Truth Be Told

Okay Alias, we have come to terms with your departure. We have always known Sydney Bristow would one day settle down, we were just hoping it was another 20 years from now. Alas, we are grateful for the 5 fabulous years you’ve given us. Now, we want the truth. We want it all laid out there. We look forward to a BANG of an ending and we are hoping that this ending includes the answers to so many questions, questions that can demolish as many mysteries as possible. Here is a starter list of some of the questions that need to be answered before the series is laid to rest:

-Who is behind P5?
-What really happened to Vaughn’s father? Did Irina really kill him?
- Is Nadia really Sloane’s? Jack’s?
- Who is Rambaldi? What is his endgame?
- Is Vaughn alive?
- What is S.A.B. 47?
- What is the significance of the number 47?


Any others? Let’s get a nice list going! Alias has 15 episodes to go! 15 episodes to cram as much satisfying information into as possible. I will compile a list of all of your ideas for unanswered questions and update the list everyday.

OK! So many questions, where to start?!? Here are some, rather smaller ones, but still have been nagging me:
- What happened to McKennas Cole and how did he get out of CIA custody in the first place?
- What happened to Olivia Reed?
- IS SYD THE CHOSEN ONE OR NOT? If she is, then why was she able to see Mt. Sebatio (sp?)
More to come I'm sure, that's all I could think of now. :)

Part of me is wondering how this will all play out and how long the writers have known the series was ending.

Like I assume they already knew how this season would play out and then found out it was going to be cancelled... does that mean they have to rush to answer questions? and rush for an easy answer?

I hope they don't disappoint!

srg-alias said...

very good point dignan, I hope for the same...

Kiki said...

Good point Dignan. JJ has said he's always known how the end would be, so I am guessing they might be speeding it up, or he decided to end in a different way. I hope JJ comes back to the fold to end the season. I know he has been finishing up Mission Impossible 3, but I hope he can contribute for the end of the series.

Wow - I didn't hear about this announcement until just today! I am not overly surprised that Alias is ending this year, sad, yes, surprised, no.

There are so many questions left unanswered. I'm not sure if they will be able to answer them all, but I hope they do go back to some of the Rambaldi mysteries. How was Sydney's life destined to be part of this Rambaldi tangle? Was she chosen, or was it all the doing of her spy parents?

I'll have more as I think about it, but that is the main thing burning in my brain right now... I'm SO glad for DVD releases of TV shows now that this one is coming to an end...

Kiki said...

Thank the tech gods for DVD! I love it! And I hope season 5 has tons of extras!

Here's a question, is Allison Doran/Francie really dead? We never really "saw" her die did we? And I would still love to know what part Irina is playing in this P5, and where is Katya?

srg-alias said...

yes I wondered about Allison too...I mean we all figured she died after Will stabbed her but we never knew for sure...hmmmm

Here are some questions that I'd like answered:

1. What have Jack & Sloan been up to?
2. What was the item on Thomas Grace's resume that raised Jack's eyebrows?
3. Who's the kid in the photo (Syd & Nadia's cousin?)

jenn256 said...

yes, I rewatched the episode recently where Nadia found the photo of the baby, Irina's "niece". But Jack said that after he saw Irina in the photo he asked Irina to marry him, then Syd was born. So either Nadia is older than Syd (which doesn't add up because Irina and Sloane were supposed to have hooked up after she married Jack), or that is some other baby.....SARK? Maybe she got together with Lazaray???? Can anyone help me with this, it has always made me wonder.

Kiki said...

Ohh M, I forgot about the kid in the photo. If it was truly Irina's niece, does that mean that Elena or Katya has a child? Hmm

Dignan said...

I have to say that you all have great memories. Some of the things mentioned I barely, if at all remember and I have been watching since day one.

Kudos to you all for helping my memory!

M said...

Also, remember when SD6 got brought down, and Sloan was like, "Phase 2 is complete" (or something like that, its been awhile!) He was working with Sark then... what was his whole "phase" thing... do you think that even if he wasn't captured, he would have started his "legit" company, and that was Phase 3? And since he poisoned the water, was he going to launch a Mueller device independent of Elena? And I want to know if he had actually had anything to do with the Sloan clone, even though he denied it. (I also feel that the Jacqueline story line could have been more complete.)

srg-alias said...

actually Sark said that "Phase One was complete", and there's supposedly and episode this season called "phase 2", so I'm thinking that will definitely tie in...

M said...

Thanks for the catch SRG - didn't know about that episode title - very exciting!

srg-alias said...

yeah I know! I'm not one for spoilers, I heard that episode title accidentally, but it made my wheels start turning with speculation about what "phase 2" could be, and how supposedly it's been going on since mid-season 2! It must involve Sark and Sloane somehow...

S.A.B 47 - i'm very interested to know about this but i don't think we will be hearing about it again. seems it was tied up with the finale of 3 (but with alias you never know, it definitely could come back) and that the writers went a different way by the time s4 got started. obviously it is Sydney Anne Bristow 47 and i think we were led to believe it had to do with jack's manipulation/study/experiment with syd's life - definitely room for it to come back but i am not holding my breath. though it could be the entire focus of the whole endgame! thats what we love about alias....
