Episode 2

Written by Jack Lothian; directed by MJ Bassett.

In Ajir, Libya, Section 20 endures a gauntlet of gunfire and an urban ambush to extract Morgan Ives, the American arms dealer who was double-crossed by Idrisi. Driving through hostile terrain, the team is forced to seek medical treatment at a Libyan nationalist compound presided over by General Farid, who has bad memories of both Mac and Wyatt. Eventually engaging Idrisi and his henchmen in a remote bunker, S20 finds its conventional firefight trumped by an imminent air strike ordered by Wyatt’s C.O., Colonel Parker.
