    1: Next Episode “Passage”
    Sunday, Dec. 1 at 9/8c
    "Passage — Part I"

    Sydney, Jack and Irina must put aside their differences and go
    undercover as a loving family in order to seize six nuclear warheads
    from an unfriendly nation. Meanwhile, Sloane announces to a suspicious
    staff that Mr. Sark will be working with SD-6; Vaughn may be forced to
    fire Will from his CIA research assignment; and Sloane is contacted by
    an unknown group claiming that Emily is still alive.

    2: Latest Episode Summary: “Counteragent”
    Vaughn wraps his bloody fingernails and heads to Irina's cell. She
    thanks him for proving Jack's involvement in Madagascar. Vaughn admits
    he's sick and asks Irina what Khasinau learned from experimenting on
    people exposed to the Red Ball. Irina asks if he loves Sydney, to which
    Vaughn replies that he'll tell her if she helps him.

    Will tells Sydney that the 1982 standardized test is missing from public
    record. Sydney then explains "Project Christmas" and says that Vaughn
    thinks Russian intelligence is still running it to recruit American

    At the CIA, Sydney, having learned that Vaughn is sick, asks Irina if
    there is an antidote. It's in Paldiski, Estonia, she says, at a former
    Soviet training base for nuclear submarine personnel. But the antidote
    is genetic-specific, meaning Sydney must manufacture it from Vaughn's
    blood. With Vaughn now in the hospital and expected to live only three
    days, Sydney draws his blood and they hold hands. On her way out, Sydney
    meets Alice, Vaughn's girlfriend.

    Sloane confesses to Jack that he's insecure about his standing within
    the Alliance and that he confessed the Emily issue to Kristof, whom he
    must now meet in Tokyo. He tortures Richter, desperately trying to find
    the location of Derevko's ops base.

    6: Articles
    Here are a select few Alias articles from around the web:

    This first one is spoilerish, so skip to the next article if you don’t
    want to read spoilers. All I can say is It’s about Weiss and if he is or
    is not coming back alive. It is archived here:

    The next one if from a list of five of TV’s biggest surprises this fall,
    as ranked by Entertainment Weekly. The fact that Alias isn’t a large hit
    comes in at #5. It is archived here:

    TechTV has an interesting article about the gadgets on Alias, which you
    can read here:

    Last (but not least) is a review of “Counteragent” by ScoopMe.com. Read
    it here: http://www.scoopme.com/tv/articles/default...rticle_id=81493

    7: Make it Better?

    I’m interested in hearing from some you (the over 700 subscribers to The
    Alias Newsletter) on what you think would make The Alias Newsletter
    better. As we continue to grow, I’m always working on ways to improve.
    For one thing, I’ve decided to try and always try to come out on
    Mondays. This is because I can give you information on the latest Alias
    episode. However, it’s sometimes hard for me to make this “deadline”
    because of school.

    Anyway, if you have any suggestions, please feel free to email me at
    char-@allalias.com . I always love hearing from other fans.
