From TV Guide’s Mickey O’Connor:
Since 24 is almost over, everyone is going to die now, right? — Mark G.
MICKEY: Wow, that’s a dark spirit you got there, fella. Welcome! The continuing movie talk has squelched the idea of Jack making the ultimate sacrifice in the series finale. But I do know of two surprising deaths that will take place before the show’s May 24 finale. One will be shockingly emotional; the other will just be shocking.
Just about anything is possible in terms of death with this being the final season (I never thought they’d take out Renee), but here are some of my predictions:
- Cole Ortiz: Freddie Prinze Jr. was cast in a pilot “No Heroics” for ABC on March 18 – the day before the final episode pair started filming.
- Dana Walsh: Katee Sackhoff was already filming a new pilot “Boston’s Finest” for ABC on March 18 (again, the day before episodes 23/24 started).
- Ethan Kanin: Bob Gunton recently teased “earth-shaking” shocks
