  • Syndey tries to erase a nightmare from her past by finding the killer of her childhood mentor.

    7.5
    In a different storyline to the usual relic hunting, Sydney gets involved in trying to solve the mystery of who killed her mentor (Newell) 20 years ago. Sydney and Nigel are contacted by Darcy - Sydney's friend as a child - who has some information that an ancient Egyptian relic is being sold. This relic was last seen in the hands of Newell before he was shot. A shock is in store for Sydney as she finds the man - who she thought killed Newell - is Darcy's father! Apparently Darcy's father knew the man (Deviega) that killed Newell but was afraid of being blamed for his death. After this emotional time for Sydney, they track down some clues to an ancient cult in Turkey and that Deviega belongs to the cult. As he is about to sell the relic, Sydney intervenes. She rescues the relic and is intent on killing Deviega - but he gets away...



    This episode is well written and intertwines Sydney's childhood with her current life in an effective way. Tia Carrere is asked to display more emotions than normal in this storyline and she does well. Simon McCorkindale (who is also a producer of the show) - plays the sinister villain well. Surprising, Jack Langedijk - who plays Darcy's father - also displays a sinister aspect throughout the episode although he is shown to be innocent.moreless

    • 2002 Young Artist Award Nominated - Best Performance in a TV Drama Series - Guest Starring Young Actress: Cassie Steele.

    • Simon MacCorkindale is also a Co-Executive Producer on the show as of its third season, so presumably they get a discount on actor's fees by making him a recurring villain (he'll appear in two more episodes this season).
