The Jerks from the DSR were in possession of the Rambaldi cube, which contained the prophet’s DNA. Sydney and Will had tracked the DNA to Gras, where they battled Sark and Alison for the cube. Enroute to the DSR facility, Project Blackhole, the cube was stolen by Sark and his Rambaldi cronies. Back at his mad science lab in Patagonia, Sark began mixing recipes for Rambaldi offspring- Rambaldi’s DNA and Sydney’s harvested eggs.
This would be the first time we would consider the possibility of Sydney being a mother. But all thoughts and ideas related to motherhood were burned when Sydney, with Dixon’s permission, scorched Sark’s lab. That is, until now. With Sydney’s impending motherhood looming, we can only refer back to Rambaldi and his prophecy that Sydney would be the one to bring forth his works in the form of a child. It would impossible for us not to connect these two very important storylines, as we are on the brink of discovering the purpose of Prophet 5 and who or what Horizon is.
There have been some valid points made about whether or not Sydney is carrying Rambaldi’s baby. We would all love to be confident in the idea that Sydney is mothering Vaughn’s child, as their love has been the glue to the lasting affection we have for the show and for the characters. Take some of these points into consideration-
1. Though the lab was torched, Sark was able to escape. Was he able to smuggle out a test tube of Sydney’s eggs and Rambaldi’s DNA?
2. Vaughn and Sydney are very active Black-Ops agents, it would be conceivable (pardon the pun) that they would take precautions to protect themselves from creating offspring. Alas, heat of the moment should be considered. We all know how hot Syd and Vaughn are!
3. It seems odd or coincidental that upon Sydney learning of her pregnancy that Vaughn would “die” and that P5 would come into play based off a 15th century prophecy.
4. As we saw in the last episode, Jack and Renee stumbled upon a makeshift nursery. What possible purpose could Sydney and Vaughn’s baby have in P5? It seems more likely that a child of Rambaldi would be more important.
Do not view this article as proof that Sydney is in fact carrying Rambaldi’s baby. I strongly believe the little booger growing inside her is part Vaughn. But, we are talking about Alias here. There will be plenty of twists and turns to end the series, and we can not ignore the possibility that Rambaldi will play a main part in not only the outcome of the show, but in Sydney’s life, baby related or not.
What are your thoughts? Are there any other episodes or instances that back up the idea of a Rambaldi baby? Are there any that disprove this or support the Bristow-Vaughn baby?
