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.

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, ...

The "Man Of His Word" in the title is Sark - or so he claims. He promises to help APO track down Anna Espinosa and her bomb by leading them to the head of CRF. In exchange, he asks to see the dead body of Lauren Reed. Meanwhile, after having been shot by Anna, Nadia is in a medically induced coma, yet she holds information that is crucial for Anna's capture, so Jack is forced (yet again!) to take drastic measures with unpredictable consequences. "A Man Of His Word" is a strange episode: a lot of important stuff happens in it (Sark gets free, Anna gets captured, the head of CRF is assassinated, Nadia wakes up from her coma, etc.), and yet it feels a bit perfunctory. Anna's escape from the hospital after an assassination attempt on Nadia, and her fight with Sydney near the end, are 2 action highlights. David Anders is great value as always, and I still believe that his exclusion from the regular cast in this season was an unwise decision. *** out of 4.
