A missing piece
9 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

With the help of Sark and his team, Sloane slips from Sydney's hands in Switzerland, along with the device that he needed to complete his weapon according to Rambaldi's instructions. The CIA loses his tracks for a while but picks them up again in Afghanistan, where he has apparently gone to do business with a wealthy opium smuggler. Problem is, the only one who knows that location well is Dixon (because he had previously been sent there on an SD-6 mission), and he refuses to work for the CIA. So they have to find another way in, and Will is invited to his first office meeting to drop some ideas. Meanwhile, Sydney and Vaughn discover that her house is full of visual and audio bugs. This episode opens with a vivid car chase / crash (actually the first time Sloane gets so involved in an action sequence), but is probably more memorable for Sloane's "firebomb", a pulse weapon that, instead of going "boom", increases the body temperature of the people near it to the point where they catch fire and are quickly reduced to piles of ashes. The fact that Sloane activates this weapon near the Vatican embassy in Mexico, and the final revelation that his causing of so many deaths was simply a step in an elaborate game to get his hands on a missing part of another Rambaldi document, make him more vile, more inhuman than ever before. At the same time, when he has the chance to kill Sydney he doesn't do it, because in his own twisted logic she is "his finest accomplishment". *** out of 4.
