Where Should 'Taken 3' Take the Franchise Next?

There are three constants in life: Death, taxes; and Taken 3
 
Oh, I know. Taken 2 just opened. How can we assume a third Taken will reach theaters some day? Because Liam Neeson’s second stint as former CIA agent Bryan Mills banked an estimated $50 million in its opening weekend, which almost doubled the opening take for the initial Taken. The sequel proved that there is a massive audience out there for Neeson’s lethal antics, and while the movie didn’t score favorable reviews, the ticket-buyers still flocked.
 
And they’ll likely support a third, so long as Neeson agrees to reprise the role. And EW.com already has begun speculating about where a third story could go. They’re joking, suggesting Neeson’s dog can get abducted during a Rio de Janeiro vacation. Don’t put this idea past Taken producers. 
 
Neeson, however, has his own idea. While he has been saying he will not return for a third Taken, he does say that Maggie Grace is ready to take over the franchise. However, take this with a grain of salt. 
 
“I think we're finished,” Neeson said to The Press Association. “Mind you, I thought we were finished with the last one."
 
You’re likely not finished, Mr. Neeson. You have a huge hit on your hands. And you will be offered vaults of cash to return for a third Taken. So tell us, did you see Taken 2 over the weekend? And where would you like to see the inevitable Taken 3 … um, “take” the series?
