Meanwhile, Jack travels to Madagascar to visit with an old friend, the arms dealer Sasha Korjev whom is the mastermind behind the assassin helicopter. Back in Los Angeles, Vaughn uncovers more disturbing secrets about his father of finding a diary with notes written years after his alleged "murder," which straightens his quest to know if his father is really alive.

Nothing special this time
9 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Ignoring the (excellent) previous episode's cliffhanger(s), "The Road Home" gives Sydney yet another standalone mission: to recover a weapon that can select its targets biometrically. Meanwhile, Jack goes after the man who is now in possession of the weapon, an old friend, or enemy, or both. And Vaughn continues his quest to discover the truth about his father. As you can see, the narrative is split into three parts, and only one of them really tells us something we didn't already know: in addition to possibly being alive and for some reason now trying to contact his son for the first time after 25 years, Vaughn's father might also have been a really bad man who would shoot his special forces comrades in the back. Apart from that particular bit of information, we see Sydney being tough but compassionate (when an innocent civilian is mistaken for her CIA partner by the bad guys, she goes out of her way to rescue him), and Jack being morally shady: nothing new here. And that supposedly super-advanced next-generation weapon is not really so advanced, if you can fool it as simply as Sydney does. *** out of 4.
