Storyline

When Sydney is taken into custody by the NSC honcho Mr. Lindsey, Jack and Vaughn have no choice but to ally themselves with Sloane to rescue her. But with only hours to spare before she is forced to undergo a radical surgery to recover her memories, they must put together an extraction team, headed by freelance operative Brill. Meanwhile, Lauren faces an impossible choice: side with the NSC who she wants to believe is doing the right thing, or with her husband in their rescue of Sydney. Written by Anonymous

So....thanks for caring
4 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sydney is arrested by the NSC and Jack once again resorts to desperate measures to save her. Meanwhile, Lauren is caught in a conflict between her conscience and her official duties when she is asked to write a report on Sydney's "fair" treatment, when in the facility where she is being held she is subjected to brutal "interrogation" techniques like electroshock "therapy". This episode is a little too reminiscent of the early Season 1 "Color Blind", with the emphasis on Sydney's mental and physical torture. It also suffers from a particularly fake-looking CGI shot near the start. I think the most notable things about "Breaking Point" are the continuation of Lauren's transformation into a more rounded character, and Pruitt Taylor Vince's fine guest starring performance (Richard Roundtree, on the other hand, is used for name purposes mostly). *** out of 4.
