This is an 11-minute peek at the fifth season of 24. Well, actually it's about 8 or 9-minute look as the first few minutes just rehash the ending of Season Four.
"Jack Bauer" (Kiefer Sutherland), whom we last saw walking on railroad tracks out in the middle of somewhere, down in or near Mexico, is dropped off by Tony and Michelle. Jack is officially "dead" and must start life all over again with a new identity. Only a few people at C.T.U. will know this fact.
I will miss seeing the actress, Reiko Aylesworth, who played Michelle. I never got tired of looking at her face. I guess we've seen the last of her, Tony and President Palmer (Dennis Haysbert, who now stars in "The Unit.) They will be sorely missed by me.
What we see in this prequel is Jack now in Chicago. How or why he's three is not explained. He almost looks a street person: dirty, unshaven, hair down to his shoulders and wearing old clothes. He meets Chole, who now looks different with her hair down, and the C.T.U. analyst warns Jack that somebody got into the files and knows he's not dead, and she's worried it could be someone who will try to kill him. She's there to warn him.
Seconds later, Jack then gets into this car chase after someone in a car fires at him, and there is a mysterious man on a motorcycle taking it all in? There is no explanation of what it all means. Why he is in Chicago and who these people are who are after him, it doesn't say. I guess I'll have to watch Season Five to find out. That's the whole idea of this "prequel."
