There’s not much cheer in this episode – named after an antibiotic that Philip and Elizabeth are taking to avoid succumbing to that biological warfare pathogen that has somehow infected their handler Gabriel. Death hangs over them and over the story. Has Elizabeth been infected too?
We could really do with a bit of dashing spycraft action – or any action – but all we get is FBI lunk Stan trying to back up his suspicions (entirely correct, as it happens) about workmate Martha. Then the story takes an unexpected lurch and we’re reminded that
can really pack a punch.
A devastating glitch during a mission forces Philip, Elizabeth, William and Gabriel to confront the depths of their patriotism, while in Russia, Nina puts her life on the line.
