Season 5: Episode 1- "Prophet Five"
Sydney regains consciousness after the car crash and instinctively suspects the motives of the paramedics. When a man tries
to inject her with a tranquilizer, she swipes his hand away and eludes the other "medics." Hiding in a cornfield, she sees
Vaughn airlifted by an unmarked helicopter.
Later, as doctors evaluate Syd, she meets Gordon Dean from the Office of
Special Investigations, who grills her about Vaughn's whereabouts and activities. Jack explains that Vaughn is a suspected
double agent, and the car crash was actually an extraction.
A bloodied Vaughn, referred to as Mr. Michaux, is given
a strip of paper with coded numbers. When Vaughn denies knowing anything about the cryptic sheet, a man named Curtis threatens
to cut "the girl's finger off." Vaughn agrees to cooperate and asks for a pencil.
Before Vaughn can write, however,
he asks to have his dislocated shoulder popped into place. When Curtis accommodates him, he punches Curtis and makes his escape.
He contacts Sydney and asks her to trust him -- and to bring his father's watch when they rendezvous.
At APO Dixon
tells a troubled Syd to give Vaughn the benefit of the doubt - as Dixon did for her years ago when he first realized that
they worked for SD-6. Meanwhile, Gordon Dean instructs Marshall to pull Vaughn's files.
When Sydney arrives in Rome,
Vaughn explains that his real name is Andre Michaux and his father was a mathematician involved with a top-secret project
called "Prophet Five." He gleaned this info seven years ago from a woman named Renee Rienne and has been working with her
They meet James Lehman, a friend of Vaughn's father. Lehman explains that brilliant scientists and linguists
were recruited for Prophet Five in the 70's and were asked to break the code of a 500 year-old document on advanced genetics.
After this group succeeded, its members were systematically murdered. As precaution, Vaughn's father changed his identity,
as did Lehman. He warns that the murderers are relentless. He tells them the location of a book containing more Prophet Five
In Cape Town, South Africa, Sydney and Vaughn, posing as a French couple attending a party at a mansion, try unsuccessfully
to steal the book from the home's vault. As they run towards a cliff, Sydney receives a phone call from her doctor, who tells
her that she's pregnant. Sydney shares the good news with Vaughn, who has a muted reaction. They jump.
combs through medical journals in jail, desperately trying to find a cure for Nadia, who is still in a coma after being subjected
to Rambaldi's device. He denies knowing anything about Vaughn's treachery to Jack, but says that Renee Rienne, an ex-CIA agent,
could be a possible lead.
As Sydney and Vaughn sit in a car waiting for Lehman, they talk about her pregnancy. Vaughn
says his initial hesitation was because of the complicated world they live in, but he can't wait to be a father. Seeing Lehman
in the distance, Vaughn jumps out. Suddenly another car drives by -- Gordon Dean steps out with Curtis and both fire at Lehman
and Vaughn. They drop in a hail of bullets.
Waiting in the ICU, Syd tells Jack she's going to stand by Vaughn. As
Jack reprimands her, Sydney reveals her pregnancy. Jack softens. Later, he goes to APO and instructs the team to research
Prophet Five and retrieve the records in Cape Town.
Later, as Syd watches over Vaughn, he flat-lines. Syd is frantic
as the doctors work on him to no avail. He slips away.
After Vaughn's funeral, Syd travels to shady London bar, where
she speaks to the bartender. After an initial denial, the bartender admits she's Renee Rienne.
Season 5: Episode 2 - "...1..."
At the seedy London bar, Renee tells Sydney that the people who killed Vaughn own the bar that she is working in, and they
have an Operations Center downstairs. Renee adds that since Sydney had blown Renee's cover by being there, she might as well
get what data she can from the servers below. Sydney insisted on joining her.
Sydney and Renee breach the underground
Communications Center. They battle with the guards in an unsuccessful attempt to recover data from the self-destructing computers.
Sydney grabs a video surveillance hard drive behind a panel and they escape. In spite of Renee's hesitation, Sydney convinces
her to accept a phone so they can be in touch. Syd the goes to Marshall to help her gather intel from the hard drive they
Syd meets with her obstetrician for her first ultrasound. Sydney sees her baby for the first time and
gets emotional, especially after realizing that she is on her own.
