Question: I know you said at the end of last season not to worry, that Michael Vartan would be coming back for this last season of Alias. Imagine my surprise when I read in another publication that he may not be. Now, of course, I know that you, oh god of spoilers, are the only really reliable source out there, so tell me: Will we be Vaughn-less this season?

Answer: I stand by my story that Michael Vartan will be back on Alias this season. If you're asking me how many episodes he will appear in, that I cannot (and will not) reveal. Not even for all the money in the world. But just out of curiosity, how much you got?
