Jack cut off Desantis' ear and then let Renee Reinne kill him! That's the kind of fatherly and grandfatherly protection you definitely want to have if you are eight-months pregnant. The look on Jack's face when he saw the nursery that his ex had carefully crafted was just priceless. I think when he finds out that Syd's mom is the one who took his daughter and had her tortured in a supposedly "safe for baby" procedure that hacked into her memory, things are going to get really ugly. I'd love a showdown between Mama and Papa Bristow  the chemistry between

Lena Olin and

Victor Garber is insanely intense and fabulous. Here's hoping that plays out well. Gotta love that Syd was able to fight through the pain and confusion to give her captors false info about Horizon, which isn't just related to Prophet 5 but also SD-6. I'm so confused. Let me guess: The Horizon is really a Rambaldi device and everything in this Alias world is tied together? And finally, how nice was it to see Michael Vartan as Vaughn again? Even though the whole thing was a fantasy, it was cute to see them flirting on the pier and living in domestic bliss and chopping broccoli. It makes me remember the good old days of this show. But while there was the big "shocker" (really, if you've been watching all these seasons, who else could have been behind that mirror?) of Mama Bristow returning and the way that Vaughn was worked in, this hour seriously lacked the spirit and spunk that last week's episode with Sark had. I was a little bit bothered by Syd's dialogue, "I want the world to forget about us." And while I understand the sentiment that harkens back to her original hope when she tried to dismantle SD-6, if this show doesn't liven up a little bit, I'm worried that the world will forget about it before the "final episodes" have finished airing.
