Apr 13, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Spoiler Alert. This item is about some of the back-story regarding last night’s (Monday, April 12) episode of "24."

This information is courtesy Michael Ausiello at EW.com. It comes from an interview that Ausiello did with "24" showrunner Howard Gordon.

1) "24," which has made a habit of killing off major characters was at it again last night, with Renee Walker, played by Annie Wersching, biting the dust. Gordon said he told Kiefer Sutherland and Wersching at the beginning of the season that her character was getting killed this year.

2) AUSIELLO: I thought it was interesting that you cut away from Jack and Renee for two whole acts after they started making love. Did a lot of thought go into how long it takes Jack Bauer to make love to a woman?
GORDON: Oh absolutely. And, by the way, Jack and Renee were not by any means done. I think this was probably closer to Round 1. I mean, [Jack] was just getting a glass of water [when  Renee was shot]. So yes, we were very sensitive about it because it’s a very sensitive thing. We really wanted to do it as tastefully and virile-y as possible for a man like Jack Bauer.

AUSIELLO: I can only imagine how that conversation went.
GORDON: [Laughs] Trust me, it was a funny and a fun and a real conversation.

AUSIELLO: Was Kiefer involved in that discussion?
GORDON: Yes, he was.
