Check out the archive for reviews, news, and recaps for Slow Horses. 

Racist nationalists have kidnapped an Asian student and are holding him hostage in their cellar. Disgraced agent River believes there is a link between these criminals and fascist journalist Hobden. He breaks away from his mind-numbing duties to investigate the case, hoping to pinpoint the hostage’s location before it’s too late. “Work Drinks” really piles on the pressure in another daring chapter. Here’s what happened in episode two of Slow Horses:

  • The Sons Of Albion have kidnapped a student, broadcasting footage of this to the world. At midnight they are going to behead the poor boy on live TV.
  • MI5 are hot on the case, led by Diana Taverner, although River believes they should be following Hobden instead. He asks Webb what is on the memory stick, but like River spotted earlier, it’s just the number Pi, a decoy.
  • River then asks Roddy, the computer nerd, to hack into Hobden’s emails. The journalist has no online presence at all and Roddy believes he will burn his hard drive if caught. The hacker explains how he would achieve this and the ingredients needed. River hunts back through Hobden’s bin and finds proof that he is concocting some device to burn the incriminating files if needs be.
  • Diana asks Jed Moody about an unofficial operation Jackson may be running. Moody has a bug in Lamb’s office to get dirt on his boss and overheard the plans.
  • The hostage tries to escape.
  • River follows Hobden through London and watches the journalist from outside his house. The stakeout is interrupted by Sid, who was stalking River the whole time. They talk about the case and Sid reveals that she has been sent to Slough House by Diana to spy on River.
  • Before River can ask further questions, a masked man enters Hobden’s house via the back garden. They run after him. Hobden is held at gunpoint by the masked man and his hard drive catches fire. River tussles with him for the gun. Hobden flees and the masked man escapes out the front door. Sid tries to stop him but is shot.
