After last week's episode, I spent some time pondering the return of our favorite boy to hate- Julian Sark. Last we saw him, he bedded Rachel and narrowly escaped the loss of his head while attached to a bomb. Now, he is back, back working for the one and only ally he has ever been truly loyal to- Arvin Sloane.
We are all well aware of Julian's admiration for Sloane- he looks up to him, idolizes him and now, in Arvin's time of need, Sloane has called upon Julian to no doubt do his dirty work. But let us not underestimate Sark. He is more than a gopher. He offed the leader of the FTL, he single handedly brought down K-Directorate, he traded Vaughn's antidote for Sloane's life and set in motion a strategic alliance between Sloane and Irina. Along side Lauren he became the co-chair of the North American cell for the Covenant and eventually killed Kazari Bomani. Each time he has either evaded the CIA or become their willing partner. He's got a school boy crush on our gal Syd and a burning hatred for Michael Vaughn. And he's back. He is back at the most important time- the end.
Sark's obsession with Rambaldi has been downplayed compared to Sloane and Irina's obsession- but the man has invested nearly $800 million in the research and discovery of all things Rambaldi. His father, Andrian Lazarey, bore the symbol of Rambaldi, but so fiercely refused to get involved with the Covenant that he faked his own death. Is it possible that Sark too, plays a role in Rambaldi's end game? What does Sloane need from our little British baddie? Are Sark, Sloane and Irina once again working together to acquire all the pieces to the puzzle?
Frankly, I am glad he's back. Aside from his sparkling blue eyes, blonde locks and randy accent, Sark always has a wrench to throw in the wheel. What will the wrench be this time?
