Agent Sydney Bristow has always held her own in the traditional boy's club of espionage. In fact, she's grown comfortable in her well-earned role as respected go-to girl. But with the recent addition of her half-sister, Nadia, dynamics inevitably shift as Sydney finds herself with a new partner, roommate, and -- even if unintentional -- competitor. APO's mission to retrieve a mysterious biological weapon is compromised, and in the melee Weiss is infected. Driven by concern and guilt, Sydney searches for the only known vaccine -- until her cover is blown and she must watch Nadia assume her field role next to Vaughn. But when Vaughn and Nadia's cover is blown, only Sydney and Nadia's collective strength can keep Sydney's "family" alive.
rapped in paradise "I'm sure you already know this, but I have to tell you, your home is beautiful," Paige said, walking along the periphery of the library, taking in the leather-bound titles as Micah followed closely behind. "And I'm sure you already know this, but so are you," Micah said. "It was so important to me that you love this place as much as I do," he continued quietly. "But I knew. I knew the moment you saw it that you had fallen in love." A warm rush raced over Paige's skin as he moved his hands to her waist. She looked up at him, her eyelids heavy. "How could I not?" she said. "It's ... fascinating." As they gazed into each other's eyes, Paige felt the same dizzying sensation she'd experienced at the restaurant the night before, but it was okay. She was beginning to enjoy it-this feeling of being lost in his eyes. "You haven't even seen the best part yet," Micah said, his voice throaty. "The best part?" she repeated, temporarily incapable of forming her own thoughts. "The garden," Micah said, his eyes flashing with excitement. "You have to see the garden."

"You're not going anywhere!' Paige said to the Anubi demon, holding a ball offire over his face menacingly. "Not until you tell us what you've done with all the witches you've taken." The Anubi let out a low, menacing laugh and a chill ran down Piper's spine. "They're all dead," he told them. "But we still have their blood if you're interested." Piper's breath caught in her throat as the Anubi turned its massive head toward a line of more than twenty canisters on the windowsill. If each one held the blood of a different witch, then there were even more victims than they had thought. Suddenly, Piper felt her whole body go numb. She turned and looked at Tessa and Taryn who were huddled together by the door. "That means that Tina is ... Tina is actually ..." Taryn took one step away from her sister and fainted, her body falling limp on the floor. Tessa crumbled next to her and started to sob. Her heart twisting painfully, Piper turned slowly back to the Anubi, lifted her hands, and just as Phoebe, Cole, and Leo flung themselves out of harm's way, blew him to pieces.
"And I'll stay here and deal with the painters and any Darklighters that might show up," Piper One put in, smiling. "Then you can go to P3 and take care of Rinaldo while I bake!" "Perfect!" Piper Two exclaimed. They both stood up and started for the door that led to the foyer, but Piper One suddenly paused and grabbed Piper Two's arm. She immediately pulled her hand back. It was a little bizarre touching a person who was essentially herself. Now she knew what her body looked and felt like from the outside as well as the inside. This was way more intense than a mirror image. If she dwelled on it for too long, she knew it would freak her out. "Wait a second," she said. "What about personal gain?" "Hey. This is going to make us a much happier, saner witch," Piper Two told her, swinging her hair behind her shoulder. "It's for the greater good."
