Problems arise, however, when APO is forced to take the hard drive, which triggers an alarm.

The enemy within
13 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Realizing she is being held captive on a moving freighter ship, Sydney temporarily breaks free and sends an S.O.S signal to APO. Unfortunately for her, her message is intercepted by someone in the CIA working for Prophet Five before it can reach its destination in full. Jack proposes the risky plan of breaking into the CIA headquarters to retrieve the deleted transmission, and the rest of the APO team agrees to help. Back on the ship, Sydney is captured again and prepped for a mysterious medical procedure. This is one of the lesser "Alias" episodes, definitely not as good as its predecessor ("The Horizon"), though it does have its moments. The most intriguing part is probably Tom's side story, where he uses APO resources to locate the killer of his wife, but when he goes to meet him in person, his agenda turns out to be much different than expected. Nice to see Amy Acker moved up to the main cast list, but why is Élodie Bouchez credited as a "special guest star" when she does NOT appear in this episode at all? *** out of 4.
