Synopsis


Episode 1
Following "Lesser of Two Evils", the bomb in Tom Quinn's (Matthew Macfadyen) house fails to detonate, but another device goes off elsewhere, killing the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland. Patrick McCann (Lorcan Cranitch) is killed by his group for collaborating with Tom. Section D are then focused on a bombing at a secret military base in Longcross, when it has emerged that wanted Serbian war criminal Miroslav Gradic (Karel Roden) has entered Britain. Gradic's group has stolen munitions from Longcross and a military convoy to attack the British. Zoe Reynolds (Keeley Hawes) goes undercover to befriend Radovan Petcovic (Dragan Mianovi), a Serbian embassy employee and Gradic's nephew. Following the uncovering of a mole, Jim North (Benedict Cumberbatch), Section D learn that Rado is communicating with Gradic via newspaper classifieds. Malcolm Wynn-Jones (Hugh Simon) decodes the next target; the Cabinet Office Briefing Rooms (COBRA) meeting Harry Pearce (Peter Firth) is attending; the team prevent the attack and arrest Gradic. Ellie Simm (Esther Hall) breaks up with Tom, realising that he will always take work over her.

Episode 2
Section D investigate the activities of radicalised mullah Mohammed Rachid (Qarie Marshall), and learn he is using a Birmingham mosque to recruit young suicide bombers. After the section's last asset is discovered and tortured, recent transfer from Government Communications Headquarters (GCHQ) Ruth Evershed (Nicola Walker) finds another potential asset, Algerian agent Muhammed Ibhn Khaldun (Alexander Siddig) who faked his death to his agency and smuggled himself to the UK to defect. His defection soon attracts the attention of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), who also wish to use him. Khaldun infiltrates the cell and gains Rachid's trust, ultimately resulting in the mullah's arrest after the team find hidden bomb vests in his prayer room. Khaldun attempts to stop a 16-year-old boy from blowing himself up, but he fails and sacrifices himself to prevent any nearby casualties. Meanwhile, in an effort to get over Ellie, Tom starts a relationship with a doctor, Vicky Westbrook (Natasha Little), who was introduced in the previous episode.

Episode 3
A computer hacker threatens to breach MI5's firewalls, putting the lives of two cornered agents in Pakistan at risk. When Section D suspect Gordon Blaney (Chris Fairbank), a member of the Socialist Freedom Movement, an anti-government group, Zoe is tasked to go undercover as a teacher in the same comprehensive school Blaney teaches. Meanwhile, Danny Hunter (David Oyelowo) works to infiltrate a left-wing newspaper where the socialists operate. It is later revealed that Blaney and the socialists were elaborately framed by the hacker, pupil Noah Gleeson (Augustus Prew). Noah is the son of Victor Gleeson, a former MI5 officer stationed in Greece; the boy underwent a psychotic break after witnessing Victor's murder. Now guided by the hallucinations of his dead father, Noah occupies Section D with a threat against the school as a diversion to gather Malcolm's access codes for MI5's "inner sanctum" (its mainframe). Tom and Zoe are able to stop him from succeeding however, and Noah is apprehended and sent to a psychiatric hospital.

Episode 4
Banker Sir Richard Bowman (Oliver Ford Davies) and treasurer Amanda Roke (Sophie Okonedo) request Harry's help when stock trader John Lightwood stole $1 billion from Bowman's bank and is missing. When Lightwood is found literally crucified, Danny goes undercover as his replacement and learns Lightwood was laundering money for the Russian mafia, who stole $20 billion of aid money from the Americans, to a highly secure Swiss bank, and was killed for stealing from them. When Zoe is found to be having an unauthorised fling with a banker from the Swiss bank, Carlo Franceschini (Enzo Cilenti), Tom blackmails him to reveal the name of the mafia account holder; Victor Shvitkoy (Rade erbedija). Bowman and Roke admit they are in league with Shvitkoy, but planned to subvert him and steal the money back to the Americans. When Bowman tells Section D the account number of the remaining $19 billion, Danny manages to recover it. Danny is later kidnapped by fellow trader Maxim Baxter (Julie Cox), revealed to be Shvitkoy's daughter. MI5 track and rescue him, and arrest Shvitkoy. Meanwhile, Tom discovers that Ruth is leaking information to GCHQ in exchange for her transfer to MI5, which jeapordised the operation. Tom decides to put her on probation.

