What Kim Bauer’s Probably Doing Instead of Donating the Stem Cells That Could Save Jack Bauer’s Life


Spoiler Warning—we found out on Monday that there’s an experimental treatment that may save Jack’s life! All we need is a blood sample from a family member…his daughter, perhaps? Yeah, it’s got to be Kim, as she’s the only Bauer family member who hasn’t (a) died at CTU, (b) died in a CTU operation, or (c) died from Jack putting a plastic bag over her head and suffocating her.

But things with Kim are…complicated. So what’s she probably doing instead of donating the stem cells that could save Jack’s life?

Maybe she’s…

  1. Running from mountain lions…in the California hills…in the dark…all alone…again
  2. Reprising her award-winning role as Lady MacVictim at the Malibu Renaissance Festival
  3. Explaining to her toddler that there’s no chance of Mommy dying in CTU Medical now that CTU’s been categorized as a rogue government agency and has been shut down under the authority of a grandstanding, ego-driven Senate probe that really, really wants to send Pop-pop to jail for the rest of his natural life (which, at this point, should be about 24-36 hours)
  4. Shabby chic-ing up her house real good, because there’s nothing that’ll cover up the bloodstains like a loose-fitting, ticking stripe slipcover
  5. Translating ancient Aramaic oral histories at UCLA’s remote language lab in the Kurdish region of northern Iraq (a girl’s got to make a living, right?)

    Oh, how our Kim has grown up…still bleached blonde, but as of the 4/13 episode, willing to take her lumps for the past and donate those stem cells. Not that Jack will accept them or anything.

    I guess the bright side is that Jack can still count on his best friend/ace in the hole Tony to stay loyal to the end…or can he?

    OK, so (spoiler warning) now Kim is unwittingly caught in the clutches of the post-hippy, suspiciously friendly, agent-killing baddies that she met in the airport waiting area. Sheesh. Just like her to make her Dad squeeze in one last impossible Kim rescue just before he kicks the bucket.

    Who’s wishing she’d donated those stem cells now, huh Kim?
