Storyline

Acting independently of each other Doyle and Bodie pose as hitmen to infiltrate a mysterious group of assassins whose targets are all retired government officials. Bodie's hit, Liz Walsh, an old colleague of Cowley, colludes in her supposed death for the publicity and helps Cowley work out who could possibly want to get rid of a group of apparently insignificant people. MI6 interference also hampers the operation until Liz exposes a possible traitor. Written by don @ minifie-1

Trivia

This episode was the last to be filmed and ended with a cliffhanger: did Bodie and Doyle die from the blast when Dawson's boat exploded? However due to a scheduling error, the episode was shown mid-way through Season 5 instead of as the very last episode. See more »

Goofs

In the scene where Bodie and Williams drive to Miss Walsh's house to kill her, there is a brief shot of the car with Williams in the back and Doyle in the front passenger seat. This is probably supposed to be part of the later sequence where Bodie and Williams take Doyle to the woods to shoot him, inserted in the wrong place during editing. See more »
