We bet you thought Tony Almeida was dead, didn't you?

Didn't you? Didn't you?! DIDN'T YOU?!??!?!?!?!?!??!

Alas, the writers of "24" have either completely lost it or got their swag back by bringing T.A. back from the dead. From executive producer Howard Gordon:

"Tony's uncertain fate near the end of 'Day 5' left the door open for his return. 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."

(No word on whether the beloved cougar from Season 2 will return as well.)

Hmm, we wouldn't call getting stabbed in the heart with a syringe and being ruled dead for an entire season very ambiguous. But at this point Tony coming back from the dead is the least of 24's plausibility concerns. Another strong indication that Gordon has turned to acid to get the creative juices flowing again is this disturbing quote confirming Michelle Dessler's death:

"No, she's definitely six feet under. Believe me, I know. We thought about that, too. Then we thought that everybody's dead except for Jack, and he's seeing ghosts."

The reverse Sixth Sense? Let's just stick with what works: Jack screaming and torturing people!
