I LOVE “Mirage” (S4). It’s my favourite in the whole series, better in fact than the 2-hour premiere.

Oh how Jack does love to reduce me to tears. This episode drove the point home that Sydney’s relationship with her father is truly special. I think Sydney realized again how important her father is to her, no matter what he’s done in the past, or how many secrets he keeps from her.

After seeing “In Dreams”, I understand how Sloane could survive Nadia’s death.

He had already chosen Rambaldi over her, yes, but it was because of Emily and Jacquelyn that he made that choice in the first place. He allowed Rambaldi’s ideology into his life because he wanted to fill the void he had in his heart, after Jacquelyn’s death.

But the way he said “No” to Nadia’s face and stepped away from her towards Emily and Jacquelyn, it reminded me of how her ghost walked out on Sloane in the series finale.

Reciprocation.

I just saw the last episode of “Jericho”: “Patriots And Tyrants”. What a ride!

What a journey…

I’ll sorely miss this TV series. I wish there were more shows like “Jericho”.

Stirring performances, sharp storytelling and they even gave me closure even though “Jericho” has already been put in the ground.

When I watched “Ice” (Episode 4, Season 4 of “Alias”), and saw that touching scene between Jack Bristow and Nadia, I cried. And I haven’t cried watching “Alias” in awhile, let me tell ya’. I also don’t care much for Season 4, but that’s another story.

Sometimes Jack can say the loveliest, most stirring things, and this was one of those moments when he melted my heart. He proved to Nadia that he isn’t so “cold”, which was one of the young woman’s initial deductions of Sydney’s father’s disposition. For the first time, I wished that Nadia had been Jack’s daughter, just like how Sydney is. Perhaps—No, no, he will have kept Nadia safe, alive. She would have survived Rambaldi and Sloane. Like how Sydney did.

Jack would’ve made a perfect guardian for Nadia, and trust me she could’ve used one, seeing as how dangerous the world of “Alias” is.

In my mind’s eye, as I was listening to their conversation, I could’ve imagined that Nadia was Jack’s daughter, and that she reached out for a hug, with a weak “Dad…”, tears in her eyes. Nadia is starved for affection so, for me, the image conjured didn’t require a far stretch of my imagination.

Sadly, Nadia is the embodiment of one of Irina’s greatest betrayals of Jack, which just about shattered my fantasy into a million pieces. Jack can’t bring himself to love this broken, hurt woman-child because of what she represents…and I can hardly blame him, seeing as how he still seems to be fond of Irina. How that’s possible is beyond me, but, then again, I’m not an earnest Jack/Irina shipper, although I have no problem with the ship.

Which brings me to my second “Alias” OTP: Vaughn/Nadia.

Vaughn’s my second ‘guardian’ candidate for Nadia. Nadia is a legacy of Bill Vaughn’s work as an agent, so I believe it’s only fitting that Vaughn continue his late father’s efforts. Unromantic, I know, but I haven’t come to the soppy part, yet.

Maybe next time *nods sagely*
