Shows airplane flying. Shows airplane hatch opening. Nadia, Irina, Vaughn, Jack, and Sydney all jump out of the hatch. And into Savogda. Nighttime. There is a big red ball hovering over Savogda. Team meets up on the ground, in the streets. There are many wrecked vehicles.
Jack: DSR team is supposed to be here. Contact APO.
APO. Marshall and Weiss.
Marshall: We’ve got Mr. Bristow on sat-comm.
Weiss: Jack, what’s your situation?
Jack: We’re at the rendevous point, still waiting on the DSR team. We’ll give them 5 more minutes and then move on. Have we made any progress with the Russians?
Weiss: No. Director Chase is in Washington. They’ve organized a coalition to pressure the Russians to call off the air strike, but so far, no luck.
Jack: They do understand that destroying the device with conventional explosives will cause enough toxic fallout to make Chernobyl look like a kitchen fire?
Weiss: Yeah, their official position is they’re not buying it, which gives you about 2 hours (both Marshall and Weiss look at their watches) to deactivate the device.
Sydney: Dad, we got a signal from the DSR team’s transponder. They’re a block and a half away.
Jack (into phone): We’ll be in touch.
Marshall: The Russians rely on the Milsat satellite network to vector the bombs, right? If I can hack into it, I can shut it down.
Weiss: And violate several thousand international laws? (whoohoo let’s go for it)
Marshall: We’re talking about the end of the world. I’m not worried about a tribunal.
Weill: That’s a good point. Gogogogo
Elena’s hangout. Sloane’s here too. Man walks up to Elena.
Man: It’s operational.
Elena: Have you notified our cells?
Man: We’re on schedule.
Elena: Good. (Man leaves. Pause. Elena turns to Sloane. ) It won’t be long before you see her again. I know Nadia. She’s gonna make us proud.
Team walking along streets.
Sydney: The signal’s coming from right here.
They find the DSR vehicle with an arm inside. They grimace
Jack: We should keep moving.
Rattling sounds. Sydney and Vaughn hold up tranq guns. Brodien comes around the bend.
Brodien: Bristow? Oh for G-d’s sakes, what are you- I thought you were relieved of duty.
Sydney: Well, don’t believe everything you hear.
Vaughn: What happened here?
Brodien: Uh, let’s just say those tranqs-they’re not gonna do you any good. Not on the infected. They’re like rabid dogs. They travel in packs. (pulls out machine guns for everyone) It only took them one night to wipe out my entire team.
Jack: You’re the last one alive?
Brodien: I don’t know how many there are out there. Hundreds, could be thousands.
Sydney: What about the resat?
Brodien: Dead if they’re lucky. When there’s no one left to kill they turn on each other. The municipal water supply was tainted. And the device is broadcasting a subaudible frequency off any spectrum. Anyone within the radius of the signal who drank the water has been psychologically altered.
Nadia: Are we gonna just shoot them?
Brodien: Yes. I mean, It’s either them or us. They’re already gone anyway. We’re putting them out of their misery. There is no cure. Once you’re infected, there’s no reversing the symptoms.
Jack: What have you learned about the device?
Brodien: Uhhh, Best we can tell, the epicenter is, uh, 4 miles northwest. (pulls out a map) Over the Oransky building. Right here.
Jack: In that case, the control center for the device should be located on the rooftop.
Brodien: I’ve taken out the city’s power grid. The device keeps running.
Nadia: Irina knows how to bring it down safely.
Brodien: Irina? Irina Derevko? (stares at her)
Irina: The device has been modified to run off an internal energy source. We need to get to the roof of that building.
Brodien: Okay. Uhh, right. But we can’t drive. All the roads are closed off with gridlock.
Sydney: We can get through town through the subway tunnels. It’s a straight shot to the Oransky building. There should be an emergency battery system to power up the cars.
Brodien: Those tunnels are pitch black. There’s only one way in or out.
Sydney: I’m not saying I’m looking forward to it.
Brodien: All right. Let’s go.
They continue walking. Camera pans to show one of Elena’s men.
Man: (into radio) They’re here.
Elena: (to Sloane) Less than 2 hours before the Russians launch their strike. Nothing can stop us.
Sloane: Regardless, we should eliminate all possibility. I’ll lead the assault team. ( He turns to leave)
Sloane: (turns back) What about Nadia?
