They say that disappointment is a part of life
20 November 2016 | by (Belgrade, Serbia) – See all my reviews

This is probably my shortest review of Alias ever. Now, it wasn't such a bad episode, but it doesn't quite live up to the promise of its precedent. It's different in some ways and, surprisingly, that makes it weak. In my opinion, considering all the subjects that it covered, it was really poorly done. In the center of the plot of this hour were only two characters, separated from one another with an exception of few brief moments.

Sloane's storyline pulled this episode from the mud. His talks with Poole and his determination to accomplish his goals were a real spot on, especially that last encounter of theirs. This episode established him as an antagonist he really is, the true villain of the story. I mean, yes, the new guy "Khasinau" should be feared with all of his connections and resources, but Sloane is the real reason this show exist in the first place. The Alliance was nice to see, even though they couldn't possibly find more stereotypical actors to play the role.

Sydney's part was really bad. And DSR is an old story, I can't believe American Government (fictional one) is actually spending money on something so banal as them. I am pretty sure that not even a president can pull an agent of a secret-spy-double-mission. My knowledge of politics aside, putting Sydney in the middle of their jobs was a really lousy move, considering that (obviously) they know more than she does. Syd's and Vaughn's mission to Vatican was a failure. It's hilarious how easily they managed to break into its secret archives with only a nun on their way. I mean, does Abrams actually know what Vatican really is? With its art collections and all documents in it, I wouldn't be surprised if it had a better security system than military bases. Oh and, congratulations to Joey Slotnick, I hate his character more and more with its every appearance.

If you hate the Rambaldi and his storyline, you might wanna skip this one. Nothing really important to the plot happened here (nothing that won't be repeated several times over in episodes and seasons to come). To sum all up, it's an amusing episode, but not worth spending time on it.
