Façade (2004)

Type :   Production countries :  


Sydney and Vaughn must convince bomb maker Daniel Ryan that they are part of The Covenant in order to find out where he has hidden one of his devices. But Sydney discovers that her ties to the bomber could lead him on a suicide mission.

Daniel Ryan, former bomb disposal expert, has created a bomb and detonates it in public to advertise his skills and prove that the bomb cannot be disarmed. He is willing to sell the bomb to The Covenant. Based on information from Lysanker, the CIA captures Ryan, under the guise of representing The Covenant.

They reproduce a Moscow hotel in order to convince Ryan that he is dealing with The Covenant. Ryan agrees to the deal, but demands that the information be provided only to Sark on a scheduled airline flight. When the contact does not eventuate, the CIA investigates Ryan and discovers that The Covenant had killed his brother. It was Sydney who had performed the murder, during a test of loyalty . A bomb is then discovered on board the plane carrying Vaughn and Sark which will activate if the plane descends to land.

The CIA reveal their identity to Ryan but he refuses to help. Sydney sympathizes with Ryan, explaining that The Covenant also stole a part of her life when turning her into Julia Thorne. Ryan then agrees to disarm the bomb, supplying a pager code. However, this actually activates the timer of the bomb on board the plane, together with one held in the CIA office, with only 5 minutes until detonation. Ryan explains that he knows it was Julia Thorne who killed his brother.

Jack manages to coerce Ryan into providing a deactivation code and both bombs are stopped with one second remaining.
