Marcus Dixon: [to Sloan] I'd have said this earlier, but when I get done, it's likely; you'll have me relieved of my position. And I didn't want that to happen while Sydney was in the field. I've asked myself, countless times, why I never saw the true nature of SD-6. For a while I punished myself, over it, finally I realized, my only failure was that of imagination. Despite all the evil I'd encountered, I never imagined a person could exist, someone as thoroughly toxic as yourself. I won't make that mistake ...

Sydney gets infected
1 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode was much darker than most; it opens with a woman leaving the class she is teaching at Amsterdam University and seeing two gunmen, although when one of her students follows her out there is no sign of them and the woman shoots herself. It turns out that she and her husband are CIA agents investigating a new drug. Sydney and her father go to Amsterdam to find her husband and discover what they had found. Unfortunately the man is clearly under the influence of something and attacks Sydney like a wild animal, biting her on the neck. Concerned that she might now be affected she sees a doctor but he can find nothing wrong. Marshall managed to salvage enough data from the man's computer to lead them to his supplier in Prague. While there with Vaughn and her father it becomes clear that Sydney is indeed under the drugs influence as she has horrific hallucinations. They learn that the drug will permanently affect her brain if they can't get an antidote for her. She doesn't make it any easier for them to help her; her delusions have made her believe they are trying to kill her causing her to fight against them.

After the previous fairly light episode this was very dark; Sydney's hallucinations were like something out of a horror film given the amount of blood that was spilt in them. The story was gripping and it felt as if Sydney could come to harm even though the viewer knows that she will never get permanently damaged. Away from the main action the scene where Dixon tells Sloane just how untrustworthy he believes him to be is brilliant; Carl Lumbly and Ron Rifkin were great there.
