A steely Alliance official named Ariana Kane investigates the blackmail plot against Sloane. It's Jack, of course, who knows all of Soane's dirty little secrets and immediately raises Kane's suspicions. And they're hardly allayed when, during her questions about his personal life, Jack gets very defensive about some of his own secrets.

Meanwhile, Sydney's mommy dearest, Irina, makes things worse for her ex by telling him an unsettling truth about their KGB-orchestrated marriage; and Marshall's first mission goes horribly awry.

SARK to SLOANE: The Indian western command carried out an air strike on the PRF prison. The Rambaldi artifact was destroyed. My contact in the region, Gerard Cuvee, mistakenly believes I tipped the Indian authorities off. With all due respect sir, could the leak have come from this office?
