Spooks s10 ep 3
The problem: “An anarchist terrorist in possession of nuclear material, whereabouts unknown.”
Except maybe by his sister… Poor Dimitri. He finally gets his moment to shine and Erin decides to use it to pimp him out. For someone who was so teary-eyed about burning an asset last week, she was pretty cavalier about sacrificing the poor girl’s heart and an underling’s body in pursuit of the common good, wasn’t she? I’m pretty sure there’s cause for a formal grievance in there, Dimitri…
The honey-trap angle reminded me a lot of Ros’s undercover (sorry) mission with the guy who was going to bankrupt the UK a couple of seasons ago, except that Ros, as usual, did the dirty work herself. Sigh. I miss Ros. And Lucas. And Tariq. And…. *wipes away tear*
Sigh again. Anyway, as far as this particular episode goes, the main story was a decent idea, unfortunately diluted by too much time spent with the appallingly dull Sasha and Elena and frankly not enough time on the actual preventing of a radiological disaster. And the bait and switch was so obvious, I was embarassed none of our highly-trained operatives saw it coming. Especially you, Dimitri. I mean, I expect this sort of gullibility from Calum and Erin, but you were trained by Lucas and Ros, man. Must do better.
