Goofs

When in Vienna the shot establishing the scene does not show Vienna, but Prague. Also, some yellow, four-sided traffic-lights are shown. Traffic lights in Vienna are painted black or dark Grey, but never yellow. Interestingly, the license plates on the cars driven by the terrorists and the victim are authentic (the Viennese coat of arms might be mistaken for a Swiss flag, but is in fact represented correctly).

Quotes

Michael Vaughn: I saw de Souza. He told me that you hired him to rig those explosives.
Jack Bristow: Irina Derevko would eagerly destroy all of our lives.
Michael Vaughn: I'm not a big fan, either. It still doesn't justify what you did.
Jack Bristow: You do good work, Agent Vaughn. But your consistent shortcoming - you should know this - is your naive sense of morality. Evil must be eliminated by whatever means necessary.

Project Christmas
21 October 2009 | by See all my reviews

Sydney's latest mission takes her to Budapest, where she discovers that a criminal organization named The Triad is training young children in espionage, resets their memories, sends them back to their homes and plans to contact them later to make them full-blown spies. Meanwhile, Vaughn figures out what Jack did to frame Irina, and the presence in Sloane's life of an unknown person who seems to know what he did with Emily becomes more and more disturbing. Nothing great in action terms (apart from a very intense public execution sequence at the start), but this is one of the most revealing episodes so far, clearing up a very intriguing mystery set up by an Irina line to Jack in a previous episode: "You still haven't told her what you did to her after I disappeared, have you?". These revelations put the whole series in a different context. The Jack-Vaughn scenes are particularly well played and written in this episode. *** out of 4.
