Quotes

C.I.A. Agent Virginia Kerr: We had no idea that the sixteen Next Generation weapons would turn out to be children.
Sydney Bristow: They were being trained as sleeper agents?
C.I.A. Agent Virginia Kerr: That appears to be the case. See, the best spies have certain traits: proficiency with numbers, three dimensional thinking, creative problem solving. These abilities are all in evidence as early as five years old.

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.
