Synopsis: Samuel Blake ups his game, forcing Harry to make a near-impossible decision. Meanwhile, the bracelet’s power begins to wane.
Review: Eve barely escapes capture by Samuel Blake’s people and somehow managed to lose Harry’s gun in the process, which could prove very useful to the Police and MI6 who are out to get him. To that end, Harry tells Eve to try and gain Samuel Blake’s trust in much the same way as she got his trust. This doesn’t go down to well, but ultimately Eve winds up following through.
In the meantime, Suri is anxious to find out what her new boss DSI Gray has on Harry or who she is secretly working with. The scene where Suri is searching Gray’s office is one of the funniest in the episode. Just watch out for what Orwell does to buy Suri a little time and the reaction after the fact.
Ultimately the trail that Suri is on leads her to Samuel Blake. The two play nice and Suri tries to get Blake onside by asking him to help in her search for Harry. Little does she know that she is about to become the bait in an elaborate trap given that Blake is as bent as they come.
Elsewhere, Harry uses some underworld contacts to help him break into the police evidence building so he can retrieve the gun that Eve lost. He tries to use his bracelet, but it is apparent that it is becoming less and less reliable, which means that Harry is likely getting close to relying on pure fate as opposed to luck.
Much like last week. This ends with another meeting between Samuel Blake and Harry, but like last time it is Blake that has the winning hand and forces Harry to choose between two very important people in his life. Harry makes his choice, but we’re all left wondering if the person he chose to let go of will somehow live to appear in next week as in does Blake have another use for her?
Overall. This was another decent episode, but structurally it played out in a very similar way to last week. I’m hoping that next weeks episode will see a few more details revealed in regards to the real identity of Samuel Blake. What does he have against Harry and the bracelets that hasn’t been revealed yet?
