Back with Sydney, she knocks out a waitress and steals her uniform. Jack checks in with Syd and tells her he needs to sign off. Syd says she can handle this without him and wishes him luck. He gets out of his car and walks up the steps to the Capitol building. He turns in front of a group of men and asks a passing civilian to take his picture "for [my] granddaughter." The person obliges and, after instructing Jack to smile, something he rarely does and certainly won't do on command from a stranger, gets a shot of Jack and the guy behind him, which is the point, of course.
Syd heads out into the party, and the maitre d' gets all up in her business and Syd has to fake an explanation about covering for "Debbie" and the guy buys it, but before Syd can get the shot of the Prophet people, the bartender discovers Debbie's downed body and he tattles on Syd. She knocks down the maitre d' and flails off with two guards in pursuit. She runs up to the rooftop, hooks herself up to a relay, jumps off the roof, and manages to take a picture of the Prophet duo who just happen to be sitting in front of the window that Syd just happens to be flinging past. Heh. Totally implausible, but totally fun. Just what I like about this show. We cut to Sydney, walking into the Conference Room of Endless Expositions. She sticks up the pictures she took and turns to Jack and Marshall. "Now we know who we're fighting," she says with steely determination.
And now? Now is the time on Alias when we dance. For the very last time.
After the break, we catch up with the Appleseed Gang as Jack briefs them on The Twelve. He says that their global influence is well, global. Yes, he really says that. I certainly hope Victor Garber was heavily drunk during this scene because that's the only way I can see him getting through some of these lines without going, "Really? NO REALLY? 'Their global influence is GLOBAL'? Are you fucking kidding me with this shit? Thank GOD this is over. MORE MARTINIS."
Getty asks why they don't just make their move and start arresting the members. Jack says they can't because if they arrest them individually, they run the risk of tipping off the others. Jack tasks Marshall with creating a program that can track the movements of all the members. "Oh, no problem," says Marshall. "That should only take me a lifetime." Jack shoots him a look. Marshall says he'll get right on that. Heh. Syd asks, "What about Sloane?" Jack says they're working under the assumption that Sloane is working for The Twelve. "We take them down," says Jack, "and we get to him."
