Season 3: Episode 1 - "The Two"
Sydney is where we last left her, in a Hong Kong safe house. Vaughn tells her she's been gone for two years. Will survived the apartment fire, he says, but she died and her remains were identified. Vaughn's now a teacher, but the CIA sent him to take her back. Syd attacks Vaughn and escapes the safe house. She fights two CIA agents standing guard and Vaughn finally brings her down with a dart.

She wakes in the Stafford Naval Hospital. Dixon is there; he's now director of their division. Weiss calls Dixon away — he says Agent Scott Kingsley has the chip and is on a train to Avignon. He says the Covenant is moving to intercept and get the chip. A lead has placed a Covenant outpost outside Paris. Dixon returns and reveals that Jack has been in solitary for a year, courtesy of NSC Senior Director Robert Lindsey.

On train in Lyon, France, a gunman shoots and kills Kingsley. He finds the chip. It shows the schematics for an undetectable spy drone that, the CIA believes, could be used as a bio-weapon delivery system.

Sydney sees Marshall and Carrie, who is pregnant. In a meeting, Syd tells Dixon she was held captive in The Covenant's Paris base and heard Kingsley's name. Kingsley is just one of eight recent murders of CIA agents. Lindsey's adamant that Sydney go on this mission. Syd agrees on the condition that she gets to see her father. Lindsey agrees.

Syd tells a handcuffed Jack, who's been charged with resisting authority for contacting Irina (#6 on the CIA Most Wanted List), that she lied about The Covenant's Paris outpost in order to see him. He urges her to regain her CIA clearance and continue his research into her disappearance. He knew she was alive and has evidence. He also tells her that Vaughn isn't worthy of her grief.

In a Paris hangar, Weiss leads Syd and small team looking for the chip. They are attacked. Weiss is knocked unconscious and his throat about to be slit by the man on the train. Syd saves him. She admits she was lying and now if she goes back, her clearance will be pulled. Syd must identify this man. Weiss advises her to see Sloane, who now runs the World Health Org. in Zurich and is a consultant for the CIA.

She barges into Sloane's office. He was expecting her and identifies the man — Gordei Volkov — a Russian hitman. Blaming him for her predicament, she threatens to kill Soane. He says he's been redeemed, that the Rambaldi device delivered a message of peace. He then gave the CIA info to dismantle two dozen terrorist cells. Syd doesn't buy it.

Finding an old contact, Syd discovers Volkov has a meeting in Prague. She ambushes him, blows up his car. In the ensuing melee, Syd stabs him and retrieves the chip as he dies. She returns to Lindsey, threatening to destroy the chip unless he releases her father. He acquiesces.

Vaughn meets Syd. She's angry with him for looking for closure. She says she would have had faith and waited. But now she realizes it would have been an absolute waste if she had.

Jack returns to the CIA and takes Syd to a storage room. He shows her videotape of a Russian diplomat named Andrian Lazarey. On the monitor, a blonde Sydney stabs the man in the neck, killing him.

Sunday, October 5

In Berlin, a helicopter lifts an elevator carrying two CIA agents out of its shaft. Satisfied that Syd is not brainwashed, Jack dissuades her from admitting to the CIA that she killed Lazarey. Later, Weiss helps Syd move in to a neighboring apartment. He says that Vaughn was reluctant to return to the CIA.

The team learns The Covenant, a loose affiliation of Russian nationals, is behind the kidnapping. They will execute the men unless their demands are met. Syd volunteers to retrieve a package in a Munich adult movie theater. Dixon informs Syd of a therapy group for those who have lost their memory. Jack tells Syd that she was cremated and Vaughn spread her ashes at sea.

In the theater, Syd opens the package — it's the head of one of the CIA agents. Shoved in his mouth is a note demanding the the CIA exchange Sark for the remaining agent. Syd objects but Lindsey says Sark has no more secrets and, based on info provided by Sloane, believes they want to kill him.

Syd visits Vaughn at his classroom; he's a French teacher. She tells him she could cope with his return to the Agency. After her death, Vaughn says, he lost control and started drinking. He was deeply in love with her, but he doesn't regret moving on with his life.

Jack confronts Sloane, doubting his redemption and blaming him for Syd's disappearance. Jack offers to stop his efforts to invalidate Sloane's pardon if he gives details. Sloane gives Jack a disc with his own leads into Syd's death. Despite Sloane's denials, Jack says he'll bury Sloane for his involvement.

In a CIA jail, Sark denies knowledge of Syd's death. At the exchange in the Sonora desert, Sark is unsure why The Covenant wants him. The trade is interrupted by a Lindsey-ordered Delta Force helicopter. In the confusion, Sark and the CIA agent, a scientist, are taken by the Covenant. Syd later threatens Lindsey in the men's room for pulling that stunt. A man named Ushek San'ko says that Sark killed his brother, and demands $800 million. He says Sark, unbeknownst to him, is worth that much. Vaughn is reinstated while Jack discovers that Sark and San'ko withdrew $800 million in gold bullion from a Grand Cayman bank. The money belonged to Lazarey, a murdered Russian diplomat and descendant of the Romanov family. When he died, it went to his son … Mr. Sark.

Weiss tracked the scientist to a Frankfurt nightclub, run by Otto Edel, a drug dealer. Jack believes The Covenant is responsible for Syd's two year absence and compelled her to assassinate Lazareey. He's contacts Irina, who offers her help.

At the club, Syd poses as a chemist offering to triple Edel's sales by making his drug more addictive. She threatens to overdose him, but he locates the alarm terminal. Vaughn remotely helps her deactivate the alarm. Syd opens the torture room where the scientist is held, shoots the torturer. The dying torturer remembers her, said she kept her promise to kill him. He says that she was his favorite because she never broke.

At therapy, others discuss their amnesia and ensuring nightmares. Syd later interrupts Dixon to tell him that although she still has feelings for Vaughn, she won't be a part of the group. Dixon introduces Syd to the woman to whom he was speaking, Lauren Reed, the new NSC liaison, who'll be investigating Lazarey's murder. She's Vaughn's wife.
