Series 3, Episode 7

The team are thrown into emergency mode when chaos starts to envelop the country. Benign medicines have been laced with lethal acid. Bank balances are being wiped out. Automated traffic systems malfunction at will. Hackers have infiltrated highly sensitive systems to cause mayhem, but who are they and what do they want?

Danny

Danny is devastated at losing Zoe from his life. Struggling to suppress his bitterness at work he also has to contend with Will's bewilderment and growing anger. Will is demanding to know where Zoe is and threatens to go the press, despite having signed the Official Secrets Act. Danny advises him that bringing the issue out into the open will only serve to have Zoe sought out and incarcerated.

Danny

Meanwhile, the Government are sticking with the theory that the hackers are Muslim terrorists despite evidence to the contrary. The former theory suits them better in the current climate...

Colin Wells, with help from GCHQ computer expert Andrew Forrestal, manages to locate the hacker to the Muslim Cultural Centre. But a raid reveals nothing. The hacker is in the area, just not there... and what's more, he has to be an 'insider'. But who is it?

Ruth's research uncovers the fact that the Islam words used by the hacker are only copied from an original source. The hacker isn't Muslim, but they do have a keen interest in its history and language.

Adam

Andrew Forrestal catches the eye of Ruth and she's thrilled when he invites her for a meal. Over dinner he quotes Islamic literature and the horror slowly dawns on Ruth - Andrew is the hacker. She makes a run for it but is caught. Andrew's bitterness at having his technical genius go unrecognised has turned into something considerably deadlier. He helped create an unsurpassed hacking device but received no credit.

Back at Thames House the team receive a demand for £100 million in diamonds. Not yet realising Ruth is held hostage, they lace the diamonds in poison. Just in time, they get to Ruth's house - Andrew's touched the diamonds and is dead.

Ruth

Danny takes Andrew's laptop containing the hacking device and throws it into the Thames. The Goverment is only too keen to get their hands on it and wreak havoc with the power and this can't be allowed.

Back at home, Danny receives a postcard from Zoe. Hidden within is a photograph of Zoe and Will together in Chile. Danny knows he made the right decision to finally tell Will everything, despite being advised not to by Harry.
