This article contains predictions for the Apple TV+ series Slow Horses season 1, episode 5.

Firstly Jackson Lamb was swayed into participating in the terrorist plot, now he’s taking the blame for it all and has the rest of his Slough House gang tarnished with the same serious allegations too. The wise-cracking, potty-mouthed oaf has a real job on his hands to right this wrong, but he’s on the case. Lamb orders a rounding up of the team before they can disappear, although MI5 are hot on their tails. Here’s what happened in episode four of Slow Horses:

  • The terrorists flee the scene of the crime with their hostage in the boot. It is revealed that the mole, Alan Black, was beheaded. Curly, the killer, was in contact with their boss, who gave the order. The panicked nationalists contemplate their next move, all the while the hostage eavesdrops on their conversation.
  • Jackson tells River, Min, and Louisa to go and fetch Struan and Roddy, whilst he goes to find Catherine before Diana’s cronies get to her. The three Slow Horses drive to Struan’s first, but he’s already been intercepted.
  • Struan is interrogated by Diana. He has been lying to his family about Slough House and is desperate to work back at Regent Park. She dangles the prospects of reinstatement if he will testify that Lamb was working with Alan Black. She wants to frame the Slow Horses for the kidnapping.
  • The terrorists decide to ditch the hostage in a forest and drive to a boat, planning to flee the country.
  • River steals a car and picks up Roddy. Before they go into hiding he wants to visit Sid at the hospital. He is caught on CCTV and quickly chased through the hospital. Roddy drives off, leaving River to fend for himself. The agent escapes after a tense chase.
  • Lamb visits Catherine Standish. She’s been messaged by Diana but goes willingly with Lamb. They are caught by Diana’s cronies: Nick Duffy and Webb. They are then driven back to Diana’s headquarters, but Catherine draws a weapon on them and Lamb kicks them out.
