Innyhoo, I have reason to believe Rach is evil and having a little affair with Sark! (lucky bitch) My evidence--from Kristin's latest chat transcript @ Eonline:
From sark4ever: When do we see David Anders again?
Very soon! I just heard that Sarkie-poo is coming back in the first half of the season and is going to be knocking boots with a main character. Guesses?
......a few questions later.......
From rouxfille: Is Rachel Nichols' character on Alias as evil as she seems?
Hint: She's also going to be knocking boots. Hmmm.
As Kristin says, hmmm. Oh, she also reveals Sark is coming in Episode 8 (I think we're on episode 3, yup I can recall two boring episodes so far this year. It's a pretty bad sign when you kill off a major character and your show still isn't exciting. I think it's Syd's pregnancy, because those suck.)
