Sabina: [Sabina is cleaning Vaughn's wounds] I've seen worse. Use a few stitches I suppose.
Vaughn: That won't be necessary.
Sabina: Fine, let it scar, who knows it may toughen you up again. I saw the look on your face when I killed that guard. I saved your life
Vaughn: Thanks...
Sabina: Don't tell me you're torn up inside. I thought you agency boys were tougher than that.
Vaughn: It was him or me, I'm okay with that.
Sabina: Could've fooled me, you haven't stopped brooding since we left the hospital.
Vaughn: Well, maybe it's because I don't like being here....

Vaughn goes rogue!
13 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

As this episode opens Dixon is chasing two people and shots are fired; as Dixon collapses to the floor the man who shot him removes his balaclava and we see that it is Vaughn! The action then moves back forty-eight hours to show how we came to this point. Vaughn has not returned to APO after stealing the transformer coil in the previous episode; instead he is meeting the man who told him to steal it. After refusing to hand over the item until he is told more about his father he is told he must do a second job: help steal an 'instruction manual' that is being transported by the CIA. This mission appears to be going well until his partner in crime opens fire on the CIA, which ultimately leads to Dixon being shot. At this point Vaughn confronts his contact and demands to know who hired him. While this is going on we learn that Nadia has been seeing her aunt Katya Derevko in secret, when Sydney finds out she goes and sees her aunt to tell her not to see Nadia again; here Katya tells Sydney that it wasn't her mother that hired somebody to kill her, she goes on to explain how she could find out who it was… when she finds out it turns out it was the same person who tried to corrupt Vaughn; somebody they both know very well.

This was a gripping episode that constantly changed the viewers' opinion about what was going on; has Vaughn become corrupt in his search for his father? Can Katya be trusted? Is Sloane up to his old tricks and just who is the man we see in the final scene? Michael Vartan put in a good performance as Vaughn and it was good to see the excellent Isabella Rossellini back as Katya. As always the action sequences were well choreographed and exciting.
