Storyline

Harry Pearce is less than pleased when he learns that MI-5 video surveillance of a suspected terrorist, Khalid Mansour, has been ruled inadmissible and that Mansour will be set free. On the steps of the courthouse moments after being released however, Mansour is shot and killed with the assassin, Daniel Ellis, promptly committing suicide. After a second suicide attack claims the life of a radical Muslim cleric, an anti-Islamic organization known as the Sons of Phineas claim responsibility. Though they have no information on the organization, MI-5 focuses on Steven Paynton, who runs a homeless shelter where both men lived before their attacks. They set up a sting to try and get Paynton to give them information on others he may have recruited to his cause. With racial tensions rising across Britain, Adam goes undercover to rope him in but when his young son disappears, he fears his job may cost him what is left of his family. Written by garykmcd

In the foreground, slightly out of focus can be seen Ruth Evershed at her desk despite the fact the character left the series three episodes earlier. See more »

Quotes

Charles Lee: If a mosque gets blown up tomorrow morning because your information on Paynton's plans was incomplete, you'll be hung out to dry.
Harry Pearce: A man in my position faces that possibility every day, Mr. Lee. You learn to let it not cloud your judgement.
