Jack ALWAYS has a plan

Author: gridoon2016

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The APO's new mission is to retrieve or destroy Valta, a super-computer that was stolen from the NSA by a British criminal called Martin Bishop, who plans to sell it to a new German terrorist organization. Meanwhile, Jack, under threat of having his involvement in Irina's death exposed, is assigned to do the psych evaluation tests on Nadia - will he grab the opportunity to get out of his tight spot? Of course he will. "The Awful Truth" is an episode primarily for Jack Bristow fans (even the title is quoted from him): he proves yet again that he is always ahead of most others in the game, and at the end he even looks (justifiably) smug and pleased with himself about it. Oh, and Mia Maestro continues to rock. The main part of the story, the Sydney-Bishop situation, is suspenseful enough and ends with a good car stunt sequence, but the problem is, we don't really care about Valta. Bring back the Rambaldi devices! *** out of 4.

Jack is as devious as ever!

Author: Tweekums from United Kingdom
30 August 2010

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

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.