Elena: Bring her back. Give her the option to join us.
Sloane (exasperated): I was going to. (to assault team) Let’s go.
Marshall trying to hack into Russian network. Weiss is close by.
Marshall: Dammit. It’s too secure. I can’t get in from the outside. Unless we have a valid access code, this isn’t gonna work.
Weill: So get an access code.
Marshall: Only Russian military officials have access codes to those.
Weiss: We’ve managed harder. Come on, there’s got to be a way. What would Jack do in this situation? Jack is the king of this sort of thing. (hehe it rhymes)
Marshall: Well, first he’d probably glower a bit, right? And then he’d probably blackmail or torture somebody. Right? (he gets that lightbulb facial expression) You’re a genius. You, Eric Weiss are a genius.
Marshall and Weiss in Sloane’s office looking at the Blackwell Index.
Weiss: I thought Sloane turned the Blackwell Index over to Langley.
Marshall: He didn’t. It’s complicated.
Weiss: Sloane’s evil. Why wouldn’t he hold on to blackmail material on world leaders.
Marshall: Okay, here it is. Russian Deputy of Defense, Minister Karkov. (highlights name on the index, opens files) We find the right dirt, he’ll be begging to give us the code.
Weiss: I think we found your passion. What’s this guy into?
Marshall: Let’s take a look. (clicks file) Whoah, hello.
Weiss: Is that a. . .
Marshall: I hope not.
Jack and team walking along the street. Jack on the phone.
Weiss: Jack, we found a Russian minister off the Blackwell Index who can get us access to the Milsat. We’ll keep you posted.
Jack (to Irina): Marshall and Weiss are working on the Russians. Stubborn bunch, your countrymen.
Irina: We like to control our own fate. You never put much faith in that, did you? Fate, destiny.
Jack: About as much faith as I put in horoscopes, fortune cookies.
Irina: Look. (We see and hear a horse walking along the street. The horse is white, but appears red because of reflection of Rambaldi ball.) Rambaldi wrote, “when bloodred horses run through the streetsand angels fall from the sky, the Chosen One and the Passenger will clash. And only one of them will survive.”
Jack: You really are through the looking glass, aren’t you. When I see angels fall from the sky, I’ll start to worry.
Irina: I just can’t shake the feeling that tonight, one of my daughters will perish.
The team reaches a gate.
Brodien: This is it. (Uses a blowtorch to open lock on gate.)
Sydney: Hey, Brodien. It looks like the ear heeled up pretty nicely.
Brodien: Yeah, and if you plan on putting any more holes in me, just go ahead and tell me now. All right? (Opens gate)
Infected guy, who was waiting inside the gate, stabs Brodien with a long metal pole. Sydney and Nadia shoot Infected guy. Sydney rushes over to Brodien.
Sydney: Hang in there.
Brodien: Go. End this. (dies)
Jack: We should move. Now! (enters gate, everyone follows)
All are on radios.
Underground subway. Switching room. Nadia and Sydney walk in with flashlights.
Sydney: We found the switching room. We’ll set green lights all the way down the line.
Jack is in the subway. There are dead people.
Jack: It should only take a few minutes to redirect the power to the drive wheels. How are we on the brakes?
Vaughn is working underneath the subway.
Vaughn: The calipers have seized. Must have happened when the power shut down. But if we cut the hydraulic lines and bleed the fluid, they should disengage, but we’ll have no manual topping power.
Nadia: We can set the track switch to trigger an emergency stop.
Jack: Right. Be careful out there.
Vaughn and Irina are working on the brakes.
Irina: You shouldn’t wait.
Vaughn: For what?
Irina: I saw the ring.
Vaughn: Yeah, you know what? You killed my father. The way I see it, I don’t have to ask for your blessings.
Irina: Despite that, you may have them. Along with some advice.
Vaughn: Marital advice from you. Wondeful. Like what, don’t betray your spouse?
Irina: Yeah, that’d be one of them. But even between a husband and a wife, some secrets are acceptable. However, your activities are not.
Vaughn: What are you talking about?
Irina: You’re not as covert as you like to think. Consider my life an object lesson. If you don’t want to end up like Jack and me, tell Sydney the truth.
Back to Nadia and Sydney in the switching room, flipping switches.
Nadia: It’s not catching.
