Trivia

Presumably as an in-joke, Sydney (Jennifer Garner) fights using a pair of sai. This is the weapon of choice of Elektra Natchios, the character that Garner played in Daredevil (2003) (released earlier that same year, 2003). See more »

Quotes

Julian Sark: I recently learned that Sydney Bristow murdered a father I never had a chance to know. I suspect you have your own reasons for disliking her; therefore I'm confident that you'll relay this information to the appropriate parties.

Above (the high) average episode
1 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

I am now one third of the way into Season 3 of "Alias" and I am happy to report that, so far, the rumors of this season being a comedown from the previous two can be dismissed as false: it's generally on the same level, perhaps even better than early Season 1, which had a little too much "downtime" with Sydney's "normal" life. There is very little normal about her life now. She can't even find peace in her sleep anymore, as the striking (and strikingly gory) opening dream sequence demonstrates. This episode is divided into two parts: the first deals with Sloane's first mission as a double agent, accompanied by Sydney, and the second deals with Lauren's investigation into the Russian diplomat's murder and Jack's "moral compromises" in his desperate attempts to hide the truth. Also notable is Sydney's fight scene with two Chinese security guards, which is easily the best of the season so far. My only reservation is that Sydney's face is covered by a mask during the fight, which makes me wonder how much of it was done by her and how much by her stunt double. Because, to be honest, the fight is SO good that I think only professional stunt-persons could pull it off. *** out of 4.
