Storyline

As Nathaniel lies in a hospital bed the wounded abductor in the next ward takes a phone call which results in his killing himself. Nessa is given a new bodyguard, with whom she has sex, but she deduces that he has been sent by Hayden-Hoyle to spy on her whilst Ephra cheats on pregnant wife Rachel with Atika. Police commander Garrett discovers that the kidnappers are ex-Intelligence Corps. Meanwhile Monica accuses MI6 boss Julia Walsh of exploiting Hayden-Hoyle to get rid of Nessa whilst Nessa herself, against the advice of P.A. Frances, distinguishes herself in the House of Lords with her speech on the Palestinian conflict. Hayden-Hoyle interviews Meshal's lover Rebecca Lantham to ascertain if he really killed himself and finds out that she is an FBI agent - which ultimately seals her fate. Nessa receives a mysterious message to tell her that Kasim is alive . Atika's response is to say " They know." Written by don @ minifie-1

The plot thickens
11 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After last week's opening episode more questions are raised; we don't know who the kidnappers are or what they want and the only obvious lead is quickly eliminated; there is even the possibility that the wrong child was taken. The mystery over the 'suicide' of Samir Meshal; his suicide note suggests he was having an affair but his wife is certain that he wasn't; Hugh Hayden-Hoyle of MI6 is inclined to agree with her. The other woman, an American, is in the UK and he confronts her with his beliefs and when they are confirmed he believes she is in danger; another loose end to be cleaned up. Meanwhile there are more hints at protagonist Nessa Stein's secret and how it was connected to events in the Gaza Strip eight years previously.

This was a good second episode; the mystery deepened nicely and more questions were raised. It was nice to see more of Stephen Rea's character, Hayden-Hoyle, as he does such a fine job in the role the scene where he spoke to Meshal's apparent mistress was a delight. It was nice to see more questions being raised concerning Neesa without telling us just what the secret she is determined to keep is; we just know it involves her kidnapping in Gaza. The story continues to be plot rather than action led but that didn't mean there weren't moments of violence. Overall another gripping episode that left me wanting to see more.
