OMG, the bastards killed Jack!

On the other hand...You beat death, but you couldn't beat me. Damn great final moment. And Sloane gets to live forever...alone and buried under several tons of rock. It's been done, but I like it. He shot Jack! He deserves it.

Oh Syd, poor, incredibly stupid Syd. Which mission caused the brain damage? First there was leaving Debbie to be easily discovered. They're called closets, use one! Then she tells Irina she's no longer her mother and vows to stop her...only to turn around the second it looks like she's going to die and offer to save her. WHAT?!

And Irina was the Queen Bitch of the Universe all this time? I'm just surprised her final evil plan didn't involve sacrificing Isabelle on an alter.

Marshall rocked.

My friend divahag pointed out this classic Rachel moment:

rachel: "what happened to your wife was a crime"

well, yeah. she was murdered.


I don't know though. Rachel's response to the date that will never be, "I would have said yes if you asked." was the line that had me reaching for the remote to heave at the screen.

And I just learn Tom's name and he done get blown up! I wish I cared.

Merrien Dungey, why did you bother?

Sark's balls seemed to be on loan. He didn't want to shoot Marshall and Rachel? Huh? What? I blame Lauren for this!

Peyton may be able to scare Ilyria. Well, at least I thought so until the snake showed up. Who else thought "Snakes. It had to be snakes."? ;)

All and all, it could have been worse.
  • Current Mood: relieved relieved
They did WHAT?!

Aw, shit. Now I don't even want to watch.

Fuck you, Alias creative team.
I shouldn't be laughing. ;)

Lee's expression matches mine through much of the ep.

And why did you read this if you planned on watching?! It was a good death though. Actually, it's now strangely reminiscent of a certain vampire's death...
Yeah, Fred rocked hard until the snake thing.

I didn't think a woman like that would tell her “best friend” what her sekrit squicky phear was in the first place.
Ya know, there were so many things that didn't make sense in this that I overlooked that one. And I'm still finding it hard to believe that Peyton could be undone by one snake. And what happened to her? We know Sark is still being Sark, but did she end up in Irina's old cell?
Re: all of it: OH FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

Well, at least JJ has been consistent lo these past three seasons. Consistently a hack.
i knew jack was gonna die, and it had to be in a spectacularly heroic way. poetic, even.--although i found myself sorta wishing he would fall into the rimbaldi bath. imagine the spin-off? arvin and jack head off into eternity, righting wrongs, bickering over gets to take credit. instant classic.

i'll always remember jack making isabel laugh and his wonderful dead-pan line: "apparently, i'm very funny."

there's my jack memorial.
I thought Jack might die, but then I thought JJ might go for a *really* happy ending. Of course the Rambaldi bath gave me hope that he was going to survive all this and surprise Sydney, but no such luck. At least he got a great death scene. Irina got the shaft or skylight in this case.
You beat death, but you couldn't beat me.

*sob* That was the only good part of the last half hour or so, really. Well, that and Dixon showing up at the end to entice Sydney back - because it's Dixon, not because I think she's a good spy or anything. *snerk*

On the one hand, I'm glad that Sark survived, and he at least had the rational good sense to realize that perhaps blowing up two major cities was not as good a business plan as it was laid out to be. I tend to prefer my evil to be more rational, and neither Irina nor Sloane were that at the end. On the other... Sark was kind of wishy-washy through the whole thing, wasn't he?

I pretty much fast-forwarded through the scenes that had only Rachel and/or Tom in them. I wasn't watching the finale for them.

And Irina was the Queen Bitch of the Universe all this time? I'm just surprised her final evil plan didn't involve sacrificing Isabelle on an alter.

*snort* Really. I just can't quite go there, you know? Partially, I suppose, it's my happy ending self wanting a happy ending for her and Jack, but partially? I would've thought that she was more rational than to blow up major cities. Or something. I totally didn't understand the plan at the end, although of course I didn't really expect to. Still, the non-logic of the plan (whatever is was) was even worse than I was anticipating.
I tend to prefer my evil to be more rational, and neither Irina nor Sloane were that at the end. On the other... Sark was kind of wishy-washy through the whole thing, wasn't he?

I get them desiring immortality on some level, but sacrificing your family to get it? Setting out to blow up two cities so you could swoop in to rebuild and become a multi-billionaire in the process? It just didn't feel right. And Sloane risked his own life to protect his wife at one point, yet can cause his daughter's death and just walk away.

As for Sark, yeah, he was a bit all over the place. I got that he was in it for the money, but when did he start being all about not shooting people unecessarily?
oh! and did you notice everyone suddenly had the ability to teleport? they're at APO, and SUDDENLY! they're in Mexico. then back at APO. A BLINK OF AN EYE: in Italy! and over the course of a commercial, at last in hong kong. and it takes half a freakin hour to send medical transport to jack? guh.

lame-o.

still, can i say i'll miss it? even though seasons 1 and 2 were the only good ones, i'm a teeny bit sad to see it go.
oh! and did you notice everyone suddenly had the ability to teleport?

I caught that too. When Jack said he was sending a team to rescue Marshall and Rachael I thought he meant getting agents already in Mexico to their location. No, they round up everyone in APO to fly down there when the rescuees should have been dead by the time they arrived! And would you send all the agents in the know on this in? What if their plane crashed?

and it takes half a freakin hour to send medical transport to jack? guh.

Yeah, let's not go there.
I don't even know what to say about this finale. I knew beforehand that it couldn't all end up nice and neat because the show had been written so strangely the last seasons that it was impossible for everything to be tied up in any sensible way. Still, I suppose I had some hope. Vain though it was. In the end, the only thing I cared about and had any regret over was Jack's death. SpyDaddy was, in a word, awesome. If he had been the only one to survive and all the others had died I think I would have felt better about the whole thing. Sigh. RIP, Jack Bristow, RIP.
Jack's death was the only thing that resonated emotionally with me as well. Ok, and, yes, I was happy that Vaughn didn't die again. But the rest left me rather cold.
Damn great final moment.

Yes. I am broken over him dying, but you couldn't ask for a better way to go out.
I wonder if JJ realized that, in the end, Sydney's story took a back seat to Jack and Sloane?
