  • Trivia

    • Goof:
      When Sloane and Sydney are standing in front of the TV looking at their own image from a camera nearby, Sydney raises the remote control to switch to another channel. However the Sydney in the picture does not move her hand.

    • Yanking the glass shard out of Sloane's chest the way Nadia did is an extraordinarily bad idea. The proper field procedure is to apply pressure to the wound around the glass shard. Nadia, as a field-trained agent, would have known this.

  • Quotes

    • Sydney: Don't. Touch. The fur. Alright, you may touch the fur... Once.

    • Vaughn: I'm sorry, maybe it's only me, but what do you mean when you say "Rambaldi's end-game"? What is it? Is it a scenario? A weapon?
      Sloane: In Elena's hands most likely an apocalypse.

    • Nadia: (about Elena's treachery) I just feel stupid, I trusted her.
      Marshall: Hey I don't blame you, I mean she was like family. Don't put this on yourself, hell I trusted Sloane for 6 years, before I found out he was evil.

    • Katya: Irina spent the last years of her life tracking Elena, she was determined to stop our sister from enacting her end-game, and she would have done it too, but you had to go put a bullet in her head.
      Jack: I was set up, Elena put a hit out on Sydney, framed Irina for it.
      Katya: Oh! I see so you executed my sister on a misunderstanding… oh then all is forgiven.

    • Katya: Is that look on your face supposed to be intimidating? You forget, Jack- I've seen your tender side.
      Jack: I need everything you know on Elena's operations- right now.
      Katya: What makes you think I know anything?
      Jack: Call it an instinct.
      Katya: Do you intend to torture me?
      Jack: If I have to.
      Katya: While I know that would be enjoyable for both of us, I should warn you, I have quite a bit of stamina. But you already know that about me.

    • Marshall: Hey, man, congratulations, that's fantastic! I'm sure Mr. Bristow's gonna be thrilled.
      Vaughn: Really? I'm just hoping he doesn't shoot me on the spot.

    • Elena: My men think you're here to kill me.
      Sloane: You should hire smarter men.
