Mapping the Underworld



This is a map of P5 as I understand it. What do you think? (Sorry if it's hard to read).

They wanted the map; the map of SD-6. They grabbed Sydney off the street, strapped her to a chair and not only tortured with drugs and electric shock, but with the memory of her long lost love. So typical of the merciless terrorist organizations we have met on Alias.

Dr. Desantis informs Kelly Peyton that it is necessary for them to kidnap Sydney Bristow in order to recover information from her memory; information given to her by Vaughn. He tells Kelly that once they have Sydney in their possession, he will inform the benefactors. We can assume that these benefactors are the same benefactors that ordered the hit on Vaughn, financed Sloane’s release from prison and are now blackmailing Sloane with the cure for Nadia’s illness. We can also assume that these benefactors are the associates that Irina speaks of, before she orders Peyton to make Sydney comfortable.

I would hardly call what Sydney retrieved from her memory a name. It was the location of Horizon. X-23 Norte, as we know is the incorrect name Sydney gave to P5 to buy APO time to research and gain intelligence on P5’s agenda. What is the name P5 is looking for? How is it connected to SD-6 and the Alliance?

I am in suspicion that there is a mole inside APO. How did Prophet 5 know that Sydney would be meeting with Renee in order to kidnap her? I had a thought. It was brought to light that Thomas Grace was previously married. My first thought was Lauren Reed, in a weird twist of thinking, but now, perhaps I suspect Kelly Peyton. Follow me- Perhaps Grace was or is married to Kelly Peyton. Perhaps he is the mole, relaying information to Prophet 5. Thomas and Kelly come face to face in episode 5.03 “The Shed.” Rachel and Peyton are out on the street; Thomas makes a brush pass by lighting Peyton’s cigarette. Perhaps the plan has been to infiltrate APO and gain access to information, such as Vaughn’s files, to help them retrieve Horizon. Perhaps Kelly intended to get rid of Dean in order to take control of The Shed herself. Just an idea. I would love to believe Thomas is a good guy, but there is something about him that strikes me as odd. (Okay, now that I have typed it out and read it back, it seems highly unlikely!! Gosh, ideas come and go).

PS. So nice to see the blog was in full swing while I was away this last weekend. Thank you for all the birthday wishes; I had a great one! Reminder: January 2nd, Bloggy Appreciation Day. Submit your article today!!

Interesting that all of the other people on your map with a DIRECT LINK TO P5,(ie. Curtis,Dean and DeSantis)are dead except for Irina!

As far as Grace maybe being married to Peyton, I'm not sure. It's not very smart to marry a fellow spy and then expect to work for the CIA. It's to easy to trace his past. You would think if they were going to becomedouble agents Grace would have found a way to get rid of all info about his marriage to Peyton before working for APO. I;m not sure,have to think about it more. But it definatley has to do with something or they wouldn't have brought it up.

Great map! Just want to let you know that I think it was 5.3 "The Shed" that Grace lights Peyton's cigarette. Just FYI!

Oh, you're right. My bad.

I had a couple of thoughts about Irina and the whole P5 thing. Glad you brought it up.

Thought 1: Even though Irina is Syd's mom and we have seen her affection for Syd in the past, it appears that the P5 gents and ladies don't have any feelings of concern about Irina betraying them because the other associates are no where to be found on the barge/ship with Irina...hence her helicopter ride to fill them in on the information [unknowingly false info] they extracted from Syd. What do you all think? Does the P5 crowd have trust in Irina? Or do you think they are just using Irina as best they can?

Thought 2: I don't think that Irina is so far up on the evil P5 food chain. Yes, Irina seems to always be in charge. But think with me for a sec. Sark was a benefactor for the Covenant and wans't in charge. He was just a pawn to do their North America bidding. From this interaction and checker game stance, I assume the same with Irina. Why? She's the one behind the glass. She's is doing the work for the unknown crowd of P5 [not literally because she isn't really conducting the experiment herself, but she is in control of it]. She appears to be in the same position as Sark. What's your intake? Is she a Leader or a Follower? And if she is in the same position as Sark, what is her contribution? Is it money? Is it Sydney? Or is it something completely different?

