Episode 5: Before We Die
Poor waiter/gangster/mole Christian is suffering. All that undercover work informing on the Croatian crime gang has taken a toll, and they peer-pressured him to commit a murder that now haunts him. Christian’s mother (who isn’t technically his police handler but might as well be) offers tough-love advice: “You’re hard wired to survive and you did.”
But I’m not sure he’s cut out for this kind of thing, and to make matters worse, his beloved Bianca is ghosting him. (It was her fiancé he killed, technically.) She, meanwhile, must cope with a family celebration and some amateur espionage of her own.
As the plot inches forward, there are off-notes and tinkling implausibilities that may distract you. Best to focus on the fact that in a week when schedules are swamped with football, we’re not spoilt for choice on the drama front. Even if this is one where the line “If I told you that I’d have to kill you” can still make the grade.
