I think if we're honest with ourselves the relationship between Sydney and Michael Vaughn ended none to soon. It had become boring to watch. The anticpation of their being together was much greater than the actual act, and I think the fact is that as a couple they we're kind of a big fizzling dud. The producers saw this and had to act fast. Rather than having us languishing weeking after week with another boring Vaughn-Bristow love seen we are back to being tortured by the poor couple that has been separted by fate. Tortured lovers. It's much more exciting and much more interesting this way. So we tune in once again in hopes for whatever small possibility there might be that the two might be together again and we enjoy the chase, or the ride, much more than the actual catch.
