Maybe it’s due to the dissapointing season that followed the first four amazing hours of season 6 of 24, but I was cynical for the first two episodes of season 7.
I was all over 24: Redemption. The change in locale was a fresh enough reboot to help me eliminate the sour (and stale) taste in my mouth after season 6. And ever since the FIRST trailer for season 7 (wayyyy back in October 2007, before the season was delayed a full year), I’ve been very excited about this season’s change in location, and of course, the much talked about return (and apparent heel turn) of Tony Almeida.
But hours 1 and 2 were solid. Not mind-boggling (the teaser for tomorrow suggests they saved all boggling of the minds for episodes 3 and 4), but I can already tell something is up with Tony. He succumbed to Jack without much of a fight by the end of hour 2? The teaser for tomorrow suggests he has a big secret to tell? The infrastructure-busting weapon he helped get is being passed along by a higher-up to a Sangala? Something smells fishy.
Could Michelle also be alive, still? Could Tony be undercover trying to infiltrate the terrorists from Sangala?
Hopefully we’ll find out tomorrow night.
