Storyline

In the aftermath of both Renee's and Nadia's murder, a vengeful Sydney becomes determined to find Sloan whom has abandoned his morals and joined Prophet Five in their search for Rimbaldi's great mystery. When a mysterious computer chip is found surgically implanted in Renee's body that has the name of Vaughn's real name on it, Sydney decides to travel to Nepal to contact Michael Vaughn, whom is alive and been in hiding all this time, only to have the Sydney double (Anna Espinosa) tracking her who gets to Vaughn first to know more about the chip. Meanwhile, visions of the dead Nadia plague Sloan as he tries to stall for time with Peyton over his deciphering of Page 47. Written by Anonymous

He was dead, but he got better
16 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

A microchip is discovered inside the dead body of Renée Rienne. Marshall tries to decode it, but half the data appears to be missing. However, the real name of Michael Vaughn - Andre Michaux - is etched on it. Sydney decides to take the chance and meet Vaughn, who is hiding and healing in Nepal, in person. But Prophet Five has been listening into the latest APO conversations, and sends Anna Espinosa - now looking exactly like Sydney Bristow - to get the chip. Meanwhile, Sloane has been tasked with deciphering the hidden message of Page 47, but keeps getting distracted by ghostly visits from his dead daughter Nadia. As I already indicated in a previous comment, I believe that the way this season handled the entire Vaughn situation was wrong: you want to kill him off to further motivate Sydney's quest for truth and justice, fine. But you can't just bring him back to life later and claim that "for several months he was hiding and healing and Jack & Sydney knew it but they kept it a secret to fool Prophet Five". We saw Vaughn die, we felt Sydney's grief, and frankly bringing him back at this point feels more like a move made by writers who prefer to please the fans at any cost, rather than stick to the story they originally wanted to tell. And as interesting as it is to see Jennifer Garner play the bad girl for a change, all this "double" stuff felt more fresh back in season 2, with evil Francie AKA Allison. The Sloane / Nadia parts of the episode work better IMO, and I like how even after his dark turn Sloane remains a three-dimensional character; he praises Sydney to Anna for her strength and sense of duty. Nadia's appearances could perhaps seem a bit silly on paper, but the way I see it she is not there as a ghost - more as a manifestation of Sloane's guilt, doubts, fears, but also plans for the future (which apparently involve one of my favorite recurring characters on the show). These last two episodes made me realize how much I missed Mia Maestro - the new characters of season 5 are okay, but Nadia has a strong personal connection to both Sloane and Sydney that the others cannot in any way match. *** out of 4.