In the APO office, the team watches video footage
that includes Ivan Curtis, the man who killed Vaughn. Jack explains that Curtis was recorded as dead three years ago, contradicting
the date on the video. Jack concludes that Curtis and Dean have access to high-level resources.
Later, Sydney calls
Marshall to zoom in on a video footage of Curtis dialing a number in his phone. They find out that Curtis was setting up a
meeting with Heinrich Roemer, regarding a package. Syd visits Sloane in his jail cell, and asks for Roemer's location since
SD-6 worked with Roemer in the past. When Sloane advises her not to act out of revenge, Sydney points out that what she is
doing is for her safety and her baby's.
In Amsterdam, Dixon and Weiss meet with Roemer for a "business deal." With
Sydney on video surveillance, Dixon plants cameras in the building. Suddenly, Sydney sees Curtis emerge from a car that just
arrived at the facility.
Roemer leaves Weiss to meet with Curtis in another room. Curtis shoots Roemer and leaves with the package. Hearing the
gun shots, Weiss defends himself when the guard attacks. Dixon runs to Weiss' aid, and Sydney gets into Curtis' car. Curtis
finds Syd is waiting for him, with a gun pointed at his head.
At a CIA safe house, Dixon and Sydney interrogate a
tight-lipped Curtis. In another room, the team consults with Marshall, who warns that the Nuridium that Curtis already possesses
in addition to what they recovered, can create an explosion 50 times Hiroshima. They decide that Curtis needs to be let go
so he can lead them to the rest of the Nuridium.
Dixon goes back to Curtis, hands him a bottle of water, and tries
to make him to reveal where the rest of the Nuridium is. Curtis drinks the water and asks for immunity from his illegal business
activities as well as for Vaughn's murder. When Curtis insults Sydney, she kicks him out of the window into the canal. Syd
and Dixon watch him escape, with tracking serum in his system from drinking the water.
As Jack meets with Thomas Grace,
a new agent he is recruiting for APO, Sydney and Weiss wait for a signal from the tracking serum. Weiss confides in Sydney
that he is considering a position in Washington, and Sydney expresses her happiness. When Weiss voices out his hesitation
to leave due to the recent events in Sydney's life, she insists that he should go. Suddenly, Sydney's laptop beeps: Curtis
is airborne, bound for North Korea.
Using a stealth plane, the APO team approaches Curtis' private jet and silently
board. Dixon and Weiss head to the passenger deck while Sydney stays in the storage area to dismantle what looks like a Nuridium
bomb. Sydney realizes that the container is not a bomb when she finds a body inside. Curtis appears and points a gun at her.
Syd threatens to cut the Nuridium wires.
On the upper deck. Marcus, Weiss and Curtis' men fire at each other. The
pilot is shot in the crossfire and the plane abruptly banks knocking Curtis to the ground. Sydney grabs his gun and points
it at him. As Dixon regains control of the jet, Sydney asks Curtis more questions about Prophet Five, offering to protect
him for information. Curtis refuses to help because he is terrified of the group he is working for. He pulls the cargo door
release button and throws himself out of the plane.
Back in the APO office, Jack tells the team that the Nuridium was
not for an explosive - it was going to be used to power an advanced cryogenic chamber. The body they found remains unidentified
but is under analysis in the DSR. When everyone leaves the briefing room, Sydney tells Jack that she can't go on alone, and
tells him of her ultrasound. Jack reassures her, by saying "I'm here." An appreciative Sydney invites her father to the next
A few minutes later, as Weiss and Sydney are saying their goodbyes, Dixon arrives and announces
that the body had been stolen from the DSR. Sydney calls Renee Rienne and shares the information. Renee tells her she'll see
what she can find out. As Renee crosses the room, she passes by an open container - with the missing body inside, alive.
Season 5: Episode 3 - "The Shed"10/13/05
A woman arrives at a secured lab in Istanbul where scientists in protective suits experiment with a liquid substance. She
shoots a guard and punches in a code to enter the lab. Holding the scientists at gun point, she steals two vials and breaks
a third before locking the guards in and escaping. They die instantly.
