    So.. still in that mad house.. and Sydney is trying her best to get out but soon she manages to work out to way to end her job.. she starts to get friendly with that other inmate.. but then when she and he get out and share a heart-to-heart talk, she learns something..



    Oh.. I really most say Sydney in that madhouse was quite good - she really played it so well.. and the sad story of that another man.. oh.. And the whole thanksgiving party.. and to solve the Will's article thing.. Who knows what will happen now..



    And the ending.. that postcard.. beautiful..moreless
  • So good!

    I cried during this episode during the scene with Shepard and Sydney in the cabin, it was very emotional and I actually felt very sorry for what SD-6 had done to Shepard.



    You meet a lot of killers and bad guys during the course of this show, but Shepard was the first one I actually really liked a lot and didn't want to see reach a bad ending. I wanted to see him return because he was so sympathetic. The actor who played Shepard was great too! He really captured the essence of the character and made him a likable person!moreless

    Finalmente nos enteramos junto a Sidney quién fue el que mató a su amado: el pobrecito señor de los colores. Ella y su dolor a cuestas lo eximen de toda culpa y cargo entendiendo que no es culpable el que acciona si hay otro que planea.



    Aparte: es el primer capítulo que veo en mi nuevo monitor (lcd 17 pulgadas) de mi nueva compu (hp no se cuanto). Ah! Que placer! Al fin algo placentero que se cumple. Pronto estaré escribiendo estos reviews desde casa... no lo puedo creer. A veces el esfuerzo colosal trae consecuencias positivas, hechos que hacen creer que no es todo tan f**** useless... aunque sea por un rato...moreless
  • Great!

    9.5
    Sydney and Shephard escape the assylum successfully. He tells her that he was the one who killed Danny. She tells SD-6 that Shephard committed suicide. Vaughn and Jack meet. Jack tells Sydney more about her mother's death. Sloane suspects that there is more than one mole in SD-6. Will must publish his story about Danny's murder in the paper, but he doesn't want to. It's Thanksgiving and Francie gets engaged to Charlie!



    This episode was great! It was shocking to find out about Shephard's connection with Sydney. I hope Sloane doesn't find out about Jack or Sydney. This episode gets a 9.5 out of 10!moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Goof: Will's friend at the DMV calls to tell Will he has Eloise Kurtz's car, but although Will did try to recommend his friend he never got to tell Eloise a name.

    • Jack and Vaughn meet each other for the first time.

    • Goof:
      When Jack and Vaughn meet at the restaurant, Jack picks up his cup to pour himself some tea. When the camera angle changes while he's still pouring, the cup is sitting on the table.

    • Goof:
      When Shepard is having a black and white flashback to when he killed Danny, you can see the shadow of the camera operator on the wall right before the bathroom is entered.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Sydney: The irony is they never lied to me about what would happen if I told someone. It was the one thing they said that turned out to be true. Now I'm a double agent for the C.I.A. and I will be until SD-6 is gone.

    • Will: She said her name was Kate Jones, but it was really Eloise Kurtz. She was my source in the Danny Hecht investigation. That means she was more than a source, she was involved somehow! She was trying to tell me something, and now she's dead!

    • Jack: Mr. Vaughn, you're young and you're eager, and I understand that. But one thing you're not, and this is something only time can provide really, is wise.

    • Jack: Shepard killed Danny. I'm assuming you know that.
      Sydney: If I hadn't, thank you for breaking it to me gently.

    • Vaughn: Sydney's life is worth the risk!
      Jack: Not to Sydney! Taking them down is what gets her up in the morning. Or... did you think it was those meetings she has with you?

  • NOTES (2)

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Jack: It was the height of the Cold War. After they caught Boyce and Lee in '77 everybody was under suspicion.

      This is an allusion to Chris Boyce and Daulton Lee who were soviet spies and whose story is told in both the book The Falcon and The Snowman by Robert Lindsey. Sean Penn and Timothy Hutton star in the film of the same title.
