Don't expect Sydney Bristow to be with child when Alias kicks off its fifth (and likely final) season next fall. Despite Jennifer Garner's rumored pregnancy, series creator J.J. Abrams hints that art will not imitate life for her dexterous alter ego. "If she is pregnant," Abrams says coyly, "I think what [we] would do is employ close-ups significantly more often than wide shots." And if that doesn't hide her bulge, I spy lots of big flower arrangements in Syd's future.
