I bet they could find a use of smartphones in the begging of this
5 June 2016 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

Quieter than episodes surrounding it, A Broken Heart focuses deeper on the characters, with extra attention given to the ones not involved in SD-6 espionage. It's humanity that this episode is filled with, and I kinda liked it. In my previous review, I wrote how show should balance less between Sydney's two lives and they did it here. We got to see Syd's softer side and her interaction with her friends and it was funny. God knows that if it wasn't, Sydney would have drown in her sea of confusion.

But, in the between of heartwarming scenes, we get to see why we came in the first place. Over the time, Alias' missions become shorter and more dangerous. In the first scene there are Sydney and Anna trying to remember really long code (and this is where smartphones could find "themselves" useful) and then that code leads them to Spain where she encounters Anna once again.When she gets home, she stays there for five minutes and she is already sent to another mission that will turn into another one that will end episode with a cliffhanger. Confusing, right? Try to imagine how she felt during those, I don't know, two days?

Even though episode sounds like a complete mess with scenes just thrown together, they actually did a very good job. Something that Alias never made a mistake with is how to tell a story. Everybody in the show is beautiful but the lightning adds one more + to the grade. And that market shop in Morocco is stunning (you know, show kinda tend to advertise a lot of world locations) .

For the new fans, "A broken Heart" is probably gonna be better the second time around, you know, once you get to know the story better. All things aside, I was entertained throughout the duration of the episode so ten stars from me.
