24May 25, (THAINDIAN NEWS) The finale of ‘24′ boiled down to the complex romance of Chloe O’Brian and Jack Bauer, with Jack saying his farewell to her via drone satellite. Fans of the action series were anxious to know since the announcement of the finale whether Jack Bauer would survive or not. The nail biting season came to a much expected end made the audience certain that there will either be a film or a new season very soon.

Apart from the feel-good factors common in season finales there were the usual ‘24′ cliches where Jack Bauer continues to be on the run. Some fans have compared the ending of ‘24′ to that of ‘The Dark Knight’ where the Batman flees only to keep fans guessing how he returns. In the finale Chloe O’Brian and Jack Bauer figure out that just killing the Russian President Yuri Suvarov will not be worth it after all. They try to get the media card to the media to expose the truth but are stopped by Jason Pillar. There are quite shocking scenes when Jack bites a man’s ear off and stabs his neck with a pen. President Taylor’s last moment waking of conscience helps him to stop the treaty process and prevents Jack’s execution at the last moment.

‘24′ which is aired on Fox, received heavy criticism for its lack of depth and detailing. The objective was to show the security situation post 9/11 but it ended up becoming a extremely commercial action show which lacked proper character development. There was also a significant fall in the viewership and the ratings in the later seasons. For Jack Bauer fans though, the tough guy will be missed.
