Quotes

Arvin Sloane: [Voiceover the last shots of the episode. Jack finds out that Sloane killed Nadia, and Sydney finds Renee dead] A few days I was absolutely horrified that you would suggest that I turn against APO that I would kill my own daughter.

And I have been preparing for this my whole life, I knew it was coming. I have betrayed everyone I ever loved, but I was chosen.

Shocking! Positively shocking!
15 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

Sloane gives Nadia the cure he got from Prophet Five (which involves stopping her heart for 30 seconds, then reviving her). She wakes up from her coma and everything seems to be alright, but Jack is suspicious and begins investigating Sloane's recent activities. Meanwhile, the APO team is tracking Anna Espinosa to her meeting with a man who has been hired by Prophet Five to decode the hidden message of Page 47....the problem is, the page they have is a very well done fake

  • and guess who has the authentic one! For pure shock value, few


"Alias" episodes can surpass "30 Seconds". Two cast members get (rather graphically) killed, and Sloane takes a major dark turn in his journey. The episode is chillingly well-done, but at the same time disappointing, because the lovely & sweet Mia Maestro finally returns to the series with a speaking role only to....and Sloane's turn just about throws nearly three seasons' worth of redemption into the dumpster. I still like the series on a technical level, but I have reservations about some of the latest plot developments. *** out of 4.
