Having woken up in Hong Kong, with no memory for the last two years (!), Sydney returns to Los Angeles to try to piece together the last two years of her life and discovers the fates of her friends and family: Vaughn has married thinking that Sydney was long dead; Marshall is having a baby with CIA tech expert Carrie Bowman; and Dixon is now the new division head of the L.A. office branch of the CIA. Sydney also learns the shocking fates of Jack and Sloane; the former is in CIA custody for communicating with Irina whom still is in hiding, while the latter is living in Switzerland under house arrest in exchange for co-operation with the CIA. Sydney is granted temporary CIA clearance on a case that may help her regain her memory and she meets a new enemy group called The Covenant. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


There are over 15 names of "Alias" crew members from various departments listed on the "Agents Killed in Action" memorial plaque that Sidney and Jack view at 12:41. Most obvious is Scott Chambliss, production designer, whose name appears under Sydney's in a closeup. See more »


Sydney: They told me you were charged with resisting authority. Dad, I don't understand.
Agent Jack Bristow: I became obsessed with your death; with finding those responsible. And at a certain point in my pursuit, I needed help. So I contacted the one person I believed I could trust, given the circumstances... your mother.
Sydney: You were working with Mom?
Agent Jack Bristow: At the time, she was number 6 on the CIA's most wanted list. The National Security Council, primarily... Robert Lindsey. You met him?
Sydney: Yes.
Agent Jack Bristow: He discovered that I was ...

So much has changed since you've been gone
23 November 2009 | by See all my reviews

I think the way the series found to renew itself in this third season has a lot of potential: instead of just wondering about the mysteries of the future, now the viewer also has to consider the mysteries of the past (the two years that Sydney was missing, and presumed dead, and of which she has no recollection). Even the present proves to be a surreal experience for Sydney, as nearly everyone around has either disappeared or taken on a different role than she remembered: Jack is held prisoner by his own government, Sloane has made a deal with the CIA and is now their consultant, Dixon has been promoted to Kendall's job, Vaughn has gotten married and retired from the CIA, etc. Even Marshall, who is still his humorously awkward self, is about to become a father! "The Two" certainly packs a lot of stuff in its 41 minutes (and strains credibility on a couple of spots - would the CIA really allow Sydney to go back on the field so soon? Probably not), but what makes the strongest impression is the the angrier, more violent Sydney we see here: her reaction to Vaughn's information at the start is surprising, but it also makes sense; her way of dealing with the Russian hit-man and his gang shows that she is ready to play rough this season. And the final shot proves that the series hasn't forgotten the art of closing with a WTF cliffhanger. *** out of 4.
