I have been wondering lately about the family relationships in Alias. Anyone else think there things are weird? -Sydney frequently talking about Emily Sloan as a mother figure. -Sloan frequently talking about Syd as a daughter (since early first season). -The odd conversation between Sloan and Irina on the jet in Truth Takes Time. Sloan speaks of his regard for Sydney, angering Irina. "Don't ever talk about your love for my daughter," she snaps. She also says something very cryptic about "the arangement" they have. I dont have the episode right now but if anyone can watch that scene I think you'll know what I'm talking about. I dont know what to make of any of this but I wonder if Sydney really is the daughter of Jack and Laura Bristow... All thoughts on the subject are welcome.