In the APO office, Marshall shows a video feed
of this theft to the team. The liquid, he says, is called Substance-33, a deadly nerve agent that kills in seconds. He identifies
the woman as a lackey of Gordon Dean, based on her knowledge of the code and the computer she used to hack it.
traced the hacker's signal to Prague. Jack gives the case to Sydney, Marshall and Tom Grace. Sydney privately asks Jack why
Dixon isn't going. Jack says that Dixon is with Sloane, who was allowed to meet a contact with information about Nadia's cure.
Inside his prison cell, Sloane tells Dixon that he's paying his contact, Dolzhenko, $300,000 for a lead. Later, in
Omsk, Sloane convinces a wary Dixon to allow him to meet Dolzhenko alone. At the meeting, Dolzhenko threatens Sloane with
a gun and steals the money.
In Prague, the APO team tracks the hacker to a coffee shop. Armed with a microprocessor
concealed in a pack of mints, Syd enters the café and speaks to a man with a laptop, assuming he's the hacker. Suddenly, the
signal fades - the real hacker has left the building. Tom and Marshall give chase and capture her.
In a hotel room, the team interrogates the hacker, whose name is Rachel Gibson. Tom catches her transmitting a signal via
her watch, forcing her to admit she's a black ops CIA agent. After she passes a lie detector test validating her story, Syd
says she was in the same situation 13 years ago - when she believed she worked for the country but was actually against it.
When Marshall confirms that Rachel's signal went to Gordon Dean, not the CIA, Rachel decides to cooperate. She agrees
to download the encryption key from Gordon Dean's nearby Vlasska office in order to enable a file transfer from Marshall's
Rachel, thanks to Syd's remote guidance, successfully downloads the encryption key. As Rachel walks to the elevator,
her friend, Peyton, joins her. Sensing Rachel's panic, Sydney receives the key in a quick brush pass. Marshall begins his
Back in Dean's office, Peyton, who has been observing Rachel's change in behavior, alerts Dean. After
spotting the file transfer, Dean and Peyton leave the building and trigger a bomb.
Marshall discovers that Dean had
triggered an EMP that fried all the electronics in range. Tom rushes out the hotel room to help Rachel, who was caught in
the explosion. Explosions continue as Tom makes it to Dean's office. He finds a semi-conscious Rachel beneath the rubble and
cradles her in his arms. Sydney, who arrives shortly after Tom, meets his gaze silently.
Season 5: Episode 4 - Mockingbird10/20/05
Wearing a glitzy outfit, Sydney emerges from a sleek car in Monte Carlo and hands her key to Tom, dressed as the valet.
She goes inside a casino, attracting attention with her boisterous behavior and consecutive gambling wins. Meanwhile, Tom
drives the car to the basement and picks the lock of a maintenance station.
In front of a big crowd, Dixon accuses
Sydney of cheating. When the casino guards bring her into an office, Syd shoots them with a tranquilizer and finds the office
safe. Using a laser cutter and key code that Tom relays through her earpiece, Sydney retrieves a laptop and makes her escape.
she passes by a shipyard, she is stopped by a policeman and at the same time boxed in by another vehicle. Suddenly, a shipping
crane lifts her car hundreds of feet off the ground. Stunned, Sydney answers her ringing phone - it's Gordon Dean saying he
wants Mockingbird back.
At the APO office 72 hours earlier, Rachel confides in Sydney about the guilt she feels for
getting her coworkers killed. Syd turns the blame on Gordon Dean and urges Rachel to rest, but Rachel insists on finishing
her report. Curious about the report, Syd asks what "Mockingbird" means, and Rachel replies that it's her call sign.
an industrial office, Gordon Dean tasks a man named Keach with an unknown assignment. Afterwards, Peyton enters and mentions
that they need money so they can rebuild their offices. Dean types in his password to start an account transfer.
in the APO office, Marshall announces that he has been monitoring Dean's accounts and that recently Dean liquidated all his
finances, putting all the money in one account. Rachel identifies the account as Dean's fail safe account in the Cayman Islands
which can only be accessed in person by answering Dean's protocol questions. The answers are in Dean's servers at his Prague
office - which was destroyed.
