In the scene where Sydney jumps from a high floor into a pool we expect to see two things happening, but they don't. First of all such a jump would force a lot of the pool's water to jump out as if a bomb exploded. That does not happen and we can only see the water's reaction as if someone from the ground level had just taken a plain dive. Also such jump with the above consequences should have first splashed all of the surrounding guests and even if that did not happen, it should have made them curious about the strange woman that has just jumped from a building floor inside the pool, half-naked, in the middle of a party. Yet we see no reaction and a man just gives her a towel as if everything is all right. See more »

Arvin Sloane: [to Lauren] I must admit, I was concerned for you when Sydney resurfaced. I remembered seeing her with Vaughn: their relationship reminded me my own with my late wife. It was the kind of bond that even death cannot sever. Hmmm. Well, apparently I misjudged.

Great cliffhanging episode
17 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

By now series three has found its footing and the viewer is used to the fact that two years have passed of which Sydney has no memories and only one clue as to what happened; a video which shows her murdering a man who turned out to be Sark's father. Here we learn more about her missing time when Sydney goes undercover to retrieve a bio-weapon which The Covenant wants to get its hands on; she doesn't know her contact but he clearly knows her as he kisses her passionately and calls her Julia. Before letting her go on a mission with then they give her a test: steal a necklace from a hotel room before the police can get there, it was a close call but after stripping to her underwear and diving from the balcony into the pool below she escapes and is on the team. Things don't go according to plan though when they realise she is meeting Vaughn and he is CIA, she is forced to take drastic action to avoid blowing her cover.

I really enjoyed this episode, there was plenty of action, the series plot was advanced and we were left with a great cliff hanger ending.
