T.T.T.W (Things To Think About on Wednesday)

It’s here. Alias is back in its Wednesday time slot and Sark returns ladies and gents. My, my, won’t it be a lovely Wednesday evening?

Though I am positive the show will focus on Sark, Rachel and Syd, I am hoping that Sloane and his association with P5 will be explored further. This mystery P5 messenger is pledging me. Aside from being vaguely familiar, as if we’ve seen him before, he and Peyton are the only connections to p5 we have left. Sydney and Jack have no idea this messenger exists, and there are no leads on Peyton’s whereabouts. There are no easy answers to the P5 questions and I am guessing there will not be until the season, or should I say, series finale.

I am wondering if Sark has any affiliation with P5. It has been mentioned that Sark maybe knocking boots with more than one Alias female. Kelly Peyton seems to be the natural bad girl alternative to Rachel, so perhaps Sark becomes involved with P5. He’s a wheeler and dealer, he’s a one man show. He loves alliances and contracts, so it would be very understandable if Sark joins Peyton on quest for whatever it is P5 wants.

As I mentioned in another article, keep your Alias eyes peeled for signs of Vaughn. This is the lead-in episode to Vaughn's return. I am hoping this episode will end with a cliffhanger. As much as I hate biting my nails down to nothing anticipating the next episode, I would love for the show to go hiatus with 2 fabulous episodes.


*Spoilers ahead

There has been much talk in recent weeks about Alias’ 100th episode. Episode 12 will mark the centennial episode for the show and many critics and gossip columnists have mentioned that ABC has a star-stubbed show planned. The return of many beloved characters will pack a punch as Alias hits mid-season.

Recently, at the premiere of Memoirs of a Geisha, Bradley Cooper (the saucy Will Tippin) commented that Jennifer Garner visited the set of Alias days before she gave birth. That’s very sweet, reportedly she stopped in to hand out Christmas gifts, but did you read between the lines??? Bradley Cooper was on the set of ALIAS!!! YAHOO! We have been craving Will ever since he bedded his old pal Syd and returned to Wisconsin as Jonah. There was some plot leak, that Thomas Grace will dig into some Witness Protection files for help in a case. Could that be Will's lead-in? With Sark back, and Vaughn returning, it’s very appropriate that Bradley reprise is role. The Alias men back in action. I couldn’t be happier!

There has been talk that SpyMommy has been busy filming movies, but that she will return, possibly for the birth of her grandchild. No word yet on whether or not a contract has been signed. It is rumored the SpyBaby will be born on episode 11. So, it looks like Sydney will be waiting as long as Jen did to pop the bambino out. Can't wait!

Any thoughts on the 100th episode? Any tips for watching tonight's episode? Remember- It's tonight, 10pm PST after Lost.

dammit, I had my whole post typed and accidentally pressed the back button, grrr. Ok, let's see if I can remember what I typed. Holy crap, I knew Irena was supposed to make a return, but if Will comes back I'll be sooo happy!! Is the bad chick's name really Kelly Peyton? I thought Peyton was her first name, shows how well I've been paying attention. :) I could definitely see Sark getting mixed up w/ a girl like that. I also hope for a cliffhanger at the end of tonight's episode, bring back the nail biting!!

Kiki said...

I thought her name was Peyton too, but I went back to watch a few of the episodes and Dean calls her Kelly a couple of times. Cliffhanger would ne nice, huh? I love the old cliffhangers, "You've been missing for 2 years."

srg-alias said...

haha ok, good to know I wasn't the only one that thought that was her first name. :)

AAHH!! My VCR just bit the dust last night... I'm going to be gone tonight, so I probably won't get to see this episode. Yuck!! I'll look forward to reading all the "low-down" tomorrow! (I also thought her name was Peyton... weird!)

Kiki said...

Oh No Tammy! Well, I will go the best damn review of the show ever, so you can get all the dirt!! I'll be sure to be very detailed and visual, as Sark is de-lish! My VRC is as old as me! I think my parents had it when I was born. Good thing I tape at a friends!

I hope the spoilers prove to be true. We are all craving the return of Will and Irina.

Can't wait.

I'M 'ERE, SHE'S 'ERE, WE MADE IT!

A day of heaven it will be to see mr. tippin and vaughn. As these last two episodes come and go, i will surely find myseld in denial each week forced to watch some other show and catch up on what has been going on there, still thinking of syd, vaughn, and the whole gang in the back of my head. Boo to break we are forced to take...but long live dvd's of seasons 1-4! They shall keep me sain...it just not better leave us hanging or pissed.

Kiki said...

Um Sling-shot, you need to work on your typing skills. Don't make me look like a fool. (Sling shot is my sister, for all who don't know). By the way, can you bring those season with you this weekend and leave them with Mom and Dad?

Robetron said...

Because "House" wasn't on this past Tuesday, I manage to catch most of "Kitchen Confidential" (where Will and Vaughn pretended to be other characters). It was amusing to see them acting in a comedy, but it is a silly little show and I would be surprised if it lasted very long, if it has not been cancelled yet. Vartan putting on an outrageously thick French accent was sickening. I kept waiting for him to shoot someone.

Oh well. Maybe there will be time for them both to return to where the good writing is.

I thought Peyton was her first name too! What the crap? Anyway, ooh! Will Tippin. That's pretty crazy news! I tell ya what, though, for this 100th episode, there better be some good people back. Like Irina, for one. If they end this show with no Irina... I'll be mad.

Also, this has nothing to do with... anything, but I have been watching my Friends DVDs and I just watched the ones with Michael Vartan (which made me miss Vaughn more...) and Isabella Rossellini. Funny stuff. :)

Kiki said...

I was thinking the other day, after watching Kitchen Confidental with Michael and Bradley (Brad says at one point, "I feel like we've worked together before") how sad it will be not to have the gang around anymore. No more Dixon, Weiss, Marshall. No Jack and Sloane, NO SYD, NO VAUGHN! Sad really. Trying not the think about it anymore.

I thought her name was Peyton, too! Odd for a woman to be called by her last name. I would absolutely LOVE for Will to come back, but for me, Irina is always the ultimate character. When she came back last season I was GIDDY with excitement!

Actually... women go by their last name all the time in the military/other services. I think it's kind of odd that everyone calls the females on Alias by their first name, but it's largely (I think) because they all know each other so well, or want to have more than a professional relationship.

paul said...

I caught the Kitchen Confidential on Monday night too...I have to say, it was very silly, but I laughed a lot, if nothing more than to see Will and Vaughn back together in the same scene...I'm sure they must have enjoyed working together again!

And yes, the accent was pretty outrageous! hehe!

birdietwoshoes said...

I'm with ya, Queenmab. I wasn't going to even start watching S4 reruns on TNT since I hadn't finished S3 yet. But when I heard Irina was coming back, I too was giddy. She is my favorite character. Love rewatching old S2 eps with her.

you all need to get TIVO - its like having the dvds before they come out because you can save all the shows and watch over and over with no commercials!!!!

i LOVE will and i will be so excited if he comes back!!!