Sydney: They’re at either end of the platform. Maybe when the train’s at the station, they have to be set manually. We can do it.
Nadia: Okay. (sighs)
Sydney: You still feeling it too?
Nadia: Like something awful’s going to happen.
Sydney: I know. (pause) Vaughn asked me to marry him.
Nadia: Sydney. . .That’s amazing.
Sydney: I’m sure there are plenty of brides who want to kill their maid of honor. I’m not one of them.
Sydney: I’ll take the switch in front. (they leave the switching room)
APO Weiss and Marshall on the phone. Speaking Russian, badly.
Weiss: May I speak to Deputy Minister Karkov?
Voice: Please hold.
Karkov: This is Minister Karkov. To whom am I speaking.
Weiss: Careful. Be listening. We are needing your code of Milsat network.
Karkov: Whoever this is your Russian is awful.
Marshall (covers phone): (In English, half to Weiss, half to himself, half to Karkov) I wrote this program in five minutes, you perv.
Weiss: (in English) I’m gonna make this real simple for you. We need your Milsat access codes. Either give it to us now, or every major news organization will get the tuva photos by morning.
Karkov: (in English) A, I don’t know what you’re talking about. B, I’m running a trace on this call.
Weiss: Great. I look forward to meeting you. While I’ve got you on the line, let me ask you-what’s the significance of the green balloons. (pause, Marhall gives a thumbs up)
Karkov: Alpha-5-7-2-8-1-1-black. Now let me be clear. If those photos ever-
Weiss: Oh, sure thing, Minister. Or should I call you, “cowboy.”? ( Marshall and Weiss both laugh)
Marshall: Got it.
Jack alone in subway. There are dead people. A cell phone rings. Jack finds it and answers.
Woman: (in Russian??): Leonid? Thank G-d, What’s happening out there? I’ve been watching the news and they-
Jack: I’m sorry. Leonid is dead. (woman cries, Jack puts cell phone away)
APO Marshall and Weiss hacking into computer.
Marshall: Okay, code’s good. We’re in.
Marshall: Okay. Wait a second. This is odd. (computer shows map of world with arrows all over it)
Weiss: What? What’s odd?
Marshall: Well, there is a signal coming out of Savogda. Someone’s trying to uplink an encrypted broadcast connect to the Russians’ network.
Weiss: It could be Elena. But why would she broadcast over a closed network? Can you find out?
Marshall: Let me see.
Jack in subway. Vaughn and Irina come in.
Vaughn: Jack, we cut the breaklines. As soon as you restore power, we’ll be good to roll.
Jack: I’m almost done here. Give me a sec. ( He continues to work with wires)
Cuts to Nadia walking in front of the subway train, with flashlight. She finds the brake switches.
Cuts back to Jack. He gets the power to work.
Irina: Need any help?
Jack: No just another minute.
Sydney enters the train.
Irina: Where’s Nadia?
Sydney: She isn’t back yet?
Nadia is trying to lift the brake switches. She hears screams. \
Nadia: Guys, they’re coming.
Vaughn: Nadia, get out of there! (runs down the train)
Nadia: Got it.
Train starts to move, Nadia starts to run. Behind her is a mob of infected people. Zombies.
Sydney: (follows Vaughn) Nadia! Vaughn! (Opens th back door of the train) Nadia! Nadia! (Nadia is running, Vaughn shoots at zombies.) Dad, Stop the train!
Jack: Sydney, we can’t!
Sydney: Stop the damn train! Nadia! (holds out her arm, Nadia keeps running)
Sydney: Come here! Come here!
Sydney’s and Nadia’s fingers touch. Nadia gets tackled by a zombie. Hmmm, someone yells, not sure who, Nadia or Sydney. Other zombies tackle Nadia. Vaughn pulls Sydney back inside the train.
Inside subway train.
Irina: (to Sydney) Your sister’s alive.
Sloane and assault team run along the subway stations. Sloane kills the assault team.
Jack: (in subway train) Hold on! We’re coming into the station.
The wheels screech. Subway doors open. Sloane is aiming his gun at them. They aim their guns at him and walk out of subway train. They see the dead assault team.
Sloane: These are Elena’s men, sent here to kill you.
Jack: I suppose you’re expecting a thank-you.
