Who is the leak? Who is the mole? Someone inside APO is letting CIA secrets slip and it could be threatening Sydney’s life, not to mention the life of her baby. Let’s explore the possibilities, as this isn’t the first time we have had to deal with double agents…
Tom Grace? Too obvious. This guy has been all mystery and intrigue since day one, so it would be natural for us to assume he is the mole. He’s new and different, and we Alias fans have a few problems with new and different. We want to question his loyalty, we want to make him the bad guy, but honestly, I don’t think he is the leak. For the obvious reasons, I don’t think Rachel Gibson is the mole either. Her involvement with the CIA virtually shut down Gordon Dean and The Shed, but perhaps that is what the powers that be, the ones who rule P5, wanted. Her naiveté has been very convincing, her relationship with Sydney seems genuine, but then again, on Alias, nothing is as it seems.
Arvin Sloane seems a good fit for the double agent job, as he has been a double agent before (with the Covenant) and he already has connections with P5. Sloane has already slipped information to P5 in regards to the whereabouts of certain weapons and intel. However, the group is blackmailing him with a cure for his daughter.
Jack Bristow set up his own pregnant daughter for kidnapping. He sent her into the field to collect intel from Renee and there, in the park, she is abducted and seemingly tortured. Aside, I don’t think Jack is the mole. I think he and Irina are working together to burn P5 from the inside out. I think he and Irina needed the information from Sydney, but had to make it appear like a P5 power play, perhaps to protect her from the truth- Vaughn is still alive. Hold this thought…I will come back to it.
So, who do I think the mole is? In grand Alias-ness, Sydney’s trusted friend and partner since the beginning, Agent Marcus Dixon. There has been strong rumor that Dixon might be hiding a dark side and what a fabulous twist to have Sydney’s friend turn foe at the most crucial time. There were several months after Dixon found out about SD-6 that he refused to help the CIA, and seemed to spin down a spiral of denial, shame and betrayal. Perhaps this loyal patriot was approached by other agencies, perhaps P5, to be a double agent. Hmmm.
Now, I know this is very much off the topic of APO mole, but I wanted to return to my theory about Jack and Irina. This is it- Jack, Irina, Vaughn, Weiss and Marshall have all been working to bring down P5. They orchestrated Vaughn’s “death,” “promoted” Weiss and have been keeping Sydney in the dark about the inner workings of the terrorist group. I think what Sydney knows about P5 is about as much as we know-nothing. But I think the gang knows something, they know that this groups posses a threat to Sydney. They have to protect her because- why? Because Sydney tends to approach the people that threaten her full force and that is not such a good idea with little SpyBaby yet to make her appearance. I do believe they will let her in on the secret after the baby is born and that she will join them.
I hate to be a “spoiler-sport,” but GO SEE THE PICTURES! They are too fabulous not to!
Okay- who do you think is the mole and why? And what do you think of my theory? Plausible?
