Hanna season 3, episode 2 Recap
Whilst on the train, Benson asks Hanna how she lost audio, which she claims happened after Abbas tried to kiss her. In a location close to Paris, Marissa vomits after she receives a photo of the possible Chairman. A short flashback shows, possibly, the same man, Gordon Evans (Ray Liotta), being aggressive to Marissa as he attempts to find her. Later, Hanna tracks Abbas down, where he asks who she is working for. Her response? “I am trying to destroy an organisation that wants you dead”. (Nothing like being dramatic). He must have had no trouble believing her as the following morning he wakes up to find Hanna eating his breakfast. Before she leaves, Hanna asks who the girl was that he was on the phone with. Assuming they spent the night together, are they now a “thing”? Does he have a girlfriend?
After declaring the Paris mission a success, Brianna gets warned by Gordon to watch Carmichael like a hawk; apparently, he has taken it far too easily in terms of Brianna taking over. Moreover, Mission 2 is now active, and Katerina Svobodova (Anna Kameníková) is the target. In Prague, Hanna tells Katerina that a woman is going to kill her. To prove her claim, Marissa and Katerina watch as Hanna drives the car, which malfunctions just before Hanna is able to jump off. It’s all quite James Bond actually. With reports that a “Campaigner Dies In Tragic Accident”, it a successful mission for Brianna.
Meanwhile, Marissa goes through the files of Gordon Evans. She reads that he may have involvement in a top-secret Romanian strategic operation in 2001. She rings her sister Tracy and asks when she last spoke to their Dad. Whilst Tracy says she hasn’t spoken to their Dad for years, she reveals their Dad claimed he saw Marissa all the time. Is The Chairman her father?! What does that mean for Marissa?
Brianna activates Mission 3 just as Teri Miller (Cherrelle Skeete) tells Carmichael that she knows what is happening and she’s there to help. Questioning Teri’s motives, Carmichael texts Marissa about the help. She tells him to deny and isolate the offered help. After Hanna has sex with Abbas, she uses his fingerprint to search his phone. She learns his last call was to someone called Nadiya. After Hanna leaves Abbas alone, she comes to realise that people are following her. She rushes back just in time to save Abbas from being murdered by Benson by shooting Benson to death. Hanna tells Marissa, “code red”.
Carmichael is exposed, and although he destroys his laptop, he still gets captured. Meanwhile, Ethan spots Max, unaware that Sandy spies on him eating lunch. With Carmichael in custody, Brianna videocalls Gordon, who tells her to get the truth out of Carmichael, track the IP address and find Marissa, who he wants alive. Teri asks where Carmichael is but gets told that he is sick and that she no longer reports to him.
Hanna messages her “Dad”, but as Teri is the one to respond she warns Hanna that they know about her. Hanna flees from the train and alerts Marissa. Whilst she and Abbas flee in a stolen taxi, they’re shot at. Abbas dives onto a small truck to flee, whilst Hanna and Marissa kill the men after them.
