Gunfights galore!
13 December 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

By golly, if you like action this is the one for you with no less than 4 gunbattles in the ep.

Cowley doesn't think about dying. He tells Bodie and Doyle they are his top men which is unusually giving of him.

Bodie and Doyle have 3 rounds of drinks and drive off to a gunfight, all for under £5! Bodie drinks Harvey Wallbangers and Skol lager, how 70s. Molensky compares CI5 to the Soviets and the way they treat him he's not far wrong. Both Bodie and Doyle demonstrate a rather professional handgrip.

Must say I'm still a little puzzled by the overall plot? The best I can figure is Ruduk was genuinely on the run and Meredith and Kodai were in it with him. They needed money to get away and everything else was a ruse to convince Cowley they were genuine. Kodai meanwhile has a grudge against Cowley and decides to kill 2 birds with one stone by offing him at the airfield?
