Rambaldi. Rambaldi is the one common thread linking all of Sydney’s arch nemesis’. There was the fashionable faction of the Alliance. The group had 12 terrorist cells posing as the CIA to gather intel and firearms and the works of Rambaldi. Then there was the Covenant- the group deeply devoted (almost religiously) to Rambaldi and his work. Behind the scenes, Elena Derevko was manipulating Sydney to meet the needs of her ultimate endgame. Now, we got P5- essentially based on deciphering documents of Rambaldi. The group involves Sloane, DiSantis, Bill Vaughn, Irina, Vaughn, Renee and now Sydney and her baby.
So, aside from Rambaldi, what other connections can be made between these groups? SD-6 and the Alliance, the Covenant and P5 all seemed to have or have had the same agenda- get Sydney (The Chosen One) and collect all of Rambaldi’s artifacts. How are these groups born? What can their leaders (the Alliance members and Sloane, Elena, and the Benefactors) tell us about their operations? All groups have been able to infiltrate the CIA and the US Government, how is that? The Alliance posed as CIA, Lauren played both sides and I am fairly sure there is a P5 mole sitting at the APO table.
Let’s make some connections, let’s discuss these groups- because now we know the Horizon connects SD-6 and P5, so the next couple of episodes will no doubt reveal some secrets that have been haunting Sydney and causing Rambaldi to turn over in his grave.
PS. An article posted on www.alias-media.com has confirmed that JJ Abrams will NOT be directing the last episode of Alias. He has MI:3 conflicts, though he said he will be involved in the production as much as possible. Sad pandas!!
