Quotes

Marcus Dixon: How am I supposed to know what you believe when you've been lying to me? I'm your partner!
Sydney: Just think about this for a minute. Just think about everything we've been through. Just think about who I am. Now, what I am going to ask you to do is just accept the fact that I cannot tell you what this is about. What I am doing is classified but Dixon... I swear to you that I am not betraying this country. I could never do that. You know that!
Marcus Dixon: I don't need rhetoric, Sydney. Right now, I need a reason ...

very interesting but
19 February 2013 | by mkent-717-833598See all my reviews

This was a very interesting and exciting episode to watch, but like many aspects of the show has some problems with credulity. Syndey runs into this huge room and stops with a look of astonishment and fear. The camera show a huge red ball which we know from the flashbacks to the earlier episode when she destroyed the Mueller Device (prototype?) is filled with water. Now from the camera angle it appears huge, but from the panning around the room as Sydney escapes the bad guys, we come to see doesn't fill a tenth of the room. Yet Sydney (idiotically!!) says, I'm going to have to swim out of here. Within that room the water might come to her knees (certainly no more than the waist). Yet miraculously the water is sufficient to not only flood that whole room but all the hallways she runs down and submerge Vaughn so that we are led to wonder whether he survives or drowns. Sorry, but that is ridiculous. There might be an inch or two reach that door, but it is physically impossible for it to drown him.
