Danny burst into an IT fair in North London. He quickly located a machine which was hacking into the MI5 systems and disconnected it. The team knew the hacker would strike again, and had to be stopped. Prime suspect was Gordon Blakeney, a school-teacher. He was at the fair, had a history of left-wing activism, and was connected to a socialist group, the SFM, who were known to want to bring the government down.

Zoe went undercover to work alongside Blakeney at his school while Danny posed as a journalist, and tried to forge links with Red Cry, a paper with links to the SFM. A fake set of roadworks were set up outside the school as a cover for the high-tech surveillance equipment being run by Malcolm.

Zoe forged a bond with Blakeney. Watching an unusual isolated child, Peter, she started to feel she really ought to try and make a difference to the children's lives. Blakeney is cynical, but touched by her kindness, and as she found out more about him, Zoe felt he was not the man they wanted. Nevertheless when he sneaked off in working ours to an old storage area, she followed. Her suspicions are allayed when she discovered him trying to support Peter, who was hiding from bullies.

It was time to strike, so the team raided the offices of Red Cry and arrested Blakeney. Suddenly the system was attacked again. This time, a code suggests there was radioactive material at the school so the area was quickly evacuated. It was Peter who took advantage of the evacuation to sneak into the roadworks and get top secret codes from the computers.

Ruth made the connection. Peter was really Noah Gleeson, computer genius and son of an agent killed in a disastrous operation. Mentally damaged, Noah believed his father was alive, with him and encouraging him to bring MI5 down. He thought this would save other people enduring the horrors he suffered. He was taken away and put into a secure pyschiatric hospital, but he still saw his father, and his father still wanted him to destroy the Spooks …
