Goofs

When Sloane is injecting the cure for Nadia, the serum is visible in the syringe. There is a section of air between the liquid and the bottom of the pump mechanism. A few moments later, after he pushes Jack Bristow off of him, the syringe is filled with liquid all the way to the bottom of the pump mechanism. See more »

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. I realize now that both were inevitable. That death is a necessary sacrifice; necessary to complete the final leg of this journey. 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.
