Episode 22: The Telling

At the CIA, a depressed Sydney confers with Vaughn. Marshall begins receiving top-secret info — Irina is uploading the double's DNA, as she said she would. Syd then tells Will that he's been cleared because the downloaded DNA doesn't match his, it's from one H.E. Doren.

While Syd is unwinding at an ice rink, Irina shows up to call in her favor. Syd attacks but Irina throws her down and reveals the whole of her plan. Sloane had 23 Rambaldi artifacts, she says, and the CIA had 24. They had to be put together in order to work so she proposed to Sloane that they work together to defeat The Alliance and raid the CIAs storage facility, which is in an NSA lab in Nevada. Her favor — she simply wants Syd to raid a warehouse in Zurich where Sloane hides the Rambaldi artifacts.

Sark and Francie meet, and he calls her Allison. He says they can't reverse the doubling process because Markovic's lab has been destroyed. Sark says they'll get her back and they kiss.

Will investigates and finds the name Allison Georgia Doren on a list of children involved in Project Christmas. She was supposed to have died in a car accident as a child. Will calls Doren's parents and finds that her body was never identified.

In Zurich, Syd and a team raid the warehouse. Rather than Rambaldi artifacts, they find kitchen appliances stuffed in crates.

While transporting the Di Regno heart, Jack is attacked and captured by Sloane, who reveals that in 24 hours the final Rambaldi machine, called "The Telling," will be complete. He speaks almost mystically, referring to a "change." Jack, venomous, pities the void in Sloane's life. For his part, Sloane says they're still friends.

Irina calls Syd and says Sloane switched the crates. She doesn't know where he is but Sark, hiding in a Stockholm club, does. Although Syd doesn't trust her, she and Vaughn go and do, indeed, find Sark. Weasel that he is, Sark quickly offers up Sloane, saying that he and Jack are in Mexico City. Later, from a CIA prison cell, he directs them to Sloane's hideout.

The CIA team storms an office building and engages in a gunbattle. Dixon finds Jack. Irina appears, and while she seems to be on Sydney's side, Syd runs after her while Vaughn goes after Sloane. Syd confronts her on the skyscraper's rooftop and threatens to kill her. Irina says that Sloane believes he's been chosen to realize the word of Rambaldi. Only Syd can stop him, Irina says, because she — not Sloane — is the chosen one of the prophecy. "I love you," Irina says, and jumps. Holding on to a bungee cord, she shoots out windows and swings back into the building to escape.

At home, Will finds Provacillium — the medicine needed to counteract the buildup of proteins in the double's eyes — at nearly the same time that Francie sees Will's file on Allison Doren. Having finally discovered the truth, Will makes a quick phone call to Syd and leaves a voicemail identifying Francie as the second double. It's too late, though. Francie attacks Will and she stabs him. He crumples to the floor.

Later, Syd comes home and retrieves her messages while relaxing in the den with Francie. Keeping a poker face, Syd offers Francie a scoop of coffee ice cream. Francie accepts, and Syd knows — the real Francie hated coffee ice cream. Syd goes to her bedroom to get her gun but Francie confronts her before she can. They engage in a no-holds-barred brawl. After much carnage, Syd finally shoots Francie and collapses from exhaustion.

Syd wakes in Hong Kong wearing different clothes and appearing confused and worried. She calls Kendall, who directs her to a safe house. She arrives there and notices a scar on her stomach. Vaughn arrives and appears out of sorts. He says Will is okay. He's shaken, he says, because he thought she was dead. He's come back to explain. Sydney notices that he's wearing a wedding ring. Reluctantly he tells her that she's been missing for almost two years.

Episode 21: Second Double

Francie tells Sark that the CIA believes Will has been compromised. Irina, informed by Sark, refuses to allow Francie to kill Will but supports his set-up. Francie hypnotizes Will and burns the mark of the second double on his retina.

Jack, suspecting Will of stealing footage of the Tuscany raid and of being the second double, has him arrested for espionage. Jack then shows Syd and Vaughn a digital recording found in Will's posession — it's of them fooling around in Syd's apartment. Later, Syd tells a frightened Will that his ocular scan shows an accumulation of proteins, convincing evidence that he's the double. Syd asks him in what room they kissed but Will can't remember the specifics because Francie has selectively erased his memories. Syd then blows her cover to Francie, believing Francie needs to be protected.

