Sydney Bristow: n the cell, when Russek was trying to get me to talk, I asked him questions about his interrogation. When he told me that they threatened to kill him, he was blinking at erratic intervals - a classic indication that he was lying. So, I didn't talk only because I knew he wasn't in any real danger. Either Sloane still thinks I'm the mole and is using me somehow...

Russek gets sacrificed
2 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After being captured by SD-6 things aren't looking good for Sydney but Jack has a plan; he will make it look as though Russek, her partner on her previous mission, was the one responsible for the transmission Mitchell detected... of course this does mean that he will be tortured to death. Freed from suspicion Sydney is sent to a luxury resort in Kenya to gain information about arms dealer Ineni Hassan. She discovers that he has had plastic surgery but tells SD-6 that she couldn't find out anything; it turns out that they have already discovered his whereabouts and have dispatched Jack to Cuba to kill him. Away from Sydney's missions Will has been given a tape recording of Eloise Kurtz murder and after it has been cleaned up he hears a voice asking "Did you tell him about SD-6?" Will has no idea what SD-6 is but his only clue leads him to a jailed man who would clearly prefer to rot in prison than talk about SD-6.

This episode was fairly dark at times; it showed that Jack was quite willing to let somebody be tortured to death to save his daughter; although we later learn that Russek was fully aware of what SD-6 was... presumably having Jack kill an innocent would have been a step too far! Sydney's mission was fairly routine although it did give Jenifer Garner a chance to show off her assets in a bikini and have a fight while not wearing much more! Will's subplot continues to intrigue; it can only be a matter of time before SD-6 decides he is digging too deeply. Once again there is a cracking cliff hanger at the end that leads me to look forward to the next episode.
