Storyline

Sydney and Vaughn tell Jack about Sloane's alleged involvement in Vaughn's search for his father and Irina's contract on Sydney's life. After cornering Sloane, they both conclude that someone is framing him. The APO team set a trap to catch the fake A. Sloane, but they fail. Once they realize what "Arvin Clone" is after, Sloane suggests to step down, temporarily. However, Sydney reluctantly convinces him to stay on the case, since he may the only person able to anticipate "Arvin Clone"'s next move. But Nadia fears that this pursuit may revive her father's past obsession: Rambaldi. Written by Anonymous

Goofs

The cutting of the elevator cable shouldn't have worked as all elevators have emergency brakes (purely mechanical, with no need of electrical energy) fitted for in case the main cable is ever severed. It should have come to a halt a few floors down. See more »

Quotes

Michael Vaughn: Roberts, the man you are about to see is your former employer, Arvin Sloane. All we need you to do is make a positive ID.
[Vaughn sits Roberts in a chair and has him look through a window at the real Arvin Sloane]
Michael Vaughn: Well...
Roberts: Huh...
Michael Vaughn: What does that mean?
Roberts: That dude is him, sort... Sort of
Jack Bristow: Is it him or not?
Roberts: I mean, yeah, it's him, then it's not. You know what I'm sayin'?
Sydney Bristow: It's not him...
Roberts: But almost him. But it's wild, it's like they don't even look that much alike. But... I don't know; this is freaky ...

Arvin Clone (or Marvin Sloane?)
15 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

Arvin Clone, a guy who looks like Arvin Sloane but not too much (to quote a character, "they both give me the creeps") orders the kidnapping of a female nuclear scientist / engineer to help him build a machine according to Rambaldi's instructions. When the real Sloane convinces the rest of the APO crew that he is innocent of the crimes that have been committed in his name lately, they all begin searching for the clone. And who better to predict his next move that Sloane himself? Ron Rifkin gives yet another brilliant performance in this episode: he can make you laugh (with his barely disguised joy at being allowed to get involved with Rambaldi again), move you to tears (when he tries to convince Nadia that his past obsessions are over), and chill you to the bone with an outburst at the end that, at the hands of a lesser actor, would come across as way over-the-top. When he says "Immortality? You fool!", it's like the writers are speaking directly to the audience: "You think you have the ultimate Rambaldi secret figured out? Think again". As for Arvin Clone, he is potentially just the kind of mysterious, puzzling, elusive antagonist that this season was lacking after the departures of Irina Derevko, Sark and Lauren. *** out of 4.
