I just absolutely love that Sydney is so utterly disgusted by Sloane in season 3 that she can't even take his arm on a mission! Love it! He tells her she looks lovely and she says "Spare me." He asks her to dance and she replies, "Like hell!" Seriously, JG is amazing in season 3.
So, here I am- lying in bed, blogging, watching Alias. My life is complete. I am actually watching episode 3.7, which has one of my favorite scenes of all time between Jack and Vaughn. The NSC tasks Lauren and Vaughn to pick up Javier Perez in Mexico City. Jack is worried that Javier will spill the beans to Lauren about Sydney and the Lazarey murder.Vaughn takes offense and then Jack has them ambushed. Oh, love me some SpyDaddy strategy. So, Jack hops on down to Mexico and strings Javier up in his cell. Pobre Javier!
Vaughn figures Jack put the armed rebels on their trail and confronts him. Seriously- it's the greatest scene of all time! Vaughn gets right in Jack's face, grabbing him by the collar. Jack shoves him back and says "Perhaps finally you understand the moral sacrifices you are will to make when someone you love is in danger." Oh, the tension, anger and frustration! I am telling you, it is that scene that makes season 3 so damn good!
Okay, I think we established the fact that Sydney did not send Sloane a letter in the mail the day before she woke in Hong Kong. It had to have been forged by the Covenant in order to prompt Sydney to investigate her missing 2 years. The Covenant needed the location of the Rambaldi DNA, which Sydney hid. So, Sloane gives her back the letter with the code, which ends up being the location of Julia Thorne's apartment in Rome. Why in the sam hell would Sydney Bristow actually believe that she would have sent a letter to Arvin Sloane? COME ON! She hates the dude's guts! She wouldn't have sent him the key and location of her apartment. She had to have known right then that it was all a set up by the Covenant, by Sloane. But, perhaps she is so utterly desperate to find out what happened to her that she was going to take any lead, even if it came from the man that killed Danny and lied to her.
Also, if Sydney did decide to have her memory erased why would she leave herself clues? She didn't want to know what happened to her!!!
Oooh, Sark in the car with Lauren. Now, did we decide that as a member of the Covenant that Lauren must have already known who Lazarey's killer was? Or no? Because she acts really surprised in the car after she takes a peek at the pictures Sark gives her. So, then she gives A-hole Lindsey a call and Vaughn realizes what Lauren has just done- put Sydney in danger. Crap! Vaughn contacts Syd and takes her to Dover- to a flight anywhere. Sydney of course HAS to go to her penthouse apartment in Rome. Vaughn has just sacrificed his marriage and his position at the CIA to help save Sydney. "Why are you doing this?" she asks. He replies, "Even though some things change, some things don't. I'm not going to lose you twice." GAWD, melt my heart, are you kidding! PS. Vaughn is looking mighty fine in this episode. I mean, the sultry blue eyes are killin' me. No wonder Lhaaheim is so obsessed!
Lauren's pissed and spends the remainder of the episode with a scowl on her face. She wipes Dixon of his standing at the CIA- obstruction of justice my backside. Lauren instructs that the LA office is to be in lock down until Lindsey arrives. She's so frickin' smug the whole time. I just want to grab her by her chipmunk cheeks and skake the accent out of her!! Sorry, I took it a little far.
Back in the Rotunda (which I miss dearly) Jack realizes that Vaughn is the one who helped Sydney flee the country. Jack asks, "Tell me, what else are you willing to do to see Sydney through this?" Vaughn replies with a smirk, "What did you have in mind?" Ah, well, a little plan I like to call BREAKING INTO A HEAVILY GUARDED GOVERNMENT FACILITY. Sweet!
Sydney arrives in Rome and she flips on the lights like she's lived in that apartment for years. She sees the images from her dreams and then takes a trip to the toilet. While rummaging through Julia's medicine cabinet she is taken into custody by what I believe to be an NSC team. Pobre Sydney!
On to 3.8- Sydney in big bad NSC lockdown. Is it me or does Robert Lindsey have a bit of a speech impediment? HAHA! I love that Dixon makes an ass of him by turning over his badge without a fight. Gosh, Lauren even starts to look evil in this episode. She plays her little "ignorance is bliss" game. "Oh, Lindsey is letting me write the brief, blah, blah, blah..." She and Vaughn have a a lash of words and then she is off to "particpate in an orchestrated cover up."
Now, the boys are cooking up a sweet plan to get our girl out. This is sooo fun! I love all this behind the scenes stuff, making plans, evading the law. LOVE IT! Can I be a spy already? I am surprised the CIA hasn't contacted me. Jack is looping Sloane in on plan. SURPRISE! They are going to make the break out look like the work of the Covenant. Off to FEMA to get the blueprints of the facility and to play a little chess in the park with my man Brill... (cue black out) A L I A S
More to come later. YAHOO TGIF!
