Jack is as devious as ever!
30 August 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When a powerful computer called Valta is stolen APO track it down to a man called Bishop living in Spain, unfortunately they don't know where it is being stored and his the server Bishop stores all his information on can not be hacked remotely. Rather than forcing their way in to his house they go for a more subtle approach, getting him to invite Sydney in. She secures the invite by staging a car crash where he will be in a position to rescue her. Of course she is in no real danger in the car; the fire and explosion are just another of Marshall's tricks. Once inside she waits for Bishop to pop out before retrieving the data, she manages to pass it on to Vaughn but Bishop returns before she can leave. While stuck inside talking to him things go wrong when Weiss leads a CIA raid against the site of the Valta. Bishop soon realises that Sydney isn't whom she claimed and it looks as though she is in real danger. Luckily Nadia and Jack turn up just in time although Sydney is a little shocked when Nadia empties her gun into him… it turns out Jack had told her that Bishop was the man who had killed her mother; even though he was the man responsible.

This was another good episode, it was fun seeing Jack back up to his devious old tricks again; Victor Garber really is great in the role. Mía Maestro is also doing well as Nadia; she is certainly a welcome addition to the cast. Now that Weiss knows that all his old friends are part of a black ops unit I hope that we will see more over him again.
