Storyline

Sydney and Vaughn go undercover as an arms dealing married couple in a mock-up setting of American suburbia to find a stolen electro-magnetic pulse weapon that when detonated, could bring back the Dark Ages. However, the neighborhood they've infiltrated is not as charming as it seems for the other "happy couples" of this American suburbia setting in Russia could spell trouble for them and their cover.

"We will have to move up our timetable"
1 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

The Sloane line above is one of the few things in this episode that gave me hope for the future of "Alias". It seems that he and Jack have formed an alliance about something regarding Irina Derevko. Cool! I want to know what it is. The series itself needs to move up its timetable; the trivial-mission-of-the-week format is a dead end. In the early phases of season 1, we had Sydney trying to avoid being exposed as a double agent. In season 2, we had her conflicted relationship with her mother. In season 3, we had her effort to find out where she had been in the last 2 years, and how she could have killed a stranger in cold blood. And now we have her simply going on missions that are quickly forgotten, while Sloane is mostly around to give orders and congratulations, Nadia is underused, Sark is nowhere to be seen, Rambaldi is put aside, the Covenant is never mentioned, etc. To be honest, I feel that Sydney & Vaughn are getting too much screen time in the last few episodes; "Alias" has a great roster of characters and actors, and it should let them contribute more. I did appreciate the surreality of "Liberty Village" (evil hidden under the placid surface of suburban "American" life as it is acted out by a Russian extremist organization), but I still think the series is a bit stuck at the moment. Also, what's up with the shaky camera and the constant zoom-ins and -outs during the briefing sequence? "Alias" has ALWAYS had steady camera work in the dialogue scenes. Not surprisingly, director Kevin Hooks was a first-timer in the series. *** out of 4.
