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.

Did You Know?


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 »

Talky but informative episode
8 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

"Full Disclosure" reminded me of two previous "Alias" episodes: "Q & A", because most of it is simply Kendall and Sydney talking (although this time it's Kendall who's providing nearly all the info), and "Phase One", because it changes the entire main premise of the season: up until now it was "What happened during Sydney's missing two years?". Now we learn what happened, more or less, and are ready to move on to a different main goal. This episode is very talky, but thanks to the brilliant actor Terry O'Quinn, the talk never becomes tiresome. It is quite impressive how all the pieces of the puzzle fit together to create an accurate overview of a 2-year time period in a matter of 30 on-screen minutes. If you go back to the start of the season, and remember some basic assumptions (Sydney was brainwashed, she killed a Russian diplomat, she had her memories erased against her will), it turns out that all of them were wrong - I like a show where the story is ahead of the viewer! *** out of 4.
