Kim Bauer not returning in 24 series finale

Question: Now that Renee has been killed off in 24, is there a chance of Audrey returning for the 24 movie? —Patty
Ausiello:
Yes, there’s a chance. “Any character who is still alive has been discussed and is being considered,” says exec producer Howard Gordon. “But I’m not ready to disclose any names because it could change.”

Question: Any chance Kim will return for the big 24 finale? —Charlie
Ausiello:
No. According to e.p. Howard Gordon, “Once upon a time she was [going to be in the finale], but we went in a different direction. The story took on a darker hue that didn’t include her.”

Not really sure what Howard is trying to pull here considering he already said Audrey Raines would remain an “unresolved” mystery just two weeks ago (to Ausiello himself even – how could they both forget so quickly?). I guess after Gordon pissed off the Renee fans this week, he’s trying to damage control and woo back the Audrey crowd by giving them false hope she could return. I find it amusing that Howard pretends things “could change” when the finale has already been written and filmed completely. Heh, my mistake – Gordon was talking about the movie here. Doh!

And I’m pretty angry at Howard Gordon’s Kim Bauer response, personally. Long-time fans, did you ever expect that Jack’s daughter would be completely left out of the series finale? Kim’s not dead or anything, just left out. Not even a short phone call split-screen. It was bad enough that Bauer loses his love interest (AGAIN) but now we get cheated out of a final Jack/Kim scene too. Seems like Bauer can’t have romance nor a family – give the guy a break once!

whatever. scenes with Kim always make me cringe/glance around nervously for a cougar.

For those following what I said on the article about People magazine. I have something new to say.

Now I’m afraid. The last few interviews have me feeling that in a few weeks I’ll see that 24 died with Renee. I’m still keeping an open mind but these interviews are starting to feel like they’re being a bit desperate.

I hope I’m wrong on the 24th of May. I’ve been looking forward to seeing how it would all wrap up.

Please Mr. Gordon, do not have let 24 have died with Renee. Seven episodes left to air, I hope you put everything you had into them to make it a great end.

that’s no surprise yet what about little Teri?

@Tyler stop being over dramatic, Renee is not the reason 24 was created in the first place. IMO, when the clock winds down on the last hour that’s when 24 has taken it’s last breath.

@Hope

Not me. That was someone else who happened to have my name and thought they could get some people to read him.

No, I think it’ll be a great finale. I mean they’ve had seven great finales, why should eight be any different? Yes Renee is dead and yes I will miss her more than most characters that have died. But I surely don’t think the show died with her.

You got a combo of Michael Madsen and Gregory Itzin over the final hours of the day, that alone makes me really excited to see how it plays out.

“I find it amusing that Howard pretends things “could change” when the finale has already been written and filmed completely.”

While I agree with everything else you said, I think Howard was talking about the movie when he said things “could change” and not the finale. And as far as I know, the movie has NOT been written completely and has yet to start filming.
