Mixed feelings on this one....
24 December 2009 | by See all my reviews

On its own, "Resurrection" is good. As a season finale, however, it is a bit of a disappointment as well. The Rambaldi device - The Sphere Of Life - which supposedly contains his "essence", and which is the reason everyone was looking for "The Passenger" for so long, is still left unrevealed. Sloane and Nadia, who are now the only ones who know its true location, have too little screen time. Instead, "Resurrection" seems more focused on resolving the Lauren situation, with first Vaughn and then Sydney herself more determined than ever to kill her. The series creators probably knew that they couldn't top the Sydney-Allison fight at the end of season 2, so what we get is a much shorter, but still well executed fight most notable for the new pieces of information it provides. And those pieces lead to the ultimate season cliffhanger, which is a mere shadow of the stunning endings of the previous seasons, but does have a great close-up of a certain character, and does help explain that character's actions in the last 2 episodes. The best part of the episode is probably the (literally) explosive opening, followed by the completely unexpected Katya Derevko twist. Like they did in much of season 3, Lauren and Sark steal the show with their twisted relationship: they're both cold-blooded, conscienceless killers, but they actually care for each other. The entire (regular and guest) cast of "Alias" is excellent, but Ron Rifkin, Melissa George and David Anders were the standouts of this season (I'd like to add Mia Maestro to the list, if she had a bigger role). *** out of 4.
