Storyline

Lauren stages a stunning betrayal by impersonating Sydney and blowing up the CIA offices to steal classified materials, and nearly killing Marshall in the process. But Sark is captured during Lauren's escape, and Sydney decides to play the impersonating game herself to learn where Laura is heading off too. Meanwhile, Vaughn comes face to face with his darkest demons in pursuit of his traitorous wife. Nadia must decide whether or not she can trust her father, Sloane, in the pursuit of Rambaldi's most priceless artifact and escape from CIA custody. During a mission to South Africa at a Rimbaldi artifact dig, Sydney has a some help and hindrance from Katya Derevko, as well as a final one-on-one fight with Lauren. Afterwards, Sydney receives a shattering revelation from Lauren that will make her question everything (and everyone) she thought she could trust. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Michael Vaughn: [to Sark] I'm not gonna kill you. That would be too easy. But I'll leave you so disfigured that when you walk down the street people will pity you. Lauren is gonna pay for the damage she's done to the people I care about, not for having had an affair with you. I don't give a rat's ass who she's sleeping with. So for the last time: where is she?

Misdirection

As season three comes to a close Lauren leads an audacious operation to steal the Rambaldi documents from the CIA by wearing a latex mask that makes her look exactly like Sydney; of course she doesn't sound like her so when Marshall tries to have a conversation with her she shoots him. As she tries to escape Sark triggers a series of explosions which causes chaos in the CIA offices. She manages to escape but Sark is captured, Jack suggests that Vaughn should 'interrogate' him. He tells the CIA that Sark wouldn't talk when in reality he told her where he could find Lauren. Once he catches her he tells her how he is going to harm her but before he can do anything he ends up with a knife in him and Lauren is free once more. She heads off to the site of the Rambaldi artefact and after tricking Sark Sydney is on her trail once more. When they meet again Vaughn gets his chance for revenge but not before Lauren tells Sydney about a safety deposit box which contains important information about her. We don't see what that information is but see that it has clearly had an effect on Sydney.

This was a pretty good episode but was unusual for a season finale as there was less resolution than I expected. The Lauren story line was concluded but we learn that Nadia had deliberately given the wrong coordinates so the Rambali artefact is still out there, we also know little of Nadia's loyalties; I assume season four will be her story. Throughout the series we've seen Jack's willingness to break the rules but I was left feeling uncomfortable with Sydney and Vaughn's vindictive desire to kill rather than attempt capture Lauren. Thankfully when she was killed it was self-defence not murder so was morally justified. After the final scene I'm looking forward to season four to discover what was in the files Sydney found in the box Lauren directed her to.
