    Will, tranquilized and badly beaten, is dragged into a dingy storeroom, where Mr. Sark asks him about "the circumference"... with no answers. A sinister Taiwanese interrogator -- "Suit And Glasses," who tortured Sydney months before -- enters with an array of frightening instruments...

    Sydney receives a call from Sark, setting up the exchange of her friend for the Rambaldi page that was stolen in Paris and the ampule of solution... to take place in Taipei, in 24 hours.

    Jack agrees to help recover Will. He can easily get the ampule from CIA storage, but recovering the page will be tricky -- it's in an offsite SD-6 vault located off the coast of Santa Barbara... and they will need Sloane's fingerprint and voiceprint in order to gain access. Jack suggests that they study the Rambaldi page themselves and determine its value, before negotiating further with Sark. He also tells Sydney that she must keep her plan from Vaughn -- the CIA has a mole.

    When Vaughn explains to Sydney that Will is still likely to be alive, he senses that she hiding something. Later, he tells Weiss that he suspects that Sydney has her own plan to rescue Will.

    Her cancer now in remission, Emily is out of the hospital. At a remote beach house, Sloane finally tells her the truth about SD-6...

    Later at SD-6, Alliance member Ramon Veloso explains to Sloane that they only allowed Emily to live because her future had been pre-determined her by lymphoma. Sloane demands that her life be spared... but protocol insists that she be terminated. If he carries out their order, however, Veloso affirms that he will become a fully-fledged member of the Alliance...

    Wearing a concealed recording device, Sydney visits Sloane in his office, to speak candidly about Emily... In reality, she is distracting him while Jack hacks into Sloane's computer to collect the needed passwords, and takes a voiceprint and fingerprint.

    ...Having now stolen the Rambaldi page from the remote SD-6 island vault, Sydney climbs out of the water, only to be confronted...by Dixon. He demands to know why she used the codename "Freelancer" on Mount Aconcagua... Sydney is pleading when she insists that she is not betraying her country, but also that she cannot reveal the truth to him... and Dixon walks away.

    Meanwhile, Vaughn is summoned into a meeting with Devlin and Haladki. Weiss has reported that Vaughn no longer fully trusts Sydney, and now they all need to know what may be hiding.

    Jack calls Devlin. After taking the ampule from the CIA, he assures that he will return the stolen item once his mission is completed... Devlin demands that Jack return immediately.

    Since Will has disappeared, his friend Abby, at the newspaper, goes straight to editor Litvack, with his sealed envelope about SD-6. And the editor agrees to run the story...as front page news.

    Using the Rambaldi solution, Jack and Sydney finally expose the mysterious page. It reveals drawings for the same "Mueller device" stolen by Sydney in prototype stage, from Taipei months ago. Jack explains that this might explain Khasinau's search for "the circumference," a precise set of instructions for building the device in this drawing.

    On a hunch, Jack abducts Haladki, who under pain of torture, admits to being the CIA mole...and that he has been working for Khasinau. The instructions are for a "battery" that Khasinau has been constructing in a Taipei lab... And after a treacherous, and deranged Haladki spills all...Jack silences him, for good.

    Vaughn later finds Sydney alone at a train station. He has figured out what she is planning, and agrees to help save Will. With Jack, they will fly to Taipei...and while Jack makes the exchange for her friend, Sydney and Vaughn are to simultaneously detonate the lab where the battery is located.

    At home, Sloane mixes a powder into a glass of wine. With resolve, he and Emily raise their glasses for a final toast... and she forgives him for the mistakes that he has made...

    Meanwhile, after hours of torture, Will still hasn't revealed much about "the circumference." When he is finally unchained, he plunges a syringe into the neck of his sadistic interrogator. Guards seize Will, and drag him from the room.

    In an alleyway, Jack meets with Sark and exchanges the page -- the drawing, now exposed -- for Will, who has been spared, bloody, but alive... Sobbing, Will embraces the stony-faced man who has handed him back his future...

    Across town, Sydney and Vaughn find the Mueller device, behind lock and key, in a Taiwanese dance club. It is, in fact, similar to the prototype she retrieved before...only much, much bigger.

    Sydney detonates the explosive, unleashes a tremendous flood... and she and Vaughn dash through the underground complex, trying to escape the approaching torrent...

    Sydney makes it through a security door, but cannot hold it open long enough for Vaughn, who is trapped -- on the wrong side, in a room filling, perilously fast, with rushing water... and seconds later, Vaughn is gone. When Sydney turns, she is knocked out by sharp blow from a security guard.

