Question: Is Elisha Cuthbert really going to return as Kim Bauer for Season 5 of 24?

Answer: Yes, she's back for what my 24 mole describes as a "multiepisode arc" towards the middle of the season. Suffice it to say that the distressed damsel will be as pissed as a trapped cougar when she finds out that Pops faked his death. And no, James Badge Dale will not be back as her hubby, although I'm told that Chase's fate will be explained. I'll have more 24 dirt next week, promise.
