Tony Almeida (Carlos Bernard) just might be more resilient than Jack Bauer. Bauer's wingman-turned-criminal-turned-wingman has been shot in the neck, held hostage by an assassin, and stabbed in the chest with a shot full of the deadly hyoscine-pentothal. But at the start of Season 7, Almeida returned from the almost-dead, revived by another injection of magic drugs.
Best comeback: Unfortunately for "24" fans, Almeida's return had been leaked months before the season premiere. But producers kept us hanging, wondering if he (and his shaven head and chin hair) had really crossed over to the dark side, for a handful of episodes.
