Series 2, Episode 9

It is reported that Customs and Excise have managed to foil a plot by Columbian terrorists to bring a huge cache of weapons into Britain.

Image 1: Episode 9

MI5 were on the trail of a gang of Columbians known as the Chala Cartel. They were already funding themselves with drugs, but the team had got wind of a plan to bring a haul of ground to air missiles into the country. Since customs and excise were already watching the gang Tom piggybacked onto their op. Things went sour very quickly when the gang killed 8 members of customs in just one night.

Tom was disturbed by what had happened and was determined to get results on the case. The leader of the Chala Cartel was called Rafa, and the team decided his girlfriend, Mariella was the weakest link. They followed her and quickly discovered she was passing information between Rafa and the head of a major oil company, Vaughan. It was clear that the Chala Cartel had a lot of very high connections.

Tom and Zoe discovered Rafa had killed Mariella's entire family and set himself up as her saviour. This explained her loyalty to him, and also exposed her Achilles heel. They went to work undercover and soon had Mariella eating out of their hands.

It all seemed to be going well, but the operation was compromised by Tessa's dirty dealings. She had tricked Sam into believing she was Harry's boss, and was getting Sam to pass on everything to do with the job. When Harry discovered what was happening it became a personal grudge match, and he set wheels in motion to scupper her plans.

Unfortunately as Harry set out for revenge, Tessa informed the targets that MI5 were on to them with tragic consequences. Rafa killed Mariella. MI5 then had Rafa killed, and Harry deemed the operation a success, after all, he'd beaten Tessa again. Tom didn't see things quite so simply. Harry's game playing had caused the death of an innocent girl and he really began to doubt the wisdom of Harry's leadership.
