Jack left his father to die (via airstrike) on the platform. His father HAD the circuit board on him, as the Chinese dude gave it to him when they detected the copter.
The Jack/Dad confrontation happened right near the boat Phillip was going to use to get away from the platform and meet up with the submarine.
My question: Couldn't Phillip have gotten on the boat (which has a homing beacon for the sub to find it (Chang told Philip that), gotten away from the platform, and still met up with the sub, and gotten away to China WITH the circuit board? Remember the White House detected the sub returning to China.
Something tells me Phillip is still in play, and could resurface next season or the season after.
If I missed something that makes any/all of the above impossible, please tell me.
i noticed the same thing. its possible they left it open like that on purpose, but since this season caught a lot of flak i dont think they will be re-using any of the plot lines.
But didnt they also show him lying there seconds before the missles hit?
Didn't Josh also shoot him right through the chest? The idea that he had survived crossed my mind as well, but I think it's a little too farfetched, even for 24.
It looked like the shoulder, something he could live with until he made it to the sub.
Even with Jack taking Chang into custody, he didn't really give the Chinese the kind of payback that they should be getting for torturing both him and Audrey. I wouldn't be surprised if Papa Bauer surfaces in China in a season or two, and Jack kicks the Great Wall down on top of him.
