Episode 1.7
11 February 2018 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

As Rebecca recovers in hospital having lost her baby. Alex and Semiyon meet Vadim for a truce. The attempted kill made international headlines and the Russian government are not happy with Vadim hence why he has come to the table for talks.

However Alex in unconvinced that Vadim really means to keep the peace. Semiyon takes a crafty revenge on Alex by telling Vadim that Alex has other backers. Alex is not even closer with the Mexican cartels and they have ignited interest to do business with other Russian gangs who are Vadim's rivals.

Vadim only really has one love in his life, his daughter. He tells Alex how he lost his wife and in a rare moment of conscience he halts an assassination attempt on Alex at the last minute. However with Alex heading for Moscow he will find that Vadim is a dangerous enemy who is hell bent for vengeance.

We find out for sure that Semiyon is a snake in the grass, at least Alex has found a way to rescue Lyudmilla from his clutches. However despite having some good action set pieces in each episode, it is not enough to sustain what is supposed to be a pacy thriller.
