On Alias "Endgame":

I'm really enjoying Alias this season, although it does seem like the relationship between Vaughan and Sidney could very easily veer into the overly sappy. Not saying I want them to suddenly develop relationship problems or anything like that, but a few less adoring moments where they're portrayed as the perfect couple might not be a bad idea. Of course, that said, I thought the drawer conversation this week was a lot of fun. Some interesting revelations about the Christian Slater character and his wife, pushing credibility to almost ludicrous levels but still working because that kind of thing happens in the Alias universe. And the ending... we could all see it coming the moment we saw Sloane's face, but it was still just brutal.

Does anyone else think that the "new" Francie is Anna Espinosa, formerly of K Directorate? Something about her expressions (which is a tribute to the actress who plays Francie), plus I think it would be a really neat little twist. I'm hoping that this revelation about who Francie is will come sooner rather than later.
