Synopsis

Tony appeals to the administrator

Tony Almeida - in solitary confinement for the last eight years - is dragged into an interview room with agent Vanessa Diaz, and an administrator. The administrator begins by stating that Anthony Almeida is requesting permission to transfer from Super Max Segregated Housing Unit to General Population. Diaz states that the Department of Justice opposes any reduction to Almeida's sentence. The administrator outlines Tony's crimes - conspiring with a terrorist group, hijacking an airliner, homocide, possession of mass destruction - and asks why Tony should be considered for release from solitary.

Tony explains that within the prison there are gangs, Mexican cartels and Al-Qaeda, and he offers to be a source to relay information he hears back to the government. They would trust him - despite his former CTU credentials - because they know what he has done. He is desperate to reform and hates the man he once was, the man his wife would be ashamed of. He has accepted that he will die within the prison, but wants to help try to save at least one life.

Tony attacks Diaz

It quotes Tony and an as-yet unidentified man which states, "I want to see that judge's wife and kids murdered in front of him, then see what he thinks. I'll do it myself if I get out of here."

Given the evidence, the administrator decides to decline Tony's request. A guard begins to undo Tony's cuffs, and Tony manages to overpower him and lunges at Diaz. He attacks her, strangling her for a few seconds before two guards pull him from her, tazing him to return him to his cell.
