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. But they soon find themselves under siege in Renée's warehouse hideout by a group of mercenaries who want to reclaim Renée's father when he awakes up from his cryo-induced sleep... so it appears. Meanwhile, Rachel and Dixon travel to San Francisco to assist Marshall in the break-in of a vault facility to copy files to learn more about Renee's father. Elsewhere, Sloane takes matters into his own hands to get himself back into APO and continue his quest to find a cure for Nadia by influencing/blackmailing a influential senator to let him have full access to the CIA's accessories.

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.
