Much like the previous episode, this is exciting from start to finish.
This recap of Netflix’s In From the Cold season 1, episode 7, “Gideon,” contains spoilers.
In From the Cold season 1, episode 7 recap
After Chris slips up, Jenny realises that he and Chauncey must have a tracking device on her. She flushes her phone and uses a defibrillator on herself. All quite dramatic! A flashback shows that after Faina walks in on Jenny/Anya just after she killed her father, Jenny/Anya tries to claim Dr Orlav has attacked her. But Faina is too distraught, and with no other choice, Jenny/Anya sobs as she kills Faina.
Jenny fumes as she removes the optical cameras from her eyes. After Felipe reassures Andres by phone that the Prime Minister will be dead by the end of the day, Jenny appears and shoots Andres in both of his knees. She then drags him out to the bulls. She asks where Gideon took her daughter, but when he refuses to tell her anything, Jenny allows the bull to gore him to death.
Ohana finds Chauncey and Chris’s hotel room, which is in ruins thanks to Jenny, and she arrests them. Revealing her true identity to Ines, Jenny tells her that Ramon was murdered by Felipe. She asks for her help in saving Becca’s life. A flashback shows that when Jenny/Anya asks Svetlana to extract her, as guards began to surround her, Svetlana refused. Instead, Svetlana says, “Initiate Omega Protocol”.
Felipe tells Diego that Diego is the savior of Spain and their last hope as he tries to brainwash his nephew into doing what he wants. Meanwhile, Ohana offers Chauncey and Chris a deal. Chris is quick to give in, and he makes a deal to save himself. After Diego poses as a police officer to be closer to the Prime Minister, Jenny arrives at Felipe’s mansion, kills his guards, and lays Andres head in his direction. She reveals who she really is, having been hiding in the wall, and demands to know where Becca is. Felipe says that he knows nothing about her daughter, but does reveal that Svetlana owns the ice rink. Despite his pleas, Jenny lets Felipe fall to his death.
As Chris’s cooperation with the CIA means that he is about to be released, he “attacks” Chauncey before he gets escorted out. It doesn’t take long for Chauncey to realize that Chris has snuck handcuff keys into his back pocket. A flashback shows that Svetlana forced Jenny/Anya into injecting herself to avoid dying. Once injected, this is what gave Jenny all the powers that she has in the present timeline. As Diego is about to shoot the Prime Minister, Chauncey manages to convince Diego not to go through with it and therefore saves the day (for now).
At the ice rink, Jenny finds Gaia, and they fight to the death (aka the dreaded skate-off). It soon appears as though Jenny has been killed and Gaia calls Svetlana. Svetlana reveals herself and hugs Gaia before she shoots her in the stomach. Gaia is actually Jenny, and Svetlana kneels over Jenny and says “Did you think I wouldn’t recognize you”.
