“paramedics” with shotguns and sees Vaughn being taken away in a in a black
Sydney gets away is gets checked out at the hospital. She meets
Gordon Dean from the Office of Special Investigations, who wants to clarify the
events that just took place. Dean explains to Sydney that although she and
Vaughn are engaged she has an obligation to her country to tell him exactly what
happened. Jack comes in and tells Dean that Sydney will cooperate, but she needs
time to rest. Dean leaves. Jack then tells Sydney that Langley suspects Vaughn
of being a double agent. He then tells her that the crash might not have been an
accident, but an extraction for Vaughn.

dislocated shoulder. The man gives Vaughn an envelope and tells him to open it.
Vaughn pulls out a mini tape recorder and it plays a Mexican tune. Then man
takes it from him and pulls out a batter that holds a piece of paper with a code
on it. He asks Vaughn to tell him what it means. Vaughn just reads what he sees.
The man says he knows what it is about but, wants to know where Lehman is.
Vaughn asks who he is talking about. The man is annoyed and asks a goon to hurt

Back at APO, Sydney ask Weiss why Vaughn was
assigned to be her handler. Weiss asks Sydney if she really believes Vaughn
could be disloyal.
Vaughn continues to be hurt by the goon and the man says he
is tired of playing games and Vaughn calls him a “Quitter.” The man then
threatens to hurt Sydney by cutting off her ring finger and Vaughn asks to leave
her out of it. He will decrypt the code, all he needs is a pencil.

the man sets it he punches him out and hurts the goon and asks where Sydney is.
The goon tells him that Sydney escaped and he escapes through an air vent in the
ceiling. He immediately calls Sydney and asks her to trust him and to get his
fathers watch and meet him at a dead drop. She isn’t sure and says she needs to
think about it. Dean catches her after she gets off the phone. Dean asks where
Vaughn is and Sydney says she doesn’t know what he is talking about. Jack asks
Sydney to cooperate so they can bring Vaughn in safely. Sydney says he is in
Vaughn goes to the dead drop to get his father’s watch,

said Vaughn would be. Vaughn opens the locker and finds his father’s watch is
not there. The door explodes open and Vaughn looks surprised. Sydney gave Dean
the wrong information and in fact goes to see Vaughn and wants an explanation.
Vaughn tells Sydney his real name is Andre Michaux. He explains that a
woman(Rene Rienne) contacted him 7 years ago and said that Vaughn’s father and
her father worked on a project called Profit 5. A project that many people went
to great lengths to cover up. Vaughn’s father was a mathematician named Michaux
before he joined the CIA. Vaughn explains to Sydney that the day she walked into
the real CIA, she detailed information that spoke of Profit 5’s authenticity. He
then started to find out what Profit 5 was about and why his father ran away and
changed their names. They are on their way to meat Lehman who worked with

Lehman explains he was a cryptologist for the Pentagon and a private foundation
recruited him and “the best and the brightest” for Prophet Five. They were asked
to break the code of a 500 year-old document and after many years they broke the
code. The page was written about advanced genetics, something written way beyond
its time. Vaughn’s father contacted Lehman and said that the members of the
project were being killed off, supposedly by accidents. Vaughn’s father told
Lehman to disappear and he did. He has contacted Vaughn because he has a lead as
to where the book is. He explains that these people will stop at nothing to keep
the book and its information safe. Vaughn tells Lehman he will contact him when
he gets the book.
Sydney and Vaughn go to Cape Town, South Africa as a French
couple to try and get the book. They go to a party where the book is being held
in the hosts vault. They dance and Vaughn tells her he has been practicing the
Waltz for their wedding. A diversion happens and Vaughn goes to the room with
the vault and the host’s daughter shows up. The daughter flirts with him while
Sydney calls Dixon to help them out to break into the vault. Vaughn is rude to
the daughter and she leaves and then comes back to find Vaughn in the vault and
she turns on the Alarm. They both run to the extraction point and Sydney’s
doctor calls and tell her she is pregnant. They get ready to jump off a cliff
and Sydney blurts out that she is pregnant. They jump off the cliff.
visited by Jack in prison. Jack explains that he is trying to get him released.
Sloan is upset about Nadia’s condition. He has been combing through medical
journals to find a cure for her and says it isn’t enough and he needs to get
out. Jack asks Sloan if he knew about Vaughn’s trips to various countries. Sloan
tells Jack that the “Raven” aka Renee Rienne has been to the same places that
Vaughn has been traveling to. She is an assassin and has killed CIA agents.
Meanwhile, Dean has another agent decipher Marshall’s encryption of Vaughn’s
files and she gives Dean a location as to where Vaughn is.
Sydney and Vaughn
wait in a car for Lehman so they can give him the book. They talk about her
pregnancy. Vaughn at first tells Sydney that their lives are too messy to bring
a child into the world that he thought they would wait until it was safer to
have a child. BUT, then he says he can’t wait to be a father and to see what
their kid is going to be like. He can’t wait to meet this “new, little person.”
Sydney is very happy. Vaughn tells Sydney that she will be an awesome mom. She
says they will have to call Marshall for advice. Sydney sees Lehman and tells
Vaughn to go and give him the book. He tells her to start thinking of names.
Vaughn gives Lehman the book and asks him if he can decode it. Lehman says it
will take a while and will contact him and to not initiate contact with him.
Another car approaches, Dean gets out, and then another car crosses railroad
tracks just before a train crosses. Lehman attempts to run. Dean shoots him in
the back. Sydney gets out of the car and starts running, but can’t do anything
because of the train crossing. The man who interrogated Vaughn steps out of the
other car with a machine gun and shoots Vaughn repeatedly in the chest while all
Sydney can do is watch. Dean recovers the book from Lehman and Sydney sees his
face. She then rushes over to Vaughn after the train passes.
Vaughn is in
surgery and Jack approaches Sydney and tries to tell her that Vaughn is not the
person she thinks he is. He has been working with Rene Rienne. Sydney says she
knows, and Jacks questions her judgment. She tells Jack that she and Vaughn are
expecting a baby. She tells Jack that there is an explanation for everything, if
he would let her tell him. The doctor tells Sydney that Vaughn is in critical
condition and that the next 24 hours are crucial. Jack promises Sydney that he
will do anything he can to help them. Dixon calls Jack to tell him Dean was not
Special Operations and that he went of the map 2 years ago. Dean was presumed
dead. Sydney goes to sit with Vaughn. He wakes up and Jack explains that Dean is
a ghost and that he is well connected. Sydney asks what they are going to do.
Back at APO, Marshall, Weiss, and Dixon get things ready so they can transport
Vaughn to a safe house once he is stable. Marshall has been looking up
information concerning Profit 5 and can’t find anything. Jack tells him to keep
Vaughn and Sydney talk about baby names. They both like the name Isabelle.
Vaughn tells Sydney that he loves her and then he flat lines. The doctors rush
in and Sydney stands outside crying as they try to revive him. Vaughn doesn’t
A funeral is held for Vaughn.
Four months later, a very pregnant Sydney
shows up in a London bar and tells the bartender that she knows who she is and
that if she does, so will they. The bartender pretends not to know what she is
talking about and Sydney calls her Rene. Sydney tells her they need to talk
about Michael Vaughn. Rene realizes that she is Vaughn’s Sydney. Rene tells
Sydney she should have walked away. Sydney explains that Rene does not know her
