"Alias" does "Lost"
10 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

"Alias" has always had a lot in common with "Lost" (obviously J.J. Abrams' involvement to begin with, but also the complexity of the plot, the unbreakable habit of providing 10 new questions for every answer, the cliffhangers at the end of most episodes, etc.), but this is the first episode that actually follows the typical "Lost" format , by giving us extensive flashbacks on a specific character mixed with "present" action. "The Orphan" is a Nadia-centric: we get our first glimpses of her life from the orphanage to street crime to prison to being enlisted as an agent for the Argentinian government to her training to her first mission to betrayal and more. Her boss turns out to be the Argentinian version of Sloane, but she deals with him in a much more drastic way! Back in the present, she is assigned to retrieve a stolen "amplifying glass", which can massively increase the power of a laser beam, from another familiar figure in her past. Mía Maestro gives a tour-de-force, chameleonic performance, and Gisselle Castellanos is perfectly chosen as "Young Nadia". The episode's cliffhanger feels strangely "off", though. *** out of 4.
