Syd goes on to say that she plans to tell Nadia the truth at some point and Jack thinks she's doing it out of spite. Syd says she's doing it out of respect, which yeah, I don't get. Her mother left her when she was what, seven? And Nadia basically never even KNEW her mother. So, what, these two motherless children are now suddenly all farklempt that their evil bitch of a mother is dead? I mean, yeah, I'd be a wreck if my dad killed my mother, but I actually LIKE my parents. And they've been around since I was born, so one of them killing the other one? Devastating. But if my mom had turned out to be a Russian spy who had married my father just to get secrets out of him and bring me into the world as some sort of cracked-out Rambaldi defense weapon and then disappeared, only to wind up running an evil organization that plotted world destruction -- oh, and tried to shoot me not once but TWICE -- and showed up, years later, in CIA custody, in order to basically mess with me and my life from behind bulletproof glass, and my father killed her in order to stop HER from killing ME? Not so much with the boo-hoo over here, is all I'm saying. At this point, I think Syd would actually congratulate Jack for a job well done. Not Nadia, maybe, sure, because Irina never pointed a gun right in HER face, but Syd? Dude. Give it up already. Your mom was a bad guy. Move on. And go get your dad a beer. And get me one while you're at it. All this plot questioning is making me thirsty.
So, yeah, Syd wants to tell Nadia. Jack doesn't think that's a good idea. Syd needs to tell Nadia the truth. Because telling lies is bad. Jack's all, this ain't about what you need, Syd. And go get me a beer. And Syd's all, no, this is apparently all about what YOU need. And get your own damn beer. Jack's all, um, need I remind you that Nadia has sworn to kill the man responsible for your mom's death? Syd's all, hey, how'd you know that? Were you at the Russian Mausoleum of Murdered Mommies at the same time we were? Jack's all, never mind how I know. Sometimes I just know things. Especially if it furthers the plot and makes me seem even more of a bastard than I already appear to be. Nadia comes out on the patio. Syd and Jack whistle and put their hands in their pockets and pretend to be talking about the weather. Nadia asks her sister where the candles are, because it's cake time. Syd just says she'll be right there and Nadia goes back to flirting with Weiss.