Later, Syd asks Rachel to go with her to Prague. Using Marshall's recovery software,
they can reconstruct the protocols to help Dixon and Tom gain access to Dean's account before Dean disappears again. Rachel
In a Federal Building, Boyd Harkin, Special Prosecutor assigned to Sloane's case, lists Sloane's criminal activities, expressing
his disbelief of the pardon agreements that Sloane had gotten in the past. Sloane admits to his wrongdoings and insists that
he is reformed. Later in his cell, Sloane is approached by Dean's man, Keach. Keach says that he has benefactors who can help.
Sloane considers the offer.
With their Czech Intelligence Badges, Sydney and Rachel enter Dean's Prague office and
head to the server room. In spite of Rachel's anxiety and difficult flashbacks, they find the hard drive amidst the debris.
Rachel starts hacking with her laptop.
Earlier than expected, Dixon and Tom are approached at a beach in the Cayman
Islands by Pierpont, the bank's emissary. They follow Pierpont to an unmarked cabana. As guards aim their pistols at Dixon
and Tom, Pierpont begins going through the protocal questions. Syd and Rachel supply answers from Prague with the data they
are slowly recovering, allowing Dixon to empty Dean's account.
Soon after, Dean and Peyton realize that they have
been cleaned out. They conclude that Rachel is the only person who could have done this and make plans to get her back.
at the APO office, the team examines blueprints where Dean's operations archives are stored. They soon realize the archives
lie in an electromagnetic deposit box system. Rachel mentions that she can get into the system by decrypting the building's
network. She volunteers for this next assignment, determined to destroy Gordon Dean.
At Monte Carlo, after Sydney
heads to the casino and Tom brings the car to the basement, he pops the trunk and Rachel goes with him to the maintenance
station. Rachel decrypts the algorithm and passes the code to Tom who relayed it to Sydney. She goes back in the trunk and
Sydney drives off.
In the present time, Syd listens as Dean demands that Mockingbird be delivered in 30 minutes. As
Dixon attempts to rescue them, a camera captures his presence, triggering the hanging car to plummet 20 feet. Syd coaches
Rachel to call Dean and confirm that she is on her way. As Dean listens, he hears a foghorn in the background, revealing Rachel's
actual location. In a flash, Syd tells Rachel to kick open the trunk, grabs Rachel's arm, and uses her laser cutter to hold
them to the magnet - a split second before the car crashes to the ground.
At the hearing, Sloane awaits his sentence.
Surprisingly he's pardoned and is released from the federal penitentiary. Jack looks at him suspiciously.
On the plane

Renee Rienne steals a chemical from an army storage depot in Frankfurt while Jack meets Sloane in a restaurant. Sloane
asks to be reinstated in APO so he can find a cure for Nadia, Jack says he's already made the request but a senator is blocking
In Marseilles, Rienne administers the chemical to a man who's been cryogenically frozen. At the APO office,
Dixon reports that the chemical is Atropine ZX, an experimental substance used to resuscitate gravely injured soldiers. The
thief, who he's identified as Rienne by way of video footage, had also stolen the frozen body from DSR. As Syd volunteers
to speak to her, Jack privately asks Tom to keep an eye on Renee.
Syd and Tom meet Renee in Marseilles and return
to her loft, where the now revived but disoriented man surprises them. He holds a knife to Renee's throat. They realize that
the man is Luc Goursaud, Renee's father, and calm him down. Luc reveals that it was Aldo Desantis who had frozen him. Before
he can speak about Prophet Five, Luc has a seizure and slips into unconsciousness.
Gordon Dean approaches Sloane and
reveals the identity of Senator Lewis, who is refusing his reinstatement. At Dean's suggestion, Sloane wins his reinstatement
by threatening the senator's child.
Jack gives Tom and Syd the name of a doctor they could bring Luc to. Overhearing
the name "Desantis," Rachel remembers that, while working for Dean, she had stored files on Desantis in a San Francisco facility.

