Storyline

After finally discovering the identity of the Rambaldi "Passenger," who is Sloane's illegitimate daughter, Sydney and Jack seek the aid of Sloane, to track the "Passenger" down, first by Sloane meeting with the five key members of a secret government group called "The Trust" to gain access to a Rambaldi device to locate the "Passenger". Sydney then travels to Chechnya to a prison where she finally finds her half-sister, Nadia Santos, an Argentine national and secret agent in hiding. Meanwhile, after learning a secret about his father from Thomas Brill, Vaughn is kidnapped and tortured by Lauren and Sark, who are about to track "The Passenger" down themselves while Dixon, Weiss and Marshall race against the clock to find Vaughn before he is killed.

Talk about making an impressive debut!

Having orchestrated Sloane's "death and resurrection", Jack enlists him to find "The Passenger" with the help of the Rambaldi device called "The Hourglass". Meanwhile, Vaughn learns that his father was also a Rambaldi follower who was killed while trying to free "The Passenger" from KGB custody, and then he is kidnapped and tortured by Sark and Lauren for any new information he may have. This is the episode where we finally meet "The Passenger", who turns out to be an agent working for Argentinian Intelligence. She is played by Mía Maestro, and wow, can you say "love at first sight"? Not only does she look spectacular, but she also bears a striking resemblance to Lena Olin, who, of course, was playing her on-screen mother in Season 2. Her character also has a few tricks up her sleeve....the scene where she snaps out of her pretended catatonia and fights the prison guards alongside Sydney is perhaps the most purely satisfying moment in the series since Irina, Jack and Sydney were all together saving the world in Season 2's "Passage". Besides Mia's great casting, this episode offers plenty of twists and turns, from Lauren displaying some remaining traces of humanity (or does she?) to Sloane demonstrating just how important it is for him to listen to Rambaldi's "ultimate" message. The only reason I'm not rating "Blood Ties" even higher is Sydney's unbelievably easy entrance into the prison. *** out of 4.
