In this episode, Sydney finally learns the shocking truth about her missing two years from an unlikely source: FBI Special Officer Kendall. Kendall whisks her away and talks to her from the privacy of an airborne 757 jet. According to Kendall, Sydney was captured by the Covenant after her fight with Francie/Allison, held captive in Russia for over a year and brainwashed to become an assassin. But Sydney only pretended to be brainwashed and contacted Kendall who became her contact and handler, thus giving him information about the Covenant and about their quest for Rambaldi artifacts. Sydney also staged the murder of Andrian Lazarey, and then deliberately had her memory erased to prevent the Covenant from knowing about secrets she had learned about Rambaldi's findings.

Originally it was planned to spin out what had happened to Sydney during the two years she had disappeared over the entire third season. However, the fan reaction had been lukewarm to the show withholding the full details so the decision was taken to reveal all in just one episode. See more »

No sooner have the CIA got their hands on the Rambaldi Cube than they lose it again when a secret government department come and take it away... they don't keep it long though as it is soon stolen by the Covenant. That night Sydney is kidnapped and awakens to find herself on a plane with FBI Director Kendell who tells her that he knows exactly what had happened during her two missing years.

It turns out that Sydney had had her own memories erased and had asked Kendell never to reveal what happened, however with the theft of the cube he had to tell her to get an idea how to get it back. During the first half of the episode we see flashbacks of some of the things that happened in the missing time; seeing how she was taken by the Covenant and how they attempted to brainwash her and later how she worked with Lazarey to retrieve and then re-hide the cube.

Thanks to Marshall's curiosity they are able to locate the cube again and go to prevent the Covenant from using it. The episode ends with a surprising reveal that will almost certainly become the main theme of the second half of the season.

This was a good episode, we got to learn quite a lot about what has being going on then were given a new concern at the end. There was also some good action scenes towards the end.
