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

Jack Bristow: Remember when I told you that during the time you were missing, I contacted your mother? That cipher text was encoded using a method that she devised.
Sydney Bristow: What does this mean? That I was in contact with Mom during the two years I was gone?

The noose tightens
22 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode starts with a scene which could have been taken straight out of a horror film when Sydney has a particularly bloody dream about the mysterious scar on her abdomen. Her mission of the week is to accompany Sloane to China in order to steal a weapon component for the covenant, a component she will switch of course. On the way back Sloane gives Sydney a key and a coded message, a code he could not break, he tells her that she posted it to him the day she reappeared in Hong Kong. Meanwhile Vaughn is tasked with going with his wife to Mexico where somebody has been arrested and claims to have knowledge of who killed Lazarey... Jack must act quickly if he is to protect his daughter.

This was a pretty exciting episode, it is always fun to see just how far Jack will go to protect Sydney, Victor Garber is great in the role.
