Did You Know?


Jack tells Sydney he's giving her an H&K P11 5-shot underwater dart pistol, but the weapon he holds up is a normal semi-automatic pistol with a suppressor attached to the barrel, looking nothing like a real P11. See more »


Lab Technician: You need blood from the patient. In this case, Vaughn. The equipment that manufactures the serum reads the blood and creates a custom genetic-specific antidote for that particular patient.
Sydney Bristow: I'll need to take some of Vaughn's blood with me.
Lab Technician: Yes.

Finding the cure
23 March 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After last week's bombshell that Vaughn was infected it is up to Sydney to get the cure. Normally when she has a mission she gets cornered by the bad guys then beats up most of them before making an impressive escape; not this time however. Sark has her trapped and if she wants to save her life and that of Vaughn she must undertake a mission for him... a mission to kill Arvin Sloane! Meanwhile Will is continuing to investigate to see if tested in the school United States could have been used to identify potential agents; it looks as if there is nothing to find until he learns that one of the questions concerns events that hadn't happened at the time meaning somebody had switched the records.

This was a decent episode; it was nice to see one of Sydney's missions go wrong in a way she couldn't escape from for once; it makes her more human when we know she can get caught. This also provided the means whereby David Anders would return as Sark, it looks as if he will become a more regular character now; I don't know if that was always the plan or it just happened because writers liked how the character turned out; either way I'm pleased as he is a great character. On the downside this episode did feature one of Sydney's least believable disguises; I do not think she could pass as Japanese even under the heavy make up; certainly not well enough to fool a Japanese person or Sloane!
