what the HELL!!! is going on? obviously, the big question is: how did Sydney end up in hong kong 2 years later not having any memory of those 2 years? alright sure fine. now my assumption is that it has something to do with Sloane's new Rambaldi device called "the telling." but i'm very interested to hear others ideas on that. other interesting development: Irina's reference to the prophecy about the person to bring together Rambaldi's works, bind them with fury and so on and so on. i've noticed there've been alot of people on here talking about how the picture of the woman in the prophecy didn't look like Irina. and the logical answer to those questions about why it didn't is simply to say that at that point in the show they hadn't cast Irina Derevko yet, and so they made the picture look like Sydney with the hopes of casting someone to play Irina who looks a fair bit like Jennifer Garner. but now if what Irina was saying is true, the prophecy is about Sydney but not about her bringing desolation, but being the only one that prevented it. is that what everyone else understood? i should have watched the ep a couple more times before posting to make sure that i had my facts straight, but i couldn't wait. and of course one of the very large and perhaps most upsetting to many, is the whole Vaughn is married scenario. he sure moves on fast. only 2 years he waited and he didn't even see a body. i could understand 2 years if he had seen her body, but c'mon Vaughn!!! now due to the detail of the Rambaldi prophecy involving Sydney and the fact that the picture looking like Sydney wasn't a mistake, but part of JJ's master plan it makes me even more suspicious of what happened that day that the CIA took down the Alliance (y'all might remember my obsession with the possibility of the real Francie still being alive). it just doesn't seem to me that the time difference on that day from when Sydney called Will and told him to get out of town to when Francie was killed in her restaurant was just a production mistake. i'm not saying that i think the real Francie is still alive, but i believe something happened that day that will shed some light on..... something. now i believe that the show will not continue from 2 years into the future. i think that Sloane's new Rambaldi device will be used (perhaps by Sydney) to reverse time and go back to our present day. i of course have no solid reasoning to back that up, but i have a couple ideas as to why it MIGHT be a possibility. first) it seems that Merrin Dungey has been completely killed off the show, and i'm not sure they would do that. Merrin has been doing some intense physical training for her role on the show and i don't think they would have her go through all that just for one fight scene in her final episode on the show. so i think that one Francie (good or bad) will be back. and the only way to do that would either be to have the real Francie still alive or to go back in time and Sydney not end up killing the evil Francie. this would of course be assuming she will still be on the show next year. and despite all they have invested in Merrin they could write her out of the show. second) the whole Sydney and Vaughn relationship. they can't have them apart. it just wouldn't work. and so what, is Vaughn supposed to leave his wife now because it turns out Syd's alive? okay, stupid question, of course he is. lol. but seriously he's a loyal guy and i don't see him leaving his wife. so where does that leave their relationship then? it leaves it at basically nowhere. and i just don't see that as a real possibility. I WON'T ACCEPT IT!!! and btw, wasn't that the best fight scene ever with Sydney and evil Francie? i was actually totally hyperventilating. i couldn't feel my hands, they went completely numb. the lesson: always have a paper bag with you during ALIAS. and on anothe note, i'm so happy Will is alive. though i kinda figured that he wouldn't get killed off, there's was still that worry in the pit of my stomach. cause Bradley Cooper said in an interview that his reaction to the whole evil Francie duplicate is going to be very unexpected, so i figured Will would be around at least until we see his reaction, and that didn't really happen. okay, it's late and my mind is a whirlwind, i'm not even sure if anything that i just said makes any sense. okay, so please anybody share your opinions on this post. same or different. any new ideas.
