Vaughn returns... in a way
4 February 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode begins the way many other Alias episodes do; with Sydney in a difficult situation before jumping back a couple of days to show how she got there. This time she has been captured and is being questioned using some sort of hypnotic technique that makes her believe she is back with Vaughn. When we flash back we see Payton accessing a CIA facility to steal all the files on dead agents... creating a couple more in the process. Prophet Five are looking for something called 'The Horizon' and hoped to find its location is Vaughn's file; they don't find it but do discover that he told Sydney. It is at this point that they kidnap her and begin trying to find out what she knows. In the hypnotic state she talks to Vaughn about it even though she is vaguely aware that her experiences aren't real. When Sydney is kidnapped her father and Renée interrogate one of the kidnappers who Renée captures but he won't talk and the only clue leads them to a rather sinister room in Hungary!

This was an enjoyable episode with the right mix of action, intrigue and surprises. It was good to see Michael Vartan return as Vaughn even though he wasn't real his presence has been missed this series. Once again Amy Acker was fun to watch as Peyton; I love how her character acts believable sweet and innocent right up until the point she does something horrible! The best surprises, which I won't spoil, are learning who is behind Sydney's capture and where she is being held; the ending is certainly a cliffhanger!
