Plane of Potential Lesbian Love. What? I'm not saying Rachel's a lesbian. I'm just saying that she's looking at Syd like she's a bacon double cheeseburger with special sauce and a side of fries and might even be smacking her lips a bit. Everyone on the plane is sleeping except for Rachel. She doesn't know how they can all sleep after what they've been through. "It's never gonna be over, is it?" asks Rachel. "I'm gonna be with you awhile." Syd looks over at her as if to say, "Well, you're not 'with' with me, are you? I mean, unless you want to move in with me and help me raise my dead fiancé's baby and heeeeey! That's not a bad idea! Bring your stuff over tomorrow! We'll bake! And, no, you may not kiss me. But you can rub my feet. Promise!" Oh, okay, Syd just says that Rachel will be with them for as long as it takes for her to be safe. Rachel asks how long that will be; Syd has no idea. But she knows that Rachel can't leave until they bring in Dean. "It's never gonna be safe, is it?" says Rachel, referring to the fact that, even if they bring in Dean, there will still be bad guys out there. "I guess we'll have to bring 'em all down," grits Syd.
Speaking of bringing 'em all down, Sloane is walking out of the hearing room a free man. He passes Post-Cheating Ethan Hawke, who gets up and follows him out the door to freedom. Oooooh, I love Ambiguously Evil Sloane!
Next on Alias: Who is in THE BOX? No, seriously. We find out. Or we think we find out. Or who knows? I just know that if next week's episode continues to exhibit signs of not sucking, we'll be on a winning streak and I'll have to go around wearing the same pair of socks until the winning streak ends or something. DON'T THINK I WON'T DO IT.
