Last hour, Jack took the traitorous Tony Almeida into custody and neutralized the canister of pathogen that the terrorists were planning to unleash in a subway station. But there are still unresolved issues as Day 7 draws to a close in the two-hour season finale. The terrorists have Jack's daughter, Kim, and are using her as leverage to get Jack to help Tony escape. And is Jack Bauer really going to die from his exposure to the pathogen?

Brand-new Bachelorette Jillian Harris says a hot tub scene with The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick made her father's jaw drop, but she's opting not to clear the air about what happened — and called a query about the liaison "probably the most inappropriate question ever."
The hot tub hookup was one of three close encounters Mesnick shared with the final competitors on The Bachelor. He later said goodbye to Harris to choose — kind of — between Melissa Rycroft and Molly Malaney.

The Bachelor, Melissa, Jason
If you're mad at Jason Mesnick for dumping his fiancée on the air, you can stop: Both Mesnick and ex Melissa Rycroft now say they broke up before the taping of The Bachelor: After the Final Rose.
Of course, you now can fire up the ol' outrage over the fact that what we watched Monday night wasn't a breakup at all, but rather a relationship post-mortem presented to viewers in a way that made it look like a breakup.
Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss says he approached both Melissa Rycroft and Molly Malaney to be the next Bachelorette before Jillian Harris, the third-place finisher on the Bachelor, was finally given the honor.
When Mesnick proposed to Rycroft three months ago, Fleiss began courting Malaney, he said Wednesday.
Jason Mesick and Melissa, The Bachelor
He's been branded "a bastard," but is The Bachelor's Jason Mesnick a liar?
Mesnick has said contractual obligations led to his messy public goodbye with former fiancée Melissa Rycroft at the taping of After the Final Rose Part One, which aired Monday. But the show's creator and producer tells TVGuide.com that Mesnick was under "no contractual obligation" to dump Rycroft on-air.

As the next installment of ABC's hit dating show stars premieres with a returning Bachelor looking for a second shot at love, we've got to wonder: Why would anyone want to go back to a show that has such a poor track record when it comes to couples who stay together? Is it possible that TV isn't the best place to look for love? We decided to take a look back — at both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette — to see where all the contestants are now.
Chris Harrison, DeAnna Pappas on The Bachelorette
It's a good time to be a Bachelorette: ABC's hit series is conducting its first search for a female star of the hit series, after years of choosing her from among the contestants who don't find a love connection on The Bachelor.
Chris Harrison, the host of both shows, talked to us recently about the search, and about the next season of The Bachelor, which returns with a two-hour premiere on Jan. 5. In another first, the women will compete for the affections of a single dad, last season's The Bachelorette runner-up Jason Mesnick. DeAnna Pappas rejected him in favor of snowboarder Jesse Csincsak, but the couple's relationship, alas, has come to an end.
The happily married Harrison, who also co-hosts Hollywood 411 on the TV Guide Network, talked about DeAnna and Jesse, whether you can find true love on TV, and whether we'll ever see a gay Bachelor or Bachelorette.
Instead of waiting for Dr. Phil or The View to call, Jesse Csincsak (who recently had his upcoming wedding to Bachelorette DeAnna Pappas called off) got on the web and posted his feelings on the unexpected split. TVGuide.com caught up with the professional snowboarder in Hollywood at the kickoff of Ubisoft's newest video game Shaun White Snowboarding and got his side as to why he went public on the emotional wipeout.
Why go on YouTube.com to present your side? Why not just issue a joint press release?
Jesse: We were going to do that, but some people found out [before we wanted]. The easiest thing seemed to be to hop on the webcam and put it on YouTube.com. I did it because I wanted to tell the fans what happened. [DeAnna and I] have gone our separate ways...
