I find it a little interesting in how Alias has come full circle in some respect as it was a show about Sydney playing a double agent, having to figure out how to betray those she's come to be friendly with, and then we have Lauren doing the exact same thing, but from different organizations. So now, everytime Lauren shows up, you wondering how she'll get herself out of the sticky and precarious situation she's been in all this time (2 years). Now, it's Lauren who's doing the sneaky things that we applauded Sydney for doing and getting away with, and now we have to always see how Lauren will sabotage the CIA from within without getting caught or compromised.
While we get the intro to Katya as a no-nonsense, dangerous, but passionate player in the mix, the episode felt like it was just marking time because the iminent danger to Vaughn and Sydney never felt all that dangerous, which undermined the tension for me.
Is it me, or does Katya remind you of James Spader (on "The Practice" nowadays).
I did like the nod to MacGuyver from Vaughn's kickstarting the vehicle.
Jack: his attraction to Russian women is going to get him in plenty of trouble.
Hey, wasn't Sark's handler in "The Mummy"?
So what did y'all think of Sark's real accent? The actor, David Anders, was born in Oregon (Hey, how about him being from the Portland branch of the CIA), so I'm guessing that's how David sounds in real life.
