Kind. Rewind: Anna was taken into custody, Sark escaped,
and Nadia recovered from her gunshot wound and coma.

of Alias were supposed to be moral tales meant
to teach the viewer a lesson every week, then "The
Index’s" lesson would be don’t trust your
father because you will ultimately find out that he is lying
It would also tell you that even though
you think something might be a part of your past, like Care
Bears or Strawberry Shortcake, things have a way of coming
back to haunt you later in life. I mean first there’s
the reappearance of Anna, Sark, and the Rambaldi mythology
and now the Alliance is coming back as well? What is it
with recycling these old plot points, and what new spin
will Mr. Abrams put on them in order to keep us interested?
and Sloane are up to something, but what they needed the
Blackwell Index for and whom they are intending to bribe
is still up in the air. My guess: It’s probably Director
you might ask? Well, for several reasons actually. The first
being that Angela Bassett is a big name guest star that
will never become a full-time cast member so it’s
easy to assume that she won’t last the season. Secondly,
she and Dixon were doing some major flirting in last night’s
episode and that is never a good sign because all relationships
on this show are doomed. And my third and final reason is
for thinking this is that Sloane and Jack haven’t
included her in whatever it is they’re doing.
could either mean that both of them have gone over to the
dark side, which I highly doubt, or that they’re looking
for dirt on Chase. Of course, this is just my own idea about
whatever it is that’s going on at this point, and
I have been known to be wrong in the past. I mean look at
what I said about Desperate Housewives last year.
Nostradamus I am not.
or not Chase turns out to be a bad guy, it was nice to see
Dixon getting a storyline of his own for once. One of the
problems that I have always had with Alias is that though
it’s an ensemble show, the focus is usually on Sydney.
Rightly so, I guess. But, it’s nice to see the other
characters that make this show so rich and interesting,
get to step forward and stand in the spotlight from time
I was also really excited that they brought
back the storyline involving Vaughn’s father and that
there’s more there than we originally thought there
had been. The only problem is that these scenes didn’t
seem to fit with the rest of the episode. The fathers lying
theme was still strong here, but it seemed a little disjointed.
"The Index" was a satisfying episode, even if
it didn’t seem to pick up where last week’s
episode left off. I mean, Nadia got shot and she is now
good as new and there’s no mention of her injury?
That seemed a little off, but it didn’t affect the
episode all that much. Other high points in the episode
included watching Weiss sweat when he mentioned hanging
out with Nadia in front of Sloane, and Spy Sis saving Jack
in that red hot Mustang.
and before I forget, it seems that this episode was trying
to tell us one more thing last night: Never date your co-star
because after you break up and you still have to kiss them
onscreen, everyone out there in TV land will be able to
tell that the chemistry is totally dead.
actually it was probably telling Jennifer Garner this more
than the viewers..
