Why does anyone trust Sloane?
I mean, from what I’ve read about the history of US intelligence services going back to Project Paperclip and some of the other attempts to use former Nazis as intel sources, the storyline with Sloane is playing out exactly as it should. Bug’s line (was it Bug or someone else, I forget) about how with Sloane taken out the US would lose its most valuable source of intel was telling. Sloane is telling the CIA and the NSC exactly what they want to hear and Sydney is the only one willing to call bullshit on it. As long as enough of the intel pays off then they’ll be willing to give him the rope he needs to hang them. Eventually he’s going to start feeding them garbage (or he’s going to run out of intel, because how much longer is he going to keep getting fresh information from his underworld sources, hello?). Let’s hope Syd is too big a person to say “I told you so.”
How conveeenient that Bug just happens to be a fairly expert pursuit driver. Cross-trained at the farm indeed! She’s a mole for someone, although I’m sort of hoping that she’s a mole for someone on our side (like the Brits of the French) rather than for the Covenant.
Marshall! Dear sweet Marshall, how adorable was he in high school? I want more Marshall ops.
Sark is turning into a professional fly in the ointment. It seems like every time the Bristows are putting something together, Sark is there to mess it up. Cool role for him to play but I’d like to see that expanded as well. I’d also like to see him caught in a compromising position with a go-go boy, but that’s a different show.
