    Next Episode: The Solution
    ----------------------------------------
    In order to catch Khasinau and get closer to finding her mother, Sydney
    and Vaughn set up an undercover transaction for a Rambaldi artifact with
    Khasinau's representative, Mr. Sark. But Sydney's cover may be
    compromised when a SD-6 agent is sent in to thwart the sale.

    Meanwhile, Will is enticed to continue his investigation of SD-6 when he
    learns the identity of one of his kidnappers...and Sloane is forced to
    make the most difficult decision of his life when his terminally ill
    wife, Emily (Amy Irving, "Traffic," "Yentl"), tells Sydney that she
    knows about SD-6...
    ----------------------------------------
    Previous Episode: The Solution (copyright ABC)
    ----------------------------------------
    In the safehouse in the Arkhangelsk forest, Sydney sleeps against Noah's
    body...their bliss interrupted when Khasinau's soldiers storm the house.
    Escaping through a secret crawlspace below the floorboards, they get
    away on a motorcycle -- seconds before the cabin is riddled with
    bullets.

    Meanwhile, Vaughn confirms that K-Directorate has hired a known assassin
    -- a.k.a. "The Snowman," for his favored use of an ice-pick as a weapon
    -- to take out Khasinau. He suggests that by following the hit man, they
    can find Khasinau.

    When Sydney returns to SD-6, Noah makes her an interesting proposition.
    While working undercover, he opened some secret bank accounts and now
    wants to run away, leaving the spy world behind...and he wants her to
    come with him. She refuses, insisting that she must find her mother
    first. But Sloane has uncovered Noah's questionable banking practices
    and wonders if the agent is still loyal...
    Jack is visibly upset; he tells his daughter that the information on the
    data-core is useless for tracking down Khasinau. However, it does
    contain video files of Laura Bristow...video recorded after her car
    crash, and supposed death.

    Sydney watches the grainy video, and learns the unpleasant truth about
    her mother. Laura Bristow -- using her real name "Irina Derevko" --
    answers questions from Khasinau and another man. Derevko states how she
    came to America for the purpose of seducing Jack Bristow. During their
    years of marriage, she had gone through his briefcase and monitored his
    conversations, reporting everything back to the KGB.

    The other man on the tape, Igor Valenko, looks familiar, so Sydney
    investigates. She discovers that this man once worked undercover at the
    FBI under an alias..."Calder." She concludes that he was the agent who
    was, allegedly, chasing Laura Bristow before her fateful crash, and that
    he also must have faked his own death.

    Sydney uncovers that Valenko currently does business with a bank in Cape
    Town, South Africa, and she speculates that he might still be connected
    to Khasinau. Using her input, Jack outlines a mission to Sloane -- to
    send Noah and Sydney to Cape Town to recover bank records to create a
    trail. Sloane is reluctant -- he no longer trusts Noah, and expresses
    concerns about Jack defending yet another male figure in Sydney's life
    -- but ultimately, he agrees.

    Following a separate path to Khasinau, Vaughn travels to Bogota to meet
    with a man who once worked with The Snowman. This agent -- scarred and
    disfigured from an encounter with the assassin -- had formerly declined
    to help the CIA, but time has changed his mind, and he now offers to
    help...

    With a mixture of curiosity and dread, Jack finally summons the courage
    to watch the recovered video of his wife. Although he already knows the
    truth, he is crushed to see her treachery in such light...

    Using Marshall's ingenious op-tech, Noah and Sydney break into the South
    African warehouse and successfully hack into the computer using a
    wireless modem. They download all the files onto a laptop, but a
    sophisticated security system thwarts their mission...When they return
    home, they learn that the hard drive's memory was wiped as they escaped.

    One evening, Will and Francie finally confront Sydney about the
    mysterious, unexplained plane ticket to Italy. Under pressure, she
    confides that the bank has been doing business with extremely private
    and sensitive clients as of late...and this is why she must keep secrets
    from her own friends.

    Just when Sydney is beginning to trust Noah again, she is surprised to
    learn that he has accepted another deep cover assignment. Before he
    departs, he again pleads with her to run away with him. She finds the
    offer quite attractive...ultimately, she must decline, once again...

    After further tinkering, Marshall is finally able to recover low-level
    sector information from the reformatted drive. According to the records,
    Valenko is in Mackay, Australia. Dixon and Sydney are immediately
    dispatched to capture him, hoping that this will bring them one step
    closer to Khasinau.

    Vaughn receives a call from the source in Bogota. The Snowman has been
    spotted in Mackay, Australia, and he desperately wants to alert Sydney,
    to warn her, but he has no way to contact her.

    When Sydney enters Valenko's mansion, she finds no bodyguards...and a
    trail of dead bodies. She stumbles into the kitchen and finds The
    Snowman standing over a fresh corpse -- and she fights the assassin in a
    brutal bout of hand-to-hand combat. During the melee, she impales The
    Snowman onto his own ice-pick, and he lies bleeding on the floor. She
    pulls back the mask and discovers his true identity... Noah... who
    mumbles a sad good-bye to her as he dies...

    Then The Morning Comes

    By Elise Koerner

    She didn’t know what exactly had happened last night, her memories were
    vague and she couldn’t be sure if what she did envision had truly
    occurred. It was three in the morning now; she had been up for hours.
    Sitting on the cold tiled floor of her bathroom was not something that
    she ordinarily did, but then again, what happened last night was far
    from ordinary.

    The few things she knew for sure weren’t good. There she was in a
    meeting with Vaughn. Sitting on those black crates and sipping the tepid
    coffee that they both used to avoid the mounting tension between them.
    She had just stupidly told him she cared, she had placed her hand over
    his and he hadn’t moved away. She didn’t know what possessed her to kiss
    him, but whatever it was, it could easily be blamed on the moment. It
    was the first moment since Danny’s death that gave her a reason to live.
    Will and Francie were good friends but she had a deep suspicion that
    they couldn’t fulfill all of her emotional needs.

    Maybe Michael Vaughn could. G-d, she loved his name. She loved the way
    that it rolled off of her tongue when she said it into the mirror, all
    those long hours that she spent thinking about him led up to this
    seemingly perfect moment. There he was, looking at her with his deep
    eyes, his eyes had been trying to tell her something, but she was
    obviously unclear of what they were saying. As she had leaned in to kiss
    him, he pulled away. He didn’t say a word, but she knew he had lost all
    respect for her. He, out of no where, retorted, “This is neither the
    time nor the place”

    Why were those words so cold? Why did they sting so much? Why did she
    care? She had turned her head away, tried to feign a smooth cool
    attitude, much like the one she exuded SD-6. She never acted together in
    front of Vaughn. She was always angry at him or so in love with him that
    she couldn’t see straight, and a lot of the time it was both…
