The team tracked the nuke to Goa, India where they found out a group of terrorists had kidnapped three scientists. One scientist managed to escape and they tracked him down. He told the team that the terrorists planned to turn the nuke into two smaller portable nukes.
The terrorists found them so the team fled. New intelligence officer LCpl. Manisha Chetri (Varada Sethu) tried to direct the team to safety but instead led them into the middle of a street festival. They tried to escape on foot but a terrorist named Gopan (Rudi Dharmalingam) got to the scientist and stabbed him to death. Before he died he named Anjali Vartak (Shivani Ghai) as being involved with Gopan.
The team got invites to a fundraiser ran by Vartak’s charity. The plan was to steal her financial records. Mac was to try and clone the hard drives in the offices but he found her lawyer, Connor Ryan (Aidan McCardle) had already destroyed them. After finding out he had been ripping off Vartak, Mac decided to extract him.
Elsewhere in the episode, Zarkova (Yasemin Allen) was caught trying to steal intel from Section 20. Her explanation was that she had to prove to her boss that they were making progress to maintain her cover.
At the end of the episode, Coltrane (Jamie Bamber), Chetri and Zarkova came under attack by Gopan and his men. They fought their way outside and Coltrane and Chetri made it to their vehicle. Zarkova wasn’t so lucky and was shot by Gopan.
In the fourth episode, Section 20’s hunt for the repurposed warhead builds to a thrilling a showdown with Anjali Vartak, armed with a dirty bomb and determined to carry out a terrorist attack on a Muslim enclave. All the more troubling, Katrina’s alliance with Section 20 looks uncertain when she alone learns from Gopan that Kingfisher may be part of a Russian plot – something she fails to share with her new teammates.
