Damn, sorry if I spoiled it bro. Yeah, Paul's condition takes a nose dive. They are about to cut him open when Jack rushes in with a Chinese national that he kidnapped from the consulate that is equally as tore up. Jack pulls his gat and makes the doctor operate on the Chinese dude. Audrey freaks out on him and the CTU agents pull her away. Paul croaks.
Suffice to say, he's not getting any 'tang tonight.
Dont forget Jacks daughter. She is constantly kidnapped, shot at, lost in the woods, fighting weird dudes, wandering up on survivalists, running from nuclear explosions/virus attacks or stalked by mountain lions.
I wonder what the season finale will be though. It seems every year we are just left with the characters getting broken down mentally and/or physically.
Personally, I think Tony and Michelle will get back together... then one of them will die. We need the tragedy factor.
I think Jack's character will go through something huge between now and next season, whether that is in the finale or not. One way or the other, he will be involved with CTU, but I doubt it will be in a good way.