Sloane: There’s no time for sarcasm, Jack. Elena’s men have already primed the world’s drinking water. No one else can stop her if we don’t get to her within the next few hours.
Sydney: Wait a minute, you expect us to believe that you came here to help us?, please.
Sloane: I have never been disingenuous with you on this, Sydney. I allied myself with Elena in order to put an end to her plan, to shoulder the risk myself. But she’s built in security devices, and I haven’t had the time.
Jack: I’ve heard quite enough, Arvin.
Sloane: Jack, I’ve been inside the operation. If you want to stop Elena, this is how we’re gonna do it. She’s secured herself inside an antiquated COG facility, below the Oransky building. Sydney, Vaughn, open a line to APO. Jack, you take point. Irina, forgive me, but there’s no time for pleasantries-(punched by Jack, and knocked out)
Jack: You’re no longer in charge of this team.
Weiss: Jack we might have a breakthrough. Marshall detected a signal coming out of the city. We believe Elena is trying to uplink to the milsat network.
Sydney: Do we know why?
Marshall: I decoded the signal-it’s a subaudible frequency below the range of human hearing, the same frequency being used by the Mueller device. She’s using the Russian satellite network to distribute that frequency worldwide.
Jack: If she succeeds, the effects we’re seeing will occur globally, everywhere the water’s been primed.
Marshall (frantic): I know I told you there were 2 hours before the air strike, but the instant the Russians scramble those bombers, the satellite network, it’s going to go online. The minute that happens, that signal-It’s going to be broadcast. She is super tricky-counting on the Russian air strike all along.
Sydney: How much time do we have?
Marshall: 40 minutes, give or take.
Irina: We need to get to the roof of that building and shut down the device.
Jack: (to Marshall) Can you send us intel on the facility-thermal scans?
Marshall: Okay, just give me a sec. (opens files at computer) The Meuller device is causing too much interference. The best I can do is building blueprints. Uploading now.
Vaughn: (his cell phone rings) Got it?
Jack: Put in a call to Chase-Washington should be kept up to speed so they can order foreign leadership to begin preparations.
Weiss: Good luck.
Jack: Yeah, likewise.
Vaughn: Our best bet is the northwest entrance. We can approach it through the alley without being seen.
Sydney: If she anticipated that, all her defenses would be there.
Jack: (to Sloane) You’re going to help us get inside that building and up to the roof. We have 40 minutes.
Sloane: Of course.
Jack: If we fail, I will personally put a bullet in your skull. (How many times has he said that?)
Sloane: You won’t have to. I can take you up to the roof. It’s not a problem, Elena left it unguarded. Once you disable the device, the toxins that are inside will dissipate into the atmosphere. What you’re talking about is a suicide mission.
Irina: Just get me to the roof. I can cut the wire to the relay- reverse the ionization. Aside from the impact, the water will be harmless.
Sloane: I’ll take you, but your sister changed the wiring scene. It’s one of her fail-safes.
Irina: In that case, take me to my sister.
Sloane: I will. Where’s Nadia?
Nadia fighting the mob of zombies wither her gun.
Nadia: (into radio) Do you copy? Can anybody hear me? (starts climbing up ladder) Sydney! (climbs back up to the street.
She walks along the street, and comes across some angel statues that must have fallen off a church or something.
Guy: Hello? Is somebody there? Help me! Please. (he’s sitting on some steps) Don”t hurt me!
Nadia: What happened to you?
Guy: My leg- I think it’s broken. Thank G-d. I’ve been here for hours.
Nadia: It was pretty risky, going out like you did. How did you know I wasn’t one of them?
Guy: Because (holds a gun up to her face) I know who you are.
Elena’s hideout. Elena has Nadia tied up to a chair.
Elena: Sweetheart. I’m sorry it had to be done this way. I hope you understand. I never wanted to hurt you. I never wanted children of my own, Nadia. Then you came along. And ever since then, no matter how far I was from you, I always thought of you as my daughter. (puts her hand on Nadia’s cheek)
Nadia: (pulls back roughly) Don’t touch me!
Elena: You have a choice. You can embrace your anger and hate me or you can join me. The flood has begun. (she holds Nadia’s head in place) Only precious few will survive. (Looks at a map on wall with pins sticking out of it. Pins probably show places where contaminated water was distributed.) There she is. I see her now-your mother. She used to look at me with those eyes. (Nadia starts to cry.) It’s time that you accept the life you have ahead of you. I know it’s not easy. Greatness never is.
