Firstly, he was in the back of the car during the pursuit by Jack in the helicopter, and secondly he was seen as the explosion blew up the wall of the apartment. He was also going to do to the bath drowning scenes, but Carlo felt comfortable enough to do them himself.
  • Also in "Day 6: 1:00pm-2:00pm", he played a terrorist at Abu Fayed's apartment, who fired at the CTU TAC team from behind a door but was shot to death by them.
  • In "Day 6: 10:00pm-11:00pm", he doubled for Adoni Maropis as Abu Fayed, during Jack's climactic fight with him.
  • In "Day 7: 6:00am-7:00am", he portrayed one of Levinson's orderlies trying to extract the bio-pathogen from the body of Jack Bauer. As they were about to move him, Jack regained movement and slashed this orderly in the neck with the scalpel, killing him.
