Michael Vaughn: Noah Hicks - you mentioned him in the initial background report you wrote when you first made contact with the CIA.
Sydney Bristow: We met when I was a trainee. We actually dated for a while.
Michael Vaughn: Really.
Sydney Bristow: We kept it under the radar. SD-6 discourages, you know, fraternization among agents.

Sydney meets an old friend
7 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

In what is probably the best sequence of this episode, Sydney climbs to the top of a mountain in Italy that Rambaldi, in his prophecy, said that the dangerous woman he was describing would never see in her life. Therefore she is no longer under suspicion by the FBI, but she is now determined to find out what exactly happened to her mother and if she's still alive. And her next mission may actually take her closer to that goal - she has to go to Vienna to get a microchip from an undercover SD-6 agent that contains revealing information about Khasinau / The Man, who was also Syd's mother's boss in the KGB. Much to her surprise, the man who comes to meet her in Vienna and help her get the microchip is an old boyfriend that she had met during her first years at SD-6. "Masquerade" is a lesser episode of the series (and why didn't Sloane mention anything about the fake Page 47 to Sydney?), though it does give Victor Garber the chance to do some of his strongest acting so far, as Jack's frustration at having been so deeply fooled by his KGB wife comes to the surface. *** out of 4.
