    Those who didn't the preview last week do not read:

    Evil Francie returns tonight in an all new Alias!

    I was watching Kill Bill the other night and the domestic disturbance scene of The Bride vs. Vernita reminded me oh so much of Sydney vs. Evil Francie. I hope this really gets the season kicking back into it's full glory. It will be interesting to see how she survived not one, not two, but three shots to the chest. Only on Alias. It's reminding of the rules of X-files where nobody really dies.

    And is anyone else noticing the similarities between Alias and 24?

    1. Both star very attractive people who work for the government.
    2. Both are in their 3rd season in which both have jumped ahead a few years.
    3. Both usually end on cliffhangers.

    I can't think of anymore though. I'm sure there's others.

    Let me be the first to say: They'd better have a boffo explanation as to why Allison/Evil Francie is still alive! I'm guessing this has something to do with Rambaldi... no one takes three shots to chest, a house-leveling fire and survives without some serious help.

    I'm betting Sark is mondo-happy his girlfriend lives! [​IMG]

    Dixon: "I want that bitch dead!"

    And, after seeing the ending of this ep, the appropriate answer seems to be "You and what army." Now that we have our own genuine Rambaldi supervillian flitting about, how does this change the show? Imho, suspension of disbelief went out the window... either you're in or you're out from this point forward.

    Syd better hope that Milo left some Allison Kryptonite sitting around somewhere. [​IMG]

    Very cool episode and I am glad they:
    flashed back to when Allison shot Francie. That was interesting.

    Also glad they:
    left Allison alive for future appearances.

    Perhaps the secret Syd has in her head is the Rambaldi formula and they used it on her too during her lost 2 years.

    Great lines in this episode as already mentioned above.

    Vartan's puck slapping made me think of the report awhile back of him nailing Alan Thicke during a hockey game. Broke his nose and some teeth if I remember correctly.

    Don't forget about the slow mo Sydney run and Lauren in her skivvies!

    Well this goes down for me as the first [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] (out of 5) episode of the season.

    Everything was excellent about this one. It's fun seeing Sloane back in action. Gotta love the proposal song. Things are getting really intriguing with EF.

    And as tasty as the shots of Ms. George and Garner may be, what's the point? I watch Alias for Alias alright? I'm not saying that they both aren't incredibly hot, I'm just saying it seems slightly gratuitous.

    I'm a new viewer,but I'm already hooked.
    I have purchased season 1[watched it already],and I always wanted Francie to be "killed",she just annoyed the heck out of me.I guess all this was in season 2,can't wait to get it.
    Anyhow,is Francie and Alison played by the same actress,or they just "look a like"?
    Next to 24 this is my new favorite show.[​IMG]

    Allison and Francie are the same actress (Merrin Dungey). Too bad the whole Francie switcheroo-shocking thing (when it all went down) will be lost on you now because it was rather shocking last season.

    I can't no one mentioned Marshall's drumming and singing. Classic!

    Overall, another fun romp for an Alias episode. Super-Allison does has that X-Files vibe to it now. If Allison starts sprouting claws in future episodes, you'll know that she not only got an enhanced healing factor, but adamantium bones as well...

    It looks like Dixon's balls finally descended.

    "Three in the head, and you know they're dead." Sydney needs to embrace this motto.

    Actually, I don't believe Sydney wanted to kill her, to finish her off... not after the revelation of the 'formula', hence the shot to the stomach instead of the head. Why? Because later she was talking to Vaughn telling him that they had to go get her, she had information that syd needed.


    Oh ya, and Marshall's song rocked! [​IMG]
