Storyline

While Sloane awaits the outcome of his sentencing for treason, a mysterious associate of Gordon Dean approaches him for a favor in exchange for persuading the judges to rule in favor of acquittal. Meanwhile, Sydney and Tom must try to convince Rachel to help them catch the fugitive Gordon Dean who moves his operations to more secure locations. Sydney and Rachel return to the ruins of the Shed's offices in Prague for Rachel to reconstruction Dean's computer server so Tom and Dixon in the Cayman Islands can empty out Dean's bank accounts. Although they are successful, Dean discovers that Rachel is still alive which puts both her and Sydney in grave danger when they are trapped in a car that's hanging by an electromagnet controlled by Dean and his lethal associate Peyton who threaten to drop the hovering car unless Rachel's location is revealed.

Leaves you hanging (literally)
31 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

With Rachel's help, the APO team is able to hack into Gordon Dean's bank account and steal his funds. Infuriated, Dean realizes that Rachel is still alive despite the explosion at the Prague office, so he traps Sydney in a car hanging from a giant remotely-controlled electromagnet a few hundred feet off the ground, and demands that the CIA surrenders "Mockingbird" (Rachel's code name) back to him. The catch? He doesn't know that Rachel is hidden inside the truck of the car! It's a pretty scary situation, and admittedly Sydney's and Rachel's escape from it is a bit dodgy. But there are things to like about this episode: Rachel continues to grow as a character, the twist of the opening sequence not showing the complete picture has been done before but it works again, and this season's Sloane's story is finally going somewhere (he is released from prison - but at what cost?). On a personal note, I'm still having trouble deciding who is more amazingly, show-stoppingly beautiful: Rachel Nichols or Amy Acker? *** out of 4.
