Arete was a prisoner of CTU and the FBI on a jet with Jack Bauer, Frank Hensley, and two other FBI agents. However, Agent Hensley shot the other two agents and the jet was hit by a surface-to-air missile. Hensley, Arete, and Bauer all escaped. Arete headed to Tatiana's Tavern in Queens and met up with his posse and got an attaché case from Griffin Lynch, then left in a van. A few hours later, Lynch detonated a bomb in the case, killing Arete instantly.
