Ana Espinoza- born in Cuba, the last of the Cold War babies, has been giving our gal Sydney grief since season 1. A former K-Directorate assassin, turned freelance terrorist, Espinoza has either been one step ahead, or one step behind. We know little of her history with Sydney before season 1, but she was introduced as Sydney’s top rival- equally clever, equally strong and equally kick-ass.
The last we saw, Ana had just helped Sark escape CIA custody and they were on their way to trade a Ramaldi artifact. She and Sydney battle it out, and finally- our girl wins! Ana has been lurking for years; she kidnapped Nadia and now it looks like she has fancy for kidnapping. She is after Will and only Sydney (the one and only) can save the day.
Tonight- while you bask in the glory that is old-school Alias, let’s see if we can’t find the answers for…
-How Ana was able to escape CIA custody.
-How Ana was able to gain access to the Witness Protection files in order to track Will down.
-How did Ana even know about Will?
-Is it possible that Ana is the Cardinal? Was Tom able to access Will’s Witness files while in Langley and pass it on to Ana?
-Is it possible that Ana has been working for P5 all along under the cover of freelancer? Perhaps that is how she was able to escape the CIA, with contacts inside the CIA.
I will be posting my episode recap tonight at 9:30pm PST. Tonight’s recap will be slightly different than last week’s. Though I plan to write as I watch, the article will be less of a play by and play and more of a complete synopsis of the episode- including call backs, references and any and all ideas I may have about where the story is taking us.
I am so thrilled that Will is back! Ecstatic! But, first and foremost- our gal Syd is back in action!! No more preggo! Just a sweet baby and a mom on a mission. YAHOO!
PS. Yahoo TV has 3 clips of tonight's episode. Looks A-MAZ-ING!
