    1: Summary of last night’s episode: “Passage (Part 1)”

    AllAlias.com Summary for Passage (Part 1):

    [please report any error or omissions you find by emailing
    char-@allalias.com ]

    Previously on Alias, Sloane goes to Jack about his killing his wife, and
    Sydney learns that Sark is now working for SD-6, although he may be a
    double agent for another agency.

    Sydney goes and meets with Sark. She warns him that if he burns her, she
    burns him.

    At SD-6, it’s debriefing time. Sloane goes over the mission – getting
    Uzbekistani communication codes. Sloane, Sydney, Dixon, Jack and Sark
    are there. Walking in late, Marshall mumbles “Hi. Welcome. Don’t kill
    me” to Sark.

    At the CIA Operations Center, Irina tells Sydney that she will give
    information if she gets 48 hours to free escorted by CIA personnel.
    Sydney reluctantly goes and sees Kendall, who refuses (in part because
    of Jack’s tricky psychology games).

    Back at SD-6, Sark talks to Sloane about SD-6 not really being with the
    CIA. He makes the smart (and for us, unfortunate) move of suggesting
    that Jack and his “parental instincts” might cause him to tell Sydney
    more information than she should know, and suggests that Sloane tell
    Jack little about the codes.

    UZBEKIST[A]N – Sydney and Dixon exchange money for Uzbekistan army
    communication codes. The man says that they will have to get fingerprint
    of an army officer before they can open the case. Disguised as a dead
    body, Sydney gains access to a secure morgue, quickly gets out of her
    body bag and looks around. She eventually finds the man she is looking
    for. However, a guard walks in. Sydney is able to hide, but the guard
    notices the missing body and radios back. The guard slowly opens a
    vault, only to find nothing inside. Another guard comes in, and when
    they open a larger vault, Sydney pushes a medical cart into them and a
    large fight begins, Sydney the victor. She escapes in the clothing of
    one of the guards and makes it to Dixon without a scar.

    LOS ANGE[L]ES – Vaughn informs will that Kendall doesn’t want Will
    working for the CIA anymore, as he sees it as a security risk. Will
    takes it well and says that those questions were administered on tests
    to millions of children. Vaughn agrees to tell Kendall.

    At Sydney’s and Francie’s place, Sydney has to miss another appointment
    with Francie – this time a day at a spa. They set a new date next week,
    but Francie says she will go tomorrow too.

    At the garage, Vaughn shows Sydney a watch that no longer works. He says
    that it used to keep perfect time, such that "you could set your heart
    to it." Going on he saya it stopped October 1st, the day he met Sydney.

    At the CIA, Vaughn and Sydney learn that the “army communication codes”
    are actually nuclear weapon codes. Irina and Sydney will go on a mission
    to retrieve the codes and/or the nukes. Jack then agrees to go on the
    mission, but goes to see Irinia, giving her a silver necklace that if
    take off, explodes, and can also be detonated from Jack’s watch.

    Will goes and sees Vaughn at a park. He knows he can’t be paid, but
    gives Vaughn the list of people who got 100% on the test – including the
    added in part that was for the undercover soviet project that he found
    in a study about the test and one’s race.

    N[E]W DELHI – the Spy Family is on a mission together. Their excuse?
    Family vacation. A clerk admires Irina’s necklace. They then board a
    train. While changing, Irina meets Jack face-to-face in their
    compartment. In the back of the train, Sydney finds a suitcase with a
    flashing light. Inside are parachutes. Jack and Irina bicker about who
    should go first. Sydney then tells them to shut up and jumps up.

    At SD-6, a staff member (probably from security section) brings Sloane a
    box that was sent to him (after scanning it). Inside is Emiy’s index
    finger, complete with her ring.

    Back with the spy family, they meet a CIA contact. When heading into
    enemy territory, they run in with an extremist group and are captured.
    With various exchange of eye movements, Irina (by looking down at her
    necklace) suggests her taking her necklace off and throwing it, the
    explosion allowing them to get free. Jack approves and sets the necklace
    to not blow up when Irina takes it off, which she does, and the entire
    family begins shooting and kicks butt, getting away free and walking off
    into the distance.

    2: Preview of next week’s episode: “Passage (Part 2)”

    While continuing on a mission to take control of six nuclear warheads,
    Sydney and Jack discover where Irina's loyalties lie when she meets up
    with Gerard Cuvee (Derek de Lint). Meanwhile, Sloane informs the
    Alliance that Emily may still be alive.

    Words to ABC Promo:

    Next Sunday. The family that spies together dies together, unless a
    father and daughter can stop a mother’s ultimate betrayal. Operation
    Ultimate Countdown.
