Jack is a stone-cold killer
7 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When Sydney meets a man in Paris to acquire a computer chip; the meeting goes badly when the man is shot, Sydney gets the chip however when the assailant kills himself rather than being taken alive as his employer, Sasha Korjev, would harm his family otherwise. Back at APO they learn that the chip is part of a new weapon which can target a person based on their biometric data. Sydney is tasked with going to Austria, where the weapon is being developed, things get a little complicated when she takes a pass card off an innocent worker and after using it his employers assume he is her accomplice. She feels obliged to extract him and he ends up with her for the rest of the mission. Jack meanwhile decides to go after Sasha Korjev and when he catches up with him he deals with him in the way you'd expect from Jack. The third plot involved Vaughn investigating a lead about his father which suggested that he has not a man to be trusted.

I rather enjoyed this episode even if the Vaughn sub-plot was one too many. As always Victor Garber was great as Jack; hardly breaking a sweat as he garrotted a man who had just proudly announced he was to become a father, he may be one of the good guys but he is also a stone-cold killer. The main story was fun even if the weapon was rather silly; the guns on the model helicopter must have been firing the smallest calibre of bullet imaginable; still in a show like Alias on has to suspend ones disbelief on a regular basis.