Renee recalls that her father had once worked for Desantis, but they had become enemies.
Meanwhile, Dixon and Rachel go to the San Francisco facility and ask to be shown a storeroom, where they leave a case.
Marshall's latest invention crawls out of the case: a spider robot with a tomographic camera. Marshall controls the device
from a remote location, directing the spider to find and scan Desantis' files. Later, they learn that the documents detailed
the manipulation of genetic and neural pathways. They also discover that the brain scans of Luc Goursaud and the man in the
cryogenic chamber were not the same.
Tom returns to the loft and finds a beacon in Luc's cryogenic chamber. He and
Renee use the beacon to alert APO. Syd learns about the beacon through Luc and discovers that he had guided the mercenaries
to the loft. His cover blown, Luc takes Syd hostage. When Renee and Tom return, they realize that Luc is not Renee's father.
Suddenly, the building is blown apart and a helicopter picks up Luc.
Later, in a North Korea hospital, Gordon Dean
meets man formerly known as Luc, referring to him as "Doctor Desantis." Desantis reports that the "woman" is now calling herself
"Renee Rienne" and that she's working with the CIA. Dean assures Desantis that keeping an eye on her won't be a problem.

Season 5: Episode 6 - Solo
Sydney and Rachel watch a scared family from behind a two-way mirror. Rachel gazes at them sadly, and talks about the guilt
that she feels for putting them in danger. Syd assures her that putting them in the witness protection program is the best
way to ensure their safety. Rachel enters the room and embraces her family.
Later, Sloane reports to Dean that Rachel's
family is in the protection program. After Dean makes it clear that Sloane should be prepared to kill them, Dean tells Sloane
to find Janos Vak, a Hungarian weapons designer, using APO resources.
In the briefing room, Jack allows Sloane to
speak. He recommends that they find Vak, who is working on a software program that can intercept and redirect missiles. Sloane
suggests that Vak can be used to bait Dean because they've worked together in the past. Jack shows them a photo of an Algerian
arms dealer who may be a lead. Syd suggests that Renee Rienne can help with penetrating the Algerian underworld.
uncovers intel in a Marseilles warehouse and gives it to Sydney, who offers it to the team. She says that Vak met with a Chinese
official named General Liem Song, who will host an engagement party at the Chinese Consulate in India. Dixon adds that Song
keeps an encrypted copy of his contacts in a safe in his room and this should lead them to Vak.
With Marshall and
Rachel waiting in a van, Syd and Tom crash the party. Realizing that General Song is not leaving his room, Dixon creates a
scene by proposing to the bride-to-be. With the guards busy, Syd slips into Song's room, drugs him and attempts to bypass
the safe. When Marshall says that there is too much shield in the building, Rachel evades a guard and helps Syd by planting
a relay antenna near the garden to boost the signal.
Sloane meets with Dean, who is furious that APO acquired significant intel from the consulate. He demands that the decrypted
data be given to him later that day.
At APO, Dixon tells Syd that Vak has been located on an oil platform in the South
China Sea, and adds that Jack has tapped Rachel for the mission. Dixon adds that Vak is allowed shore leave with a "female
companion" every other weekend. A nervous Rachel listens to their advice and prepares for her first mission alone.

herself, advising her to kill Rachel if they cross paths.
Rachel arrives at the oil facility. A few minutes after
entering Vak's room, she drops her lipstick - which contains a tranquilizer. With Syd's guidance, Rachel improvises and seduces
Vak. After tying him to the bed, she downloads the program from Vak's computer.
Peyton arrives at the facility and
upon realizing that the original software had been destroyed, she runs after Rachel, who makes her way to the heli-deck for

Nadia's safety to bring Sloane in line.
At home, Syd sits in a rocking chair that she bought from a toy store, where,
for a brief moment, she wistfully watched a father take care of his child. She then plays an old mission tape that Marshall
had given her. With the sound of Vaughn's voice playing, she holds the tape close to her belly.
