The Wink

Did anyone catch it? The wink. Dixon winked at Weiss, right before he departed the CIA for the White House. It was instantaneous. The wink of foreshadow.

There has been some speculation that Weiss is, in fact, not being promoted, that his new placement in Washington is a cover for more covert operations. And that these operations are in assistance to his best friend and presumed dead buddy, Michael Vaughn. It has been said (by spoiler-diva Kristin at E!) that Dixon and Jack are working on some kind of scheme that would tear Sydney apart. Does the wink imply that Weiss might also be in on it? Does that mean Sydney is in the dark in regards to the vitality of her fiancé? And if Jack, Dixon and Weiss are working together on something, how will this scheme tear Sydney apart?

This is huge, is it not? Thoughts? Ideas?

As a spoiler, I had heard that Dixon was going to end up being one of the "bad guys", although we have heard this in the past. After the end of last week's episode I had a thought that has plagued me all weekend. Something struck me as odd, and please someone tell me if you also think this is strange. When the DSR facility was broken into and the box with the body was stolen, Dixon informed Wiess and Syd that he didn;t have any onformation other than that two agents had been injured. When is the last time that something like this has happened and agents were only injured and not killed? It was at that exact moment that I wondewred if Diixon was somehow in on the break-in, and that's why the guards were injured, he wouldn't have the heart to kill an innocent person, even if he has gone over to the dark side. Perhaps Wiess is in on this also and his move to Washington is a wasy to get closer to more intel. I did notice the look between Dixon and Wiess and hoped it wasn't just a "miss ya, have a good life" kind of look.

I wanted to add that I don't think Jack and Dixon and Weiss have a plan to tear Sydney apart, I don't think it's intentional. They obviously know something Sydney doesn't and whatever that is, whatever they are keeping secret might tear her apart. Maybe that Irina is behind P5 or that Vaughn is still alive and maybe isn't who we think. It could a number of things.

Well if Dixon was involved w/ the body box being stolen, that means he would be in league w/ Renee, who we still are undecided on in terms of her loyalties. It reminds me a little of the episode in s4 where they were trying to find the decryption key for that blackmail index (can't remember the exact name). Sloane told everyone that he had no suspects as to who stole it, but in reality he did know. This made him look like he was doing something bad again, but it really was just a setup to catch the old Alliance members.

Nice SRG- Good tie together. Have you considered writing a few pieces for the blog? I would love it!

thanks girlscout! I actually sent you an email about that. :)

Did you know Rachels code name will be Mockingbird?

So srg-alias, do you think that Sloane perhaps knew that Dixon could possibly have been involved in the theft of the blackmail index? (the name is escaping my memory as well). Dixon is involved with Director Chase, I'm sure he could score some interesting pillow talk information from her! Believe me, I do not want Dixon to have gone to the other side, I have just been trying to look at all theories.

Well, I wasn't implying that Dixon was involved w/ the blackmail index event, I was just relating the similarity of Sloane not telling everyone everything he knew because he had something going on that was semi-rogue in the background to Dixon not giving out much info. about the body box being stolen, that maybe he also is involved with that somehow...

I am skeptical. I can't help it. The wink seemed to be saying, "I know. I realize you feel you are being unceremoniously brushed asside, but there is urgent business for us to attend while you are leaving. Good luck, and we will see each other again."
This, to me, was a convenient way for the writers to sweep old characters away to make room for new ones. It might have been well done if it hadn't come right up against the show "losing" Nadia and Vaughn. Things are just changing too quickly and storylines we might love to explore are disappearing in the shadow of a new plot and new agenda.
I am not dis-ing the new characters, the new plots, or new show twists. I am only saying that we may be trying too hard to hold on to the romance we had with previous story lines by reading too much into a wink. Frankly, I'd rather be wrong about that and see it turn out just the way you are seeing it.
-R.

c'est possible robetron (it's SReneeG from the ABC boards) :) It's probably very likely that we are looking too far into things that end up being perfectly innocent, the wink could be one of them, we'll just have to wait and see!

I slow-mo'd that scene today and Dixon didn't wink. Both eyes closed in a blink, it's just that one eye didn't quite close all the way.
