But he didn't. So now, in a lab somewhere else, a cryogenic cylinder is opened, revealing a shrink-wrapped head in a cloud of vapor. It's unwrapped, and the head is shaved, revealing a tiny raised mark in the shape of William Bell's doodle. Curtis eats another pear, watching the next stage in the process: there's a pale, naked body on a slab, wrapped in plastic from the waist down. The head, now unwrapped, is positioned near the severed neck. But judging from the way the silvery puddle beneath is being sucked up and the wiggly bits of the exposed neck are visibly knitting themselves back together, it won't be severed for long. As if this isn't scary enough, the reconstituting corpse is played by Sebastian Roche, last seen almost killing Jack Bauer. Still want more scary? Fine -- his eyes pop open. Okay, I think my work here is done.
