Four months after Vaughn's murder by the traitorous Gordon Dean and his associate Ivan Curtis, a grief-stricken Sydney teams up with Renée Rienne, a French freelance assassin and fugitive on the CIA's most wanted list who knew Vaughn from their past association with Prophet Five, to ask for leads in order to track down the killers before they can strike again. Meanwhile, Jack enlists a reluctant new agent, Thomas Grace, as Vaughn's replacement at APO, and Weiss struggles to decide whether or not to accept a promotion that would force him to move to Washington D.C. and leave his colleagues at APO. During this time, Sydney, Dixon and Weiss travel to Amsterdam to track down Curtis who is in the process of buying a potential weapon. Written by Anonymous

In pursuit of Vaughn's killer
28 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Four months have passed since Vaughn was gunned down and Sydney has finally found a lead that takes her to his killer, Ivan Curtis; the problem is he is in possession of a vial of 'nuridium'. This vial was one of six stolen and it is believed his organisation have the remainder and its most likely use is to make a bomb; a bomb that Marshall estimates would be fifty times as powerful as the one dropped on Hiroshima. Sydney is not pleased that this means they will have to let Curtis escape. It won't be long before they meet again as they had planted a tracker on him. By the time the tracker activates he is on a plane en route to Pyongyang in North Korea with the rest of the nuridium; this means that Sydney, Dixon and Weiss will have to board the plane mid-air if they wish to stop him! Once on board Sydney makes a startling discovery about the real use of the nuridium but is interrupted by Curtis; after a brief standoff Sydney gains the upper hand but Curtis would rather die than tell her anything about the people he is working for. As the episode ended Vaughn's replacement arrived.

After the surprising revelations in the previous episode this one was more routine; that isn't to say it was boring though. There was plenty of action including a gunfight aboard a plane, a scene where Weiss is attacked with a sword and Curtis's 'escape' where Sydney kicks him though an upper-storey window into a canal! The boarding of Curtis's plane, which was almost identical to a scene in the film 'Executive Decision', was far-fetched to say the least but if you can't suspend your disbelief you shouldn't be watching 'Alias'! The regulars put in a good performance as did guest star David Marshall Grant who played Curtiss; pity we are unlikely to be seeing him again!
