I can't believe they killed President Heller on 24: Live Another Day! What does this mean for Jack? — Jackie
It's safe to assume that Jack's role in Heller's death will mean major drama between Jack and Heller's daughter Audrey. But even though you'd think Audrey could never forgive Jack's betrayal, there may be a glimmer of hope (especially since Audrey's husband also played along with Heller's death wish.) "Jack's question when this is all over is, 'Can he go back with Audrey? Is there a chance for the two of them?'"executive producer Evan Katz says. "In Episode 5, it was pretty clear that the two of them still love each other."

Now that Hank is back in the Hamptons on Royal Pains, does that mean that he and Boris are done? — Deb

"[Victoria] takes stock in the horrible things that Emily has done and the chaos she has rained down on the Grayson family," executive producer Aaron Harberts told my colleague Robyn Ross. "She's going to be pissed and she'll come out swinging. As Emily is trying to create a new, more positive life for herself... Victoria is going to be coming up behind her." But David will eventually be caught in the middle of that battle. "He's going to cause a lot of problems because he's at a point where these two women's lives intersect," Harberts says.
