Sydney is captured by Sloane's men and prepared for torture. Thinking and acting quickly, her father Jack finds a way to save her: he fixes the second, unauthorized transmission that SD-6 picked up from Geneva to make it appear as if the person responsible for it was Sydney's partner in that mission, Russek. Sloane falls into the trap, and believing Russek to be a double agent, he has him assassinated. Sydney is cleared (for the moment?), and gets her new mission: to discover the new identity of Ineni Hassan, a man who sells arms to terrorists, and whom SD-6 wants dead and the CIA wants alive so that he can give a list of his clients.

Well, it took them 10 episodes, but it's finally here, and not a moment too soon: Sydney in a bikini! Her fighting is getting even better as well; one think I like about "Alias"'s fight scenes is that there is no exaggerated posing or showing off - just quick, practical moves to get the opponent knocked out before he (or she) knows what hit him (or her). Besides all that, this is one of the darkest episodes so far: much like "Doppelganger", it explores the grey areas of espionage, as Jack sacrifices another man's life to save his daughter, even though, in his defense, that man was one of the SD-6 employees who knew exactly who they were working for and went along with it. *** out of 4.