    She awakens to a familiar scene: she is once again chained to a chair, in a Taipei storeroom. But this time, instead of "Suit And Glasses," her interrogator is Khasinau... who explains that "his boss" has questions for her.

    Puzzled, Sydney admits she thought "The Man" was the one in charge... But Khasinau is not "The Man." The door opens... "The Man" is a woman... Sydney's mother...

    AllAlias.com Summary:
    In the last few weeks of Alias, it is revealed that Sloane knows the
    truth about SD 6, and Will found out the truth about SD 6. Sark shot
    him, and Will was brought to a room and chained up. Sark asks Will what
    the circumference is. Will says he doesn’t know. The “BITEME guy” comes
    in and says “hello”.


    At the apartment, Sydney and Francie are talking. Francie wants to open
    a restraunt. Sark calls Sydney, and tells her that she has 48 hours to
    give him the Ampule, or Will dies. At the pier, Jack and Sydney talk.
    Jack looks into getting the page and the ampule. Sydney has to not tell
    Vaughn about this.

    At the garage, Sydney does a great job of lying to Vaughn, but he sense
    things. At the CIA, Michael tells Weiss that he senses Sydney isn’t
    telling her everything.

    At a beach house, Arvin and Emily talk. He tells her the truth about SD
    6. She looks unbelieving. She shakes. We don’t hear everything he says.

    Sydney and Jack talk. He gives her a tool to track Sloane’s speech. Jack
    will reorder the phonemes so that it is the right password. Sydney goes
    into Sloane’s office. She tries to gather words. She gathers the right
    phonemes, leaves the office, and smiles at Dixon. Will is getting
    drilled. The BITEME guy said that he had a cavity

    An Alliance member comes to talk to Sloane. Sloane wants to bring in
    Emily, and that he wants to be a high-ranking officer. The Alliance
    member tells him that he can become high-ranking officer if he kills his

    At a beachfront (near the facility that Page 47 is in that is surrounded
    by water), Sydney gets into a suit, and goes into the water, but Dixon
    followed her. Sydney went into a scuba suit, dove into the water, and
    opened a underwater gate.

    At the CIA, Vauhgn is in a meeting. Weiss reported that Vaughn was
    suspicious of Sydney. Sydney breaks into a lab. She enters the right
    phonemes, enters the lab, and gets the page. Jack breaks into a

    Sydney got out of the water, and Dixon is there. He asks her who he is
    working for. Sydney tells her to believe in her. Dixon asks for a better
    reason. Dixon turned away.

    Jack calls the CIA. He says that he is doing what they were afraid of,
    but they will get the ampule back, in addition to Page 47.

    Back with Will, he has lost a tooth. Or maybe more than that! There is
    blood all over his chin. Will is crying.

    At the paper, the reporter that Will gave the story in case anything
    happened to him wanted to print the story.

    Sydney and Jack put some of the ampule on the page. Jack beats up
    Scumball. He sprays something on him. Scumball admits he is the mole.
    Jack pulls the trigger.

    At the train station, Michael finds Sydney (secretly). He came to stop
    Sydney from giving the page to save Will’s life. Michael talks about his
    father’s diary.

    In an airplane, Vaughn, Sydney, and Jack are there. Back with Will, he
    is prepared for exchange, but he fights back. He succeeds for a little
    while, but not long.

    Sloane puts a poison in Emily’s wine. She says that she forgives him for
    being who he is.

    In TAIPAI, Michael and Sydney (with Blue hair) are at a party. Jack is
    at a pier for the exchange with Sark. They make the exchange. Will hugs
    Jack, says “thank you”. At the party, Sydney and Michael are hard at
    work. She does a lot of super-fast super-kick-butt action. In room 47,
    there is a huge red ball. It is really huge. She says “Vaughn, it’s
    bigger than I thought”. The connection with Vaughn is lost.

    Some guards see Sydney. She sets an explosive, and runs awat from the
    explosion. The big ball, which is now water, puts out the explosion, and
    floods the hallway. A safety door closes, but Michael doesn’t get
    through. Sydney frantically tries to break down the door. A guard shoots

    Sydney is in a room, chained down. Kas. comes in. She says she has
    questions for him. He says to ask her boss. Sydney is shocked, as he
    thought The Man was the boss. He says yes, The Man is the boss, but that
    he is not the boss. Then, a figure comes in. Laura Bristow’s (I think)
    voice then says “I have waited almost Thirty Years…”
