Asta 2

The Nick & Jessica Variety Hour.....Just Kidding ;)


The Trust. Oh, terrific, we have *another* super secret organization. Geesh. No wonder no one has succeeded in taking over the world. They are too damn busy forming committees!

writteninstars and I disagree on Goth!Vaughn. She thinks he looked hot. I think she's insane. :p Too much eyeliner and too many piercings for my simple tastes. :)

Speaking of Vaughn, I'm glad he *finally* figured out (the husband apparently is always the last to know) what Lauren has been up too. But, I wish he had done so before ripping Jack a new one. Someone is going to be eating crow...

I thought it was very odd that Vaughn and Lauren seemed to just forget about the fact that he announced he was leaving her a couple weeks ago. I understand not wanting to walk out immediately after hearing of her father's death, but pretending like everything is peachy with a side of keen???

Memo to Marshall, if you want to be taken seriously in the hacker underground, get a better alias. :p

Did anyone else recognize Cyrus from Space: Above and Beyond? Did anyone but me watch that show?

Best Jen moment of the night: Her 'Oh, Puh-leeze' look behind Vaughn's back at Lauren's sudden appearance in Germany. :)

So, are Sark and Lauren head of The Covenant now? It was sweet in a psychotic sort of way how Sark looked out for his girlfriend.

Between pre-emptions, repeats, and the fact the writers keep throwing another twist at us, I'm very confused in regards to the main plot. Peace = Irina. Syd's The Passenger, no, now it might be Irina. But, Syd is to destroy The Passenger. Is The Passenger is a good thing or a bad thing? And what of the original Rambaldi text, the drawing of Syd, and the prophecy of her bringing about some sort of apocalypse? If she kills The Passenger is she fulfilling Rambaldi's prophecy yet destroying what Rambaldi strove to create? OK, my head hurts....
  • Current Mood: confused confused
There was a new Alias on tonite?? Nooo!! :( But, I turned it on and it was Jewel singing?!
Yes, there was a new episode last night, but at 10:00. The Nick & Jessica Variety Hour ran at 9:00. The big development was that Vaughn finally learned the truth about Lauren and that was in the final 30 seconds of the ep.
Dammit...I haven't missed an Alias ep since like the first season!! :( Grar. Now next week I'll be all clueless. I was even rereading my Alias Declassified book last night cuz I was in an Alias mood!

So, Vaughn knows...woo-hoo! About frickin time! ;)
The prophesy says something like: "she will bring the greatest power unto utter desolation". So I guess that means that the Passenger is the greatest power...? Something like that. ; )
Well, if The Passenger can be used as some sort of bio weapon to wipe out the population, yeah, I'd say that's some great power. ;)
Sorry babe, but I'm siding with Crystal on this one... I also thought Vaughn in the eyeliner was UberHot!

Mmm eyeliner....

And since I missed most of season two, I have NO clue about the prophesies... especially how to spell the stupid word.
He just doesn't have the face for it. Or maybe the personality? I usually have a strange affection for gothed out guys (considering I can't even wear eyeliner myself) but he just looked too much like he was pretending.
he just looked too much like he was pretending.

Yeah, I think you have it there. He just didn't seem very comfortable in that persona and I think personality has a lot to do with it. But, to be fair, that is a hard look to pull off. I say we put him back in the tweed and glasses. He does the cute geek bit very well. :)
he just looked too much like he was pretending.

Yup. And downright uncomfy with the Goth tude. Lauren, on the other hand, looked great all tricked out in Goth, I thought.

Interesting how often Hollywood blondes look better as brunettes. But they just can't resist the lure of the bleach bottle.

Sarah is an exception. She looks great in her honey blonditude, I think.
I'm with you, hon, on Goth!Vaughn. I like piercings and eyeliner personally, just not on Vaughn. It didn't fit him. He's too straight for it(and i don't mean his sexuality).
Reading here and on other LJ's I think opinions are pretty evenly divided on this important subject. I just say we're right and they're wrong. ;)
No wonder no one has succeeded in taking over the world. They are too damn busy forming committees!

Bwahahah:)

Yeah, I'm pretty confused about the plot, too. But I can take it - I'm a veteran of Buffy Season 7. (And I say that in the nicest possible way - I mostly liked Season 7.) Anyway, with Alias, I'm just here for the pretty. And Spy Barbie kicked some bad guy ass, so that's all good.

