Thursday is creeping up on us, and so is another episode of our guilty pleasure. And I say guilty pleasure because I probably spend more time analyzing, researching and writing for this blog than I do taking care of household chores (my laundry room and kitchen are slovenly).
As I re-watched 5.3 “The Shed,” I realized how much the feel of Alias has changed. The pilot and season 1 were geared toward finding the show’s feel, their nitch and I think this season feels similar. With the departure of characters, and the new crew on board, Alias is again, looking for its nitch. How will these new characters develop? How will they relate to the already established APO team? These are good questions, and when we all sit down to watch tomorrow night, let’s keep our eyes peeled for the answers.
Things To Think about for Thursday:
-What are the similarities between Rachel’s merge into APO and Sydney’s merge into double-agenthood back in season 1?
-What, if any, signs did you see in the development of Rachel and Tom’s relationship, either personal or professional?
-Any clues of devious-doing by Dixon, Jack or Sloane?
-How is Sydney taking to the newbies? How are they taking to her, a pregnant super-spy?
-Any clues on the who, what, where of P5?
Also, as I have said before, always be on the look out for references to past episodes or past plotlines (i.e. Rambaldi, SD-6, the Alliance, codenames, and villains, etc.)
I will be posting a brief overview of the episode tomorrow morning, as usual, and I have asked some guest writers to offer a few additions related to the episode. I am looking forward to what the next few episodes will bring. I believe we will be seeing some old familiar faces (Sark is back in episode 8, and it was confirmed today that Vartan has signed a contract and is back at the ABC lot as of yesterday, to film more episodes.)
Thanks to all for checking in and commenting!! Happy viewing!
