:light: THE UNFOLDING (This is not a spoiler but to anyone who believes in foresight, pls. remember that you heard this first from Jason Bourne.) These things I’m going to say may not happen this season 2. "Truth" is gonna take a lot more time than an episode to be told! I don't think Irina can tell Syd everything down to the littlest detail...but here's my theory.... 1.Irina, when she was still working for KGB as Jack's wife, accidentally discovers Sloane's obsession with Rambaldi and was convinced that the prophecy was true. 2.And, the prophecy was not really about her, but about her daughter, Sydney. (I foretell that Sydney will lose a loved one very close to her heart and this would make her use the Rambaldi artifacts to avenge his/her death. If you really think about how the prophesy was phrased, it ominously insinuates that the ONE would release cataclysmic powers, whatever that is, because she will be filled with wrath or thirsting for revenge and seeing Mt. Whatsitsname doesn't disqualify Sydney). 3. Knowing this, Irina left Jack and Sydney to find a way to know more about everything about Rambaldi and outwit Sloane from baiting Sydney and stop apocalypse from happening. And that is why she is so obsessed about getting all the artifacts…to protect Sydney. You think Sydney would believe her mother if she told her this? No! Hence, truth takes time!!!
