Question: So can you give us some hints on what will happen on the final episode of Alias? Something we don't already know. — Jen
Ausiello: Get this: I'm leaving TV Guide's Globes bash and who should I bump into but my favorite TV titan of all time, J.J. Abrams, who informs me that his wife gave birth to their third child, son August, seven days ago. (No, that's not the big news. Keep reading….) After congratulating him and gushing over his baby pics (shocker: he's cute!), I got down to business and asked him if there was any chance he might find the time in between editing Mission: Impossible 3 to write the series finale of Alias. His response nearly caused me to pass out. "Actually, [MI3] is almost done, so yeah, we're talking about it. And I might direct it, too."
