Sydney and Nadia work well together
3 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a vial of 'Black Thorine' is stolen from a Russian laboratory the trail leads to Boris Tambor, an arms dealer who will happily sell it to the highest bidder. To find out where the deal will take place Sydney and Nadia must break into his hotel room and copy his computer's hard drive; the problem is that rather than going out as usual he is staying in to watch the football. They gain access by befriending his girlfriend and get the data they need. This leads them to the location of the deal: a luxury boat in the Mediterranean. They go in to retrieve the Thorine but find that rather than having a vial he has several flasks of it; clearly he knows how to manufacture it. While Sydney and Nadia are busy with the safe the deal goes wrong, Leo Orissa, somebody Sloane knows from his SD6 days kills Tambor in order to take over his operation, surprisingly he had more than a little help from Tambor's girlfriend. While Nadia attempts to get the flasks Sydney confronts Orissa telling him she is working for Sloane and that he want half of the operation; clearly Orissa knows what Sloane is capable of as he agrees and after a few more words from Sydney he gives them the location of their lab too. While Sydney may be doing well with her job she still has a poor relationship with her boss Sloane; clearly she still doesn't trust him and hasn't got over the fact that he has been the cause of the deaths of people she loved.

This was an entertaining episode with some great fight scenes, as well as more than one tense moment. The highlight for be was watching Sydney and Nadia acquiring the data from Tambor's computer and PDA while talking to him Jennifer Garner and Mía Maestro are great in the roles. While Sydney's dislike of Sloane is understandable it is a little overstated now she is working for him again… although I suspect she might be right about him still being bad, Sloane, as played by Ron Rifkin, is a great villain.
