Naaah. I don't for a second think this is how the writers are going to paint themselves out of this corner. Besides, it would shoot my whole Mike Doyle theory out of the water.

I wish we knew what happened to the 24 “Limbo” victims. These are the characters that were fairly crucial to the major plot lines, and since have not been seen or heard from – but need to be explained. People like ex-President Logan and his unstable but cheeky wife Martha. (And dear Aaron Pierce, who didn’t get nearly enough face time for my liking). Folks like current President Palmer. Or doomed traitor Reed Pollock. I envision them in some nebulous waiting station; we’ll call it the "Behrooz Araz Green Room".
I do think that Mike Doyle will be on the side of right. By that I mean helping Jack – which could put him on the side of wrong, but for the right reasons. Sure, he scooped up Josh and made off with him without explanation or blessing. I can see Jack being freaked out, but I also see him reasoning the whole thing out, and assuming/hoping/praying for a logical explanation.
Doyle’s been a little shady – he had to be, carrying the mantle of Red Herring and all but so far the consensus is he’s more of a Dudley Do-Right than a Snidely Whiplash. So, he could stick around and help out Jack and CTU. Things could change by next season I suppose; in the fall Rick Schroder is slated to direct Raising Cole, a film reported to be currently in development with Red Truck Filmworks.
