"Alias": Coming Back From the Dead
So I had absolutely no idea who anyone was or what they were doing, but it was nice to see “Alias” back on the air (However, a lenghtier “previously on,” like they did for “Invasion,” would have been nice.).
I loved that we were supposed to believe Sloane is a good guy because he was wearing those cute glasses. Jennifer Garner was fantastic during her labor scenes. And how could you not love watching Jack Bristow (Victor Garber) go all Jack Bauer on the mole from the CIA?
But the biggest moment of last night’s two-hour episode occurred in the last two minutes.
In the season premiere, after Vaughn’s funeral service, Sydney gave a look to her father that made me think there was more to the story than met the eye. Now, we know that’s the case as it was revealed that Vaughn is alive and in hiding and Jack and Sydney have known it all along.
Even though we only got about 20 seconds, the sight of Michael Vartan had to give “Alias” fans hope for a happy ending for their favorite spy.
Maybe she’ll get that walk on the beach after all…
