The third episode of this thriller opens with a previously unseen
couple stopping at a road works; a young man starts pounding on the car
window saying that a second man is going to kill him. The woman lets
him into the car and it soon becomes apparent that this was a serious
mistake; not much later they are both dead! Sam meanwhile is going to a
country hotel with the Turners; she is meant to be looking after their
son while they deal with the bidding process for the Pakistani dam.
Here she bumps into somebody from her past; Bernard Faroux, the man she
double-crossed in Tangier shortly before she was shot. He wants her to
give him the bid details, as do the people at Byzantium; the problem is
they are in a sealed vault to which she has no access. Back in London
it becomes clear that Aidan is actually working for MI-6 and somebody
there knows about the plot to kill Sam.
This was another intriguing episode; the opening introduced a new mystery; who were the couple in the car? It later becomes clear who they were but not telling us sooner kept those events mysterious. It was good to see Faroux again as his appearance not only put Sam in danger it did so in a way that meant she knew she was in danger and had to act accordingly. This danger led to an exciting game of cat and mouse in the hotel's maze and a confrontation between Sam and Faroux where she would be given one clue about the people after her; that clue is the word 'Hourglass'. Once again the acting was pretty good and the story was complicated enough to keep it interesting without being so convoluted that it became confusing. When it was all over I was left wanting to know what happened next; always a good thing in a serial.
