  • Just when you think that some things are going to get right, you only find out that no one has changed. Sloane is still the same old betrayer, Lauren and Sark never rest, and help comes when it is most unexpected.

  • Quotes (16)

    • Sydney: It's okay. You're safe. I promise he will never hurt you again. Nadia He protected me.

    • Sloane: You're gonna be okay. I promise. Nadia: No, I won't. I guess the angel isn't coming.

    • Sloane: I don't want to hurt you. Nadia: Then why are you doing this? Sloane: When Abraham was asked to take his only child, Isaac, and offer him up to God, he didn't hesitate. And he took in his hand the fire and the knife, and it was only then, that the angel came. But Abraham had to be willing to make this unbearable choice. Nadia: I understand. Sloane: You do? Nadia: You're a man of faith. Sloane: Oh, my child. My child. (Nadia opens her restraints with a pen and stabs Sloane with the needle he used on her) Nadia: How do you like it!?

    • Sloane: The deal's off. If you go quietly, you leave unharmed. Lauren: You remind me of my father. When he learned the CIA was close to identifying me as Covenant, he was willing to do anything to protect me, even take the fall. He loved me that much. He's dead now, because reaching this goal is far more important.

    • Sloane: If we overload the cerebrum, her brain won't be able to function properly. She could die. Sark: But we would have the equation, wouldn't we? Sloane: Don't - Don't push me, Julian. Lauren: You are wasting time we do not have. We have all chosen this path, Arvin. We have all made sacrifices. I trust you are willing to do the same.

    • Vivica A. Fox was billed as Special Guest Star in this episode.

    • When Sydney and Vaughn enter the old Soviet Union facility, there's a text on the wall - 3abtpa. Which means "Tomorrow" in Russian.

    • Music from this episode includes: "Curu Curu" by Osnel Odit Bavastro

    Trivia (10)

    • Marshall noted that CIA paid him very well, though less than one million dollars a year.

    • Why would Sloane put his entire collection of Rambaldi serum out in the open where it could potentially be compromised? It's been established that Sloane is not dumb and well versed in Game theory. Even a novice in Game theory or contingencies would keep something that valuable in a spot that isn't easily reached or at the very least, easily compromised/broken, yet Nadia is able to destroy them quickly and conveniently.

    • If The Passenger was already known to the Russians, and they did experiments on her with the Rambaldi serum, why did everyone go through the trouble of collecting the Rambaldi artifacts to build "Il Dire", that's the final machine that gave Sloane the word "Peace" and generated the genetic code in "Unveiled". Also, some of the artifacts used to build "Il Dire" where hidden and untouched for may years so how did the Russians know who the passenger was and what she represented?

    • Goof: When Vaughn, Sydney and Katya are driving away from the checkpoint outside of Novgorod 12, you can clearly see palm trees in the background. No species of palm tree grows in Russia.

    • How does Vaughn know there was acid in the beaker? He just picks up a glass rod and dips it in the acid, then puts it on Suit & Glasses. But the beaker is unmarked, and they didn't have a chance to see S&G use the acid.
