A female CIA agent is publicly executed (via explosives) on a Berlin street. Sydney and Vaughn are assigned to pick up her investigation, and also rescue her partner (and fiancé), agent Lennox . What they discover is a research into advanced genetic manipulation that can make one person look identically like another. What's more, the doctor who invented this process experimented firstly on himself, and turned into another Lennox! Sydney and Vaughn find and rescue Lennox, but is he the real Lennox or the doubled one? This is the first "New Alias" episode ("I can actually go to the CIA through the front door", Sydney says), and as such, it is sort of a test - a test that the series passes with flying colors. This is a very cleverly written episode - the first spoken sentence already contains a clue and even the title is a pun. Sure, this "who is the real person X and who is the fake one" thing has been done before, but it's done so well here that it's hard to complain. Plus, the new "Francie" is already about 5 times more interesting than the very likable but still plot-slow-downer real one. Oh, and did I mention Sydney is in a bikini again? *** out of 4.