When Will's fingerprints are found on the detonator that killed Diane, Dixon pays him a visit in the CIA holding cell. Will cannot convince Dixon of his identity and Dixon nearly chokes him to death. Will is soon transferred to a prison camp on orders from the Department of Justice. Sark tells Francie that she'll have to kill Will in order to maintain her cover. Jack confronts Kendall, who went behind his back to the DOJ to secure Will's transfer.

The CIA has located Dr. Hans Jurgen, the creator of the Project Helix equipment, and believes he may know the identity of the second double. In a Berlin sex club, Sydney, clad as a dominatrix, ties Jurgens up while Vaughn takes pictures. Under threat of blackmail, Jurgens swears he doesn't know the double's identity but says the DNA data is stored on a European server farm.

Will's convoy is attacked. As Dixon fights off the attackers, Will escapes. He desperately calls Syd, who wants to help. Will, however, says he can't trust her, that she's destroyed his life and he wishes they never met. Syd is still determined to help and mentions the server farm. Will says his research showed that Markovic owned land in Marseilles, and that might be the server location.

Irina, speaking to a contact, asks for the blueprints to a government storage facility. She then mentions to Sark that NSA security is based on a keycard. Sark admits he authorized the assault on Will and that Will is now at large. He suggests that if they get to Marseilles first, they could exchange the real double's DNA, which would prove Will's innocence, for the NSA keycard.

Jack determines Will's fingerprints were placed on the detonator after it was wiped. He arranges for Syd to go to Marseilles behind Kendall's back, knowing that he'll lose his his managerial position and be replaced by Kendall. Sloane unexpectedly confronts Jack at a restaurant. He says he forgives Jack for his SD-6 betrayal, to which Jack replies that their friendship ended when he recruited Syd. Sloane admits that was a mistake and asks Jack to partner with him in the next phase of the Rambaldi quest — and promises that Syd won't be involved. Jack declines. Sloane, undeterred, says they will work together again.

In the Marseilles facility, Syd's objective is to secure a killswitch worn by the security chief and prevent the deletion of data. Vaughn poses as a drunk, allowing Syd to breach security. She finds that Irina has already killed the guard and possesses the killswitch. Irina tazers Syd and destroys the data. She's copied and transferred it to a secure location, however, and will give it to Syd in return for a favor.

Will, believing he can trust only Francie, calls her. She picks him up and they drive off.

Episode 20: Countdown

At Diane's funeral, Vaughn observes a grieving Dixon secretly pop pills. Later, he tells Sydney that Dixon is self-medicating and should take time off before going back to work.

Sark suggests that Sloane go to Panama City. Sloane seems distracted and declines, but gives him a number to call to get what he needs while Irina lays low in Cypress. Sloane admits that killing Diane was a mistake. He's going on leave, he says, and hands Sark the reins.

At the CIA, Marshall gives a presentation on Rambaldi for the benefit of NSA task force leader Frederick Brendan and Rambaldi expert Kerry Bowman. In his 15th century drawings, Marshall explains, Rambaldi drew a DNA profile of Panamanian named Proteo Di Regno. His DNA is the code key to decrypt page 94 of the Rambaldi manuscript, which foretells certain apocalyptic events. One of them is to happen in 48 hours and may involve Di Regno. Syd and Dixon are dispatched to find him and bring him back.

But Syd and Dixon arrive in Panama City too late. Not only is Di Regno dead, his heart has been ripped out. They find that he has a Rambaldi tattoo. Syd also finds a latex glove, which yields a fingerprint of an assassin named Emilio Vargas.

Back home, Vaughn requests that Dixon be taken out of the field. When Jack refuses, Vaughn does an end-around and calls Dr. Barnett. Marshall, meanwhile, makes a love connection when he offers a Kleenex to Bowman, who's been moved to tears by a Joni Mitchell song. They discuss Rambaldi and find they share common interests. She asks him out for sushi. Va-va-voom.

Dixon and Syd find Vargas and defeat him in a swordfight. Dixon exhibits exceptional brutality during the interrogation, but he gets info about Di Regno and Sloane. Later, Dixon is called in to see Barnett at Vaughn's prompting. Dixon says he used necessary force and that he needs to be involved in the hunt for Sloane. She's not so sure, however. When Dixon confronts Syd later, she denies reporting him. Dixon reveals he's been taking Vicoden and that he must take a drug test . Sydney is furious at Vaughn, but he stands by his actions.

