Renee- A Chip Off the Old Block

Renee Rienne was a CIA Top 8 Fugitive. She had been on the run for years- and it just so happened, for the last 7 years, she was working along side Andre Michaux- our very own Michael Vaughn.

Early in season 5, we learn that Renee was a sick child and that her father entered into medical experiments with P5, in order to pay for the medical attention his daughter needed. I believe those experiments were related to Dr. DiSantis, brain transplants and cryogenics (as confirmed by the man in the box, Dr. DiSantis himself).

P5 later kidnaped Renee’s father. To save his daughter, he placed her in a closet and told her to be quiet. Renee witnessed her father’s abduction and years later launched a search to find him. In her search she apparently found information on Bill Vaughn or Mr. Michaux. She was able to track down his son, living under a new name and convinced him to help her search for her father and bring down the group that took him. Together they gathered information on P5 and the whereabouts of a cryogenic chamber, which Renee believed contained her father.

Vaughn decided to tell Sydney of his off-books research when he was abducted by P5. Vaughn has information on the whereabouts of a manuscript. P5 wants it. As he was about to handover the manscript to James Lehman- Ivan Curtis- the keeper of the Cryo-box, steps in and “kills” Vaughn.

How is the work that Vaughn’s father did for P5 related to Renee’s father and the medical experiments? What information did Renee run across related to Bill Vaughn? How was Renee able to track down Vaughn with his new name? What is the connection between P5 and the Mueller Device- which eventually lead to Vaughn purposely becoming Sydney’s CIA handler? What information does Vaughn have that would require him to fake his death? What information did Renee have that would have forced Ana to kill her?

What will this chip they find in Renee tell us about her relationship with Vaughn and about their connection to P5? Ideas, comments, theories? We got a big eppy tomorrow, I mean BIG, so let's hash it out!

PS. SpyChat tonight at 7pm PDT. My European bloggers- let me know what times work for you!

PPS. Jennifer Garner will be on Regis and Kelly on May 17th to promote the Alias finale.

I still wonder about that Mueller Device. Elena constructed it last year in Savogda, so what does Vaughn think that has to do with BV? We think that BV and Elena were connected after he gave Nadia over to her as an infant, so what other connections do they have to each other? Vaughn read about the Mueller device when investigating his father, then 10 years later her sister Irina was accused of killing BV, and then 20 years after that Elena was involved with putting together the big red ball Vaughn was investigating to begin with that led him on the path to his dad. It seems these 3 people are very intertwined somehow. What else are we missing?

And what was in that manuscript that P5 took from VAughn? No one ever used the word "Rambaldi" around it (did they?), but it was clear that it was from the same time period, so naturally, we all assumed it was Rambaldi-related. Was it? Hmmm.

Kiki said...

I think it was Ang, but good question. HOW IS THIS ALL CONNECTED?? It's killing me! I can't wait to have the answers. I just wish Alias was sticking around!

Anonymous said...

These are good questions.

There is one I can try to help solve, maybe.

"What is the connection between P5 and the Mueller device...?"

We were told in season 5, episode one that Mueller, the guy who was putting the device together way back in season one, episode one, the guy who was "accedently struck by a car while riding a moped" - is the same guy who founded Prophet 5. I believe it was either Vaughn, or James Lehman telling Vaughn that informs us of this.

I hope that helps.

Kiki said...

Oh, right Anon! I forgot!

Dark Alias said...

very good question, gs. cant wait till tommorrow.

jenn256 said...

wow, I don't even remember that Anon, good call. I think there are some great questions here, and as usual not as many answers :)

Eliza said...

wait, Mueller started Prophet Five? I thought the group had been around for decades...according to Irina. Help, I'm confused. (as usual with alias, lol)

Kiki said...

Freelancer- Mueller was a man who made designs based on Rambaldi's work. He assembled the P5 group- Bill V and James Lehman- to read some of Rambaldi's work. But now that I think about it- I don't think he assembled the group, I think he was a member- if he was killed by a mo-ped, that's suspicious- perhaps he was killed by P5 and it was made to look like an accident.

Desiree said...

I know some answers... I know some answers... but I'm not gonna tell. It would ruin it:P I guess I am not too worried about that!

Kiki said...

Desi- you little TEASE!! You better tell me!!!

jenn256 said...

I think I'm confused, Vaughn says in the episode "Prophecy Five" that he was told Mueller originated Prophet Five, but never mentions naything else about him, escept that Syd's mention of his design was his first clue that perhaps he could trust Renee. She came to him with the Mueller info and that their dads had worked together to break the code of "Profecta Chinque" (Prophet Five). How did she know this, and again how did she learn Vaughn's real name?

Kiki said...

Oh, okay- I just think it's weird that he died by mo-ped. Hmm, maybe I need to go back to the season 1 eppy when he is first mentioned and then watch "Prophet Five" and see what it says.

jenn256 said...

yeah Vaughn never mentions his death in the Prophect Five episode, and I don't remember the part where he dies, so if you can find that, then maybe we can put this together.

No big surprises in the promo, but I needed something for an Alias fix . . .

Urgh, I am serious! Ana touches Vaughn and I will go Chuck Norris on her behind!

Angela said...

They say that no two women kiss in the same way. So if Vaughn kisses Anna, she's done for. :-)

Angie

Kiki said...

Let's hope! Poor Vaughn! All he wants his to go home with Syd and Izzy and now P5 wants him and Ana is doubled as his true love. Depressing!

The very first episode of Alias we see a picture of Mueller. Mueller had made the schematics of the Mueller Device that everyone worked from. 1972 he also put togehter the group who assembled "the best and brightest" to break the Profeta Cinque(sp?) document. He was killed in 2001 by an ambulance(?)while riding his mo-ped. This is the episode where Syd steals the small Mueller device from the facility in China and brings it to Sloane to get back in good with SD-6. Sloane was VERY pleased to get the device.
Then Syd defects to CIA. Vaughn was reading her statement as she finished pages. When he saw her account of stealing the Device it was the first verification that the things Renee had told him were true. That was why Vaughn lobbied to be Syd's handler and when he began actively working with Renee to find Prophet 5.

Kiki said...

Nice Uncle- thanks for the recap- I think this post was bits and pieces of that. Nice work!

Dark Alias said...

i think i might have found somthing on the cardinal. I was researching rambaldi and found his bio on wikipedia. Read this expert:

"...On his 18th year and during his travels to Rome he was introduced to CARDINAL Alexander and..."

why would they call Alexander the VI a cardinal?? just a thought.
here's the direct link:

lhaaheim said...

Oh no! It's gone to spoilers! Must avert eyes! Must look away! Ah it's so hard!!!

So since I can't read things here right now and I already peaked at something I didn't want to know [Thank you DarkAlias, I wish you would have posted that warning sooner :-( ] I will then go off topic! :-) Does anyone else here watch Veronica Mars? Wow that was a great finale, if you watch it and would like to chat about it, please e-mail me at lhaaheim@aol.com. I'm just dying to chat with someone about it and unfortunately I can't find a good VM blog.

Okay it's time for bed; I have to be rested for ALIAS DAY! Vaughn is back! Whoo! I've been missing Vaughn! Goodnight everyone!
