Three Eps in and just as strong?

Three Eps in and just as strong?



What’s It About?

Section D are informed about an Al Qaeda terror campaign targetting London. Roz takes charge of the operation to thwart the attack while Harry pursues a potential leak in the organisation…

Review It

Episode three. The underlying story arc thickens nicely this episode after the stirrings of the first two episodes. I have to say I didn’t see how this was going and I love the Spooks team for always managing to twist the plots. Another all to possible plot forms the core story for the episode and we get a nice glimpse into new agent Ben during the course of an undercover operation.

I have to say that while I enjoyed the story, I found this week a bit slow paced for the most part. Having said that I think it was necessary to have as much development of Ben and his cohorts and the last 15 minutes of the episode were highly charged.

I like seeing the consequences of the MI:5 world through Jo’s current arc. Let’s not forget she was just a journalist before Adam recruited her and hasn’t been hardened to the realities like Roz was during her time in MI:6. I get the feeling that Jo will be going out in style at some point this season, which is a shame on several levels for me.

Overall, a slow start to the episode with some nice plot elements for both the episode and the ongoing arc.

Rate It: 3.5 / 5.
