The vault that enables his arrival is the perfect, plot-hole-less excuse for adding a volatile ghost to the mix this late in the game. It also allows this sitcom to explore the mythology it flippantly throws around in earnest.
The Box (Part 2) is the 13th episode of Season 1 of Alias. Vaughn disobeys the CIA in order to infiltrate SD-6 and save Sydney. Sydney and her father continue with their rescue of their fellow co-workers, but matters are complicated when Jack is captured by the assailants. The megalomaniac McKenas Cole continues torturing Sloane in order to obtain a mysterious item stored inside the SD-6 vault. Elsewhere, Will continues to investigate SD-6 after he's given a key to a locker at the pier and meets with Kelly McNeil with regards to her mother's autopsy.
Sydney arrives at her first C4 charge and prepares to disarm it. Meanwhile, Toni is getting closer and closer to unlocking the vault while Cole is still torturing Sloane. Sloane chastises Cole for what happened to the men he lead to slaughter and in return, he inserts another needle into his arm. While Chopper talks to Gonov, Marcus acquires the PDA and sends the message to Langley for help. Weiss tells Vaughn about the message and he tells Arthur Devlin about it, while Steven Haladki tries to coerce Devlin to wait. Devlin agrees with Haladki, and Vaughn storms out of the office, ready to go into SD-6 himself. Vaughn tells Weiss if he's not back in a couple of hours, he's probably dead.
Toni gets closer and closer to unlocking the vault while Sydney begins to disarm the block of C4. While doing so, she comes into contact with Tchen and knocks him out. Back in the parking lot, Cole's spotter finds Vaughn patrolling the area. Vaughn tells him he's a federal agent and to step outside the van, but Vaughn knows he's with Cole and attacks him, shooting him with his gun. Vaughn calls Haladki and tells him he's at SD-6 alone and to tell Devlin to send backup. Meanwhile, Sydney tells Tchen to tell Cole over the radio he's just searching the area, but he tells her "Screw you." and she punches him in the face.
Cole is getting edgy after Tchen disappears and Toni reassures him that the vault is close to opening. She goes to look for Tchen herself. While Sydney is searching for the charge, she's surprised to find Vaughn there. Both of them reach the C4 charge and with carefully, steady hands, Sydney deactivates the charge...just in time for Toni to show up.
Cole inserts another needle into Sloane's neck and Sloane finally finds out that Cole broke when he was captured. Cole tells Sloane over and over to shut up, but Sloane keeps telling him he cried like a baby and told them everything. While Toni was yelling at him to get to the vault, Cole shouted, "Shut up!" and shot her three times in anger.
Marcus and Sydney fail to subdue Cole and Jack rushes to deactivate the C4 falisafe, which he does just as Cole enters the vault. Inside, he finds a Rambaldi artifact and flees SD-6, only to be stopped when Vaughn and several CIA agents shoot at his escape van. Cole tries to run on foot, but Sydney appears from behind and viciously attacks him, kicking him in the face and knocking him out. Cole is taken into custody and Vaughn thanks Sydney, because she was the reason why they still have the Rambaldi artifact.

With Soledad Marquesa still at large, Nick and Hank go to his last known location: a hotel room. No one is there, but they do find some clothes and a suitcase. The suitcase contains a film reel with film in it and two letters concerning the coins. One letter is in German from 1943 and the other is in English from 1945. The one in English from the Office of Strategic Services is about the coins. It says that the coins are made of gold, arsenic, and mercury. They are not to be handled, they were transferred in a lead box to an allied headquarters' vault. Ten coins were thought to exist, however they only found three.Hank is convinced that the coins made him act strangely; he also suspects that the Captain has them in his possession.
