TheTVaddict.com has just learned that Carlos Bernard will officially be returning to the show this season as fan favorite Tony Almedia. Turns out Tony was only thought to be left for dead by millions of viewers, but in reality was alive and well.
“Tony’s uncertain fate near the end of ‘Day 5’ left the door open for his return,” said executive producer/show-runner Howard Gordon. “And since there was no silent clock at the conclusion of his last appearance – the 24 tribute to a major character’s demise – we always kept this as a possibility.”
WOW! No only do CTU agents have the uncanny ability to avoid traffic in Los Angeles, they can also go an entire day without hitting a bathroom AND survive deadly explosions! Since we’re reinventing the show here, why not take a page from NBC’s BIONIC WOMAN and give Tony a bionic arm or leg? Or bring a few other fan favorites back from the dead. Who wouldn’t like to see the return of zombie Nina Meyers, President Palmer or Bairus’ Mom.
