    The Other Side

    “Come on.” Nadia grabbed Jack’s arm and started pulling him toward the door at the end of a hallway that had suddenly appeared in front of them. They were in a hospital, Jack realized. A group of five people stood in front of the door – Sydney, Vaughn, Marshall, and Dixon, plus a woman doctor...

    The Other Side

    “Thank you.” Jack hung up the phone and turned to Elizabeth. “Are you ready? A car will be here in twenty minutes to take you to the airport.” “I’m ready.” Elizabeth was gazing out the hotel room window, which afforded an excellent view of the Vatican. “Jack, come over here and look at this...

    The Other Side

    “This is felgercarb and you know it.” Arvin Sloane glared at the two FBI agents, Henderson and Springsteen, seated across the large table in the conference room from him. Jack sat rigid and silent beside him. “Nevertheless, we are taking him into custody,” Springsteen said. “Mr. Bristow, you are...

    The Other Side

    Joseph Bristow brushed a bit of lint off his son’s tuxedo coat and straightened his tie. “There. I guess that will have to do.” He backed up a step, his hands on Jack’s shoulders, and smiled. “Do you have any idea how proud I am of you?” Jack gave a nervous little laugh. “Thanks. I’m not sure...

    The Other Side

    That night, as Jack was lying in bed, he heard his parents’ voices coming from their room. Assuming that he was asleep, they had neglected to close their door. “Are you really so sure we should be encouraging this, Joseph?” his mother was asking. “Ellen, it’s either this, or sooner or later...

    Has Jack changed over the seasons?

    He's changed some -- in ways I find very appealing -- but fundamentally he's still the Jack I fell in love with in the pilot episode. :) I miss him terribly. :jack1:

    A Star With No Name

    *author's note* This fic is based in information I found at the CIA's official website, and is dedicated to the one and only Spy Daddy, Jack Bristow. He will live forever in our hearts. A STAR WITH NO NAME At Central Intelligence Agency Headquarters in Langley, Virginia, on the north wall of...

    The Other Side

    *author's note* Jack's part in the series finale, my way! :D *Author's note* The series finale, my way! THE OTHER SIDE “Nadia, no!’ Don’t leave me!” Nadia gave her father a sad smile. “There is nothing I can do for you. I can, however, help another.” She turned her back and disappeared...

    Season 5 React: The Horizon

    I understand that people were just thrilled to have Vaughn back. That's fine. But I view what was done to Sydney as torture, and her own mother was just sitting there watching it. Not only that, she arranged it. Now what mother worthy of the name does that? You don't hurt your child just to...

    Season 5 React: The Horizon

    We just see things differently. I love Jack, and I like most of the other characters, but I don't really care all that much about Syd and Vaugh's relationship. I like other aspects of the show. Different people are offended by different things on TV, and I don't like torture scenes. And since...

    Season 5 React: The Horizon

    I mostly enjoy "Alias," but I do not like torture scenes, and this was especially bad. I think what you are saying is that they were merely using torture as a plot device to get into Sydney's head. That is true. But I wish they would have come up with another way that would not have been so...

    Season 5 React: The Horizon

    Irina was endangering both Sydney and her unborn child. There is no excuse for it. You just don't write a scenario like that and expect that some viewers won't be offended. I was one of them.

    Season 5 React: The Horizon

    I thought "Horizon" was just sick and disgusting. I realize that I am in the minority here, but did it not bother anyone that we're supposed to consider watching a pregnant woman being kidnapped, drugged, and tortured -- by her own mother, no less -- to be entertaining? I was absolutely...

    Season 5 Horizon spoilers

    Anybody else notice that these writers apparently have no problem with harming a pregnant woman and her child and calling it entertainment? <_< Kidnapping a pregnant woman and drugging her could easily kill the baby. Some things ought to be off-limits, even on a TV show as divorced from...

    Grandpa Jack

    The thing that really irritates me about this pregnancy is that it almost doesn't seem real to the writers, despite the fact that the actress is actually pregnant. They have Syd doing things that are completely ridiculous for a pregnant woman, and she doesn't really seem to worry about the...
