Team 24 has recorded the Latin American promo of 24: Live Another Day and it’s got a huge spoilerific surprise. Click below to watch the promo.

President Heller is alive! Somehow his death was staged and this was all a ruse. Many fans predicted something was off due to the lack of a silent clock and they appear to have been proven correct.
The US promo was cleverly edited to make it look like Jack was telling Kate to get in the car, but this Latin American promo reveals that Jack was truly speaking to Heller. It seems that Belcheck is going to guard The President while Jack goes into the field and takes care of business.
Now we know what Mary Lynn Rajskub was referring to in her interview where she said “outrageous and over-the-top” things happen in the ninth episode. Rajskub emailed Howard Gordon saying “Oh my God, I can’t even believe what is happening right now!” after receiving this script.
It also explains Branko Tomovic’s recent interview where he promised “the best is yet to come” for Belcheck.
And 24 writer David Fury replied to a fan tweet yesterday with this mysterious tease:

More proof: 24 cast member Ross McCall tweeted this photo on June 10th during the final days of filming – you can see Devane in their group shot. Three days later he tweeted this photo during his final day of filming and you can see again Devane standing on his left. Director Jon Cassar shared this Instagram photo the same day and smartly left Devane out of it, but when you compare both photos you can tell it’s from the same scene.
What do you think about this twist? Any theories on how they managed to fake Heller’s death? Does it change your opinion of the eighth episode at all?
