While Nadia is in a coma after being shot by Anna, Sark is taken into APO to help them infiltrate the Cadmus Revolutionary Front and retrieve the stolen bomb, but in return he demands to see Lauren Reed's corpse and that Vaughn open her coffin for him. Sydney learns that the comatose Nadia may be the only person with the Intel they need to intercept the bomb, so Jack is forced to prematurely wake Nadia from her coma, endangering her life, which doesn't please Sloane when he finds out.

When Sark sees Lauren's bullet-riddled body, he seems surprised when he figures out Vaughn was responsible. But in the previous episode "Echoes," he says, "Was it the infidelity or the espionage that motivated you to kill the woman I loved?" So if he knew then that Vaughn killed Lauren, why is he surprised here? See more »


Michael Vaughn: Sark gave us the contact protocol, to meet the CRF. It's a coded message in the classified ads. If all goes as he says it will, we should have a response by the evening edition.
Sydney Bristow: Then what, you and I go in alone?
Michael Vaughn: You mean is it a glorified date?
Sydney Bristow: That's not what I meant, but is it?
Michael Vaughn: No not exactly, we've gotta take Sark with us. He insists we won't get through the front door without him. So we rely on the explosive tracking device we put in his neck. If he tries to burn us, in any way, um, ...

Sark gets away!
5 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode starts off where the last one ended; Nadia is in a coma after being shot and Anna Espinosa has the bomb. The only way to get to her seems to be to get Sark to help them and past experience shows that he is not to be trusted; still they have no other choice. Sark agrees to take them to meet the leader of the group Anna stole the bomb for; the meeting however does not go well as the contact is killed by Anna and she liberates Sark from the custody of Sydney and Vaughn. It looks like they have lost both of them until Marshall recovers CCTV footage that indicates that Nadia learnt where Anna would be selling the weapon. To get this information Jack wakes her from her coma despite being warned that it would be dangerous. Luckily she is okay and gives him the information that leads to the recovery of the weapon and the capture of Anna; Sark however escapes. When Sloane learns that Jack has endangered his daughter it is clear that it has damaged there working relationship.

This was a good episode with some great fight sequences; when Anna and Sydney fought it felt like they were really going for it. Guest star Gina Torres put in a fine performance as Anna. As always the scenes between Sloane and Jack were great, their verbal sparing matches the physical action in the series and they don't even raise their voices.
