I saw a clip on Fox's 24 web site and it was hinting that Tony may not be dead after all. Right now, Jack needs his help, after all, look what Jack did to help Tony's mental state on Day 4.
What I'm wondering about is the Prez. Throughout the years, they have always taken a definate stance on NOT negotiating with terrorists, and he's bending to everything that Fayed brings to the table! Also, in hour 1, they kept talking about the high price that the US paid the Chinese to get Jack back. Wonder what that was.
