Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Sydney (Jennifer Garner) believes that computer wonk-turned-spy Marshall Flinkman (Kevin Weisman) is safely ensconced in CIA headquarters. In truth, however, Marshall has been captured and is being tortured by a bespectacled interrogator (Ric Young) who is determined to retrieve the Echelon Satellite code that Marshall has committed to memory. Once she realizes how much danger her co-worker is in, Sydney teams with Dixon (Carl Lumbly) for a daring escape plan. And back at SD-6's Credit Dauphine headquarters, Alliance counterintelligence head Ariana Kane (Faye Dunaway) revokes Jack's (Victor Garber) security clearance, part of an effort to link Jack with a murder and an extortion plot.
