When a mission to Cuba goes wrong, Sydney is attacked and placed in serious danger of being buried alive in a sealed coffin. Back in Los Angeles, Dixon is exposed to a deadly pathogen released inside APO which is currently in lock down due to the toxin and Marshal (not being in the building at the time due to his home life problems), is the only one who can get to Sydney and save her. Only with com link help from Jack, Vaughn and the others at APO, the socially awkward and field inexperienced Marshal has to finish a very important mission on his own before it's too late.

Now You're Talking !

The return of the golden days of Alias again; that was my comment after this one came to an end. Actually (Tuesday) proves seriously that this show had the great talent of course and had lost it for a long time too ! Just compare this fine episode to another crappy ones, then you'll find that the crappy would be too many yet the good are too few and too masterly enjoyable as well; quite like this one.

Here, we have one strong plot which had been divided to 2 good parts (How Marshall will save Sydney from burying alive in Cuba) and (How Marshall and Sydney will make it together and steal a terrorist's secrets). Both of them were unbelievably outstanding especially at that time of Alias, to the extent that you'll say : wow.. Maybe all the rest weren't that bad after all (Yes it's THAT good !).

Look at the idea of paralyzing the APO's agency by bacterial virus while (Sydney) is in a coffin under the ground in Cuba as the clumsy (Marshall) is the only agent who can rescue her from inescapable suffocation…It's all genius writing and the ultimate result was as powerful as the script (particularly the entire sequence of Marshall in the cemetery). The second part was no less suspenseful when the foolish Marshall tried to imitate his ideal (Jack Bristow) !

There were some comic lines : (Now I've got hepatitis !) when a drunk girl kissed the scrupulous (Marshall) at the night club, (that means that you ripped the retina apart !) when (Jack) was sorry for (Marshall)'s failure at cutting off the dead terrorist's eye !, and for sure (Marshall)'s song to his baby about the nonmetallic elements !

The previous episode was all for (Nadia) and now they made one for (Marshall) who is a beloved character and the only un-brawny one in the team, so when we have the opportunity to watch him as successful as them in action it would be a victory for the poor un-brawny us !

It was all exceptional from the start till the great last scene of (Sydney) and (Vaughn) dancing romantically in the train station like it's a finale of a beautiful classic movie. Well, I kept telling myself while watching : this what made Alias a cult TV once, this had been made to watch not one time but several times, all the ones who may hate the show are the very unlucky ones who didn't ever watch that kind of episodes, and if only it was written like this all along !

Forget all about How the whole APO had no agents out of it to rescue (Sydney) ?!, or what was the need for Sydney's cell phone with whatever (Marshall) invented out of an old Cuban radio while in the same time he could have easily used the satellite's thermal power as he did eventually (but after some real hot thrilling time), or How all the terrorists in the world had their offices in night clubs ?!, or even How bad the dance of salsa at the start was !, or the old trite one about How (Sydney) could work under (Sloane)'s authority !!? Here all of those silly questions are not allowed to be asked, simply you won't even have the time to ask them, since you're in the joy zone, having the most interesting time.

It is based on the original perfect thrill of the first Alias, absolute fun.
