Okay, here I am, in bed, watching the gloriousness that is season 2 and I am reading everyone's comments about inconsistencies in the story now that we have hindsight (ohhh, I am not the part where Syd first comes into the CIA rotunda. I heart the rotunda) and it hit me!!!
It is mentioned that Sydney, at one time, lived with Arvin and Emily after Irina died. Sydney, years later, starts working for Sloane, has he recruits her under Jack's nose. Sloane invites her over for dinner and she meets Emily. Are you telling me, Sydney Anne Bristow, master CIA agent who has been trained since childhood, doesn't recognize Arvin or Emily? (Sorry, sad moment, Syd just saw her mom in CIA custardy, hahaha). And Emily? Are you telling Emily doesn't know that the woman at her dinner table is the same little girl that stayed with her and Arvin? Are you telling me Emily doesn't have questions about why Sydney doesn't remember them?
I am soooo confused by this! Why put it in there if its inconsistent? Isn't there a master time line? A Bible of all things Alias, that the writers can reference? The history, the background, the who, what, where, when and why of Alias!!!?? Come on JJ- you are a writer man!! You know that inconsistency is the death of a TV show!
Now, go on read my post below... that was my rant. Hahaha!
