ABC (ended 2006)




  • Season 4 Episode 18: Mirage

  • It's been established that Kradic is very why does he discuss his plans in front of the waitress? Even if the waitress wasn't Sydney, she would be a liability.

  • As of this episode, six actresses, have played the part of Irina Derevko/Laura Bristow.
    Lena Olin: Season 2 Regular. Has played Irina, for the longest period, is usually associated with the character.
    Uncredited Actress: Season 1, episode 6. First person to portray Irina, in picture's kept by Sydney.
    Uncredited Actress 2: Season 1, episode 19. Second appearance of Irina, this time in a KGB briefing video, discussing her relationship, with Jack.
    April Webster: Season 1, episode 22. Used in the last shot of season 1, to set up Irina as a major character in season 2. They were still auditioning for the full time role of Irina, and Lena Olin had not yet been cast.
    Mia Maestro: Season 4, episode 4. Lena Olin was not available to create a set of pictures used in this episode, so Mia Maestro, who play's Nadia, her onscreen daughter, stepped in, to replace her, as Irina. She is also the 1st of two, series regulars, to play Irina Derevko, in season 4, the other is Jennifer Garner.
    Jennifer Garner: Season 4, episode 18. Jennifer Garner played Irina in this episode to extract intel, from her father Jack, who, while unstable, believes she is her mother Laura [Irina].

  • Season 4 Episode 17: A Clean Conscience

  • Behind the guard at the embassy, there is a sign that says "Kun for toriseret personale", supposedly meaning "Authorized personnel only" in Danish, but it is actually quite meaningless. The correct Danish would be "Kun for autoriseret personale".

  • Next to the hotel Russeau there's a shop. The sign reads "Droog schoonmaakster" by which is meant dry cleaner.
    However a dry cleaner translated in Dutch is "stomerij". Literal translation of "droog schoonmaakster" is dry housekeeper.

  • Season 4 Episode 16: Another Mister Sloane

  • Goof: The cutting of the elevator cable shouldn't have worked as all elevators have emergency brakes fitted for in case the main cable is ever severed. It should have come to a halt a few floors down.

  • Number 47: One of the patches Sydney needs to make in order for Marshall to tie into the hotel security system is patch #47.

  • Goof: When the black background which displays the cities names in the show comes up, it reads Santiago. Now there are at least 3 mayor cities named Santiago: Santiago de Chile (Chile), Santiago de Compostela (Spain) and Santiago de Cuba (Cuba). The Santiago we see is supposedly in Chile, since the vehicle plates we see from the black van are from Chile. However, when they show Santiago as a vegetation covered hill side with houses that's incorrect, for Santiago is located on a plain at the center of a valley, and has only one mayor hill landmark, Cerro San Cristobal, the rest of it is crawling with buildings and commerce.

  • Why would Carter "wreck" Dr. Sinclair's hands if she was supposed to assemble something for them? She managed to do it, of course, but it seems like a large risk, especially since she has other body parts (legs, most prominently) to choose from.

  • Goof:
    When Sydney is in the elevator, she cocks her gun, and the bell rings. However, she was going to the Basement, yet the backdrop behind her is still above ground.

  • Season 4 Episode 15: Pandora

  • When Vaughn sends Sydney a text message after he goes rogue, we see he is listed in Sydney's phone as "Vaughnzee".

  • Season 4 Episode 14: Nightingale

  • There is no "Sherwood Library" at UCLA. (And the building they showed as the library is not on UCLA campus).

  • Goof: Jack says he has ordered a bottle of Pinot Noir. The wine bottle at the table is a Bordeaux-shaped bottle, not a Burgundy-shaped bottle that Pinot Noir wines use.

  • Season 4 Episode 13: Tuesday

  • CPR should be performed at the ratio of 30 compressions to 2 breaths. Marshall obviously doesn't know CPR because whatever he was doing it wasn't 30:2.

  • Number 47: The locker containing the hard drive is # 471.

  • Number 47: The hard drive is found in locker 80237. 8 + 0 + 2 + 37 = 47.

  • Goof: It's unlikely Sydney would live buried under dirt long enough for anyone to fly from America to Cuba.
    The coffin would normally collapse before long, so she'd have about an hour or two of air at the most. There is nowhere the amount of time that a Motorola Razr (the phone she was using) would run out of battery life while not in use, or even when in use.

  • Even though Sydney is in danger, Marshall takes the time to dig a perfectly rectangular hole with smoothed out sides...

  • Sydney gets wonderful reception (4 bars) while buried in a coffin. Granted, it isn't concrete or anything...but 4 bars?

  • Goof: How come the coffin is still illuminated after Sydney switched off her cellphone?

  • Why is it night in Germany AND L.A? They are divided roughly by 10 hours, so if it's evening/night in L.A. it's early morning in Germany.
