    Just a heads-up for Alias fans that the season finale will be wrapped up in 2 back-to-back episodes tonight.

    (Note, I've removed the spoiler warnings 5/5/03)

    strange twist, not sure how they're gonna resolve this one. A little Bobby Ewing-esque no?

    Okay, now that I've thought about it:

    Irina said that Sydney and Sloane were the two main players when it came to the prophecy. Well, I think Sloane used the Rambaldi "The Telling" device on Sydney, and somehow she got thrown ahead 2 years somehow.

    Since its over...i'm not gonna bother spoilerizing:

    I don't know whether to think the ending is a cheap-ass trick that isn't original or what. Now that can basically ignore all the building they did between the characters over the past seasons since she has been missing for 2+ years. Next season I'm sure we'll have a full set of repressed memories being brought to the surface with the "just in time to remember cause I've been there before" scenarios. We still don't know what the device is also.

    When they cut to her in the street I was initially thinking that she would wake up and have dreamed everything and SD6 would still be active, but instead its the whole "went missing for multiple years and now everything has changed."

    Hopefully next season won't rely on just cheap story lines.

    Please folks, use spoilers for the next few hours, lest we truly spoil it for our west coast brethren.

    WTF?! Ok, I'll admit I NEVER EVER saw that one coming. J.J. Abrams must be a big fan of Flight of the Navigator. [​IMG]

    I think Vaughn has left the CIA by what he said to Syndey in the safehouse "they brought me back..."

    Can't wait to see if Marshall and Carrie got hitched and had kids. Can you imagine Marshall as a dad?

    Is Kendall stuck at this job of his for 2 years?

    WTH? That was awful.

    So many interesting things they had going and could have focused on, but they gave us nothing. No wrapup on Sloane, no status of Jack, Dixon, Irina. Just horrible. I mean, as far as I can tell, Will and Francie have always been a subplot really. I kept saying to my wife "enough of Will & Grace, let's get back to Sloane and Rimbaldi."

    I mean, they might as well have just started a new spinoff. I mean, are we supposed to think any of this is related to Rimbaldi? We still are given no real clue what that is. Are we supposed to think that Syd was used to fulfill evil prophecies? Why did they bother holding Jack during the building of the device? How did Sloane's visit to the temple last week have anything to do with this? (i.e. what did he learn that was so important). And so many more questions . . .

    Just totally bizarre how they worked nothing into the ending and jumped off the deep end. I expected an open ending cliffhanger, but come on. At some point there has to be some continuity to the story line.

    I'm disappointed. Not so disappointed I won't keep watching next year, but they could have done better. I guess I'm disappointed because we have nothing concrete to use to speculate what happened with the whole "two year gap" thing.

    One more thing from my wife . . .

    When my wife read my post, she added that we do have the clue of Syd's scar. Took an organ? Operation?

    Oh, and we were cracking up when they pulled away from her laying on the ground in Hong Kong in the fetal position and I said (for Syd) "What's going on? I know everything, but can't remember my name! [​IMG]"

    I won't be watching next season. It's too bad a great cast and great production values are being wasted on plotting that's the quality of a 10-cent serial western.
