  • While Guillam and Tarr come under pressure, Smiley recounts his one meeting with the Soviet master spy Karla, who is undoubtedly running the spy inside MI6.

  • Smiley and Guillam realise that Tarr has not told them the full story and that his presence in Britain is known to those suspected of being the mole. Smiley also reflects on an encounter he once had with Karla, Moscow Centre's leading strategist.

  • At George's request, Peter Guillam goes to the Circus archives to steal the file on Operation Testify. Before he can get out of the building he's called into a meeting with Percy Alleline and several other senior officers. He's accused of hobnobbing with Ricky Tarr. George tells Guillam of his one and only encounter long ago with Soviet spymaster Karla, the man now controlling the mole inside the circus. In reviewing the information, he concludes there is a direct connection between Source Merlin and the mole Gerald. He's also convinced there is a clear connection to the outcomes of Operation Testify and Jim Prideaux.
