Episode 2: Trust Me

10/06/2002

Under the charge of Asst. Director Kendall, Irina is led in shackles to a cell in a secret Operations Facility in LA. Jack conveys his doubts about her sincerity to Sydney, who herself wishes that her mother dies for all she's done. Sydney also tells Vaughn that she's convinced Sloane killed Emily.

In London, Sloane, now a full partner in the Alliance, is given a mysterious injection. Later, Sloane admits to Sydney that the Alliance knows Khasinau is dead and believes Irina to be in hiding. He sends Sydney to retrieve a computer disk containing compromising info that Irina used for blackmail purposes. The disk is in a safe in a Rabat hotel room occupied by one Mohammed Naj. For her countermission, she's to give the disk to Richard Schmidt, an undercover agent at the Rabat embassy, who will create a bogus copy for Sydney to return to SD-6. Or, Vaughn says, you could ask your mother for the disk's contents. She refuses.

Vaughn, under pressure from Kendall, speaks to the uncooperative Irina. She bends when Vaughn mentions Sydney's mission to Rabat, saying that Sydney must first pull a fire alarm before opening the safe. Is it the truth or a trick? Vaughn quickly contacts Sydney, who, dressed as an Italian traveller, is about to crack the safe. A suspcious Sydney refuses to pull the alarm but when she snatches the disk, an alarm sounds anyway. Syd escapes but can't transfer the disk to Schmidt.

Once back in LA, Sydney relents and agrees to see Irina, who says Sloane will use the info on the disk to bribe Peter Fortson, the creator of the T-Wave Satellite Camera, a super-sensitive spying device originally meant for use by the Pentagon. She asks for Sydney's trust. Sydney maintains her composure but breaks down after she exits.

Syd and Vaughn travel to Fortson's Helsinki lab to retrieve the camera before Sloane does. Dressed as a Eurobabe in a black wig, she narrowly avoids Sloane and steals the camera. Shortly thereafter, Sloane shoots Fortson in the leg when he discovers the camera is missing.

Back home, Will, who has been doing community service, offers to help Francie set up her restaurant.

Sydney goes to Irina again and lays down guidelines for their interaction in order to depersonalize their relationship. "You are not my mother," she says. Irina acquiesces.

Memorable Moments:

FRANCIE: Let me ask you a question. Let's say you're hanging out at your favorite restaurant, with your friends -- or whatever. You like to go there, you like the food, what color are the walls?
JACK: I'm... not really into interior decorating.

SYDNEY: Emily knew the truth. Her death, his immediately being let in, I'm confident he killed his wife to get that seat.
VAUGHN: Killing his wife wouldn't surprise me. Eating his wife wouldn't surprise me.

"Let's get something clear. You are not my mother... Laura Bristow died in a car accident twenty-one years ago. You are a traitor and a prisoner of the United States government... We will interact only when necessary. You will address me as "Agent Bristow" and answer only the questions I ask. There will be no personal anecdotes, no comments about my job performance, no condolences or congratulations. Do you understand me?" - Sydney, to Irina
