User reviews



I have to be honest, this as with the previous episode is good, watchable, but there are segments that beggar belief. I'm enjoying the story, it's definitely deep, hugely politically charged and very well acted, but it's the relationships and behaviour between the characters I found really odd. How much more can poor Mona and her poor family take, it seems like if it can possibly go wrong, it will, there are possibly a few too many random threads occuring.


Mona and Guy reunite when their son gets involved in a scuffle at school. More importantly their respective plots converge.

Guy's lobbying activities pays off but an important project that gets the go ahead involves a major terrorist funder. Meanwhile Danish needs to get out from his terrorist handlers. He witnesses someone close to him get beaten to a pulp then finds a way to create an explosion so he can call his aunt Mona to assist.

At least things happened in this episode but it is mired with a lot of stupidity between the characters.
