Trivia

We get to see how Allison killed Francie. To further symbolize their fight between good and evil, Sydney was dressed in white and Allison in black. We can see a picture of Budapest instead of Zürich when Sydney goes to Switzerland to meet Sloane. In the background the towers of Europe's biggest synagogue can be seen. The scene was shot on the rooftop of the Astoria, a famous hotel in Budapest. In "Phase One", when Francie gets killed, the trail of blood from her head goes horizontally. In this episode, the trail of blood goes straight down. In the office that is supposed to be in London there is a lamp that clearly uses an American plug. It seems pretty odd that Sydney, with all her training as super agent, could have just walked towards the lift and looking at the body without even checking the surrounding to see if Alison was nearby to knock her unconscious from the back! That precaution would have been rule no. 1 in the CIA's book of "Things to Look out for". See more »

Goofs

The map that Lauren's contact brings up to show where the call to Lazaray originated shows a pointer in England. Claimed as pointing to London, the pointer is actually nowhere near London and looks like it's pointing nearer to Reading. See more »

Three women and their missions
21 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

In this episode we learn that Alison, the woman who killed and replaced Sydney's friend Francie in season two is alive and well and working for The Covenant. Understandably Sydney is somewhat disturbed by this news, she is equally disturbed to learn that she will be replacing Lauren as Sloane's handler.

Sydney and Alison find themselves on the same mission but working for opposing teams when they are both tasked with recovering a key that gives the holder full access to Russia's nuclear arsenal, inevitably they meeting leads to a fairly violent confrontation. Meanwhile Lauren is getting closer to learning who killed Lazerey, information from the Russians has given her a name but as of yet she doesn't know that name was an alias Sydney had used in her lost two years.

This was a good episode with plenty of action and some nice plot development. It was nice to see Alison return, I'm sure we will see a lot more of her in future.
