She looks pretty mad, right? Yeah. Irina's a little pissed that Kendall won't get her go to Kashmir to help Sydney and Jack disarm the suitcase nukes. She gets over her anger pretty quick, Kendall let's his guard down and the SpyFam is off on their first mission together.
I love how Lena Olin is able to keep all of her emotions contained. Many of her first scenes are shot inside Irina's CIA cell, and it is very true of her character to keep an even temperment, to have control in that confined environment. However, in this situation, looking down the barrell of a way out of her cell, she lets loose. She unleashes her frustration with not only the CIA, but with Sydney. Sydney jumps back from the glass in shock, when her mother slams her palm on the glass. Awesome moment, love it!!
