    AllAlias.com Summary for Passage (Part 1):

    [please report any error or omissions you find by PMing me, Charlie]

    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.

    ABC.com Summary:

    Sydney privately tells Sark that if he burns her, she'll return the favor. Sark tries to reassure her, saying he must keep quiet for his own safety as well. Later, a worried Sydney asks Irina if she told Sark that she was a double agent. Irina assures her that she did not, but that in itself doesn't mean that she's safe.

    At SD-6, Sloane tells the doubting team that Sark has turned himself in and bartered immunity for information. Sloane reassures them that Sark won't violate their agreement. Sark says that it's not in his best interest to betray them. Sloane then unveils the next mission: Sydney and Dixon are to purchase the communication codes used by Uzbek troops. Extremist forces in neighboring Tajikistan are trying to use the codes to plan terrorist attacks, and SD-6 wants to study them. Irina, upon hearing of the mission from Sydney, insists on being released for 48 hours but refuses to offer details. Her request is denied.

    Meanwhile, Sark tells Sloane that Sydney suspects he hasn't truly turned himself in. Since Jack can influence Sydney, they agree that Jack cannot know the real use of the codes. As Sark leaves, Sloane receives a phone call demanding account numbers for all SD-6 investments — or he will be held responsible for the death of his wife, Emily. Sloane is defiant.

    Sydney and Dixon meet with Zokolov in Uzbekistan and obtain the codes, which are secure in a case. However, the case will detonate if opened without proper validation — a fingerprint of the case's owner, an Uzbek soldier who's been conveniently assassinated. Disguised as Uzbek soldiers, Dixon delivers Sydney's "corpse" to a morgue. Having gained entry, she then finds the soldier's body and obtains the print. Sydney fights off several guards, finds Dixon, and they return to home.

    In LA, Will informs Vaughn that the KGB inserted questions into the 1982 standardized test, which was administered to 5 million American children. Vaughn bluntly says that Devlin ordered him to let Will go because his involvement may pose a security risk.

    Sydney tells Will that she has to gain Sark's trust. Later, she asks Vaughn why the CIA is ignoring Will's findings. Vaughn simply says that the research was sent to the FBI. He then shows Sydney a watch, a gift from his father, who had told him, "You could set your heart by this watch." The watch stopped October 1 — the day he and Syd met. Their pagers sound, and the moment is cut short.

    Sydney and Vaughn discover that the codes are actually for six portable nuclear warheads that were confirmed missing six months ago. Furthermore, Sark electronically sent the codes to an unknown third party. They should have listened to Irina.

    Irina says that revealing the details earlier might have exposed Sydney as a double agent. The warheads are in Kashmir, she says, at a former maximum security prison that's now the stronghold for the People's Revolutionary Front. Sydney convinces Irina to lead a team to Kashmir. A furious Jack reacts by joining the team himself. He gives Irina a necklace layered with C4, warning her that he would detonate it if she tried to escape.

    Will, although no longer working for Vaughn, gives him 40 names of children who achieved perfect scores on the standardized tests. He researched a culture study from 1980-1985 to find these scores, which Vaughn had said the CIA couldn't uncover. Will says he's still trying to figure out why the '82 tests were missing.

    Disguised as a loving family on vacation, Irina, Jack and Sydney board a train en route to Kashmir. They parachute from the train and meet their contact, who provides them with the necessary equipment. Meanwhile, back at SD-6 Sloane receives a small package containing Emily's finger, with the wedding ring attached.

    Syd, Irina and Jack are ambushed by the PRF on the way to the camp. During the fight, Irina uses the C-4 necklace, as well as a machine gun. After killing the soldiers, Jack informs Irina that she is not to carry a weapon. Irina acquiesces, but reminds him that they are in enemy territory and need to start trusting each other. The trio makes their way toward a CIA station where they can patch through to Langley on a secure line. They leave, set to arrive at dawn.
