Search And Rescue is the twenty-first episode of Season 4 of Alias and the 87th episode overall. Rambaldi's catastrophic endgame begins to fall into place as a giant version of the Mueller device is found floating over a city in Russia, driving the citizens mad. After a wounded Dixon reveals that Irina is alive, Sydney, Nadia, and Jack set off to find her. Irina had been captured, and then duplicated using Project Helix, in order to give the impression that she was dead.

- Ron Rifkin (Arvin Sloane) does not appear in this episode. It is one of only two episodes (the other being Full Disclosure) not to feature Rifkin.
- When Sark was brought in to APO, he had to wear a bag over his head, presumably to prevent him from discovering its location. Apparently no such precaution was required when bringing Irina to the top secret location.
- Number 47: When Marshall examines the data from Lucien's PDA, there are two reference numbers with 47 one starts with 47 and one, as seen, is ref# 547-43-****
- When Irina says "Jack, I understand why you believed you had to kill me, but the truth is, if the situation had been reversed, I would've found another way." It is a lot like when Sydney tells Vaughn if it had been him who had been killed or missing, she wouldn't have given up, she would have found another way.
- Carl Lumbly does not appear in this episode - presumably as Dixon is recovering in hospital after being shot by Elena in the previous episode.
