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

Trivia

Number 47: The designation on the helicopter transporting Sydney at the beginning of the episode is W547SA. In the shot where the helicopter carrying Lindsey and Lauren to Camp Williams flies overhead, you can see the clear blue sky. But in the shot inside the helicopter, it looks like they are flying through clouds. Everything is white when you look through the helicopter windows. Marshall leaves his computer terminal with the NSC information he was trying to hack into on Camp Williams when NSC agent Lauren enters the room. Isn't there some sort of CIA protocol for leaving classified information on one's screen when they leave their work station? See more »

Captivity
23 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

With Sydney in the custody of the NSC Jack must work quickly to assemble a team to break her out of custody before NSC Director Robert Lindsey subjects her to interrogation techniques that would probably leave her brain damaged. To do this Jack works with Sloane so that it will appear to be a Covenant operation. Meanwhile Lauren finds herself being asked to write a report stating that Sydney is being treated in a legal manner, when she learns just what is happening Lindsey attempts to blackmail her.

Once again an episode where Jack breaks the rules proves to be gripping. The scenes of Sydney's interrogation are fairly gruelling so that even though we know deep down she will survive there is a feeling of danger. This episode features a cameo by Richard "Shaft" Roundtree as freelance operative Brill.
