Sloane is distressed to learn that Prophet Five's cure for Nadia is just as likely to kill her.

Meanwhile, the search for Anna Espinosa continues, Rambaldi's prophetic Page 47 resurfaces, and Sydney offers Renée a job at APO.

origial airdate--May 3,2006

music--Theme song composed by J.J. Abrams performed by Charles Fernandez

  1. "Practice What You Preach" by Barry White

Goofs--When Sloane is injecting the cure for Nadia, the serum is visible in the syringe. There is a section of air between the liquid and the bottom of the pump mechanism. A few moments later, after he pushes Jack Bristow off of him, the syringe is filled with liquid all the way to the bottom of the pump mechanism.

  • When Jack and Nadia are at Sloane's storage facility, Jack bends down to open the door, but when the camera angle changes, Nadia is the one letting go of the door.

Trivia--The title comes from how long Nadia was supposed to die before being brought back to life. Ironically, it took her roughly 30 seconds to die after Sloane shoved her onto the glass table.
