Just let Kim go back to LA and raise a family for a few more seasons give Jack have something to live/fight for.
I wish Jack would kill Kim.
I forgot I recorded this so that shows how much the show tension has dissipated for me since Tony went evil. I just don't feel the story urgency now.
So now the finale seems to hinge on the fact the Kim Bauer is in trouble yet again. The one character who is responsible for the worst story elements in the show's history and that's what they want to build the final two hours around?
Every time she appears in the show she's always doing something dumb, getting kidnapped or getting in trouble (Eek! A mountain lion!) that Jack has to fix. If it's a case of not helping Tony escape - again
this season - or someone shooting Kim Bauer, Jack should go for the latter. Based on her track record at some point in the future Kim will probably accidentally push a button that says "Nuclear Detonator: DO NOT PUSH UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES." while being chased by a villain with a top hat and twirly mustache. So Jack will be saving millions of lives.
At this point in the season I don't think anything too obvious is off the cards. I recognized agents from EvilCo on the metro and as soon as Kim bumped into the couple at the airport. The only thing I didn't see coming this episode was how easily they wrapped up the gas bomb plot.
But that's probably because I didn't think they would use the worst character in the show's history as the basis for the finale.
