Bits 'n' Pieces

I am currently re-watching season 2 (yes, I know, I really should stop). In episode 2.2 "Trust Me," Irina Derevko turns herself into the CIA and Kendall pressures Vaughn to convince Sydney to talk to her. Vaughn explains to Kendall what affect this might have on Sydney, speaking with a woman she thought was dead, a woman who betrayed her, her father and their country. Vaughn looks to the TV monitor where Irina is pacing in her cell. Vaughn then says, “When she was done with my father, they could only identify him by his dental records.”

Vaughn learns later, in season 3, that dental records are not exactly solid proof of death in the world of Alias. Sydney is presumed dead, only after her dental records are matched with the remains found in her apartment after the fire. Sydney is, in fact, alive and has been the last 2 years. Could Vaughn’s line be another clue has to who is in a box? Could it be a clue years ahead of its time about his father and his father’s connection to Irina?

So... hmm... A clue that perhaps Irina really didn't kill Vaughn's father? This tells me that they simply have to bring Irina back to fill in the blanks for us. (PS girlscout: Not only am I cathing up on reruns of S4 on TNT, I'm also rewatching S2 on DVD. :) )

I think it has been confirmed that Lena Olin will return this season. I can't wait. She is such a great character and really pushes Sydney's character.

Oh, it's Slingshot!! Welcome to Let's Talk Alias. I am looking forward to your comments as the season progresses. I think SpyMom is a member too! HAHAHA!

YES, I actually remember that catching my attention the last time I was watching season 2 as well (which was like 3 weeks ago :)) If Irena knows about prophet 5, which she seemed to when she confronted Vaughn about it last season, and obviously didn't disapprove of his involvement with it, then maybe she wasn't actually the enemy of Vaughn's father, maybe she helped fake his death so the evil people would stop chasing him...the same way Jack helped fake Vaughn's death? Thoughts?

Kiki said...

That could be true, but didn't Brill (Jack's friend who told Vaughn of his father's involvement with Irina) tell Vaughn that his father took Nadia from Irina and gave her to Elena to protect her. Isn't that why Irina killed Vaughn's father, because he took her daughter away? I wonder how this will all fit.

Excellent point, srg-alias! Good observation.

srg-alias said...

yeah the whole Nadia issue confuses things a bit...will be really interesting to see how it all plays out!

I cannot remember, but did we ever learn just how Renee's father died? We know that all of the other people asked to decode P5 died of heart attacks, strokes, accidents, etc. But did they ever mention about Renee's dad?

srg-alias said...

no, we don't know anything about what happened to Renee's dad, only that he was working w/ Vaughn's dad...
