Spooks Season 8, Episode 3 – The official details are as follows…
The exclusive and powerful Bendorf group, made up of the eight richest men in the world, is meeting on British soil and Section D must find out what is being planned, as the spy drama continues.
Ros is sent undercover and attends the meeting, but what should be a routine operation becomes a life-or-death situation when a group of armed terrorists take everyone hostage.
The hostages, including Ros, are being held in an underground bunker – there’s only one way out and it’s rigged with explosives.
Harry sends in Lucas and Jo to assess the situation and, as they arrive at the scene, the situation worsens when leader of the terrorists, Finn Lambert, puts Thomas Mickelson from the Bendorf group on trial and broadcasts it live to the world, online.
Back on the Grid, Harry, Ruth and Tariq watch in horror as Lambert produces damning evidence of Mickelson’s alleged crimes before inviting the public to vote on the outcome of the trial. The verdict is a resounding “guilty” and the team waits nervously to see what Lambert will do next.
Section D has to stop him and it seems their only hope is if Ros can persuade Lambert’s girlfriend, Nina, to help her. However, as things start to go her way the tables suddenly turn – leaving one of Section D in an impossible situation.
Ros is played by Hermione Norris, Harry by Peter Firth, Lucas by Richard Armitage, Jo by Miranda Raison, Finn Lambert by Pascal Langdale, Thomas Mickelson by Tom Mannion, Ruth by Nicola Walker, Tariq by Shazad Latif and Nina by Antonia Campbell-Hughes.
