Storyline

Now working as a double agent for both the CIA and the evil SD-6, Sydney meets her CIA handler, Michael Vaughn, who instructs her on her missions, while her father, Jack, also gives her words of wisdom on the inside of SD-6. In her next mission, Sloan sends Sydney and Marcus out to find clues to a missing nuclear bomb hidden somewhere, in which a member of the Russian Mafia knows the secret. Meanwhile, Will continues to grow obsessed with Danny's murder and begins his own investigation behind Sydney's back who told him to leave the matter alone. Written by RealLiveClaude

Trivia

When Sydney is retelling her meeting with Hasan (the weapons dealer in Egypt for SD-6) to Vaughn, Hasan presents a new gun model, saying that he named it after his son 'Beni'. This makes his name Beni Hasan, which is also an Ancient Egyptian cemetery site. See more »

Goofs

When posing as a waitress in the Russian hotel, Syd's wig changes from covering her whole ears (which should be right, as she's wearing earplugs), to half-covering to not covering at all, from scene to scene. See more »

Quotes

Agent Eric Weiss: Impressive.
Vaughn: Yeah.
Agent Eric Weiss: Balls of steal. That's what I'm going to call you from now on. Hey, have you met Balls of Steel?

More thrills from J.J. Abrams
1 September 2007 | by (England) – See all my reviews

J.J. Abrams and director Ken Olin deliver a strong episode set a week later than the first, with the action based in the US and Moscow. This is real escapist fun and every penny of the high budget shines on screen.

The cast of "Alias" is excellent and a pleasure to watch. Garner is a great lead, ably supported by the good and bad guys.

It has to be said, Kevin Weisman is superb as SD-6's equivalent of "Q", the highly amusing and super-intelligent Marshall Flinkman. Flinkman is a genuinely likable character, a good guy in the murky world of SD-6.

The soundtrack contains tracks from Roland Gift and the one-and-only Kate Bush.

9 out of 10.
