Sarah in Chicago: Can you please tell us if Jack and Renee will really find happiness this season on 24?
As executive producer David Fury teased, Renee is a damaged person upon returning next season. However, Kiefer says they are really trying to find peace for Jack, which includes all things that have the potential to make him happy. "People would like to see him at least have the option to have a good life," Kiefer Sutherland tells us. "We stripped a lot of those components over the years, by virtue of killing everybody, that whether he wants to live or die seemed to become innocuous—like who cares, there's nothing really to live for. What we did for this season is to really try and create something that would make Jack want to live," i.e., a relationship with Renee.
