An episode of great moral complexity
18 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

After a series of clues that Irina provides turn out to be correct and helpful, Sydney begins to feel somewhat closer to her. Afraid that Irina is only trying to manipulate Sydney to serve her own hidden agenda, Jack devises a plan to actually make that happen and convince the CIA to transfer Irina to another facility. This is one of the most psychologically and morally complex episodes of the series so far: Sydney for the first time feels drawn to her mother and is torn between her logic and her emotions; Jack is prepared to even work against the CIA if it means taking Irina away from Sydney - but is he doing it out of concern for his daughter, or as an act of revenge against the woman who fooled him? Can Vaughn say "thank you" to the woman who killed his father when she gets Sydney out of a very tight spot? And does Irina really want a chance at redemption, or does she have hidden motives? The scene where Sydney smiles, for a second and almost in spite of herself, to Irina is perhaps Jennifer Garner's finest acting in the series so far. I'm also interested in where they're going with the subplot of Sloane being "haunted" by his wife. *** out of 4.
