Lesser episode
27 September 2009 | by See all my reviews

After opening the mysterious box in Berlin, Sydney and Anna find a self-destructing code. They both memorize it, and when Sydney goes to where the code leads, Anna is waiting for her. Syd comes out on top (no pun intended), and gets a new mission: to go to Morocco and stop a terrorist's plans. Much like the previous episode, this one begins excitingly (it's a treat to see Sydney and Anna fighting each other, plus Gina Torres is utterly gorgeous), but then it almost stops to a halt with subplots dealing with Sydney's friends, before resuming the action near the end. I can see why those scenes are included - to give us a feeling of Sydney's "normal" life and add more humanity to her and other characters - but maybe they could be placed at the start of the episode, so that it will build to the best parts, instead of giving you the best parts first. *** out of 4.
