Storyline

A Section 20 mission in Vienna is diverted when the team learns that four European Union officials - including MI6 agent John Allen, who has firsthand knowledge of Latif and Project Dawn - have been kidnapped in Kosovo. Behind the abduction is a Kosovo heroin overlord, Fatmir Hasani, who seeks the release of his cousin Agim Rama, an imprisoned terrorist involved in multiple international attacks. Under the auspices of Kosovo peacekeeping forces (KFOR) led by U.S. Major Donoghue, Scott and Stonebridge are airlifted with Rama into a Kosovo forest in an attempt to make an exchange. But an unforeseen firefight turns the site into chaos, and Scott and Stonebridge's efforts to escape with the hostages are derailed when they reach the KFOR recovery site - and find it abandoned. Charging sexy hostage Dana Van Rijn to look after her companions, Scott and Stonebridge trek to a Hasani heroin facility, where they hope to hijack a truck to transport the group to safety.

Extraction Point
17 March 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The episode hits all the right buttons, and a few wrong ones. It has the foreign land of danger, intriguing villain, daring mission, and a compelling tension in Scott's character. Unfortunately it also has a big plot-hole. The crux of the episode should come down to Scott being overtaken by his lust or vanity, getting them into an inescapable trouble. Once the dangerous duo have rescued the hostages they trek out on their own and are faced with the perils of exiting the country. Unfortunately the climax doesn't come down to Scott and his actions undermining their escape. It comes down to the pair becoming uncharacteristically, which is convenient to the plot, lackadaisical in assessing danger. The tension seems to just evaporate right after they obtain the hostages, like they've already made it out of danger, but really kicks into high gear when they trust the Army team that has just abandoned the rendezvous pickup and they relax. This contrasts the Zimbabawe episodes of Season 1 where all the tension was simply being in country. Entirely different people behind that show, but the concept is pretty simple.

All the makings of a great episode are here. And the distracted characteristic is not unlike the duo in prior episodes, but it is contrary to them in the beginning of this episode, where they outsmart a setup intending to kill the freed prisoner, and later at the onset of arriving in Kosovo where they split up to hedge the departmental leak. This type of intuition in the characters is great. Unfortunately it isn't carried through into the climax.

In all still a good episode, well worth watching, and much better than most spy/war shows, with the heroes delivering their typical cowboy swagger and punch-lines.

It just seems like the writers of Season 2 are getting more and more lackadaisical or time-crunched. Maybe it will get better in Season 3 and 4.
