AKA Julian
6 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Rachel is sent to Brazil to intercept a transmission that the designer of a micropulse bomb will receive, arranging the time and place for the sale of the weapon. But someone else is also sent to the same destination, for the same purpose, by a different employer: that "someone" is none other than Julian Sark, who is currently working as a freelance mercenary, offering his services to the highest bidder (but isn't that what Sark has always been doing? Remember his classic season 2 quote "My loyalties are flexible"?). Neither Rachel nor Sark know each other's true identity, and after they both successfully carry out their missions, they flirt and they end up in bed together. When Jack and a female MI6 agent who were surveilling the bomb sale meeting get captured by Sark's current employer, the APO team has no choice but to "hire" him to help get them - and the bomb - back safely. Sark's guest return is very entertaining - at this point, he is probably my second favorite character in the history of the series, after Arvin Sloane - but "Bob", unlike the previous season 5 episodes, is a bit too stand-alone-ish for my tastes; it does little to advance the overall story. And it doesn't make much sense that the bad guy, after going to so much trouble to acquire the bomb, would just abandon it, take the money and run. *** out of 4.
