Quotes

Marcus Dixon: [to Sydney] I want you to accompany the hostage rescue team.
Marshall Flinkman: Actually, I had an idea. Syd should go in as a biochem major. Harvard dropout, totally spoiled. Maybe she got kicked out because she was synthesizing ecstasy in her dorm room, or maybe crystal, crank...
Marcus Dixon: Fine

Sark's return
14 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This season continues to be exciting with a great opening, two CIA agents are in a lift which is sent plummeting when the winch house is blown up, after falling some distance it comes to a halt, but soon it is ascending again and when it gets to the top of the building it keeps going as we see it is swinging from a heavy lift helicopter.

These two agents are now prisoners of The Covenant who demand that the CIA retrieve a package from a sleazy Munich cinema. When Sydney gets there and opens the package she finds the head of one of the kidnapped agents. The Covenant contacts the CIA again and says they are willing to exchange the remaining agent for Sark. The NSA think they want to kill him so claim to happy for the exchange to take place. As the swap is taking place however it becomes clear that the exchange in not going to take place when Delta Force turns up to stop the procedures. Things don't go according to plan and the Covenant end up with both Sark and the CIA agent. It turned out that they didn't want Sark dead after all but access to funds he no idea he had till they told him.

Away from the episode's main plot Jack goes to see Sloane to try to find out what happened to Sydney in her missing two years and Sydney goes to see Vaughn to let him know she would have no problem with him coming back to work with her at the CIA.

As one would expect from Alias there is plenty of action and a plot which is is convoluted without seeming as though it is just being convoluted for the sake of it.