Season 5: Episode 7 - Fait Accompli11/17/05
A very pregnant Sydney chats with a university chancellor in Rome while Renee Rienne tries
to break into the building's underground storage facility. Syd feigns exhaustion and asks for a glass of water, affording
her the chance to steal and duplicate one of his key. She sends the template to Renee electronically. Renee soon finds Dean's
package - and another man about to steal it. She kicks his butt, grabs it and meets Sydney outside.
In her apartment,
Sydney discusses with Rachel the mysterious keycard that is meant for one port among billions. Delivery men arrive with Sydney's
baby's crib yet to be assembled. She sadly reveals to Rachel how she envisioned this moment to be very different from what
had turned out. She leaves the crib disassembled.
After Sloane receives word from Nadia's doctor that she has no hope
for recovery, he gets a call from Gordon Dean demanding his keycard. Later, Sloane apologizes and confesses to Jack and Sydney
that he had been working with Dean. When Jack asks him what changed his mind, Sloane admits that he was hoping that Dean could
help find a cure for Nadia. Now that he knows she's untreatable, he is more than willing to help them bait Dean with the keycard.
In a racetrack at Dubai, Tom and Dixon take out Dean's men while Sloane hands Dean the keycard. Suspicious, he takes
Sloane hostage. The APO team loses track of them when the track's PA system jams their transmissions.

them access to his anonymous boss' communication hub. After revealing that the card will expire in 12 hours, Dean offers to
work with them in exchange for immunity and protection. Syd injects him with a drug to encourage him to talk more freely.
Meanwhile, Sloane meets with a man named Ehrmann, who asks him to eliminate Dean. Sloane
refuses. On cue, Sloane's receives a phone call regarding Nadia's condition. He arrives at the hospital to see Nadia waking
from her five-month coma. She begins convulsing, however, and must be injected with a sedative and returns to her comatose
In the APO office, Dean reveals that the communication hub is located on top of the Glenheim Tower, and says
that the watchman can help. He also apologizes for killing Michael Vaughn and warns Syd that his bosses have plans for her.
In Seattle, Dixon and Tom arrive at the tower and plug the access keycard in a port. As they uplink to Marshall, he
discovers that many of the organizations in the database are part of global governments. Marshall is then locked out of the
system and presented with a riddle. Syd recalls that Dean mentioned a "watchman" who can help.
Sloane slips inside
Dean's interrogation room. Dean says he has the access code and can help take down Prophet Five, but Sloane forces him to
swallow a cyanide pill. Syd discovers his corpse.
Sitting inside a car, Peyton and Ehrmann drink to her success. He
confirms that she now has Dean's operations and warns her of double crossing them. Ehrmann gets out of the car briefly and
meets with Sloane, who confirms the assassination. When Sloane asks when Nadia will be cured, Ehrmann says that they will
need more from Sloane -and points out that Sloane now has hope for Nadia's return. Frustrated and helpless, Sloane watches
In Sydney's apartment, Jack helps Sydney build her baby's crib. Sydney says that taking down the 12 sources
making up Prophet Five will be a challenge since they are embedded inside a global government. Jack remains encouraging and
tells her that they've already started their long journey.
Season 5: Episode 8 - Bob12/7/05
In Siberia, Lukas Basarov plants a bomb in a train car. It explodes and incinerates only the people, leaving the rest of
the car intact. Upon learning of the explosion, Marshall tells the APO team that it was a Micropulse bomb.
Sydney dines with a lady at a Yorkshire garden party. When she spots Elizabeth Powell, the wife of the French ambassador,
she hands her a napkin with a message from Jack. Elizabeth meets Jack in the library and he asks her about the attempts of
French intelligence agency MI-6 to acquire a Micropulse bomb. Elizabeth assures him that MI-6 isn't involved but Jack asks
her to look for a mole in the organization. He says this might lead to info about Prophet Five.
Back at APO, Jack tells
the team that his contact had identified Basarov as the engineer of the Micropulse, and that MI-6 is trying to acquire it
off the books. Basarov, he says, is attending a conference in Brazil and expects to receive a transmission about the sale

in their respective hotel rooms, they start planting cameras for surveillance in Basarov's room.
