Apart from the pilot, the episodes in Alias are often unconventionally structured in that the title credits are usually shown well into the plot, almost as an afterthought. Also, usually a plot finishes at mid-episode and a new plot begins, so that every episode finishes with a cliffhanger. The impression thus created is that an episode will conclude the previous one and plant the seeds of the next one.

Seven years before Season 1, [[Sydney Bristow]] was an undergraduate student of English literature when she was approached with a job offer by someone claiming to work for [[SD-6]], which was supposedly part of the [[Central Intelligence Agency]]. She accepted the offer, and quickly became a field agent. In the pilot, she tells her fiancé [[Danny]] that she is a spy. As a result of revealing SD-6's existence to an outsider, her fiancé is murdered by SD-6.

It is then that Sydney is told by her father [[Jack Bristow]] (another SD-6 agent) that SD-6 is not part of the CIA; instead, it is part of the [[Alliance of Twelve]], an organization that is an enemy to the United States.

She quickly learns that her father is also a double agent for the CIA.

Major plotlines from season 1 include Sydney hiding her triple-identity from her friends, both in her personal life and in her SD-6 job, [[Will Tippin]]'s investigation into Danny's death, and the past antics of Sydney's mother. Sub-plots included Sydney's friendship with [[Francie]], Francie's romantic relationship with [[Charlie]], and Sydney's developing relationship with her CIA handler [[Michael Vaughn]], of whom she is skeptical at first but grows to trust as her life becomes increasingly stressful. Season One focuses on the development of Sydney's character, and allows the audience to become familiar with her. The other seasons share the same theme of a guest star appearing throughout the entire season.

The Season 1 cast of Alias

Alias Season 1 began airing on September 30, 2001. It concluded on May 12, 2002, with the 22nd episode.

Apart from the pilot, the episodes in Alias are often unconventionally structured in that the title credits are usually shown well into the plot, almost as an afterthought. Also, usually a plot finishes at mid-episode and a new plot begins, so that every episode finishes with a cliffhanger. The impression thus created is that an episode will conclude the previous one and plant the seeds of the next one.

Synopsis

Seven years before Season 1, Sydney Bristow was an undergraduate student of English literature when she was approached with a job offer by someone claiming to work for SD-6, which was supposedly part of the Central Intelligence Agency. She accepted the offer, and quickly became a field agent. In the pilot, she tells her fiancé Danny that she is a spy. As a result of revealing SD-6's existence to an outsider, her fiancé is murdered by SD-6.

It is then that Sydney is told by her father Jack Bristow (another SD-6 agent) that SD-6 is not part of the CIA; instead, it is part of the Alliance of Twelve, an organization that is an enemy to the United States. Sydney decides to offer her services to the real CIA as a double agent. Her offer is soon accepted, and she begins the long and arduous task of destroying SD-6 from the inside. She quickly learns that her father is also a double agent for the CIA.

Major plotlines from season 1 include Sydney hiding her triple-identity from her friends, both in her personal life and in her SD-6 job, Will Tippin's investigation into Danny's death, and the past antics of Sydney's mother. Sub-plots included Sydney's friendship with Francie, Francie's romantic relationship with Charlie, and Sydney's developing relationship with her CIA handler Michael Vaughn, of whom she is skeptical at first but grows to trust as her life becomes increasingly stressful. Season One focuses on the development of Sydney's character, and allows the audience to become familiar with her. The other seasons share the same theme of a guest star appearing throughout the entire season.
