Storyline

The American president's unexpected visit to London forces the MI5 and CIA teams to work together.

After some investigations on MI5's part, Harry's instincts are confirmed: the plans of the American President involve a secret meeting between him and the Libyans. After Tom's break-up with Vicky, he is meanwhile facing difficulties from his former girlfriend's revenge plan to hurt Tom. Written by R

Episode 2.6
2 June 2019 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

George W Bush's presidential visits to the UK always seemed to have attracted controversy. It was not entirely due to his middle eastern policies, maybe that he won the presidency without winning the popular vote.

Bush is making an unexpected visit to Britain. Christine Dale the CIA operative is tasked to keep her president safe during his visit and seems to be increasing paranoid. A control freak. She is willing to run a horse and coach through the existing protocols.

A stressful situation for the Spooks team, confounded further with them being psychologically evaluated and Tom is being stalked with a former girlfriend he broke up with.

Dale deals rather directly with the former girlfriend problem. Harry Pearce suspects that there was an hidden agenda with the president's visit to the UK.

A decent episode, with some humour especially as Tom is pestered for supposedly being a sex escort courtesy of her neurotic ex girlfriend. However beneath Dale's bluster there was not much substance to the episode apart from maybe a rogue glider pilot may get shot down.
