This is a comment from Blogger PKRM. I think he hit the nail on the head. PS. I owe some credit to Robetron as well. He also hit the same nail on the head- and I didn't read his entire comment. I am sorry Robby- I owe you one.
OK, here goes:
Sydney told Anna it was a waste of time, "We disproved these writings years ago." AND THEY DID! However, SYDNEY IS NOT THE CHOSEN ONE...ANNA IS!By replicating Sydney, she has all those physical characteristics that Rambaldi wrote about. By replicating Sydney, she is "the woman here depicted." I'm going to venture a guess Anna has never seen Mt. Subasio. Anna, unless prevented, will render the greatest power unto utter desolation!Also, the Passenger and the Chosen One will do battle, and only one will survive!!! We already know Nadia will be back, and using this theory, Nadia will be the one to kick Anna's butt up and down the Los Angeles coast! We have missed the entire point until now! Sydney CANNOT be the Chosen One, she's disproved it! However, Anna with Syd's genetics can fulfill that prophecy...and who better? The most psychotic Rambaldi lunatic aside from Sloane since the very beginning! And we know that Rambaldi knew about genetics, they were all over in his work. The very paper, "The fifth prophet," that named our current bad guys was about "advanced genetics 500 years ahead of its time" according to Lehman in the Season 5 pilot!Also, Gordon Dean said that Prophet 5 had "plans" for Sydney...this is what he was talking about! This is also why Peyton was concerned kidnapping Sydney to find the Horizon could "compromise their larger agenda!" This isn't tacked on, this is the whole point!P5 is trying to fulfill the Prophecy on page 47!!! What do you think???
It was right there in front of us the whole time! Rachel asking about Rambaldi- her reading the script to everyone!! It was a MAJOR CLUE. And now that Sloane has the cure for Nadia, she will be back to fulfill her end of the prophecy.
Remember when Nadia's doctor freaked out on Sydney in season 3? He was fearful that the Chosen One would do harm to the Passenger. We kept thinking- why would Sydney hurt her sister? WELL, because the Chosen One is not really Sydney!
So, now we can look forward to a battle- an epic Rambaldi battle between Sydney Espinoza and Nadia! The great thing is- Nadia will have the real Sydney's help to defeat their ultimate enemy!
PS. When did I actually say that I thought this was a filler? I don't think I said that. I think I said that it felt odd that the writers seemed to be focusing on new story. I didn't say filler. Who is putting words in my mouth?? I am off to watch the episode again with all this new insight. Don't forget- SpyChat tonight 6:30pm MSN Messenger. But I will be on all day.
Stay tuned for my bit on Sloane and the 12. I got some good stuff.
