Good but rather unmemorable episode
24 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

Two CIA assets are kidnapped in Germany by the terrorist group "The Covenant"; they kill one and agree to release the other in exchange for Sark, who is still being held prisoner by the CIA. Dixon authorizes the exchange but the operation goes wrong due to the ill-conceived change of plans by NSC director Lindsey. Meanwhile, Jack tries to find out more about the Russian diplomat that Sydney appears to have killed in cold blood some time during her two missing years by contacting Irina Derevko, and Vaughn comes back to work for the CIA. This second episode of the third season has some good little moments: the Sydney-Sark scenes (David Anders probably does the best acting on the show here; Sark is bemused by the absurdity of what goes on around him), Jack's "Miss you too" to Irina (glad she's still alive, though with Lena Olin removed from the main cast we probably won't be seeing much of her, at least in the near future), Sydney's face-off with Lindsey in the men's bathroom. But when you try to think of truly memorable, defining moments (like, to use a recent example, Syd calmly blowing up a car full of bad guys in "The Two"), this episode comes up short. *** out of 4.
