    I've just watched the Countdown episode, at 11:00AM EST, so several hours prior to tv air, and here's the scoop of what has happened for all the fans out there that can't wait to see the episode tonight :)

    Dixon starts out going postal at some guy. Dixon has set an explosive to go off and he's holding it on his hand and telling the guy that he has nothing to lose and asks the guy where's the box is. NSA deputy director jumps in and tell Vaughn to take Dixon down.
    All of a sudden we're brought to Los Angeles, 72 hours earlier.
    We can see that it's the memorial service for Dixon's wife. Vaughn sees Dixon taking some pills and comment that with Sydney when they get home.
    Sark and Sloane are talking. Sloane tells Sarks that he thought he would've had some kind of satisfaction in having had Dixon's wife killed, but he admits that he's killed the wrong person. Slone tells Sark that he's taking a leave and for Sark and Irena to continue without him, and that if he doesn't seem them again, he hopes that him and Irena succeed where he couldn't.
    Jack introduces the NSA deputy director the the agents at the briefing room, and the NSA deputy Director then thanks them for welcoming him and his associate, some women responsible for Especial Projects and you can see that Marshall kind of falls in love with her and gets all goofy. They've decrypted page 94 of the Rambaldi Manuscript, and they've come acoss apocaliptic dates. One of them yet to happen.
    Now the guy whose DNA was in Rambaldi's Manuscript gets killed.
    <Insert ALIAS opening credits here :P>
    We're not in Panama City. The guy whose heart was drawn by Rambaldi got mutilated and his heart taken out. Syd and Dixon are there.
    Vaughn is now telling Jack that Dixon be taken out of the field till he's been cleared out by the shrink, and Jack denies Vaughn's request.
    Marshall and the chick he digs are talking, discussing about Rambaldi and how they only got 36 hours to live if Rambaldi's predictment is right. And she asks Marshall is he's gay because all the cute guys she meets turn out to be gay (wtf is wrong this chick? She thinks Marshall is good looking? Oh for crying out loud... but anyways). And then she asks Marshall out. Vaughn calls the shrink even though Jack denied his request for psychological evaluation for Dixon.
    We're now in Guadalajara, where Sydney and Dixon go meet that assassin that killed the guy and taken his heart, they're posing as Triad representatives. Dixon tortures the guy in a rage (you can clearly see that Dixon is going postal) and the assassin tell him that the guy didn't have a heart, but a machine in its place and that he doesn't even know who Sloane is. Syd has to yell at Dixon for him to stop hitting the guy.
    Dixon is now with the shrink back at the CIA office. With the session over, Dixon goes to Syd and tells her that he's been ordered to do a drug test, and admits that he's been taking something that will get him suspended. And Syd goes talk to Vaughn about that.
    We're now taken to Nepal, where Sloane is about to go up some mountain alone since his guide tells him he won't go there because everyone that goes there "don't return the same".
    Now we're back in LA, and Vaughn is knocking on Syd's door and tells her that Dixon's drug test came out negative and she looked surprised though she kept a normal face, since she knows Dixon wouldn't have passed the drug test, so something's fishy.
    Sydney goes to Dixon's house to confront him about the test results and he admits to have switched the test results. She tells him that she was called in to talk to the shrink and he begs her not to tell her about the drug test stuff and she leaves.
    The shrink has now asked Syd if she should know of anything before she concludes her analizes of Dixon and Syd tells the shrink that Dixon is a strong minded person and that she trusts him with his life. Meanwhile Dixon has stopped his car at a bridge, gets out and is about the jump off the bridge.
    Now back at the CIA, Vaughn and Syd are talking and Syd asks about Dixon's whereabouts and Vaughn tells her that he's called him but no sign of him. They're all now being brief about the next assignment and when it's almost all over, Dixon comes in.
    Slone has now found the temple full of buddists (though that temple doesn't look like a buddist temple if you ask me). Sloane puts a gun at some guy's neck (the guy that did that Kung Fu tv show some long time ago.. forgot his name now). Apparently he was the one that sent Sloane on the Rambaldi search 30 years ago and tells Sloane to put down the guy and that he's got something to show Sloane.
    We're now taken to Cartagena, where Syd and Dixon infiltrate the docks. Dixon starts beating the hell out of some security person wanting to know the location of the device and that's the point where the show has started. The guy tells the location of the device, and the bomb on Dixon's hand reaches down to 0 seconds but didn't explode, and Dixon tells Sydney that he's cut the primary cord as he's not that desperate.
    Now Sloane and that creepy guy are talking. He tells Sloane that certain events had to had happened. Sloane asks the guy that if he knew his wife would'd died. And he says that things had to happen, including Sloane's wife death or else he couldn't have given him something, and then he hands over something.
    At the same time that some team has recovered the device that they thought it was a dooms day device, Sloane is reading through the manuscript that weird monk has giving him, making us conclude that the device that the CIA has isn't the apocaliptic event reported by Rambaldi, but trully that Sloane getting a hold of that manuscript is the doom of mankind.
    NSA deputy director says that Rambaldi was wrong about his apocaliptic event, though he has no idea how wrong he is. And Jack lets him know that his jurisdiction has ended and that he's getting control of the operation and CIA again.
    The weird monk tells Sloane that know he understands and that his jorney, Slone's, has just begun as Sloane is completely amazed by whatever it is that he's reading.
    Dixon is telling Syd that he's almost killed himself at the bridge. They cry, they hug.
    Vaughn and Sys are at a park, and Vaughn tells Syd that Dixon will be ok and that the fact he turned himself in will count in his favor (so I guess Dixon came clean about everything to the CIA). Syd tells Vaughn that he knew Dixon was postal, that he's altered the drug results tests and didn't tell him and says she's sorry. Vaughn looked a bit disappointed at first but then gives her some ice cream and he gets up and they walk away together hugging each other.
    <Insert ALIAS end credits here :P>

    Well, that was it people. Very nice episode, and most importantly, we know that now Sloane who didn't have any purpose anymore, and was all about getting even with Dixon, blind with hate, now knows his part in Rambaldi's prophecies and that in itself seems to be one huge apocaliptic event.

    Hope you all have enjoyed reading this and do NOT miss out this episode when it airs at night :)

    Uh? Have to wait till who dies?
    Noone important (main character and stuff) dies in this episode. Dixon thinks about killing himself but doesn't. That was pretty much the closest death there was. Well, that one plus when the NSA deputy director tells Vaughn to take Dixon down but Vaughn doesn't.
