** Passage I/II: Jack (and the audience) gets to see Irina Derevko in bra and panties, and she gives her 'husband' a good, long look. Just to established that Irina is still smokin' hot, which she is, and to remind us that Jack isn't over her, which is probably true.

* ManchurianAgent: Martin Shepard, who was brainwashed to be a killer for [=SD6=]. In a clear {{homage}} to ''Film/TheManchurianCandidate'' he was triggered by someone reciting a poem ("No Man Is an Island" by Creator/JohnDonne) then do whatever they said. He would then forget everything if it was recited again. After he began to break free of the conditioning, Shepard checked into a mental institution, and eventually broke free entirely, but not before helping Sidney. It's revealed he's the one who killed her boyfriend Danny under the command of [=SD6=].

Notable for the fact that the show was {{ReTool}}ed three separate times. Each time, character relationships and roles changed in fundamental ways. The show is also notable in the sheer number of A-grade Hollywood actors who partook in the series, ranging from the main cast (JenniferGarner and BradleyCooper are but two examples), to memorable recurring players (QuentinTarantino and DjimonHounsou as two more examples).

-->'''Vaughn:''' I need to tell you something. Just so there's no secrets between us.
-->'''Sydney:''' Okay, whatever it is, I can handle it. Just don't tell me you're a bad guy. ''(pause)'' You're not a bad guy, are you?
-->'''Vaughn:''' I guess that depends on who you ask.
-->'''Sydney:''' Vaughn. . .
-->'''Vaughn:''' It's from a long time ago. It's before we met. Actually it's the reason we met. It's no accident that I was the one you came to when you walked in the CIA with your story about SD-6.
-->'''Sydney:''' Wait. I don't understand. Vaughn, what are you telling me?
-->'''Vaughn:''' Well, for starters, my name isn't Michael Vaughn.

* OutOfOrder: The airdates of the season two episodes "Phase One" and "Double Agent" were swapped. "Phase One", which completely [[ReTool retools]] the show, was given "Double Agent"'s post-Super Bowl timeslot to attract new viewers (it didn't work -- it was the lowest post-Super Bowl ratings since 1975) and "Double Agent" had some new scenes shot to fit the revised continuity. Additionally, the ending of "Double Agent" where [[spoiler: Francine is murdered by her double]] was tacked on to the end of "Phase One" instead, explaining some of the inconsistencies [[spoiler: like why Francie jumps Will and starts making out with him apropos of nothing]] in the episode proper.

Added DiffLines:

* TheSeriesHasLeftReality: starts off as a relatively cut-and-dry TuxedoAndMartini-style spy drama. Gradually, over the course of five seasons, the show introduces more and more science fiction elements until eventually you've got prophecies, immortality, city-sized balls of {{Synthetic|Plague}} HatePlague (or something), [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking special bees that are incredibly venomous and totally docile]], and more.
