'24' showrunner talks series finale
MAY 24, 2010
By Matthew Belloni
"24" showrunner Howard Gordon has been with the real-time thriller from thebeginning. Here he talks about Monday's finale (which he wrote), his favorite season, and the plans for the "24" movie. (Warning: spoilers galore)...
THR: So Jack lives. I know you’ve got the movie planned, but how much did you seriously consider killing him in the finale?
Gordon: We certainly considered it. We considered killing him earlier (in the season) as an off-rhythm thing. But every time we went there and penciled it out, it didn’t feel satisfying. It felt frustrating or it felt affected or something.
THR: What about killing other characters like Chloe or Kim Bauer?
