New trailer for season seven of 24 - VIDEO
The video for the new season of 24 premiered yesterday. It first aired on the bigscreens in NYC's Times Square, became available online shortly after, and aired nationally later in the evening during game two of the World Series. A lot of you have probably already seen it, but may be wondering: hey TV Squad, why are you reporting on this a day late? Well, this sat forever on the "assignment desk" and to be honest, I think we were all afraid of incurring the wrath of you readers for spoiling the fun. Well I stepped up and here's your warning: read on with caution, because after the jump there is a trailer and I do talk about the season seven plot. There. I said it.
Here we go. Jack is in Washington D.C. on trial for his "crimes" and CTU no longer exists when Day 7 kicks off. Then, as expected, comes the twist.
He's back. He's bad. I love it. While the preview doesn't elaborate, my best guess is that Tony blames the good ol' US of A for Michelle's death. Not to mention the fact that Jack left him for dead. For those that are royally confused by Tony's return, don't forget that when we last saw him in Day 5, the clock wasn't silent at the end of the episode where he was stabbed with the syringe. So the possibility for his return has always been left open as the silent clock generally signifies a death on 24.
In a bit of a Die Hard 2 rip-off, Tony is hi-jacking planes like it's his job. Wait... it is his job now. I love the set-up though. Last season tried to make it personal for Jack by introducing family members that no one really cared about. This season, same intended goal, but based on just the preview it already works better because it's personal for Jack and us since Tony is such a fan favorite. Smart. Anyway, cue Jack Bauer kickin' ass and takin' names and check out the video to see how the rest of the season starts out.
