Sloane decides to betray Dean when he learns that Nadia's condition will probably not improve. They meet at a race track in Dubai to exchange a network access card which Sydney and Renee stole in Rome, leading to Dean finally being captured. The APO interrogates Dean for information on Prophet Five. Yet another mysterious stranger asks Sloane to eliminate Dean. Meanwhile, Nadia comes out of her coma for a short time after a nameless nurse leaves her room. Under orders from his new Prophet Five contacts, Sloane kills Dean during a routine reboot of the APO's surveillance network, and APO misses its chance to hack the network, but learns Prophet Five is linked to intelligence agencies around the world. At the end, control of Dean's terrorist cell is given to Kelly Peyton. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


When Jack and Syd are trying to move the crib into the bedroom the crib of course does not fit through the doorway. However in season 4 when Nadia had that same bedroom the door was bigger and it was a sliding door. See more »


Jack Bristow: [Sydney has just injected Dean with a version of LSD that Marshall modified] How long until we can interrogate Dean?
Marshall Flinkman: Not long. In about an hour, he'll think your God. He'll tell you anything you want to know. Of course, if you'd like, I could facilitate the process.
Jack Bristow: Let's do that.
[Psychedelic music starts playing in the background]
Jack Bristow: I see you've done this before.

He is still conscious? Hit him again
5 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Sydney and Renée intercept an access card that was meant for Gordon Dean. He wants it back, and he tasks Sloane to get it. But Sloane, desperate over Nadia showing no signs of improvement, confesses his "arrangement" with Dean to Jack and Sydney, and offers to help APO arrest him, by using the access card as bait. The mission succeeds, but when Sloane discovers that Dean's organization mysteriously has the power to help Nadia peacefully wake up from her coma, he agrees to carry out a highly risky "assignment" on their behalf - but their demands won't stop there....Another solid episode that continues to prove season 5 is, so far, superior to season 4 at the very least, and may rank even higher when all is said and done. Renée's fight with one of Dean's men at the start is terrific, the entire "capture Dean" mission is exciting, and Sloane's situation is beginning to look like quicksand - the more he tries to get out of it, the deeper he sinks in. Nice humorous / sentimental touch at the end with Jack, Sydney and her baby's crib. *** out of 4.
