Here’s the first clip of 24: Solitary featuring the return of Carlos Bernard as Tony Almeida.
We learn that Tony Almeida was sentenced to life in solitary confinement eight years ago, which means this scene takes place approximately two years after the events of 24: Live Another Day.
In the clip Tony is requesting to be moved to general population so that he can serve as an undercover “inside source” and provide actionable intel about other prisoners. He states that his desire for revenge consumed him and that Michelle “never would’ve approved of the man I became” following her death. He accepts the fact that he’s going to die in prison, but hopes to save at least one life so that he can be worthy of Michelle’s love again.
To see if Tony’s request was granted you’ll have to buy the 24: Live Another Day Blu-Ray set this Tuesday (it’s not available on the DVD release in the US). The full featurette clocks in at seven minutes.
It seems the writers are setting up a redemption arc for Tony. Would you forgive him for all the bad things he’s done?
