Is­raeli spy­mas­ter Kurtz knows time is run­ning out to get the in­for­ma­tion he needs from Pales­tinian ter­ror­ist Salim in this week’s episode. With Char­lie about to set out on a solo mis­sion across Eu­rope, Kurtz knows he must act fast, or leave her dan­ger­ously ex­posed!

Char­lie sets off on her first un­der­cover op­er­a­tion af­ter agree­ing to drive a car packed with ex­plo­sives across Eu­rope, in this week’s episode.

But will she be able to hold her nerve and prove her­self wor­thy to the Pales­tinian ter­ror net­work which she’s hop­ing to in­fil­trate? Af­ter pre­par­ing her for the role, Is­raeli in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cer Becker (Alexan­der Skars­gård) hopes his faith in Char­lie (Florence Pugh) hasn’t been mis­placed…

Next step

‘Char­lie knows ev­ery­thing there is to know about Khalil’s lit­tle brother Salim,’ says Alexan­der. ‘Now she is about to go into the “The­atre of the Real” and once she does, there’s no turn­ing back. The ter­ror net­work will show her no mercy if they re­alise she’s not Salim’s real girl­friend!’

Yet with Salim still be­ing held by Is­raeli spy­mas­ter Kurtz and his team in Mu­nich, Char­lie is tor­mented with guilt about what will hap­pen to the cap­tured Pales­tinian if her mis­sion is suc­cess­ful. What’s more, she’s also feel­ing in­creas­ingly con­flicted about her feel­ings for Becker.

‘Char­lie doesn’t know how much to trust Becker,’ ex­plains Alexan­der. ‘Is he be­ing hon­est or just us­ing her?’

Mean­while, there are dis­agree­ments be­tween

Becker and Kurtz (Michael Shan­non). ‘Becker wants to op­er­ate like a sur­geon, not a butcher,’ says Alexan­der. ‘But Kurtz knows Char­lie is ex­posed and is de­ter­mined to give her all the pro­tec­tion she needs.’

Risky mis­sion… Will new re­cruit Char­lie stay out of harm’s way?

Pic­ture this… Can Becker and Char­lie trust each other?
