The Story Behind 24's Shocking Death

SPOILER ALERT: This article reveals key details about Monday's episode of 24, so if you haven't watched yet and don't want to know who died and why, stop reading now! On Monday's episode of 24, Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) started off his laser-focused vengeance plan with a bang, shooting and killing shifty mole Dana Walsh (Katee Sackhoff) at point-blank range for what he perceived to be her role in the death of his girlfriend Renee Walker (Annie Wersching). Executive producer Howard Gordon knows that the fans won't be mourning Dana, but with only four hours left before Jack doesn't ride off into the sunset (see below), Gordon thinks it's important to explain what Dana's death represents in what he calls Jack's "descent into darkness."

'24' Preview: Jack Bauer Against the World

Chloe can't bring him back, and is now forced to go up against him. I guess we can make it official: Jack Bauer has gone rogue. Although I totally get where he's coming from. Imagine being betrayed by your President, the one person you're loyal to? She wants peace and you want justice, and even if he perfectly knows that those two don't mix, he decided to take on a hint of idealism anyway. Now he has a huge bag of weapons and a plan: take Dana Walsh, retrieve the evidence, and expose the truth to the world. Provided, of course, that Dana survives being tortured for the evidence. Oh, President Taylor, please jump back. What are you doing? The way things are, it seems the world really has collapsed--and they're blaming it all on Jack. So, on tonight's 24, he has to continue his quest for justice, to seek revenge for Renee's death, and perhaps to make things better at all costs--he's done it before, after all. On the other side, there's President Taylor, bent on keeping the peace treaty alive... but there are more people out to stop it now. She just can't get a break, huh? I'm betting it's the Russians, not taking President Logan's blackmailing lightly. If it's your interests at stake you really won't stop until you get it, right? 24 returns tonight from 9pm on Fox.
