Episode 5

Having been approached by a desperate Alex and knowing he has nobody else to turn to, Lana makes the instinctive decision to trust and protect him. Her intuition gives the team the upper hand and produces new leads, but her breach of protocol brings tensions to a boiling point with Commander John Francis, who refuses to relinquish any control of the rapidly escalating investigation. The team catch a break when one of the terrorists is spotted by an off-duty policeman, and they scramble to follow him to the gang hideout. Back at Counter-Terror HQ, Francis gives Lana a dressing-down for her continuing unauthorised contact with Alex; emotions run high and eventually Lana walks furiously out of the room - and her job. But she’s not inactive for long – soon Alex makes contact once again, desperate for her help with another device that the gang have asked him to plant. Alone, without her kit or any support, Lana must defuse the bomb.
