Let us refer back to season 3, to the little episode in which Jack, Sloane and Vaughn go rogue to rescue Sydney from NSC custody. Jack takes Vaughn to his little storage facility, where he houses firearms, tactical gear, passports, cash and thousands of other helpful pieces of CIA equipment. Vaughn makes mentioned that “just by letting me see this place means you have more than one.” Jack replies, “you are smarter than you look.”
We have been part of many of Jack’s off-book missions, specifically his missions when he was working for both the CIA and SD-6. To complete many of the missions he is sanctioned on, Jack has had to come up with counter missions, to either protect Sydney or himself. As I rewatched this episode, I couldn’t help but wonder about the missions we know nothing about. Jack’s little storage dunker maybe a clue to his secret undertakings. We know he has been in contact with Irina, Jack is always in contact with Irina. Perhaps we can assume that Jack has been speaking with Irina in regards to her P5 plans. I think we have all decided that Irina is working with P5 out of Sydney’s best interest, to perhaps protect her from whatever Horizon is. Perhaps Irina needed the location of Horizon to destroy it, so that it doesn’t destroy her daughter(s).
Either way, I believe Jack has been up to something since day one, and now I believe his little secrets will be uncovered by the one person he wishes to keep them from- Sydney. As I have said before, Jack sent Sydney straight to visit Renee to find out about Vaughn’s files. He sent her there with a twinge of regret, which leads me to believe that he knew Sydney was going to be kidnapped and that he has been working with Irina. But I do think that Jack is unaware of P5's plan for his grandchild.
What are your thoughts? I know we have discussed this before, but I would like us to look back at past episodes or instances in which Jack seems to be working covertly. Do you believe Jack is working with Irina? What are they working for?
