Sloane gets framed
17 July 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In the previous episode Sark was captured and after a rather speedy extradition he is on his way back to the United States... it looks like things are going well for the CIA, until Dixon's children are abducted and Sark's plane lands in the desert after an accomplice of his has killed everybody on board before parachuting out with Sark. It is obvious that somebody inside the CIA has helped him and Lauren has arranged for the finger to point firmly at Arvin Sloane knowing that Dixon will believe he is guilty even though he'd be more careful to cover his tracks. Things get even worse when they track the children to a building in Arizona only to find that it was a trap and the building is booby trapped. The Covenant has made a demand for the release of various prisoners but we soon learn they never expected this demand to be met it was just a distraction so that Dixon and Sydney could acquire a Rambaldi artefact from a CIA facility.

As one would expect from Alias this episode was packed with twists and turns as well as explosions and a dramatic infiltration. Carl Lumbly did a good job as Dixon, he showed real emotion when his character's children were abducted. The action scenes were well executed as always; the makers do a great job making the unbelievable believable.
