Jack plays dirty
20 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Sydney goes to Moscow to retrieve a map which is vital to aid in the recovery of a book of her mothers detailing all of her activities she runs into Sark; to get away from him with the map she sets off the alarms but needs help to get out of the building; this her mother provides. Jack is getting more and more concerned about Sydney's reliance on her mother's information so plans to destroy that trust forever when Sydney gets her to decode the map. While this is going on Sloane has asked Jack to find out about the mysterious calls he has been receiving; Jack sends Dixon to investigate and he discovers a very surprising name in the hotel registration book... Sloane's late wife! In a third plot strand Will is continuing his drug counselling and is approached by a woman who believed his story about SD-6 despite him denying it; clearly he will have to persuade her that if it was a work of fiction if he is to remain safe.

This episode started well with Sydney's exciting escape from the freezing water in Siberia and continued in similar fashion with a thrilling escape in Moscow and a spectacular explosion in Madagascar. Away from the action Lena Olin continues to impress as Irina Derevko; I just hope Jack's actions don't mean we'll see less of her. Talking of Jack; he was at his most devious in this episode; he could almost tip into a caricature of himself if Victor Garber didn't do such a good job in the role. The background story concerning Sloane and the mysterious calls suddenly got a lot more interesting when his wife's name came up... she is meant to be dead! Having watched this episode I look forward to finding out what will happen to Sydney's mother and learning who is messing with Arvin Sloane.
