A decent main plot let down by a weak subplot
24 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The previous episode concluded with Sydney and her K-Directorate counterpart, Anna, opening the case containing the Rambaldi code; as this episode begins we see it is a binary code and it is going to be destroyed in seconds. The two women must remember it before it is lost forever. Sydney intends to give the correct code to Vaughn and give a fake one to SD-6 but Vaughn orders her to give then the correct code. The code gives the coordinates of a church in Spain; here Sydney must attempt to get something called the Golden Sun before Anna can get to it; of course Anna isn't far behind and they get into another fight. Not long after getting back she is sent on another mission to spy on an arms dealer in Morocco. This doesn't go according to plan as the man's body guard recognises Sydney and in the ensuing commotion a local agent is fatally shot. A man at the meeting is recognised as an explosives expert and he is linked to an Indian politician and peace campaigner who is due to give a talk in Brazil; clearly he is a target. Sydney and Dixon are dispatched to save him but things don't go to plan. Away from the main plot Francie persuades Sydney to help her spy on her boyfriend and learns he is indeed seeing another woman although when confronted he claims it is entirely innocent; Will is also continuing his investigation of Danny's death and appears to have made a breakthrough.

This was a decent episode with some really good action scenes and a very tense conclusion... extra tense if you are acrophobic! It was good to see Sydney fighting Anna again and the scenes in Morocco were both action packed and rather tragic. Unfortunately the Francie storyline distracted from the main plot although I admit I did chuckle at her surprise when Sydney knew 'spy stuff', Will's investigation wasn't particularly gripping but at least it could go somewhere interesting in due course.
