The Special: Part II

Adam

Adam persuades Tash (Martine McCutcheon) to act as a distraction, before bursting in with a firebomb and saving Zaf. They capture the two men and Adam holds one over a balcony to try and persuade him to talk. He refuses and Adam lets him fall to his death. After the same threat the second man tells all he knows.

Tash

Harry has a meeting with the Home Secretary, and offers his resignation. He feels he cannot continue with Juliet's threats to expose his past mistakes. On the way back he chats to the American Richard Boyd and finds he is less loyal to his country than one might have hoped.

Malcolm and Colin work with Tash to help her identify the man she saw. They get along well and they let her try on a special jacket with inbuilt transmitter and tracking device. Meanwhile there is another attempt on Professor Curtis's life.

Professor Curtis

Adam and Zaf find the second bomb just in time. Adam realises that they can't stop Shining Dawn until they find the mole who has been leaking information to these terrorists.

It has to be someone new to the Grid and he and Harry accuse Juliet. She is furious, and proves it's not her by showing how much work she's done to identify the bomb-maker, Owen Forster. She also tells them that this man was once arrested by the Americans, but let go because he was not considered a threat. The man who let him go was Richard Boyd - now leading the American team on the Grid....

Boyd realises that the team are on to him. He finds Tash and pretends he's come to drive her home. Luckily she smells a rat and is still wearing the special tracking jacket. Zaf and Adam catch him and release Tash. They force Boyd to lead them to the bomb maker.

Tash

They discover the next bomb is in a hospital, and cannot be defused without a codeword. When Adam finds the bomb, he also finds Tash has been wired into it. Zaf evacuates the building while Adam tries to comfort Tash. Back at Thames House, Juliet, Ruth and Harry use Curtis to try and get the password out of Forster - but Forster won't give anything away.

Adam realises there is no way he can free Tash in time, and agrees to stay with her rather than leave her to be blown up all alone. With seconds to spare, Curtis works out that the password could be Kronos2 - Adam types it in, the timer stops counting down, and he and Tash are saved.
