Its actually 1 whole episode, they might split it up into 2 when the show goes into syndication, but its all one story.
Rated TV-14-LVS

Any guesses about the big surprise? I think that Vaughn is going to be revealed to be in cohorts with Sloane...

My wife's guess is that Irina will reveal to Sydney that Sloane is her real father.

They just think they've been working for the CIA. It's really SPECTRE. Or KAOS. On the bright side, next year they all get new offices again.

I think it will be revealed that Sydney is in her own little fantasy world as a result of being all doped up in the pilot and has been vegetating ever since.

It has been speculated for quite a while about Sark and Sidney being siblings, or that Sloane is Sidney's father, so it is going to be interesting to see if either turns out to be true (and revealed tonight)...

I think Sloane will discover that Rambaldi was his ancestor and that he is fulfilling his destiny. And he will change his name from "Arvin Sloane" to "Arvin Rambaldi"!!!

Here is the plot according to tvguide.com

The spy drama ends its second season with a two-hour tale of lives---and loyalties---in jeopardy.

Framed by the machinations of Francie's evil double, Will becomes a hunted man after the CIA targets him as a traitor. Syd is the only one who can prove otherwise, but Will's situation goes from bad to worse when Vaughn uncovers evidence that makes Miss Bristow doubt her fugitive friend's innocence. Meanwhile, Jack comes face-to-face with a “new” Sloane, who makes his old ally an unsettling offer; and Irina (Lena Olin) lures her daughter into a secret meeting that could lead to a major revelation...or an execution. Carrie: Amanda Foreman. (

If we have to go all summer wondering "who shot Sydney" or some such nonsense I'll be pissed.

Spoiler:
I think the Rambaldi (sp?) device made her disappear for those 2 years


On a side note: The fight scene with Syd and robo Francie was terrible. It just seems so slow.

Actually, that is not so bad an idea.

Spoiler:

Irina said that Sydney and Sloane were the two main players when it came to the prophecy. Well, I think Sloane used the Rambaldi "The Telling" device on Sydney, and somehow she got thrown ahead 2 years somehow.

THAT SO ISN'T FAIR!!!!! People can say what they want but there's no way anyone saw that coming

Spoiler:
I thought for sure Will was going to bite the big one but apparently he's still breathing. The ending was a perfect set up for next season - you have to spend a great deal of time figuring out what's happened the last two years and what happened to Sydney during that time. My question is, how did Sloan extract Sydney? Francie was dead and it didn't seem like she had enough time to get a call into Sloan. Ugh!

Weird episode, but I have two major problems:

Spoiler:
If you were a secret double-ganger or whatever, would you keep the medicine that could prove you were an imposter in a correctly labelled medicine bottle, in plain sight? Also, I don't care what kind of agent Fake Francie is, there is no way that she could physically over power Will. He's got to be a good 50 lbs heavier than her and in a contest of strength, he would win, hands down.


Other than that, I'm at a complete loss as to how I feel about the finale...