Sloane appears in the Himalayas, trekking to a monastery on a remote mountaintop. He finds the monk who sent him on the Rambaldi quest 30 years ago and vents his anger. The monk responds without fear.

Vaughn later apologizes to Syd; Dixon's drug test is negative. Syd tells Dixon he passed the test, but Dixon reveals he switched the results and begs her not to tell Barnett. He's lost without Diane, he says. Syd covers for him when Barnett calls her in. Meanwhile, Dixon contemplates suicide on a bridge.
The CIA tracks the heart to a truck delivering to a ship docked in Cartegena. When Dixon and Syd are sent on the mission, Dixon promises that he can handle the stress. At the dock, Syd and Dixon find the truck, but the heart has been moved. Dixon brutally beats a dockworker who he thinks is hiding info. He reveals a bomb and threatens to blow them all up unless he gets answers. Neither Syd nor Vaughn can do anything for fear of setting the bomb off. As the timer winds down, the man tells Dixon that the heart is on the boat. The timer goes to zero, but Dixon was bluffing — he had cut the timer cord. It's 10 minutes to midnight, the prophecy has been thwarted … or has it?

The monk knows that Emily died; it was necessary, he says. He presents Sloane with a scroll. Sloane learns that his journey has just begun.

The CIA team opens the box and finds the "heart." Dixon apologizes to Syd for putting her in a tough position. He says that he came to terms Diane's death while on the bridge. Vaughn and Syd relax in a park. Vaughn says Dixon admitted he switched the tests, and for that he'll get leniency. Syd reveals she knew what Dixon had done and apologizes. They walk off, arm in arm.

Episode 19: Endgame

Dixon apologizes to Sydney for taking the shot that killed Emily and says he has requested reassignment. In hiding, a vengeful Sloane, no longer interested in the Rambaldi quest, tells Irina that he wants to know who murdered his wife.

At the CIA, a restless Sydney suggests to Elsa Caplan that she be hypnotized, for lack of any other leads. Elsa angrily refuses and is upset that Syd thinks she isn't doing enough to find her husband Neil. Meanwhile, Irina gives Neil an encrypted database of DNA taken from 10 million people, with the expectation that he can find one specific person.

Working at home, Syd significantly gives Vaughn a drawer in her bureau. While poring over records, Syd notices 3 calls to Caplan's house at odd hours and traces them to Gregory Ivanov, a reporter working for an organization known to give cover to Russian SVR agents. After Ivanov is put under surveillance, she discovers that he has just received a fax that says "endgame." Later Elsa admits that Ivanov was her handler and that she married Caplan in order to monitor him. She also implanted in his arm a cyanide pill, and the meaning of the fax is that the pill has been activated and will kill her husband in 42 hours. She tells Syd that she really does love Caplan.

According to Elsa, the pill has a tracking chip that's activated by a code that she knows. If they can get a locating device from a blackmarket contact in Moscow who deals in SVR contraband, they can enter the code and find Caplan. Jack doesn't trust Elsa, given her similarities to Irina, and refuses to act on the information even though it could lead them to Sloane. Syd secretly tells Elsa that she'll get the device herself. Elsa gives her the code.

Caplan attacks Irina in an attempt to escape. Sloane shoots him in the leg and threatens to waste him, but Irina says Caplan is still needed. Later, Sloane contacts Francie with a request.

Dixon confers with his wife Diane about his reassignment. He wants to do it for the sake of their marriage. She pledges her love and loyalty to him.

Jack has Syd trailed. She notices the agents and pulls into a drugstore where a group of Sigma Gamma sorority girls shop and chat. As Syd phones Vaughn and relays a coded message, she buys random items — wrapping paper, tape, a wig. She ducks into a back room and, using the purchased goods, disguises herself as a one of the girls, and joins them on the way out. Vaughn, meanwhile, decodes Syd's message. She's going to Russia.

Jack confronts Vaughn. He intercepted the message and refuses to send Sydney backup. In Moscow, Syd, disguised as a cowgirl, meets the blackmarket dealer in an ersatz honky-tonk bar. Before he'll listen to her, she must prove her worth by riding the mechanical bull for 8 seconds, which she does. She then pays fifty thousand dollars for the locating device. Syd calls Vaughn and tells him to meet her in Saria, Spain.

