Did You Know?


When Sydney gets caught during the attack on SD-6, Michael Vaughn makes a call with his cell to the CIA. But earlier Sydney and Jack had no network coverage since there was an active scrambler. See more »


Michael Vaughn: Yeah. Last week, when you talked about quitting SD-6
Sydney Bristow: I was being naive.
Michael Vaughn: No, but, um, what you said about wanting to go to a hockey game... wanting me to be part of your life... I, uh, I think I wasn't clear about something.
Michael Vaughn: That it would be nice to be in public with you, to actually get to look at you. Grab a pizza or go to a hockey game. I-I just... I wasn't clear that I would really like that, too.

A transitional episode
5 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

There's a new player in the game; he is known as The Man. He ordered the attack on the SD-6 headquarters, and at the same time another one of his commando teams was attacking the front building of an enemy spy organization, FTL, killing their boss and stealing another Rambaldi artifact. Now The Man has contacted K-Directorate and has asked for a meeting. Wanting to know more about that meeting, SD-6 sends Sydney and Dixon to Las Vegas to plant a bug on the K-Directorate middleman who will arrange it. To approach him, Dixon has to pose as a Jamaican (!) V.I.P and face him in a game of poker. Good production values (the Las Vegas casino is especially lavish), a potentially great new addition to the supporting cast (David Anders as The Man's representative - and executioner), but a little too much Francie and Charlie, whose story is so far the least interesting one on the show, although this episode does try to make them a part of Sydney's mission by bringing them to Vegas as well. *** out of 4.
