Alias 3.2 'Succession'

The award for best damn line goes to:

"Personally, I would have found it anticlimactic that after expecting to assemble a weapon of ultimate power, you ended up with a revelation you could have acquired from a fortune cookie."

Hee Hee. Who knew Jack could be so funny? And speaking of Jack, seems Syd's parents got over their past differences and did quite a bit of bonding during her absence. If I hadn't already been on the floor, I think I would have been there with the "I Miss You/I Miss You Too".

I'll be very interested to see what direction they go with Sark this season. His storyline seems like it will be very long and involved. (He was shocked by his inheritance, did he even know who is Dad was?) He appeared less cold and distant than he has in the past. In his own way, he seemed to be reaching out to Syd. Is it just me, or did anyone else sense that he was genuinly shocked and relieved to see Syd alive? And the laugh? Sark laughing is a wonderful thing. :)

OK, I am pulling for the eventual reunion between Syd and Vaughn, but, in the interim, I wouldn't be against some Syd/Sark action. They have a nice chemistry together. And so what if she killed his Dad? Her mom killed Vaughn's Dad and they got over it. :p

I know it's a cliche by now, but I'm hoping for some Sark redemption. Or at least some backstory on why he became what he became. I've just never sensed he was devoted to his profession nor that his heart was completely in it.

I discussed last week that I felt Syd ripping into Vaughn was out of line. In large part because she seemed to forget it only took her roughly a year to get over Danny. It was also completely unreasonable to tell him he should have just known she was still alive. What, he should just ignore the body and the DNA evidence and hold out for your miraculous return?

To her credit, she seemed to relize she had been out of line. Vaughn being allowed to share with her what he went through not only reinforced that but maybe made her feel a bit more comfortable with what had happened it seemed.

I don't know about everyone else, but I certainly forgave him. Not only did it take time to get over her, had he not, it would have apparently destroyed him. It's hard to stay mad at a guy who was succumbing to alcohol and voices in his head. :( (Hmm, and interesting that both Jack and Vaughn hit the bottle to cope with losing the women in their lives. It's unfortunate that these two didn't talk more in Syd's absence, Jack may be more accepting of his return now.)

Have to hand it to Lindsey, he may have left but not before screwing Syd over. It's hardly a coincedence that his replacement happens to be Vaughn's wife. And while I could have done without the cliche of Syd spilling her guts in front of the Mrs, I loved the "Hi". Again, is it just me, or did that moment feel like something we would have seen on Buffy?

    I seem to be having limited success in posting more often. At least this time I have legitimate excuses! Two hellish weeks at work. Then, this past…

    OK, this isn't nearly as long an absence as last time! My intention was to post sooner, but I've been doing quite a bit of cleaning/organizing lately…
