No, Really, She's Back This Time

The least-awaited return to prime-time TV finally happens tonight: Elisha Cuthbert's Kim Bauer returns to 24 tonight.

Thankfully Cuthbert, who plays the annoying, underwritten daughter of Jack Bauer, will only return for a few episodes.

A misleading USA Today article a few weeks back led many (including us) to think the character was returning sooner than tonight. The reprieve was welcome, but, alas, it seems to really be happening .

We can only hope the mountain lions get the job done this time.

3 other geekspeak:

  • Don't get me wrong, I was all for having her disappear for the last 36 hours, but they seriously should have at least mentioned what happened to her somewhere in the story line. It's like she disappeared and nobody ever spoke of her again. For a character who seemed to motivate Jack an awful lot in the first season, he seems to have forgotten her. Sloppy writing if you ask me.

  • I disagree. She was referenced in the season 4 opener when they explained that she and Chase had settled down out of town, in the season 5 "prequel" (available on the season 4 DVD -- or online) when Chloe tells Jack how Kim took his "death" very hard and at the beginning of the current season when Jack sent for her.

    If you're a regular viewer like the "24" geek that I am, then you know she's hardly been ignored.