So, are Sark and Lauren head of The Covenant now? It was sweet in a psychotic sort of way how Sark looked out for his girlfriend.

Hmm, I guess so. I don't remember if Guy Who Looked Good In Wetsuit reported to some higher bosses. And yeah, the evil!spy!lurve! was all good.
I think this season of Alias is like the final season of Buffy in that it lacks focus and direction. That's not to say I've soured on the show at all (I was a fan of many parts of season 7 of Buffy too). I'm still convinced that by the end of the season they will bring it all together....and leave us with another jawdropping cliffhanger....bastards...
Apparently there was chat. I was under the impression that there would be no chat. My bad.

writteninstars and I disagree on Goth!Vaughn.

I have to side with you on the GothVaughn issue. I just didn't feel it and got the impression he didn't either. Not that I minded the leather. :p The eyeliner didn't work for me though. Crystal, however, is an eyeliner slut so I can see why she dug it. ;)

Speaking of Vaughn, I'm glad he *finally* figured out (the husband apparently is always the last to know) what Lauren has been up too. But, I wish he had done so before ripping Jack a new one.

Thank goodness he finally got a clue. I was afraid we were going to have to send him a copy of "Espionage for Dummies." And although he was being dense when he told Jack off I liked the chutzpah he showed in that scene. He was, IMHO, much hotter there than in the goth scene.

Best Jen moment of the night: Her 'Oh, Puh-leeze' look behind Vaughn's back at Lauren's sudden appearance in Germany. :)

How she kept from smacking Lauren is beyond me. She obviously has some serious self-control. This was also yet another moment in which I wanted to kick Vaughn's ass for falling for Lauren's crap. Someone should have pushed her off those white cliffs of Dover.

So, are Sark and Lauren head of The Covenant now?

Who the hell knows. Was Bomani(?) the man in charge? I am confused. And did Sark save Lauren because he likes her or because he can use her and have her in his debt while assuming power? Or maybe all of the above.

As far as the whole Passenger thing, I'm as lost as you. Although I was thinking maybe the sister will be the Passenger. Who knows? The Rambaldi mystery grows more complex by the episode.

And finally, I have to say when Jack was going through the prison bars after learning Sloane had an affair with Irina, I was a little scared for Arvin. I would not have wanted to be him right then.
Apparently there was chat. I was under the impression that there would be no chat. My bad.

OK, Crystal has some splainin' to do. I got her e-mail saying she couldn't make it to chat. But, I was going to go online hoping you would still show. Then I get another e-mail saying she would be available and when I start chatting with her she informs me you were too tired to chat and went to bed. Hmph. Something is rotten in the state of Tennessee....

Thank goodness he finally got a clue. I was afraid we were going to have to send him a copy of "Espionage for Dummies."

BUWAHAHAHAHA!!!! Actually, I think that's what they now call the CIA handbook. :p

And although he was being dense when he told Jack off I liked the chutzpah he showed in that scene. He was, IMHO, much hotter there than in the goth scene.

I have to agree. Not only much hotter ;), but as I read on someone else's LJ we haven't seen him show that kind of backbone in a very long time. It was nice to see. Too bad he picked the wrong argument to show it. :p

Who the hell knows. Was Bomani(?) the man in charge? I am confused. And did Sark save Lauren because he likes her or because he can use her and have her in his debt while assuming power? Or maybe all of the above.

I thought Bomani was the man in charge, but, with Alias, you never know. After all, the identity of 'The Man' has changed at least three times. So, it could very well be someone else in charge of The Covenant.

And I think Sark saved Lauren for both reasons you mentioned. I think he would kill her if it meant his life or hers, yet, as long as he can keep her around, he wants to. He does seem to care for her in his own unique way. The twist may be we discover it really is Vaughn she cares about. ::shudders::

As far as the whole Passenger thing, I'm as lost as you. Although I was thinking maybe the sister will be the Passenger. Who knows?

I'm leaning that way myself. Syd's all but been eliminated and Irina seems too obvious at this point.
we haven't seen him show that kind of backbone in a very long time.

I know! I'm hoping as he uncovers what Lauren's been up to, we see more of it.

with Alias, you never know

I think you've summed up everything with that comment. ;)