At the conference,
Rachel asks for Basarov's autograph, which she scans to produce a fingerprint copy. Later, when Basarov steps into the shower,
Rachel breaks into his room and tries to access his laptop using the copied fingerprint. Rachel takes to the window ledge
when someone enters. He can't see that it's Sark bugging the laptop. When he leaves, Rachel puts her own bug in the laptop.
Sark hits on Rachel in a bar and they go back up to his room. Rachel finds an airline ticket indicating the Bahamas as
Sark's next destination. Just then, Rachel's phone vibrates, signaling the receipt of crucial intel. She quickly leaves and
sends the transmission to Marshall for decryption.
Back at the APO office, Rachel confides to Sydney about meeting

Jack over the phone and they make plans for breakfast. Before they hang up, Syd tells her father that she loves him.
Season 5: Episode 9 - The Horizon
Michael Vaughn makes dinner with Sydney in her apartment. He says that she's going to be a great mother. Syd has a vision
- she's bound, with wires attached to her head. The vision is reality -- Vaughn was part of a dream. A doctor injects her
with a chemical.
Flash back two days. Peyton retrieves Vaughn's files at the CIA archives in San Francisco. She calls
Aldo Desantis and arranges a meeting.
At the APO briefing room, Jack informs the team of the breach and identifies
Peyton as part of Prophet Five. She has stolen the files of several agents killed in the line of duty. Syd knows that means
Vaughn. Jack tasks Sloane to oversee Rachel's analysis of the intel and asks Syd to meet with Renee Rienne about Prophet Five.
a warehouse, Peyton's team listens to mission tapes. This leads them to believe that Vaughn had told Sydney crucial information
about Prophet Five, and Sydney might not even be aware of it. Peyton calls Desantis and he recommends a doctor who specializes
in extracting information.
In Madrid, Sydney meets with Renee who confirms that Vaughn didn't keep anything on record
related to Prophet Five, though he was obsessed with it. Just then, they're attacked. Though Renee kills two attackers, Sydney
is abducted and thrown into a van. Renee stops a second van and finds Desantis inside.
Present. Bound in the interrogation
room, Sydney hears the doctor explain to observers that the chemical he injected will force hypnosis: numb the body but keep
the mind lucid. When the doctor asks her to find a happy moment with Michael Vaughn, Syd's subconscious reverts back to the
time Vaughn proposed to her. In this dream state, she gains awareness and frantically tells Vaughn in the dream that Prophet
Five is using her. Vaughn is taken aback at Syd's knowledge of Prophet Five.
Renee contacts APO and tells Jack about Syd's abduction. Jack moves the team to locate Sydney and points out that since
Desantis is involved, this means involvement of Prophet Five experimental medical procedures. Jack asks Sloane if he knows
another Prophet Five contact and Sloane denies it. Later, Sloane tries pleads with his contact for Sydney's release but to
Sydney's memory regression continues. She recalls speaking to Vaughn on a hospital bed minutes before he
dies, and her conscious mind breaks through in this memory and starts talking to Vaughn about Prophet Five once again. She
realizes that the drink she had given him that was recommended by the nurse caused Vaughn's body to crash. As she refuses
to let him die, Vaughn tells her to let him go, since this is the only way to defeat the people holding her captive. She recalls
another memory where they were stuck in a jail cell, and she refuses to let Vaughn go.
Jack interrogates Desantis
-- and cuts an ear off. Just then, Renee discovers a Hungarian address in Desantis' notebook. Jack realizes that one of the
dates listed is Sydney's delivery date. Jack leaves the room and Renee shoots Desantis.
Meanwhile, the doctor once
again urges Sydney to dive into her memory. She recalls a moment where she speaks with Vaughn at a pier. Vaughn again urges
her to let the memory of him go before they hurt her further. In the memory, Syd's phone rings and she hears the doctor's
voice on the other end, asking her to draw a map.
Syd's memory jumps back to one of her first meetings with Vaughn,
where they spoke about SD-6. When Vaughn shows Syd the real map of SD-6, the doctor asks Sydney to read the information on