Nadia: You’re right. (Tears stream down her face) I see my future. Two minutes from now, I see myself killing you. (Elena hits her) The only reason you want me to be on your side is because you believe I’m the one to stop Sydney Bristow. But she’s my sister. You’re nothing to me.
Elena: I am sorry you feel that way. (goes to get a syringe and needle)
Nadia: What’s that?
Elena: Don’t worry, darling. It’s only tap water.
Nadia: I will never betray my sister.
Elena: We’ll see. (she injects the fluid right in the middle of the Rambaldi eye that Ana had branded on her neck, she screams)
We’re probably in the Oransky building. Sydney is walking to go to the roof when Vaughn comes up behind her. Irina, Jack, and Sloane are a bit further away.
Sydney: Did I forget something?
Vaughn: Yeah, me- I’m coming with you.
Sydney: Did my dad change the plans?
Vaughn: No, I did. I’m joining you on the roof.
Sydney: It’s a one-person job. My mom will relay up the wiring instructions. I can disarm the device myself.
Vaughn: You can’t outrun the wall of water that thing’s gonna turn into.
Sydney: How are you going to help me?
Vaughn: We’ll figure something out. You’ll run faster if I’m chasing you.
Sydney: I’ll be fine. And they need you in the bunker. If we don’t get Elena. . .
Sydney: Don’t say it. I’ll see you in a few minutes.
Sydney (starts walking away, but turns back): Just in case, yes.
Sydney: (close to tears) Yeah, I want to marry you.
They kiss. Vaughn pulls out the ring. Sydney takes it and puts it on.
Sydney: It’s perfect. So are you. (they kiss again)
Sydney: I’ll see you.
Vaughn: I know.
Sydney turns and leaves. In the elevator, she fingers the ring.
Marshall: (Into phone) That’s right, a polymorphic computer virus capable of infecting military-grade encryption. You think you can handle that? Not 10 minutes- I need it now! Just get it done, okay? Thank you.
Weiss: Are we close?
Marshall: That’s not really a helpful question right now okay?
Weiss: Don’t blame yourself. This satellite network was designed to withstand World War III. I just got off the phone with my buddy in the secret service. They’ve initiated the “continuity of government” protocol. The president, his cabinet, their family members-all being evacuated to underground command centers. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I’ve kidded myself, but I thought maybe I’d be on the list.
Marshall: Yeah. It’s kind of like high school all over again. The cool kids are having a party, and I’m not invited.
Weiss: All right, there’s still time left. Let’s not give up on them yet.
Marshall (picks up cell phone, dials): Hey, honey. Hi, uuuh, no, I don’t have a lot of time. I just- I just wanted to tell you I love you. I don’t get to tell you that often enough. No, I haven’t been drinking. I’m just- I’m just gonna be home early tonight, okay? Bye.
Man: Russian bombers are taxing to the runway.
Elena: Have you uploaded the signal?
Man: Once Milsat is online, the signal will be broadcast worldwide. Sloane’s back.
Shows video footage of Sloane helping someone to walk. Man goes running to greet Sloane. Sloane shoots Man dead. Vaughn, Jack, and Irina follow Sloane to Elena.
Irina: (to Elena) Hello, sis. Ever since you were 11, there’s something I wanted to do. (PUNCH. Elena falls to the ground.) Now.
Sloane picks Elena up and ties her to a chair. Vaughn and Jack go to the computer.
Jack: Can’t retract the signal from this terminal. (to Vaughn) Find the relay room and destroy it.
Back to Sydney on roof of the Oranskey building. She stares up at the Mueller device and the big red ball. She finds and opens a hatch, which shows a great mass of wires. She turns around and sees Nadia.
Sydney: Nadia! Nadia, it’s me. (Nadia’s eyes glow red) It’s Sydney. I don’t want to hurt you. (Starts backing up while Nadia continues to advance.)
Jack (on comms): Sydney, what’s happening?
Sydney: It’s Nadia, she’s guarding the device. She’s infected. (starts to tear up)
Sloane: (to Elena) This is all you’re doing.
Jack (to Sydney): You have to take her out.
Sydney: No, dad. She’s my sister.
Irina: Listen to me, she’s not your sister anymore.
