Quick Alias question
Who is older - Syd or Nadia? By how many years? Was Irina still married to Jack when she did the dastardly deed with Arvin? How come he never noticed a pregnancy?

Syd is supposed to be older.

As to your other questions - that's been making Alias fans' brains explode for about a year now. I can't comment too much further without going into spoiler zones, and I'm not sure how much you've seen.

Thank, LA! I've watched up until the end of Season 4, so never fear.

Sydney is older by five to six years, if you work on the assumption that Irina was not showing any symptoms of pregnancy when she killed off "Laura" and left, which means she can't have been pregnant for more than a month or three at the maximum.

(That's going by Syd's age when her mother "died" as given in the first season.)

As to when exactly the Irina/Arvin affair started: we don't know. But yes, definitely married to Jack during same, and definitely still "Laura". Yahtzee has the intriguing theory - which makes sense - that if Jack did indeed tell Irina he'd quit the CIA for her and Sydney's sake, as indicated in "Mirage" in season 4, Irina might have tried to justify to her superiors to leave in the US nonetheless by finding a second source of information. (Because obviously, private citizen Bristow was worthless from the KGB pov.) It would also fit with Sloane's statement that Irina slept with him for information (given in "Hourglass", season 3).

(But since obviously Arvin even pre-Evil Overlord stage would have been far less inclined to share info than Jack pre-Laura trauma, that didn't work out, and Irina had to go nonetheless.)

That sounds about right. I'd like to think that Irina had a very valid reason for cheating on Jack. Thanks, selenak!
