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.

The Past Must Be Blast (For The Sake of Season 4 !)

"When the merchant becomes bankrupt he just searches for his old Ledger accounts" that's an old saying we have in Arabic which applies so correctly to the case of those very days of Alias. The writers discovered that there're no good ideas anymore so they went to the good old days of Alias to raise the character of (Anna) from death, bring back Mr. Sark in person, and continue the very long, very damned, secret of (Rambaldi) ! That could be the kiss of death for Alias in its fourth season. But they DID IT and with the excellent mark (despite some silliness of course).

Well, the plot is great not like we used to watch (and predict !) during the earlier ones in that season, so I can assure that you'll be so tense, anxious and on the edge of your chair till the very end like the good old days. There are so many twists, surprises, and good thrilling time : the obscure negotiation between (Sark) and (Sloane), a visit to (Lauren)'s grave, (Sydney)'s disguise as (Lauren) to meet a terrorist, the murder of that terrorist !, (Anna)'s attempted to murder (Nadia) in the hospital, (Anna)'s escape from the hospital, the good chase to find (Anna), then the expected cat fight between (Sydney) & (Anna).. Just WAW !

It got some memorably well-made moments like : (Anna)'s escape from the hospital by the hydrant, witnessing for the first time ever Sark's emotions over (Lauren)'s grave as a true lover of her in front of (Vaughn) her wounded husband/killer too ! So (Sloane)'s feelings for his injured daughter (actually great performance by Ron Rifkin in here as frozen evil man whom got emotional), and the return of (Melissa George) as (Lauren Reed)'s corpse only for one shot !

Yes, this is good TV guys till you think about it !! Why is that ? I'll tell you : 1 – How (Jack) could be that genius as a doctor to treat (Nadia) successfully and make her awake from her coma ? (while no doctor could !), and if he is like this why didn't he do it from the start ?? Well, the answer would be to fabricate a face to face confrontation between (Sloane) as Nadia's loving father and (Jack) which ends the episode powerfully ! 2 – During the attack on the hospital when did ever (Sloane) have the capacity to transport his unconscious daughter to another place and replace her by blood sacs in such too short seconds ?? 3 – When (Anna) helped (Sark) to escape from the nightclub she knew about the tiny bomb in his nick ! So from where exactly she already knew such a top secret which (Sark) himself didn't know ??!

But HEY it was fun altogether as a cool episode. Rather too cool for this season in specific. Simply it's the gold effective formula of the old Alias as a nice drama, action, thriller, Sci-Fi which also (by the escape of Sark at the end and vitalization Rambaldi's secrets, inventions and prophecies) promises more and more. BUT would the rest of this season have also this mix in that fine quality ? .. Well.. Watch it and answer by yourself !
