Nerve wrecking but superb !
2 December 2015 | by (ireland) – See all my reviews

Oh boy ! What an episode ! I was on the edge of my seat for 50 mins, my palms sweating, jittering. It was a great show in terms of story telling, edginess, wit, twist... superb!

However it stays with you for a while, lingers in your head. Psychological thriller at its best. After what happen in Paris recently, you really keep thinking that ALL OF IT is plausible and there are factions in Europe that are surely thinking about ...That... Is scares the hell out of me.

Danes & Patinkin are back the "dynamite" duo and the tension is palpable, you out to love them, despite her always saying a word to many and him being a cuddly hard a*s. But the palm MUST go to Rupert Friend (Quinn) who is a genius actor. His character is bruised, battered and more... You really feel for him and all is torments. If the tension goes any higher, I will need to get blood pressure pills...can't wait for next week...or can I ?
