Did You Know?


The opening scenes of this episode, including Sydney's venture through the corn-field, were clearly shot well-before the other scenes used - there are a few shots where Jennifer Garner is evidently not pregnant (for instance there's a shot of her belly when she raises the shotgun she acquires to shoot one of Vaughn's captors). However, from these scenes on, Jennifer is clearly pregnant, even though Sydney is not supposed to be (noticeably, at least) until the final scene of the episode (see in particular the party scene later on in the episode where Syd is holding a sort of hand-scarf that conveniently hides her belly from a side-view).

When Sydney reads off a list of numbers for a security system to Dixon over the phone, he types in the wrong number, and still gives her correct information to disable the security system. See more »


Ivan Curtis: [Vaughn's is being tortured] Just tell us what we want to know. I'm tired of playing these games.
Michael Vaughn: Quitter!

A Story of a Joke !

I love (Alias) there is no doubt about that unless we're talking about the seasons which came after 1 and 2 ! At the end of season 4 we knew the ugly surprise (not truth !) that (Vaughn) is a bad guy !, and then BOOOOM ! A car crash ! Some said it's just a joke between lovers and some said it's just a joke ! Now at the start of season 5 me and others are not having the highest hopes at all, because of that consecutive manipulation with all the characters, events and us ! At the beginning a kidnapping operation, then (Sydney) hiding from the evil shooters in a field of sugarcane !?, after that there is an interrogation with her from the American government about the man who used to be known as (Michael Vaughn) so the officer is asking (Sydney) : "you're Vaughn's lover who was going to be his wife and the protocol is saying that this is not a good thing !" or something like that which made me crying my head off : " What ?!! Are you kidding me ?!" because we've been watching this girl for quite some time working in the intelligence career with : her father, her mother, her half sister, her lover, and her half sister's father (Sloane) !! So don't you ever lecture me about any crappy protocol mister or otherwise blame the writers and I'll be with you in such public affair ! After a while we see (Vaughn) and I stopped wondering about his ever lasting light hairy beard and why did he never shave it from season 2 ? I think to look older in front of (Sydney) as her charisma is just more than what he got ? Anyway (Vaughn) is not (Vaughn); he is Mr. André Michaud !??, and when did he ever have the time to be that Michaud ?? I don't know! Now some of Alias's must Succeed mission to steal something like the whole last 4 -gone to boring- years and believe me I didn't catch the reason why we'll have this mission?, and for what?, but as always I shut my brain down and why not ? This is the most solid thing you'll ever have from this show : the action which was here just great, and I loved the part when she discovered in the middle of it (and by a mistaken phone call) that she is pregnant right before she and (Vaughn) jumped from a cliff. After that a small twist then (Vaughn) got killed ! OH MY GOD this girl must change her career as soon as possible considering that this is the second fiancé she loses because of the spaying business !!, and after a pretty farewell song you'll find out that the whole season will be about the dark past of dear (Vaughn) or whoever we knew under that name ! Who can believe this ? Maybe the teenagers as the only remaining audience of it, but I don't think they'll like it or be content with it ! And in the last scene we watched (Sydney) in the stupidest wig in history (she looked really too scary to a laughable extent !) in a bar asking about the woman who will tell us about the truth, but it doesn't need any woman to know and understand well after season 3 and 4 the hard truth that this show is losing it and turning into a silly joke by its recklessness, triteness and fooling with all what made it big once.
