Here is a piece written by blogger Jenn256. Thanks Jenn for your contribution!
In" M*A*S*H", the dedicated doctors were flown home after the war ended. "Cheers" showed everyone move on with their respective lives and we saw the light in the bar be turned off and that was the end. "Freinds" showed all of the friends go off into the sunset and leave their keys to the apartment on the counter and walk away. "Sex in the City" showed all of the girls get everything they wanted in life and also walk into the sunset happy.
As we approach the end of our favorite show I have been left wondering, how will it end? Will all of our questions be answered, or will we be left to come up with our own conclusions? Will the writers, in true Alias style, leave us with a cliff hanger to use our imaginations to end it the way we choose? In a recent blog, there were many different thoughts on how the show would end. Will Sydney finally get what she has said she wanted for so many years? Will she leave the CIA with Vaughn and baby Bristow-Vaughn in tow? Knowing that she has been trained and literally brainwashed all of her life for CIA training, can she really escape? Will she ever be safe? What will happen to Jack and Dixon? And Marshall, poor Marshall! How will he react if Syd does leave?
I suppose the answer to all of our questions will depend on if there will be a spin-off (set in present time or a prequal). What do you all think? How would you like to see our favorite show end? What will happen to Syd? Is Vaughn truley alive? What about Kendall's alliegence? Will Sloane turn out to be the ultra-baddie we all think he is, or true to his word finally, that he is just a devoted father looking for answers? Will Jack and Irina take over APO and work together to rid the world of the evil that is endangering their daughter and granddaughter? And where do you think Rachel and Grace fit into the future of APO and Alias?
Jenn asks some great questions here. Many of us have been thrown for a loop over the years, gasping and screaming at the many twists and turns that Alias has thrown our way. How is it possible for us to even anticipate what writers and producers will dish out for the finale? We are just now piecing together the puzzle of SD-6 and P5 and we still don't know enough concrete information to consider this puzzle in anyway solved.
If you are interested in spoiler, which I am, please check out the leaks from the Alias magazine at www.alias-media.com. There are some tidbits there related to Grace and his secret that I found interesting, as related to Sydney and her baby, and Jack. CAUTION- Spoilers below....to see the spoilers, highlight the text below.
It is said in the magazine that Grace's secret will be revealed, that Jack chose him for a specific purpose. Something has happened to Grace in the past that is connected with Sydney's situation and is in someway connected to Vaughn. Follow me...could it be that Grace's ex-wife was a double-agent? That she married him to acquire information from him related to his CIA work? Suppose Jack asked for him because Jack knew Grace would do anything to bring down an organizatation run by a woman (possibly Irina) who once betrayed her husband. Suppose Jack hired Grace because he would be interested in bring down an organization run by a man (possibly Vaughn) who betrayed the one who loved him. We have been yearning to learn more about Grace, and this connection, if true, is one of the best full-circle plotlines I've read thus far related to this season and it's end. What do you think?
