  • Sydney and Nigel are forced to help an old foe find an urn connected with Confuscius.

    Sydney and Nigel become quickly embroiled into helping an old foe - De Viega - after they are tricked by his help (Masters). De Viega explains that the Confuscius urn is in area about to be shortly bombed. Sydney struggles with the idea of killing De Viega or finding the relic. In any case, De Viega has a gun (and takes Sydney's knife) and also gets Karen kidnapped as insurance. Masters leads them through the jungle and minefields - but Nigel still falls on a mine. Masters and Sydney help Nigel escape possible death but then another trap kills Masters. Sydney then attacks De Viega but he tells her about Karen's predicament. With time running out, they continue quickly to the site where the urn is meant to be located. Solving some clues and avoiding some traps, they find the urn - but Sydney forces De Viega to let Karen go - before they leave. With bombs falling, Sydney and Nigel hide in an abandoned tank. They assume that De Viega has died but a cryptic note tells them otherwise...

    Simon MacCorkindale plays De Viega again in this exciting episode and the constant tension between him and Sydney is good. Roger R. Cross also plays the obsessive bombs expert well - and it is a shock to see him die so early in the episode. However, the idea of entering a jungle with bombs falling and not enough time to get out - doesn't make much sense.moreless
