    With the new season 2 weeks away I think it's time to begin the official discussion thread. Especially with the new preview on Fox.com.

    The season looks great. It looks like Audrey may be in charge of CTU...which is...strange...I wish they brought back Erin Driscoll. She had potential.

    Well, Bill Buchanan has Chapelle's job, so I doubt he'd step down to run CTU LA which would be a huge demotion...Audrey is the only other official we saw with Buchanan in CTU in the preview. It seems like she at the very least works there.

    no, he's not even on the show till episode 4. I found this on a spoiler site: (http://www.24spoilers.tvheaven.com ):
    SPOILERS



    Season Premiere Info

    What’s it called?
    7:00 A.M.- 8:00 A.M.
    Who’s responsible?
    Teleplay is said to be credited to “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”/“Angel” vet Howard Gordon.
    Does Jack start out with that hoodie-Cobain look he sported in the season-four DVD’s 10-minute season-five prequel?
    He does not. Jack starts the season looking pretty much the way he does in Fox’s season-five promos.
    Season one began with a plane crash. Last season began with a train crash. What action sets the plot in motion this season?
    Within the first five minutes, a sniper’s bullet pierces the brain of one of the world’s most famous political figures. A character we’ve met before this season will cradle this political figure’s brain matter and skull fragments.
    The big news?
    In the first 20 minutes, a woman we’ve met in a prior season will die. A character we met in season one will witness her death.
    Have Edgar and Chloe and Curtis gone the way of Milo?
    No fewer than 12 characters from prior seasons return for the season premiere. Here are 10 of them:
    07:00 DOD Vet Jack Bauer
    07:05 President Charles Logan
    07:05 Presidential Aide Mike Novick
    07:07 CTU vet Bill Buchanan
    07:07 CTU Vet Curtis Manning
    07:07 CTU Vet Edgar Stiles
    07:10 CTU Vet Chloe O’Brien
    07:12 CTU Vet Tony Almeida
    07:12 CTU Vet Michelle Dessler
    07:20 DOD Vet Audrey Raines
    Is it true, as reported on IMDb, that Tzi Ma is back for 5.1?
    IMDb lies about 5.1. If our intel is correct, Tzi Ma does not reprise the role of Cheng Zhi in 5.1. Ping Wu does not reprise the role of Su Ming in 5.1. William Devane does not reprise the role of James Heller in 5.1. Sean Astin is not in 5.1. Sabrina Lloyd is not in 5.1. And IMDb fails to list several returning cast members who will return in 5.1, including Bill Buchanan.
    But. But. Sean Astin. TV Guide said he was playing a CTU?
    Astin does not appear until 5.4.
    Is Chloe still working for CTU at episode’s start?
    She is. In her first scene, we learn that Chloe has something in common with fellow CTU vets Jack Bauer, Chase Edmunds, Michelle Dessler, “Soul Patch” Tony Almeida, Nina Myers, Curtis Manning and Kim Bauer.
    What does Chloe now have in common with Jack Bauer, Chase Edmunds, Michelle Dessler, Tony Almeida, Nina Myers, Curtis Manning and Kim Bauer?? I must know!
    Chloe likes to bone the occasional CTU employee!!
    Ew! Edgar??
    That. Would be. Telling.
    Is Audrey now working for CTU?
    No. She’s just comes to visit CTU on behalf of President Logan shortly after all hell breaks loose.
    Is Logan in D.C., as he was last season?
    No. Like all the other returnees, he is in California.
    Any new key characters TV Guide fails to mention?
    Two of the biggest are First Lady Martha Logan (Jean Smart), who has a history of mental instability, and Martha’s stunning aide Evelyn (“Rapa Nui” star Sandrine Holt).
    Is Milo back?
    Eric Balfour was busy with that witless primetime soap about Silverlake.
    Supersexy lesbian assassin Mandy? Naked cavorting?
    Not in the first four.
    Will this be a good episode?
    One of the best ever. The stuff with the Bakersfield teenager learning of Jack’s secret identity is priceless.
    How does it end, spoiler boy?
    A photograph of Jack Bauer appears on a computer monitor.

    I really hope Michelle doesn't die. If she does...I might have to just stop watching.

    why? I mean I like Michelle and all but she's definetly not my favorite character. Im curious about why it affects your viewership of the show. One of my favorite characters (Palmer) is probably gonna bite, but he's not what the show is about. In my opinion 24 needs its unpredictability, for that to happen major characters need to die and anybody outside of Jack Bauer (who IS 24) should be fair game.That's just my opinion though. And I respect your opinion. Im just curious about why that would affect wether or not you watch the show.

    I doubt it will be. I fail to see what could be served by killing her. Other than shock value, and I really hope they don't go that way. Killing someone simply for the sake of killing them is a bad thing.

    Honestly, I'll believe it when I see it. 24's crew has been known to leak spoilers and even film false takes. Since this season seems to be full of shocks, I wouldn't be suprised if everything we know is false.

    I can't wait for this season.

    I just finished Season 2, and I'm gonna start Season 3 in just a few minutes. This show is awesome.

    The spoiler hints say a female character from the last season dies in the first episode. Its got to be Michelle.

    :(

    no it says someone from a prior season, it's a character from season 1 who sees it happen.

    All the signs point to it being Michelle.

    EXACTLY after all the drama. That's why they'd do it! Cause 24 does stuff like that!

    I'm still not entirely sure these spoilers are accurate. Since this season seems to rely heavily on shock value, I could see multiple takes being filmed of several characters deathes and certain ones being leaked intentionally.

    24 cast and crew are known for their intentional misdirection. Remember last season? Carlos Bernard said in an interview that Tony dies in the finale. Tony is alive and well, post-finale though.

    It really wouldn't suprise me if our legs are being pulled.
