Phase One (2003)

Type :   Production countries :  


Sydney and Jack are confronted by the new director of SD-6, one Geiger, who replaces Sloane, whose whereabouts and intentions are unknown. Sydney and Vaughn lead the team to raid SD-6 and shut down the Alliance, and Sydney's friend Francie is killed by what looks like her doppleganger.

  • This episode originally aired after Super Bowl XXXVII on ABC
  • Despite earning critical acclaim from USA Today and attracting the largest audience of the series with 17.4 million viewers, this episode retained just 19 percent of the Super Bowl XXXVII audience and has the dubious distinction of earning the lowest overall ratings for a program airing after a Super Bowl since at least 1987 and the lowest rating ever in the age 18-49 demographic for a post-Super Bowl program. Much of this can be attributed to the fact that the episode didn't air until 11 p.m. on the East Coast, which also meant it was not eligible for the week's list of top primetime shows ranked by Nielsen Media Research and thus, the episode's viewership numbers were not factored in the series' overall 2002-2003 season average.
  • Geiger is portrayed by special guest star Rutger Hauer
  • This is one of the many episodes of Alias where French is spoken.
  • The song playing in the background in the opening scene featuring Sydney undercover in black lingerie is "Back in Black" by AC/DC.
