The summer started off with a bang with the return of Jack Bauer in 24: Live Another Day.  While we're all excited to tune in on Monday nights to get our weekly dose of Bauer awesomeness, we can't ignore the fact that he's not carrying the show alone. The cast of female characters are just as fun to watch, making fan girls glued to the screen every episode.

So what makes the women of FOX's 24: Live Another Day so awesome?

They're Fearless Like Kate Morgan

Thank goodness she decided to stick around because she's the only one in that place who knew something bigger was on the horizon. But instead of hanging back like her boss wanted her to do, she gets right into the middle of the action, even if it means bending a few rules (or sneaking her way into a room with a gun toting Jack). And when it came to getting tortured in Rask's hideout so Jack can get a virus uploaded to her computer, she handled it like a serious pro. She proved she won't let anything get in her way (sounds like a female version of Bauer, doesn't it?)

They're Ruthless Like Margo Al-Harazi

From the start, Margo Al-Harazi is very hardcore using every terrorist guilt trip in the book and not isn't afraid to send those drones flying. From chopping off her own daughter's finger to killing her son-in-law, Margo will do anything to avenge her husband's death. Kids aren't off limits either, ordering her daughter to get rid of Navid's young niece just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. She doesn't tolerate insubordination either, sending a drone on an entire hospital to prove it.

Is 24: Live Another Day Meeting High Expectations?>>>

They Love Hard Like Audrey Boudreau

Jack manned up and ended things before going on the run. Four years and a marriage to Mark later, she seems to have her life together. But when Bauer shows up and rocks her White House world, it's clear that the flames of love still burn bright for both of them. As soon as they're alone, they're ready to pick up where they left off, hijacked drones and all. How can you not love that?
They're Loyal Like Chloe O'Brian

Even after her life was basically wrecked because she helped Jack, she doesn't hesitate to jump right back in the computer hacking saddle to get him whatever he needs. She's literally been through hell and back for him and if that's not a loyal friend, I don't know what is!
