I thought this epi was great. In fact every epi so far I voted grate. in my opinion This season is turning out to be just as great as season two. And it proubably would be if Vaughn was still around. I fear I can not vote any higher then great because of the fact that Vaughn isn't around any more. You bring Vaughn back then you bring back the ratings of Best episode ever!

I never commented on Rachel before because they didn't give us much to go on in the beginning but I really think that I love her character, maybe even more then Nadia's, *ashamed to say* Actually both new characters have really added great things to this show.

You know, Rachel reminds me of a mixture of Marshal and Sydney in one! LOL

The only problem I had with this episode was how Syd and Rach escaped the car. The magnet had no magnetism in it, whish is why the car fell. soooo how in the world did it drop the car but become magnetized to the crowbar with in seconds? Maybe it still had enough in it to magnetize to the bar but not enough to hold a car??? I don't know, but I am still thinking about it.

Oh, oh, oh and one more thing.
When Sloane said treat her like she was your own daughter, did any one notice Jacks face? It looked like he was like oh, but she IS my own daughter! Maybe its just me.

Vaughn was too important a part of the show to be forgotten.
IMO, I don't think he is. Honestly, I like the show better without him. It's about missions rather than the ooey-gooey spysex it turned into. It got boring last season. I liked Vaughn a bit in season 1 and 2, but after season 2, I didn't care for him at all. I found him a bit priggish and annoying. Without him, I've realized how much I missed the action-driven episodes of Alias.



ETA: they pushed the release button, not the De-Magnatize button I believe, that's why it was still magnetic....

It was bad. They're destroying the show :mad:
No reasons? I bet it has something to do with the fact that Vaughn wasn't in it, right?

:ROFLMAO: :ROFLMAO: Are you wondering to yourself -- "what in hell is she on????".... I know.... I know.... It was a hard thing to admit to myself but I've come to terms with it.... :LOL:
HOORAY! An honest and fair Vaughn lover! I love to see you Vartan fanatics broadening your horizons and not letting the fact that he's no longer in the show blind you of its greatness :D

I thought that it was an okay episode. Would have been better if it had Vaughn in it.

that was because they weren't holding on by the crowbar. Syd used the crowbar to break open the front window, but used the glass magnet/laser thingie from breaking into the casino vault to keep them stuck to the electromagnet. i noticed that with the split-second view because she had the handle in her hand & i saw the really shiny round part stuck to the magnet.

anyway, i really liked this episode. yes, i think that Rachel is a big wuss and they should've ditched her in the explosion last week, but of course they didn't do that. you'd figure that even sitting behind a desk and being lied to like that would piss her off to no end (like i'm sure it pissed off many of the desk agents at SD-6), but noooo, she has to be a big fat crybaby and refuse to go back to the office. for crying out loud, Sydney helped the CIA RAID SD-6! sheesh. but Tom really amuses me. i think he's a great addition to the cast. as for who i think is in the box? could be Rambaldi, but i sure hope not. i think it's either Bill Vaughn or someone from Sydney's past.

oh yeah, and you've gotta love the pregnant Casino!Syd...that was definitely priceless...^_^

I'm sorry that some of you don't care for Rachel, but at least give the girl a chance. Because they are creating her character the way it is, we will get to see more of what makes Sydney tick. Sydney is the one who will be molding her into a agent. - So I think this will make them delve deeper into Sydney's character and I think it could be real good.

Yaahooo yippeee ALIAS is rocking again...even with a pregnant Sydney!!! This episode is great, better than last week. Love the fact that everyone is involve in the operations...just like the old days. And how Sloane looks so darn evil at the end of the show..at one point he was a reformed man and then the next he has this look in his face that reminds you of Season 1 & 2. Totally LOVE it...now if only they could bring Mr. Sark back to the show.

As time goes on I feel like telling all of the people who think "alias sucks. Its so felgercarb." To STOP WATCHING. I mean CMON. why would you spend an hour of your life a wekk to watch something that sucks. i wouldn't I think people should grow up and STOP complaining.

mind you I AM NOT pointing the finger at any person(s) Its just over the past month or so, everyone's commments are starting upset and annoy a lot of real and actual alias fans. If you dont like the show then stop watching it. Or just keep your comments to yourselves. An old saying, "If you cant say anything nice, then dont say anything at all."
And my reaction is in NO MEANS towards those who say "Rachel is stupid" Although it isnt nice :LOL: Thats not anything, Just the whole "Alias is S***t Its all Jennifer Garners Fault, JJ Abrams wrecked alias."

ITS NOT LIKE US, were all Alias loving, caring and sharing people... I think. :LOL: Otherwise we wouldnt be on this board ;)

I couldn't agree MORE! I'm sick of all these people talking about hating ALIAS because of ONE or TWO things changing this season. Those people obviously don't understand how many things this show STILL has to offer!

Also, It's only 4 episodes into the season, so you can't ALREADY hate Rachel. We haven't even known her character for more than 2 episodes yet, so don't make early judgments about her until you learn more about her character.

Well, a pretty boring episode IMO, Dean trying to get Rachel back in a very transparent way. I would have voted 1 if it hadn't been for the great scenes with Sloane, and Jack/Sloane. Those two are fabulous actors!!!
I loved when Jack entered the court room and simply touched Sloanes shoulder. That said more than thousands words.
And Sloane, is he back to his good old bad days, or is he good and just trying to bring down the ũber-bad guys by pretending to work with them? I love this!!!

Hey, I miss Vaughn as much as the next fan, but I still like the show. I like the new agents. Fresh blood. What's wrong with that? Rachel is fascinating. She and Sydney had some great scenes. I like how Sydney has taken this adorable genius under her wing. Balthazar Getty is cool too. I didn't enjoy his character as much in the last episode, but in this eppy, his scenes with Dixon on the Caymen Island was really enjoyable. I think the new agents will only improve as the season goes on. I've always liked BG so I think he won't disappoint me in the long run. Rachel is very pretty, in my opinion.

BTW, I LOVE having Sloane EVIL AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!! :P Evil Sloane is always so exciting!

Anyone else really bugged by the fact that the Jaguar hoisted by the electomagnet is made of aluminum? Aluminum is not magnetic. Of all the car models in the world, they had to choose one of the 10 that make a complete nonsense of the scene.

But I did enjoy Sydney in the Casino.
