After the series of endless breaks, Alias is back with at least 4 weeks straight of new episodes! Tonight's episode may just answer the question posed in last week's preview Is Sloane Sydney's father? I for one do not think so. After reading through some Alias forums elsewhere (And getting a little spoiled ) some big things are in store. Episode 18 in particular is said to be the best of the season (entitled Unveiled) though Jennifer Garner's favorite is Episode 19 "Hourglass" according to a new article posted over at Aint it Cool News. This season has been a let down thus far and I'm ready to get back to the glory days. I can't exactly define what's wrong but something is off. Perhaps it's the absence of Lena Olin or the self contained episodes we've been seeing more of recently (Crossings, Remnants). I still trust that the show will soon get it's groove back. J.J. Abrams himself said that the show is going to go through phases. I don't particularly like this phase so hopefully the next one will be more fulfilling.