Sydney: I know. Please Nadia. Please let me help you. (she cries a little)
Nadia attacks Sydney, twisting her around. N kicks then punches S.
Jack: Sydney, what’s happening?
Sydney: (has N’s arm pulled back behind her) Nadia, stop!
N gets free and kicks S a few times. N starts to strangle S, who in turn, starts to choke, and cough. S punches N in the face. S kicks and punches N a few times. N gets S’s gun. They both do a few more twists and turns. Nadia shoots twice at Sydney, who dodges.
Vaughn enters the relay room and shoots some wires with his gun.
Vaughn: The relays blown. Check the signal strength.
Irina (she sounds weary): No good, Vaughn. The signal’s still broadcasting.
Elena: I’ve planned this for 5 years. Don’t you think I’ve accounted for every possibility?
Irina: Vaughn, is Sloane with you?
Vaughn: No, he’s not with you?
Irina: Get to the roof, right now.
Vaughn: On my way. (runs out of the relay room)
Nadia and Sydney continue to fight on the rooftop. Nadia picks up a metal pole and starts hitting Sydney with it, much like the way she did with that big stick in the Descent. Camera shows Vaughn running down a corridor. (This music reminds me of LOTR, don’t you think?) Back to N and S. The arm N has the gun in is stretched way out. S puts her hand on it and the bullet chamber falls out. N pulls out her own gun and shoots at S. The bullet appears to have grazed S’s cheek. She swings around, kicking N. We see Vaughn running up some stairs. N is knocked out. S is chaining her up. Sydney goes back to big mass of wire’s. Music goes back to normal Alias music.
Sydney: Okay, Mom, I’ve removed the panel.
Irina: Do you see the master circuit board?
Sydney: I see a lot of circuit boards.
Irina: It’s the one closest to the power supply. Trace the ground wire. It should lead you to the coil.
Sydney: Got it. (she removes the circuit board to reveal, the coil from Nightingale) Okay, I’m there.
Irina: There should be 2 wires, one black, one yellow.
Sydney: No. She’s changed them out. One wire’s blue, the other’s white.
Irina: Hold on, Sydney. (she walks over to Elena) I’ll give you one chance to do the right thing. Not that you were ever any good at that. Which wire?
Elena: It’s useless. In a few minutes, when the signal broadcasts, the whole world will be different. However you plan on torturing me, I’ll hold out-at least for that long.
Irina (smirks): I’m not gonna torture you. I’m gonna let him do it. (she jerks her head at Jack) And he really doesn’t care for you. Especially after you tricked him into killing me. (Jack moves around, getting equipment) One thing you should know about Jack, he hates being anybody’s puppet.
Jack: I’m actually hoping, you don’t tell us what we need to know. (Gets a syringe, a needle, and a vial of tap water) There’s a 50/50 chance Sydney cuts the right wire. I’m willing to take those odds. . .if it means I can stand here and watch you turn into an animal.
Elena (shakes her head, worriedly, it looks like): You’re not a gambling man, Jack.
Jack: I didn’t used to be, but it’s been a rather interesting year for me. It’s made me re-evaluate certain parts of my life. I’m trying to have more fun these days. (inserts the needle in Elena’s neck)
Elena: Wait! How do I know you won’t inject me anyway?
Jack: You don’t.
Elena: White! Tell her to cut the white wire! (BANG)
Irina (Holding a gun, her arm’s outstretched): Sydney, cut the blue wire. And then run like hell. You have 15 seconds before the ball bursts.
Sydney: Copy that. Cutting the blue wire. (Chain goes around her throat)
N is choking S with the same chain that S chained N up with. S is choking. BANG. Sloane shot N. N falls. S coughs. S stares at Sloane.
Sloane: I had no choice.
Vaughn (finally arrives): Sydney we got to go.
Sydney: Get her into the elevator.
Vaughn: (picks up Nadia) She’s still breathing.
Sydney leans over the wire mass.
Vaughn (Nadia in arms): Sydney, let’s go.
Vaughn heads the elevator. Sloane follows. Sydney shuts her eyes, takes a deep breath, cuts the blue wire. And she starts running like hell. In the elevator, Sloane rubs Nadia’s head.
Sloane: She’s bleeding out.
Vaughn: Put some pressure on it. (Sloane puts his hand over the bullet wound.)