Episode 5
The Grid (the team's offices) is in lockdown for an EERIE (Extreme Emergency Response Initiative Exercise) drill of a hypothetical terrorist attack in London. With Tom as the emergency executive officer, the team discovers that VX nerve gas has been released and spreading across the city, and that the attack is real. The Grid loses power, and the trapped team try to make contact with the outside world. They soon exhibit signs of cabin fever, especially after they find out that Harry is infected. Some of the team believe the gas has leaked itself into the Grid, and two Home Office executives, Bridget Macy (Annabelle Apsion) and Mark Woolley (Mark Lewis Jones), attempt to escape. After Tom is forced to shoot them, it is revealed that the threat was a drill all along, and Tom receives top marks for his leadership skills (the guns were loaded with dummy rounds). Tom decides to break up with troublesome Vicky.

Episode 6
When United States President George W. Bush is making a brief unannounced visit to the UK, CIA liaison Christine Dale (Megan Dodds) works with MI5 to ensure the visit goes smoothly. Vicky, bitter over the break up, releases Tom's address and phone numbers on personal advertisements, falsely promoting him as a call boy, on telephone boxes and nightclubs throughout Soho, garnering him some unwanted attention. He has Sam Buxton (Shauna Macdonald) find and destroy all copies of the ads, while Christine confronts Vicky to make her stop the harassment when the latter is jeapordising the operation. The team find a suspicious microlight flying towards Chequers, the Prime Minister's country retreat, as a credible threat is made, but it is revealed to be a false alarm. At the end of the episode, Tom and Christine begin seeing each other.

Episode 7
Harry's house is burgled by small time thieves, with a briefcase among the items stolen. The briefcase contains files relating to "Firestorm", a specialist electromagnetic pulse weapon developed by rogue French scientist Henri Durand (Geoff Cotton), who is selling the weapon to Chinese buyers. Harry and Tom find the thieves, among them 14-year-old Jason James "JJ" Franks (Heshima Thompson), and discover that they burned the files, including the codes needed to steal Firestorm. When it is revealed that JJ knows the codes thanks to his eidetic memory, Tom decides to use him as a clean skin, a deniable asset to steal Firestorm from Durand's labs before Jean-Luc Goyon (Philippe Caroit) of the Directorate-General for External Security (DGSE) can steal it first. JJ reluctantly agrees to the mission despite reservations that MI5 would deny his existence should he be caught. The boy succeeds and steals the laptop with the Firestorm files while Jean-Luc has Durand assassinated. JJ hands over the laptop to Tom, who offers him a future with MI5. However, JJ turns down the offer.

Episode 8
Running on a tip from Corporal Eric Woods (Leo Bill) that Samuel Curtis (Reece Dinsdale), a decorated British Army Major, is plotting a mutiny to get the government to make improvements to the military, Tom goes undercover as a soldier to uncover the plot. After two weeks, an increasingly frustrated Tom finds no evidence that Curtis is planning such an action, only that he is starting a petition instead. However, during an interrogation exercise, Woods unintentionally reveals the MI5 operation to Curtis, who is indeed plotting a mutiny. Curtis captures Tom and Danny and has his platoon hijack a shipment of radioactive waste. The major gives the government an ultimatum; start improving the military within one hour, or he would blow the waste. As Tom gets Curtis to stand down, Harry orders a sniper to kill him. This action angers Tom, who begins to be disillusioned by his work. Harry orders Tom to end his relationship with Christine. Meanwhile, Ruth fears she will be transferred back to GCHQ as they put her under review. Harry gets Ruth a secondment in order for her to stay.

Episode 9
Eight Customs & Excise officers are killed by the Chala, a ruthless Colombian cartel led by Rafa Morrientes (Daniel Cerqueira), who is in England to meet with powerful businessman Ross Vaughan (Michael Cochrane). Tom and Zoe go undercover to befriend Mariela Hernandez (Sophie Lombard), Rafa's girlfriend, while Danny spies on Rafa's meetings. There, Section D learn that Rafa is trading cocaine for surface-to-air missiles with Vaughan's help. Meanwhile, Sam unknowingly spies on the team for former officer Tessa Phillips (Jenny Agutter), who was fired for running phantom agents for monetary gain, under the guise that she is Harry's superior. Tessa offers to supply the team with information needed to stop Rafa from her Spanish contacts. However, Harry decides to suspend her contacts. After Tom and Zoe turn Mariela to seduce Vaughan for information, Tessa exposes Mariela's treachery to Rafa, who murders her. After the deal for the missiles is intercepted, an unidentified party kills Rafa, while Tessa flees the country to escape Harry's reprisal. Tom is disgusted to hear from Harry that they will not pursue Vaughan any further, placing the two at further odds. Tom continues to see Christine behind Harry's back.

Episode 10
Christine hands Tom a CIA document indicating that a terrorist cell is hiring Michael Karharias, an American assassin, to kill a member of the British Cabinet. Tom enlists the help of Danny and Zoe to catch Karharias. Danny follows Tom and finds he is creating a legend, something Tom denies. When they follow CIA agent Zeigler (Tomas Arana), the three are captured, where it appears their captors are working with Tom.
