Question: In the season finale of 24, Teri Bauer (Leslie Hope) was shot. Did she die? Since there is a season two coming, can we hope to see her character alive again? Thank you. — Katie

Televisionary: Well, now that we've nearly ruined it for our overseas friends who haven't finished watching the series, let me warn them to stop reading this answer now lest they suck more of the suspense out of Fox's critically acclaimed cult phenomenon.

As fans know, poor Teri didn't live through the first-season ordeal faced by herself, her husband (Kiefer Sutherland) and their daughter (Elisha Cuthbert). And as far as Hope knows, that's the end of her character. She said in a recent interview that while she wouldn't put anything past the show's crafty writers and producers, she hasn't been told about any possible return to the show. Then again, would she tell us if she had?
