'Torchwood: Miracle Day' Finale: Captain Jack Can Bring Death Back (VIDEO)

Captain Jack dies on 'Torchwood'Longtime fans of 'Torchwood' (Friday, 10PM on Starz) know that you get attached to a character at your own peril. They weren't particularly happy with the massacre in the BBC season three mini-series, 'Children of Earth.' But the one character who seemingly couldn't die, mostly because he is actually immortal, was Captain Jack, a good friend of some guy called The Doctor.

But in the Starz version of the show, 'Torchwood: Miracle Day,' everyone is immortal, except Captain Jack. And as it turns out, his blood holds the key to reversing that immortality. The only other remaining original 'Torchwood' character, Gwen, must shoot him and release his blood.

There were several characters kept alive by the strange miracle that made everyone immortal, including Rex Matheson, played by Mekhi Phifer. As Captain Jack went down, so did many of the walking wounded from the rest of the series. "We said goodbye to them all on the day that death came back," Gwen said.

This may or may not also be the end of 'Torchwood.' According to James Hibberd at EW.com, the show is close to renewal -- that depends on what creator Russell T Davies can come up with for a story. The main question will be, will it include Captain Jack?

Are you serious--did you even watch this season?

SPOILER

there was no story in this last season.
it was a grab bag of cliches and gimmicks.
the kind you see at a creative writing class in high school.
in fact I can not even see RTDs influence in the series.
it was like he went to American on vacation, and hired some writers who know nothing about the show,
and RTD told them to look up torchwood on imdb if they had any questions.

Jack survives in the end; he gave up his immortal-turned-mortal blood which reversed Miracle Day...and returned him to immortality. And he shared it with another character, Rex, who is now also immortal.

So, of course he'll be back! Jeez.
