Kendall asks if that's when she turned to the CIA. Not yet. She had to get SD-6's trust back first. Previously on Alias: A Lola-wigged Sydney brought a device created by Rambaldi to Sloane in order to prove her loyalty. Then she turned to the CIA and met Agent Hunky Giant Forehead Man. She thought it would be easy to take down SD-6, but when Vaughn showed her a huge map of all their connections, she realized she'd be in for the long haul. Soon after that, she discovered that Spy Daddy was doing the exact same thing, serving as a double agent for the CIA within SD-6. Kendall thinks this is all so very convenient. He's just not willing to go with it. He wants to know why Spy Daddy would recruit Sydney into this. She explains that it was Sloane who was responsible. The Bristows were actually friends with the Sloanes before the whole spy thing came up. Kendall asks why Sloane wanted her. Sydney doesn't know. The two of them argue about whether or not Spy Daddy was actually the one who brought her in. Sydney gets pissy and defensive. She throws a big huge tantrum about how she's being cooperative, but they're questioning her honor and loyalty. She rants that they're holding her because of some old prophecy found in a book that they wouldn't even know about if Sydney hadn't recovered it for them. Kendall doesn't know how to handle a hissyfit, so he calls a break. Sydney doesn't want to stop, and keeps yelling that she wants to finish the questions so she can go, but the tribunal ignores her and leaves.
Back at the CIA offices, Sean plays with a yo-yo as Agent Anxious reads through the prophecy again. Your tax dollars at work, Americans. It turns out that there are parts of the prophecy they didn't reveal last episode. How conveeeenient. Vaughn wonders what the heck "vulgar costs" are (I think it's the money you put in strippers' g-strings), and reads this other part: "This woman, without pretense, will have had her effect, never having seen the beauty of my sky behind Mount [something Italian that sounds like 'Sebacio']. Perhaps a single glance would have quelled her fire." Sigh. Pause. Google. "Mountains in Italy." Okay, none of the lists I found have anything remotely close to Sebacio. I think they made it up, just to screw with me. Well, fine, it's Mount Sebacio. Sean tells Vaughn to shut up because "the yo-yo is sleeping." "The Yo-Yo Is Sleeping" is my favorite anti-war folk song. Vaughn comments that Rambaldi was born near Mount Sebacio; then he seems to come to some sort of realization, and rushes off.
