Sydney and Tom travel to Marseilles, France when they discover that Renée has stolen the cryo container which contains the cryogenically frozen body of her supposedly dead father.

Did You Know?


Marshall: I hope none of you suffer from arachnophobia, 'cause this little six-legged freak (picks up the small robot he created) is not pretty, but she gets the job done. I call her Charlotte, for obvious reasons. Reference to Charlotte's Web, a children's book by acclaimed American author E. B. White. First published in 1952, it tells the story of a barn spider named Charlotte and her friendship with a pig named Wilbur. The story has been adapted for film three times: 1973, 2003 and 2006.

Pretty terrific episode
2 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Sydney and Thomas pay a visit to Renée Rienne in Marseilles when they discover that she has just stolen a substance that is probably intended to "wake up" the body inside the cryogenic freezer that was also stolen a few weeks ago from the DSR by someone using identical tactics. Renée indeed manages to wake up the body - and it turns out to be her long-lost father. But soon all four are besieged by a mysterious, well-armed group of French mercenaries who want the man who came "out of the box" back. Meanwhile, Dixon, Marshall and Rachel go on a mission of their own, to copy some medical files that may help shed some light into the whole situation. And Sloane, following the instructions of his "benefactor" Gordon Dean, has to resort to blackmail to ensure his return, with full access restored, to APO, where Dean wants him as a double agent. This episode has three story lines that are equally interesting, some pretty spectacular explosions, a cool twist at the end, and Sloane up to some of his old tricks: the time flies by. Renée is presented as having almost superhuman abilities, but maybe those will be explained later. *** out of 4.
