Storyline

Rambaldi's catastrophic endgame begins to fall into place as a giant red ball version of the Circumference/Mueller device is found floating over a large city in Russia, driving the citizens mad with violence. After a wounded Dixon reveals that Irina is alive, Sydney, Nadia, and Jack set off to find her. It turns out that Irina had been captured, and then duplicated using Project Helix, in order to give the impression that she was dead. Sydney and Nadia discover Irina being held inside a camp in Tikal, safely in the clutches of Elena's private army. Irina had apparently been working to counter Elena's organization, the Covenant, and actually PREVENT the Rambaldi endgame. Irina is taken to APO and tells them of a page she destroyed, a page that was key to Rambaldi's endgame. Under torture, she finally broke and recreated it for Elena. After a short respite, Sydney, Vaughn, Jack, Nadia, and Irina board a plane parachute down, towards Elena, Sloane, the Circumference....and destiny. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

At the end of this episode several characters skydive from a plane. Shortly before they jump, we see a close-up of Vaughn. He puts on his helmet, lowers the face mask, but does not attach the chinstrap before jumping. Any trained skydiver would know better than to leave the helmet unattached, as it could fly off very easily in midair. See more »

Jack Bristow: Good to know

Irina: This has been lovely, but I should go back.
Jack Bristow: Tell me Irina... How did it feel giving the order? Was it difficult or were you able to remain cold, indifferent, were you amused?
Irina: Jack, this is cryptic, even for you.
Jack Bristow: Then let me be clear. How did it feel to pay a man, to kill your own daughter?

Back from the dead!
22 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode opens with a flashback to the moment that Jack killed Irena; after Dixon's statement that he'd seen Irena alive I assumed there would be some ambiguity about her death but when we see it there is no doubt that she is dead, Jack shot her in the middle of her forehead. Looking through her contacts they discover one was involved with Project Helix so it looks as though the Irena Jack killed was just a copy. This is good as Elena and Sloane have activated a giant Rambaldi device in a Russian city and it has made the people loose control and the only person who can deactivate the device is Irena. It still isn't simple, before going to Russia they have to break Irena out of captivity and persuade the CIA but to lock her up again. Once the mission has been approved Jack, Sydney, Nadia, Irena and Vaughn head to Russia hoping to deactivate the device before the Russians launch an air strike which would have disastrous results.

This was a decent episode that was notable for not featuring Arvin Sloane. It was nice to see Lena Olin back as Sydney's mother Irena, I liked the scene between her and Mía Maestro's Nadia when she realises Nadia is her daughter too, it was emotional without overdoing the sentimentality. Mía was also great in the scene where she and Sydney helped their mother escape from captivity in a Central American jungle, she showed that she can handle the fight scenes as well as Jennifer Garner who has being demonstrating her prowess in such scenes for years.
