In the aftermath of the destruction of APO and death of Tom Grace, Sydney and Vaughn and the surviving members of APO try to stop Sloane from fulfilling the Rimbaldi endgame when Sloane takes over Prophet Five and acquires two Soviet nuclear missiles to use to bring on destruction to profit on reconstruction. When the team finally captures Peyton, she tells them about Sloane whom is now in Mongolia to find the tomb of Rimbaldi to learn his ultimate secret which is immortality and eternal life. Sydney, Vaughn and Jack arrives, but Jack is fatally wounded by Sark, who slips away, again. Sydney and Vaughn then race the clock to locate Irina Derevko who has been planning with Sloane all this time to bring on Armmagendon with the two stolen missiles. At the same time, Sydney reminisces about her childhood, and how she came to first work at SD-6 and her affiliation with Sloane which led her to the path she's on today. Written by Anonymous

Unbelievably Bad.
21 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

This was the worst piece of plot-driven, hack, dime store crap I have ever seen. Throughout Alias the writers mistakenly got themselves too deep into convoluted plots they didn't know how to get out of. It was the characters and the humor that kept it going. The biggest mistake for the finale was not exploiting the interesting aspects of the characters. They were too worried about solving the mystery. Quality fiction is character-driven, not plot driven.! On the surface, Alias is James Bond with boobs, but on another tier it is about a highly dysfunctional family who don't trust each other but in the end, they are all each other has. Garber and Olin did an amazing job playing up the sexual tension throughout the series, which I can't believe was never used in the conclusion. Even the art direction for the beach scene ending was bad. It should have evoked a feeling of calm and serenity. Instead it was cold - like the day after a nuclear war. It reminded me of an old twilight zone episode. I'm not going to comment on the missiles, because I still can't figure it out what that was supposed to be about. Was this the product of nepotism? Maybe some favors were called in at the end and the real writers already had moved onto their next job. Was the finale written by a sixteen year-old kid (maybe the son of one of the sponsors?) with a comic book fixation? Actually that is probably an insult to both comic books and sixteen year-olds. Sad and bad. I can't help but wonder if the poor finale will hurt their DVD sales.