Francie, who has altered Will's phone, calls him at the CIA and asks him to pull up a recipe on a Web site. As he does it, she somehow uses him to hack into CIA computers and downloads the surveillance tape of Emily's death. Sloane then identifies Dixon as Emily's killer.

Vaughn and Syd arrive at an office building in Saria and overpower the guards. They find Caplan, who says Sark is in the area. He also tells Syd that he's an NSA agent and he knows that his wife is a Russian operative. Sark eludes Vaughn as Syd extracts the suicide pill.

Back at the CIA, Caplan and Elsa reunite. Convinced of their love, Jack has granted Elsa defector status. Syd says the data Caplan has decrypted gives them leads on Sloane. Unswayed, Jack says that Syd will be transferred if she disobeys him again. Marshall finds that the satellite footage from Tuscany has been downloaded from the CIA computers — and that it was an inside job.

At dinner with his wife Diane, Syd, and Vaughn, Dixon announces that he has rescinded his transfer. The group leaves the restaurant and Diane gets into her car to pickup the kids, saying she'll meet Dixon at home. As she drives off, the car explodes. Francie leaves the scene.

Episode 18: Truth Takes Time

Despite Sydney's remonstrance, Vaughn's badge is taken and he's now officially under investigation. Jack tells Sydney of Irina's escape and betrayal. Heartbroken, she retreats to Irina's old cell, where Dixon consoles her. Sydney shows him the earrings Irina left for her and wishes Irina was dead.

Aboard Sloane's jet, Sloane and Irina discuss their plans — Irina will acquire files from a genetic database in Germany while Sloane reunites with Emily in Tuscany. He speaks of his regard for Sydney, angering Irina. "Don't ever talk about your love for my daughter," she says. Later in Tuscany, Sloane surprises Emily with the purchase of a villa.

At the CIA, Jack takes over the briefing from Kendall. Due to his intimate knowledge of Irina, he's been assigned operational control of the task force aimed at her, and Sloane's, apprehension. Jack reveals he secretly injected Irina with a passive transmitter, and that it will reveal her location in 12 hours.

During target practice, Vaughn tells Sydney that his security clearance has been temporarily downgraded but he's still field-ready. He advises her not to join the task force; she shouldn't have to hunt her own mother. Syd assures him that she won't hesitate to pull the trigger. Meanwhile, an incensed Kendall, feeling misled into trusting Irina, confronts Jack. Jack assures Kendall that he's not after his job and he'll step down after Irina's capture.

Irina's signal goes live; she's in Stuttgart along with Sark. Posing as a Scandinavian pharmaceutical rep, Irina gains access to the genetic database at Brucker Biotech, the German equivalent of the Human Genome Project.

Sark spots the CIA outside and assumes Irina's tagged. He de-bugs her with an electric shock and sets an explosive while she downloads the database. The CIA moves in. Sark meets Vaughn in a stairwell and shoots him. Sydney knocks the gun from Sark, who then flees. Vaughn, Syd learns, was wearing a bulletproof vest. Irina then baits them into chasing her, so they're free of the building as the bomb explodes.

In Tuscany, Emily answers a call from Irina. She summons Sloane, who is told to go to his jet for the handoff. Sloane begs a confused Emily to trust him. Back at the CIA, Will explains that the data contains the DNA of millions of private citizens. Marshall theorizes that Sloane could develop genetically-targeted weapons. In Sloane's jet, Emily is shocked to see Irina, whom she thought dead, and angered at Sloane's continuing deception. Sloane explains that what he's after will let her live cancer free forever.

At dinner in L.A., Sydney thinks Francie's behavior is odd after she presents Vaughn with a gift.
Emily, meanwhile, turns herself in to the American consulate in Florence and asks to speak to Syd, who flies in to meet her. Tired of the lies and rationalizing, Emily offers up Sloane in return for the CIA promise that he won't get the death-penalty. Sydney sympathizes with Emily, admitting she sees her as a maternal figure. Jack agrees to the condition.

Sloane, however, is ready to quit crime for Emily's sake. He tells Irina that he wants to sell her all his assets, including his collection of Rimbaldi artifacts. He tells Irina to meet him at the villa.

With Emily wired and the CIA surrounding the villa, Sloane arrives with Irina. Irina retrieves the data while Sloane tells his wife that he loves her. Guilt-ridden, she exposes the wire. With the CIA moving in, Sloane, understanding his wife's torment, asks her to escape with him. She chooses to run with him and they escape through an underground passage. Irina follows, as does a pursuing Sydney.

