    1. Summary: Second Double

    Francie tells Sark that the CIA believes Will has been compromised.
    Irina, informed by Sark, refuses to allow Francie to kill Will but
    supports his set-up. Francie hypnotizes Will and burns the mark of the
    second double on his retina.

    Jack, suspecting Will of stealing footage of the Tuscany raid and of
    being the second double, has him arrested for espionage. Jack then shows
    Syd and Vaughn a digital recording found in Will's posession — it's of
    them fooling around in Syd's apartment. Later, Syd tells a frightened
    Will that his ocular scan shows an accumulation of proteins, convincing
    evidence that he's the double. Syd asks him in what room they kissed but
    Will can't remember the specifics because Francie has selectively erased
    his memories. Syd then blows her cover to Francie, believing Francie
    needs to be protected.

    . When Will's fingerprints are found on the detonator that killed Diane,
    Dixon pays him a visit in the CIA holding cell. Will cannot convince
    Dixon of his identity and Dixon nearly chokes him to death. Will is soon
    trasferred to a prison camp on orders from the Department of Justice.
    Sark tells Francie that she'll have to kill Will in order to maintain
    her cover. Jack confronts Kendall, who went behind his back to the DOJ
    to secure Will's transfer.

    The CIA has located Dr. Hans Jurgen, the creator of the Project Helix
    equipment, and believes he may know the identity of the second double.
    In a Berlin sex club, Sydney, clad as a dominatrix, ties Jurgens up
    while Vaughn takes pictures. Under threat of blackmail, Jurgens swears
    he doesn't know the double's identity but says the DNA data is stored on
    a European server farm.

    Will's convoy is attacked. As Dixon fights off the attackers, Will
    escapes. He desperately calls Syd, who wants to help. Will, however,
    says he can't trust her, that she's destroyed his life and he wishes
    they never met. Syd is still determined to help and mentions the server
    farm. Will says his research showed that Markovic owned land in
    Marseilles, and that might be the server location.

    Irina, speaking to a contact, asks for the blueprints to a government
    storage facility. She then mentions to Sark that NSA security is based
    on a keycard. Sark admits he authorized the assault on Will and that
    Will is now at large. He suggests that if they get to Marseilles first,
    they could exchange the real double's DNA, which would prove Will's
    innocence, for the NSA keycard.

    Jack determines Will's fingerprints were placed on the detonator after
    it was wiped. He arranges for Syd to go to Marseilles behind Kendall's
    back, knowing that he'll lose his his managerial position and be
    replaced by Kendall. Sloane unexpectedly confronts Jack at a restaurant.
    He says he forgives Jack for his SD-6 betrayal, to which Jack replies
    that their friendship ended when he recruited Syd. Sloane admits that
    was a mistake and asks Jack to partner with him in the next phase of the
    Rambaldi quest — and promises that Syd won't be involved. Jack declines.
    Sloane, undeterred, says they will work together again.

    In the Marseilles facility, Syd's objective is to secure a killswitch
    worn by the security chief and prevent the deletion of data. Vaughn
    poses as a drunk, allowing Syd to breach security. She finds that Irina
    has already killed the guard and possesses the killswitch. Irina tazers
    Syd and destroys the data. She's copied and transferred it to a secure
    location, however, and will give it to Syd in return for a favor.

    Will, believing he can trust only Francie, calls her. She picks him up
    and they drive off.

    2. Summary: The Telling

    At the CIA, a depressed Sydney confers with Vaughn. Marshall begins
    receiving top-secret info — Irina is uploading the double's DNA, as she
    said she would. Syd then tells Will that he's been cleared because the
    downloaded DNA doesn't match his, it's from one H.E. Doren.

    While Syd is unwinding at an ice rink, Irina shows up to call in her
    favor. Syd attacks but Irina throws her down and reveals the whole of
    her plan. Sloane had 23 Rambaldi artifacts, she says, and the CIA had
    24. They had to be put together in order to work so she proposed to
    Sloane that they work together to defeat The Alliance and raid the CIAs
    storage facility, which is in an NSA lab in Nevada. Her favor — she
    simply wants Syd to raid a warehouse in Zurich where Sloane hides the
    Rambaldi artifacts.

    Sark and Francie meet, and he calls her Allison. He says they can't
    reverse the doubling process because Markovic's lab has been destroyed.
    Sark says they'll get her back and they kiss.

    Will investigates and finds the name Allison Georgia Doren on a list of
    children involved in Project Christmas. She was supposed to have died in
    a car accident as a child. Will calls Doren's parents and finds that her
    body was never identified.

    In Zurich, Syd and a team raid the warehouse. Rather than Rambaldi
    artifacts, they find kitchen appliances stuffed in crates.

    While transporting the Di Regno heart, Jack is attacked and captured by
    Sloane, who reveals that in 24 hours the final Rambaldi machine, called
    "The Telling," will be complete. He speaks almost mystically, referring
    to a "change." Jack, venomous, pities the void in Sloane's life. For his
    part, Sloane says they're still friends.

    Irina calls Syd and says Sloane switched the crates. She doesn't know
    where he is but Sark, hiding in a Stockholm club, does. Although Syd
    doesn't trust her, she and Vaughn go and do, indeed, find Sark. Weasel
    that he is, Sark quickly offers up Sloane, saying that he and Jack are
    in Mexico City. Later, from a CIA prison cell, he directs them to
    Sloane's hideout.

    The CIA team storms an office building and engages in a gunbattle. Dixon
    finds Jack. Irina appears, and while she seems to be on Sydney's side,
    Syd runs after her while Vaughn goes after Sloane. Syd confronts her on
    the skyscraper's rooftop and threatens to kill her. Irina says that
    Sloane believes he's been chosen to realize the word of Rambaldi. Only
    Syd can stop him, Irina says, because she — not Sloane — is the chosen
    one of the prophecy. "I love you," Irina says, and jumps. Holding on to
    a bungee cord, she shoots out windows and swings back into the building
    to escape.

    At home, Will finds Provacillium — the medicine needed to counteract the
    buildup of proteins in the double's eyes — at nearly the same time that
    Francie sees Will's file on Allison Doren. Having finally discovered the
    truth, Will makes a quick phone call to Syd and leaves a voicemail
    identifying Francie as the second double. It's too late, though. Francie
    attacks Will and she stabs him. He crumples to the floor.

    Later, Syd comes home and retrieves her messages while relaxing in the
    den with Francie. Keeping a poker face, Syd offers Francie a scoop of
    coffee ice cream. Francie accepts, and Syd knows — the real Francie
    hated coffee ice cream. Syd goes to her bedroom to get her gun but
    Francie confronts her before she can. They engage in a no-holds-barred
    brawl. After much carnage, Syd finally shoots Francie and collapses from

    Syd wakes in Hong Kong wearing different clothes and appearing confused
    and worried. She calls Kendall, who directs her to a safe house. She
    arrives there and notices a scar on her stomach. Vaughn arrives and
    appears out of sorts. He says Will is okay. He's shaken, he says,
    because he thought she was dead. He's come back to explain. Sydney
    notices that he's wearing a wedding ring. Reluctantly he tells her that
    she's been missing for almost two years.
