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!
