Alright! It is Alias Day and what better way to start off the day then with a few tips and trades for watching tonight’s episode. Tonight, while watching 5.14 “I See Dead People,” keep the following in mind:
The De-Tale of Two Syds
Tonight we will be getting a double dose of Sydney Bristow- well, sorta. Sydspinoza will be in full force tonight and I don’t want us having any confusion. As I have mentioned, Sydspinoza tends to do business with a scowl or glare-accented by heavier make-up. She will no doubt be awkward in conversation, especially with Vaughn, and will seem unsure of herself. There will be over acting, followed by strange glances. Of course, Alias will give us the classic looks of deceit and guilt- so it should be fairly easy to tell the two apart. Remember- we know there is a double, the characters don’t- the purpose of the double is for intrigue, not to confuse us.
With Sloane now full fledge bad guy, we can expect that he won’t be hanging around APO. So, that means P5 will have to get their APO intel from another source. Be looking for another mole- someone leaking information from inside APO.
In relation to the episode title- I believe we will be seeing some long gone familiar faces this evening. Sloane will be haunted by visions from the past. How do these visions (characters) affect the story? Depending on who returns- what can their role in the past tell us about their role now? Why did they come back? Will it be Emily? Nadia? Elena? Francie even?
Vaughn, Renee and the Chip
VAUGHN RETURNS tonight!! Let's see if his love for Syd is blind or if he picks up on the double. I feel a Sydspinoza-Vaughn fight coming on! YAHOO!
Aside from Vaughn's love-hate relationship with Syd/Sydspinoza, there will be his relation to the mysterious chip. There has been much speculation on the blog about what the chip is and what it contains. We know it has some connection to Vaughn and that it might reveal information about his dealings with Renee. Grab on to any and all information regarding the chip. What was it for? Why was it implanted in Renee? What does it have to do with Vaughn?
All in all, I am very excited about this particular episode. Though doubles have been used before on Alias, they always add a little spice. Let’s see if we can’t gather enough information to finally put some of our questions to rest!
I will be posting my episode recap tonight at 10pm- that is, if I can concentrate- as I will be watching LOST tonight. Remember, the LOST blog is open and I am hoping SRG might be posting another recap for us. Also, remember- this post is not for running recaps as you watch the show. Keep comments small. We will have SpyChat tomorrow night at 6pm, so we can hash out the big stuff then.
Happy viewing and happy blogging!
