Plot Overview


Arc Advancement


  • Already close to a key they could use to operate it, the Covenant get their hands on Rambaldi artefact, a cube that has the name Irina engraved on it and Jack warns that the content threaten Sydney's life.
  • Analyses of the recording of the flight communication reveal that Sark made a phone call to someone they can't hear to whom he says "Not if I see you first, love." Later, Jack overhears Lauren say the exact same thing to Vaughn and clearly is suspicious.


  • Sloane is arrested when a search of the FAA database reveals that it was accessed from Switzerland via Dr Barnett's IP address.
