Satisfying

The Russians have secretly developed a powerful new explosive (officially denying its existence), and now it's been stolen. On their first mission, Sydney and Nadia have to find out when and where its sale will take place; on their second mission, they have to stop the sale and retrieve the canisters with the explosive. This is the best season 4 episode since the premiere, and I think it's not a coincidence that it was the first of this season written by Monica Breen and Allison Schapker: they often had good ideas in the past, like the way Lauren and Sark decided to team up in "After Six" or the way Nadia was introduced in "Blood Ties". And Nadia is, in fact, one the main reasons "Detente" hits the mark: she finally gets a larger part of the action, and she even gets to save the day at the end. This episode captures (particularly on the first mission) the fun of early season 1, combined with the attention to the characters and their relationships (particularly Sydney, Sloane, Nadia, and Dixon) that was at its strongest in season 2. And although it's never really explained how that seemingly airheaded girlfriend (Olga Vilner, who is quite the looker) is able to hold her own in a fight against Sydney, it is still a cool surprise to see. *** out of 4.