Syd catches up to Irina, who's vulnerable as she climbs a ladder to the surface. Syd hesitates before shooting her mother in the arm. Irina drops the disk, but makes it out. Armed with a sniper scope, Dixon spots Sloane and Emily running toward a helicopter, Irina following. He targets Sloane, fires, and hits … Emily. Irina grabs Sloane, who's grieving over Emily's body, and they escape to the chopper. Sydney is devastated.

Back in Syd's apartment, Sydney and Vaughn are in bed when they hear Morse code coming from the earrings that had once belonged to Irina. Sydney decrypts the message, which reads: TRUTH TAKES TIME.

Episode 17: A Dark Turn

An elevator falls 40 stories, killing the three men inside. Sark pries open the door and retrieves a wallet from one of them, a Russian arms dealer named Yuri Karpachev. At a briefing, Kendall tells Jack that Karpachev was one of Irina's contacts. Jack also knows that Karpachev had ties to Sloane.

Irina tells Jack that Karpachev's wallet contained a key to his safe, which Sloane believes contains a Rambaldi manuscript. It doesn't, she says. Karpachev sold it to a man in Bangkok named Ilya Shtuka. She proposes a meeting with Shtuka to obtain the manuscript. Word of her re-appearance would also draw out Sloane. If he's captured, Irina hopes, then Sydney will quit the CIA.

Sydney is called in to meet with Mitchell Yager, a counter-intelligence analyst who is investigating Vaughn. Vaughn, he says, has contacted unapproved foreign operatives and met with Vladimir Prokrowski, a former KGB assassin. He pressures Syd to examine Vaughn's laptop because he may have downloaded a forbidden decryption program called Xenon. .

Meanwhile, Kendall is hesitant to allow Irina to make contact with Sloane. Jack reassures him, stating that he'll escort her, and that they'll bait Sloane with the manuscript. He says that he'd know if Irina was deceiving him again. Marshall implants a tracking device in Irina's shoulder.

Irina meets with Shtuka at a Bangkok nightclub. He reveals that traded the manuscript for opium rights in Hong Kong. Irina kills him, and is then saved from an attacking thug by Jack. They fly to Hong Kong, where they manage to obtain the manuscript.

At the CIA, Vaughn calms a suspicious Syd, who then returns to Yager and states she can't betray someone she loves.

Sloane is informed of Irina's appearance and requests a meeting in Panama to discuss the purchase of the manuscript. Jack and Irina will be accompanied by a delta force. Irina requests a visit from Syd, and tells her that the mission is going to be dangerous — and that she loves her.

At the apartment Francie puts Will under hypnosis, and he reveals the orbital location of a satellite, as well as its operational controls.

In Panama, Irina and two guards are to meet Sloane. They'll be tracked by a CIA satellite — when the time is right, the delta team will ambush Sloane. At Irina's behest, Jack removes the tracking device so Sloane cannot possibly detect it. Jack and Irina kiss.

Weiss tells Syd that Vaughn is about to be charged. They locate Vaughn at a bar, where she observes him secretly receiving a package. She confronts him, telling him the CIA suspects he's a spy. Vaughn confesses to Sydney that he's been investigating Irina since she turned herself in. After months of research, he's found nothing to suspect she has an agenda.

Expecting Sloane, Irina finds only Sark, who has arrived in a limousine. She and the guards cautiously enter. The CIA loses the satellite signal — it's been hacked by Sloane, based on the info that Will had given Francie. Subsequently, Jack tells Kendall that he cannot activate the tracking device, and to send in the Delta team. The team surrounds the limo at a pier but the occupants are not Sark and Irina. It's a dupe that was used when Sark drove through a tunnel. Kendall checks the manuscript at the CIA and finds that it is filled with post-it notes.

Sark stops his car under a bridge, shoots the two guards and tells Irina to get out. A van arrives with Sloane inside. Irina thanks Sloane for extracting her, and hands him the manuscript, which she had hidden with her during the entire operation.

Episode 16: Firebomb

Sydney and Sloane leave the bank while Vaughn works to disarm the C-4 in the bank's basement. While Syd drives Sloane's getaway car, she tells him that he's on the CIA hit list. Sloane, having learned that the C-4 is disarmed, jumps from the car to a speeding van that eludes Sydney. Later at the CIA, Kendall and Syd argue about Sloane, with each saying the others efforts are sub par.

