THE DEATH OF BILL BUCHANAN

Was it unexpected? -Yes.
Was it a traditional corny "24" death? -No.
Did they leave room for a catch (such as the resurrection of Tony)? -No. The clock didn't beep.
Was it heartbreaking? -YES!!

For me, this sudden loss came out of nowhere. Emotionally, it was a huge weight that came crashing from the sky and onto my fanhood... As a huge Buchanan supporter since his season 4 showcase, I've wanted to see Bill go everywhere with Jack. When Jack has his death, which we all know is coming sooner or later, the person I would want to be at Jack's side would be Bill, first and foremost. Unlike Tony, Bill is the kind of friend to Jack that you know will lead you with no surprises. That's the kind of person Jack needed, and I feel that it's a huge loss to the Bill-fan community and to Jack, himself.

But plotwise, his was so unexpected that you know the old "24" is back and the story is no up and running once more. Now Jack is motivated (more so than usual) and we see the first hint of personal emotion in this season. (Undoubtedly, Kim's return - thanks to Auseillo - is going to trigger the ol' Bauer Breakdown once more.)

Jack's reaction to Bill's untimely demise was one of the most heart-wrenching ones we've ever seen on the show.

Thoughts? Or just tears?

If anyone can upload the clip from this episode of Bill's death (and Jack's tearjerking reaction), much appreciated.

I know!! Oh, my goodness... I think my heart just shattered completely in that split second. And Kiefer is THE actor. That was the most incredible acting I've ever seen from him on the show.

It was a heartwrenching scene. I was not expecting Buchanan to die, but if it was gonna happen, it happened the right way. Buchanan died no less brave and fierce than I would have wanted and he did it in such a way that reinforced his loyalty to Jack. I also found it incredibly well acted when Walker sees Jack by Bill's side. She understood so much in those few seconds.
