on. I think to throw the show for a loop, killing Jack would be great for shock value, or to say he has only a few days to live. But if they killed off kim early, that would drive jack over hte edge permanently I think. Or maybe even Tony Almeda, kill him off. But only by killing jack or kim would you achieve real shock Personally, unless he is proven good, I hope they kill off this new punk taggin around with jack. Just pictures of this guy makes me kind of sick. I dont know why. I am curious to see what everyone else is speculating now.
