Vaughn is under investigation and Irina is trusted to go in the field again
12 April 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a Russian arms dealer is killed by Sark to get the Rambaldi documents in his possession he doesn't realise he has already sold them. Irina knows who the purchaser was so the CIA must trust her once again if they are get to it first… they need to use her because if it becomes known that she was the one who possesses it they can use her and the document to catch Sloane. Of course this all relies on her being trustworthy. While this is going on there are also two other story lines; firstly Sydney is asked to look into some activities of Vaughn's that the CIA believe to be suspicious and in the second fake-Francie hypnotises Will into giving her information he has learnt while working for the CIA.

This was a decent episode with some good action scenes; I particularly liked the opening scene where the Russian was assassinated in a plummeting lift and the scene where Irina acquired the Rambaldi documents. The film also had a fine ending but I won't spoil that here. The secondary story lines seemed a bit of a distraction although I'm sure the way fake-Francie is getting information from Will is going to be important in forthcoming episodes. It was good to see Lena Olin get a larger part in this episode as Irina gets more screen time here than she has had since the time she accompanied Sydney and Jack to Kashmir... while she does a fine job when her character is confined to her cell she gets to demonstrate a greater range when she goes into the field.
