ADIOS, T! – Well, clearly I'm not the guy to go to when it comes gauging who's gonna live and die on episode telly: I continue to hold out hope that a character'll pull through long after all the reasoning members of the audience have given up. This propensity makes me the ideal audience for horror movies (I'm surprised more often than anybody) and was probably developed from years of reading superhero comic books - where dead, after all, is never dead for long. So when this week's hour of 24 opened with the image of Tony Almeida getting his head covered by a sheet, the first thought I had was, "Shit, I went on the record last week wondering if he'd really snuffed it!" Teach me to underestimate the anything-for-a-jolt ruthlessness of 24's writing pool . . .
