Picking up right from where the cliffhanger of season 4 left off, "Prophet Five" begins with the car crash that leaves Sydney and Vaughn unconscious, right after he has told her that he is not exactly who she thinks he is. Vaughn is then taken prisoner by a group of armed men, but Sydney manages to escape. Back at APO headquarters, a CIA officer is investigating Vaughn's affairs; he's under suspicion of being a double agent. When Vaughn escapes his captors and calls Sydney for help, she is prepared to risk her life and professional reputation to help him, but she demands answers, so Vaughn tells her about a secret project that his father was working on, and how that led to both of them getting new identities to evade some mysterious killers. The best thing about "Prophet Five" is that it quickly builds thick new mythology that will fuel the rest of the season; the controversial choice of killing off a major character, however, leaves behind a huge gap that remains to be seen if it can be filled by the season's newcomers. *** out of 4.
