Did You Know?


Although Vaughn mentioned in previous episodes that he loved Sydney, this is the first episode that he says the actual words "I love you" to Sydney. See more »


When Dietrich's laptop asks for a password the phrase "Tragen Sie Kennwort ein" appears - a literal and way too formal translation of "Enter password". Usually, only "Kennwort" or "Passwort" would be used. See more »


Michael Vaughn: Syd, we do missions like this all the time.
Sydney Bristow: Not on our own. Not rogue. My father wants us to bring this in to APO.
Michael Vaughn: You talked to him again?
[pauses, Sydney nods her head]
Michael Vaughn: Yeah, well your father and Sloane, will never let me keep technology like this for myself. And besides I don't trust them. I don't trust anybody; except you.
Sydney Bristow: Then what do you suggest?
Michael Vaughn: We come clean with APO, like your father wants, we draw up a mission that will get us Nightingale, and then we run a counter mission.
Sydney Bristow: Like the ...

Marked improvement....
13 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

....over the last couple of episodes. Largely because it focuses on a running storyline (Vaughn's search for the truth about how, why, when and IF his father was killed), instead of giving us yet another mission-of-the-week, of the kind that were fun to watch in early season 1 but not so much anymore, not after all the questions and issues that have been raised. Vaughn's investigation into the word "Nightingale", given to him by the woman who ran the orphanage where Nadia grew up, has come to a dead end; Sydney asks her father to use his level-six clearance to see if the files have been classified; an unknown third party contacts Vaughn and offers to tell him the truth about his father, but what he wants in return forces Sydney and Vaughn to plan a countermission during the latest APO operation. Meanwhile, Jack and Sloane's alliance comes out in full force; their objective is to locate Irina Derevko's OTHER sister, Elena. But only one out of these two teams will get what they want out of the operation. Vaughn's opening dream sequence is quite striking, and even the action is better than in the last few episodes, with Sydney threatening to break a man's neck if he doesn't answer her questions. That's the kind of Sydney I would like to see more often. *** out of 4.
