Sydney running through the streets of Shanghai acts out an elaborate scheme to make Bodean, Weiss, Marshall and Vaughn believe she has quit the CIA. We meet Director Hayden Chase- the strong and magnificent Angela Basset. She plays along in the scheme and then offers Sydney a job with APO- a black ops division of the CIA. What Sydney doesn’t know is that Arvin Sloane has been asked to head the team- along side her father, Jack, her trusty partner Dixon and her long, lost love, Vaughn. Later, Weiss, Marshall and Nadia join the team.
Blogger KatyBird offered a very interesting and plausible theory to the forum yesterday. She stated, “Since the break I've been re-watching season 4 and a question remains unanswered -- what proof do we have that APO is actually affiliated with the CIA? We know that Director Chase convinced her to join, but she had to "quit" the CIA first, severing her ties with the agency. Director Chase is APO's only connection. What if Chase is a double agent, and APO is another SD-6? Do you think that Jack and Syd et al could be duped twice? This would take care of the mole question (though Weiss' leaving would still have to be explained....).”
BRAVO KatyBird- I think you hit it! What do you know about APO, or what circumstances would support this theory? If Chase is running an SD-6 like cell, and she and Dixon are an item, does that support my claim that Dixon is perhaps the mole?
This is one of the best theories I have read on the blog, not that others aren't interesting or possible. What do you think? Let's TALK, TALK, TALK Alias!!
Thank you KatyBird for supporting the blog and posting your theory!!