Vaughn receives a call from Weiss while at Sydney's apartment. The phone call triggers one of the hidden bugs, which replays a previous conversation. They locate the bug in a wall. At the CIA, Marshall says that he had made the bug while at SD-6. The bug, he says, periodically transmits to a receiver, which is why Vaughn heard it over his cellular. Jack orders Marshall to reverse engineer the bug to find to whom the conversations are going.

In Switzerland, as Sloane views a Rambaldi page with a hole in the center, Sark informs him that Caplan's tests are complete. The artifact is ready, and Sark will now prepare to test it. Sloane flies to Kandahar and meets Ahmad Kabir, a Pashtun warlord, hoping to recruit him as a partner in his nefarious plans. He wins over the reluctant Kabir with a gift — a pen once belonging to a 17th century Afghani warrior-poet.

At Syd's place, Francie tries to get Syd to talk, saying they've grown apart recently. But Syd receives a phone call from Vaughn and leaves immediately. Francie realizes that the bugs have been discovered and calls Sark, who tells her that they'll be looking for an L.A. asset so she should simply give them one. She later kills and frames Sydney's plumber.

The bug's feed proved to be untraceable, but Kendall has info placing Sloane with Kabir. In discussing a way into Kabir's compound, Sydney reveals that Dixon had infiltrated his operations and stolen a missile shipment. Kendall orders Sydney to recruit Dixon. She tries, but is rebuffed. Vaughn then tells Will to present his analysis of Kabir to Kendall.

In Kandahar, Kabir observes Sloane admiring a 16th century Buddhist statuette of an ahrat, a destroyer of the enemy. He asks for proof of Sloane's power. Sloane asks him to choose a target.

At the CIA, Will recommends that they contact Aliyah Kazabi, Kabir's ex-wife, who hates him so much that she escaped from his tyranny with their son. She's married to an administrator at the Vatican Embassy in Mexico City. Vaughn and Sydney immediately leave to find her. Sark, meanwhile, has been dispatched to Mexico City, where he hides the Rambaldi weapon in a van outside the embassy. He sets it at 20 percent of its capacity.

Sydney, disguised as an old woman, tracks down Kazabi, who refuses to get involved. Weiss informs Vaughn of a plot to blow up the embassy. He alerts Syd, who knocks Kazabi unconscious to take her with them. As they speed away, those in the embassy and its church burst into flame. Weiss notes a hot spot on his infrared monitor, although Syd and Vaughn see nothing. Upon returning, however, they find dozens of charred bodies. It's enough to sway Kazabi, who decides to help.

A very pleased Kabir, believing his ex-wife to be dead, gives Sloane the ahrat as a gift, as well as $40 million. The CIA traces Sark from Mexico City to Kabul and assumes the operation involved Sloane. Sydney's mission is to enter Kabir's compound and disable the weapon. Marshall explains that the weapon acts like a neutron bomb, emitting high energy, microwave-like pulse. It also knocks out electricity, meaning it can down planes, and there is no defense against it. He shows Sydney a cold suit that she'll wear in order to shield herself from the heat-sensitive cameras at the Helmand base.

Sydney successfully enters Kabir's base but her intel is bad, and she's detected and captured when her mask is knocked off during a fight. Vaughn asks for assistance but Kendall refuses to take the chance. Unless they find another way in, no one will save Sydney. A desperate Vaughn turns to … Dixon.

In Kandahar, Kabir tortures Sydney. As he is about to destroy her knee with a hammer and chisel, he's shot — it's Vaughn and Dixon. They take the device, fight their way out and return home. Syd thanks Dixon, who says that he can't judge her for not telling him about SD-6. At her apartment, Sydney relates to Vaughn that every time they think they have seen the worst, it is far from over.

Sark wonders why Sloane left the weapon with Kabir, who ultimately lost it. Sloane breaks the ahrat, revealing the missing piece of the Rambaldi manuscript page. He places the piece in the missing center, completing the page.

From Hell

From Hell

(Released in 2001)

The infamous Jack the Ripper case set in London of 1888. The Ripper has been running amok in the Whitechapel district murdering and dissecting prostitutes. Scotland Yard Inspector Fred Abberline, aided by his partner, Peter Godley, are on the case to figure out who this serial killer is and why he is killing these women in such a brutal manner. Abberline is an opium addict and when "chasing the dragon" he is able to have visions of the future, a certain psychic ability that allows him to solve cases.