Big Rambaldi Ball explodes. But instead of flame, like with normal explosions, we get tons of water.
Back in elevator.
Sydney: The device is coming apart.
Windows of the Oranskey building shatter. Water follows the elevator. They reach the bottom. Water follows. They run. They meet up with Jack and Irina, who close the big gate that blocks the water, barely.
Weiss (Paces, on comms.): Raptor, do you copy? Come on. Phoenix. Raptor. Phoenix. Do you copy? Come on. Anyone?
Marshall (on computer): Hold on. I’ll try an alternate signal.
Weiss: All right, what’s the status of the building?
Marshall (mouth agape): It’s not there anymore.
Vaughn (into phone): 3-9-alpha-2-4. We’ve transitioned out of the bunker. Requesing immediate evac. Med-support needed. Popping smoke now.
Jack (to Irina): The chopper should be here any minute.
Irina: We both know how this is supposed to play out. You bring me back to the States, turn me over to your superiors.
Jack: On foot, you could reach the border by daybreak.
Irina: What about the Agency? What would you tell them?
Jack: Oh, I think they know- no one can hold on to Irina Derevko for too long.
Irina grins and gives Jack a kiss on the lips. She walks over to Sydney.
Irina: Take care of your sister.
Sydney: I will.
Irina: 3 years ago, when I told you, you were the Chosen One, that only you could take down the greatest evil, I know your mind must have been overwhelmed with confusion. But tonight, you recognize that you’ve done just that. I’m so proud of you. (she kisses Sydney’s forehead)
Sydney: Thank you.
Irina walks away a bit then stops and turns around.
Irina: Sydney. You may not see me on your wedding day, but I’ll see you.
Sydney cries as she watches her mother leave.
Sloane in a prison cell. Sydney comes to visit.
Sloane: Nadia. Is she-
Sydney: Her vitals are stable. They’re keeping her under sedation until we find an antidote for her condition.
Sloane: What about the survivors? Russians must be running tests-
Sydney: There aren’t any survivors. The Russian military executed all remaining civilians inside Savogda.
Sloane: Of course. Otherwise it would bely their claim of a chemical explosion. It’s because of me. . .Because of my choices. I’ve hurt the most precious thing in my life.
Sydney: We’ll get her back. Whatever it takes, we’ll find a cure. Thank you. (Cell door opens.) I’ve arranged for you to see Nadia.
Sydney: I didn’t think I would ever say this, but I believe you were trying to do the right thing.
Sloane: Thank you. (He’s escorted out.)
Santa Barbara, not really, Vaughn and Sydney are in the car driving.
Sydney kisses Vaughn’s hand. She glances out the window. She fingers the back of Vaughn’s head. She takes her hand away to look at her ring. Smiles.
Sydney: I had a thought.
Sydney: What if we just blow off the whole big-wedding thing? What if we just do it on the beach?
Vaughn: The beach. (Glances back and forth between Sydney and the road. Both are all smiles)
Sydney: What do you think?
Vaughn: I like it. Barefoot on the beach, you’d look sexy as hell. Oh, but wait. What about your dad? He doesn’t look like the kind of guy who likes to have sand between his toes.
Sydney: That’s true. So. . .we won’t invite him.
Vaughn: Your father?
Sydney: What if we don’t invite anyone? We just elope?
Vaughn: You’re serious?
Sydney: I would love it.
Vaughn: All right. Then we’ll elope.
Sydney: Have I told you that I love you?
Vaughn: Yeah. Go ahead, tell me again.
Sydney: I love you.
Vaughn: I love you too. (She starts to play with his hair again.)
Sydney: I know. Say it again.
Vaughn: I love you, Syd. That’s why I need to tell you something. Just so there’s no secrets between us.
Sydney: Okay, whatever it is, I can handle it. Just don’t tell me you’re a bad guy. (pause) You’re not a bad guy, are you?
Vaughn: I guess that depends on who you ask.
Sydney: Vaughn. . .
Vaughn: It’s from a long time ago. It’s before we met. Actually it’s the reason we met. It’s no accident that I was the one you came to when you walked in the CIA with your story about SD-6.
Sydney: Wait. I don’t understand. Vaughn, what are you telling me?
Vaughn: Well, for starters, my name isn’t Michael Vaughn.
CRASH. Another car crashes into them.