Rudy!! Blogger of the Day!! Awesome questions! Hold on for answers. I just finished a piece on Irina!

M said...

I respectfully disagree with Rudy - Irena is not the type of woman who would be low on any chain. Don't forget.. she was "the Man"... the terrorist to end all terrorists! She's fooled every bad and good organization out there: KGB, CIA, SD6, APO, K-directorate to name a few! I think Peyton, Dean, DeSantis all reported up to her (I'll refer this back to the when Curtis committed suicide saying we wouldn't believe who was in charge, even if we told you!)

I actually rather like the idea that Irena extracted Vaughn... since she knew about his covert activities, and it always seems like she really does have Syd's best intentions.

As for the P5 map - great job!! The only things missing are a line from Dean to DeSantis (since Dean technically extracted him) and a box for "the Watchman", who are now controlling Sloan... also, was Sloan a part of the group that helped to decode P5? I missed that!

Kiki said...

Sloane is part of the group and I agree M. I think Irina has more power than we think.

Someone posted this for me to look at on another site. I haven't verified it, but thought it very interesting if accurate:
"the sd6 map the names CRDT DELPH [Dophene-sp?] and CHASE [Director Chase?] also if you pause on the computer where peyton gets Vaughn's files it shows the access records and the name who accessed them is R Gibson."

Kiki said...

CHASE is also a bank. I think that is what CHASE on the map is refering to. Also, it is possible that Peyton was able to access the information through R. Gibson and it is also possible that Rachel is a mole. oooohhhh!!

RUDY said...

Yeah, I agree that Irina is a head-hancho. But I just feel that she hasn't had enough time to work her way all the way up the P5 chain. I do believe she is in a higher postion than Peyton, but I'm iffy on how high she is. Why is she doing all the errands? One could argue [and I wholeheartedly agree] that Irina is like Sydney. Both like to be hands-on; take matters into their own hands. Do you see a theme yet? Well here it is. This is what I was going for...Sydney was a double agent. She was working for the CIA and destroying SD6 from the inside out. Irina, though her illegates are unknown, LOVES Syd. That fact doesn't seem to go away. Alot of you guys have been saying that Irina is the good guy in bad guy clothing, well here's my theory: Irina is a double agent. Her and Jack are in their own little business. Irina's objective is to uncover and demolish P5 from the inside. So in this position, just like Syd, Irina doesn't have the control that she normally does.

** One thing that led me to believe that Irina isn't high on the P5 chain is Jack's lack of knowledge and surprise of the baby room in Hungary(?)...if my theory that Jack and Irina is working together pans out.

***This is just one of my many theories. It's one that I hope pans out, so punch some holes and let my new theories bleed out.

RUDY said...

My "Jack and Irina" business is a growing arrangement to protect Syd no matter what. P5 took Vaughn and wants Syd. Jack and Irina want to protect Syd, and this arrangement the hope that I want to exist. It's all for Syd...and baby B-V.

I got the screen shots, thanks, I am going to use them later today!

ooo I'm excited for your Irena piece to come GS! I haven't decided where I think Irena falls in the P5 food chain yet. I definitely think she's above Peyton because Kelly really did look scared of Irena, man I love how intimidating she is! No one could do it like Lena Olin. :) Oops sorry, got off track there for a sec. Great map GS! I'm curious about the Shed, because from Horizon it looks like there's another branch where Peyton was examining the files for Vaughn. Are the people there still oblivious to the Shed's true nature or are they all knowingly involved in P5?

Isn't the messenger that is blackmailing Sloane a partner with Peyton? I remember them being in cahoots together in an episode. If it is then that would be another link. I think I will go through the tapes and see if I can find his name.
