Storyline

Having woken up in Hong Kong, with no memory for the last two years (!), Sydney returns to Los Angeles to try to piece together the last two years of her life and discovers the fates of her friends and family: Vaughn has married thinking that Sydney was long dead; Marshall is having a baby with CIA tech expert Carrie Bowman; and Dixon is now the new division head of the L.A. office branch of the CIA. Sydney also learns the shocking fates of Jack and Sloane; the former is in CIA custody for communicating with Irina whom still is in hiding, while the latter is living in Switzerland under house arrest in exchange for co-operation with the CIA. Sydney is granted temporary CIA clearance on a case that may help her regain her memory and she meets a new enemy group called The Covenant. Written by Anonymous

Trivia

With the second season, David Anders was moved to a season regular. This meant that the character of Sark was essentially required to appear in virtually every episode, something that J.J. Abrams wasn't entirely in favor of. In fact, Abrams instigated that Anders be relegated back to a recurring role in Season 4. See more »

Quotes

Bernard: Forgive me if I look shocking to you, but I was believing that you were dead.
Sydney: I was. But now I'm not.
Bernard: This is why I love our business.

rare glimpse into the mind of a TV pioneer
27 September 2015 | by A_Different_DrummerSee all my reviews

This review written in late 2015 some 12 years after airing. JJ Abrams at this date has become a legend in Hollywood, with multiple series under his belt. When members of the far future read this, for all I know, by that time, he may also have cured cancer and become president.

The point is this -- Alias was the platform that launched him, and off the top of Season 3 even die-hard fans are reaching for that nameless paper bag the stewardess left in the seat pocket ahead, as the plot spins so far and so fast that the vertigo is literally impossible for viewers to escape.

Indeed this will prove to be a pattern Abrams will repeat again and again in years to come -- when the plot becomes restrictive, when fans start to lose interest, take the story apart and put it back together in unexpected ways.

Frankly (I am watching in sequence and chronologically) I like the energy of Season 3 and I like the tougher dialog that Garner is getting.

A rare peek into the mind of a genius.
