Chloe O'Brian and "the fainting"
*If you haven't yet watched the season finale of 24, go far, far away from this blog post.*
Of all the developments that bugged me during the two-hour 24 season finale, the Chloe O'Brian plot turn was on my list of irksome moments.
In the midst of the end-of-the-day chaos, while Chloe was trying to track down the whereabouts of Jack Bauer's evil papa, she collapsed as her ex-husband Morris rushed to her side. Immediately, the folks who were with me in the TV Squad 24 live chat jokingly suggested that Chloe was pregnant, but I didn't think her ailment would be that obvious.
It couldn't be a pregnancy because having a pregnant woman faint is so cliched. Yet there she was, minutes later, lying in a hospital bed in the CTU medical unit telling Morris she was going to become a mama.
I don't know the time frame in which the seventh season of 24 will commence, whether the writers will zoom ahead in time so we won't be forced to endure Chloe's pregnancy, or witness (God forbid!) the birth of the love child or else they'd have to change the 24 intro to:
