The Special: Part I

Zaf and Adam

The team all attend Danny's funeral, but the church is rocked by the sound of a distant explosion and suddenly all their bleepers go off. There has been a bomb in a crowded market and an American group, Shining Dawn, claim responsibility. They demand the release of their leader, and say that until their demands are met, another bomb will go off somewhere in London, every 10 hours, designed to cause maximum casualties.

Harry and the Americans

The Grid is swamped with newcomers, including a team of American agents, lead by Richard Boyd, who have special experience in dealing with Shining Dawn. They say the key to solving the case is to find the bomb-maker. An English woman and Washington agent, Juliet Shaw, is also brought in. She and Harry clearly have history, and she warns him that she knows all about some of his past mistakes, so he better jump when she tells him.

Ruth is sent to Oxfordshire to question an academic, Curtis, who is known to have shared views with Shining Dawn. He has also been in contact with the leaders. After an attempt is made to kill him, he and Ruth flee to a safe house, but he is not keen to help. Adam and Zaf bring a man in for questioning, but a sniper kills the suspect as they take him to the car. It is too much of a coincidence and Adam is convinced there must be a mole in the team.

Harry and Juliet

The team from Shining Dawn arrive at a station to plant a bomb. A key member bumps into a waitress on the platform and she gets a good look at his face, unaware of what or who he is. Luckily Adam and the team work out where the bomb is and defuse it just in time.

Adam and Zaf head out to fetch the waitress, Tash (Martine McCutcheon). She's the only witness they have, so crucial to the investigation. On the way Adam is called to a warehouse where suspicious activity has been spotted, but Zaf offers to go instead.

Zaf

As Adam drives Tash, back to Thames House he gets a call from Zaf and realises he's in trouble. He rushes to the warehouse to find Zaf's been tied up by armed gunmen who believe he's Adam Carter. With Tash in tow, he is outside the door to the room, when he hears Zaf agree to tell the gunmen exactly who he really is.
