Apple Store. Sydney watches as Jack meets with Rachel in his office. She walks out and meets up with Sydney. "Your father's kind of scary," says Rachel. Hee. "Tell me about it," quips Sydney. Hee hee. Syd tells her that Rachel did a good job and Rachel thanks her for being in her head during the mission. Syd knows how important that voice can be, seeing as Vaughn talked her through all her early missions at the CIA. "Sometimes his voice was all that kept me going." "I wish I could've met him," says Rachel. Syd looks like she's about to cry, so she leaves, saying she'll see Rachel tomorrow. Guess they're not roomies anymore, huh?
"The Water Is Wide" comes on the soundtrack, so you know it's time for a poignant music montage. Rachel looks out across the office and catches Getty's eye, and he gives her a little "You done good" nod of the head. Aw. Sloane visits Nadia at the hospital and this time he actually enters the room and goes to her. He takes her hand, and his face is a mask of pain. Aw. Rachel sits at her desk and finds a picture of her family in her drawer. Aw. We hear Vaughn asking Syd via comms if she's okay. Syd says she is, but she's having trouble picking the lock because her fingers are numb. Vaughn tells her that she's almost home. The camera pans over and Syd is sitting in her new rocking chair, playing the tape against her belly so her baby can hear its daddy's voice. Aw. It's such a sweet moment that I won't mention that the voice on the tape totally doesn't sound like Michael Vartan. I won't mention that at all.
Next time on Alias: Syd dresses up as a pregnant lady (no!) and Rachel kicks Gordo's ass.
