In thinking about where our show is and where it is headed, I have been wondering about the key players in the show and if there is something we have been missing. I then stumbled upon a thought that I think needs further exploration.
Jack Bristow is a very intelligent man. Top notch CIA operative, former double agent and he always seems to know what is going on everywhere with everyone. So how is it that after the betrayal by his wife, "Laura Bristow," and then working side by side with Arvin Sloane over the years, Jack doesn't have any more knowledge about Rambaldi than anyone else? Do we not think that Jack would have wanted to know what was so important about this 15th Century Prophet that took his wife and family away from him? In his discovery could Jack have come across the information that perhaps his daughter would be "The Chosen One?" Where I am going with this is....could Jack have always known about Sydney's place in this prophecy and therefore, decided she needed Project Christmas training to protect herself from people like her mother and Sloane, who would stop at nothing to fulfill this man's endgame? Jack has always acted very aloof about Rambaldi, but perhaps along with Sloane using the CIA for Rambaldi resources, Jack has also been doing the same thing to gain information to keep his daughter alive.
I understand that Jack, along with Vaughn, was the person to take Sydney to Mt.Subasio to prove the theory wrong. But if he is concerned with his daughters life, he would not stop protecting her just because she climbed to the top of a mountain. I am not sure that Jack believes in this Rmabaldi prophecy, but I think the concern for Sydney's life after seeing what his wife and best friend went through for this prophect concerns him more.
Could Jack have been one of the people who knew about Prophet 5 years ago, or could he have known Bill Vaughn and heard about what Prophet 5 had planned for his daughter so many years later. We have been led to believe all of these years that Jack programmed Sydney with Project Christmas training so she would go into the CIA and be an agent to do away with people like her mother, but maybe we have been looking at it wrong. Maybe Jack wanted her to be ready for these radical Rambaldi followers who wanted her to complete whatever it is they think they need her for or from her.
So what do you all think? We know there has always been more to Jack than we knew. Am I close, or way off?
