Summary Edit

Juliet dismisses Harry after he stops the CIA from extraditing a British citizen, who turns out to be a terrorist, and is believed to have killed two MI5 officers. While Harry is under surveillance, the rest of the team work to stop the terrorist, where it is revealed that Nick Pollard, an American with counter surveillance skills may actually be involved.

In fact, he arranges for the released terrorist to take part in an attack, which is revealed to be a surface-to-air missile against a flight heading for Heathrow, in order to push the UK and US into going to war against Iran. The attack is stopped and Pollard is arrested. Harry is reinstated.
