Trigger Point’s Lana Washington in Danger at the End of Episode 2
The first episode of the ITV thriller Trigger Point ambushed viewers with the death of a major character and the second left them spellbound again with another massive cliffhanger.
Vicky McClure (Line of Duty) leads the cast of the new drama series as explosives officer Lana Washington, who is on the Met’s front line of defense against a mysterious terror cell targeting London.
After a devastating opening, things didn’t stop for Lana in this final chapter, which was tested with the neutralization of a trap in a bomb factory, before being faced with another unpleasant surprise in the final scene. .
Be warned: full of spoilers details follow for Episode 2 of Trigger Point.
The last device Lana is called upon to disarm is discovered abandoned in a London mosque, which is quickly evacuated as she and her team are deployed to assess the threat.
Lana enters alone and finds the explosive in question, which is a nail bomb left hanging from a doorknob in a regular plastic bag.
Due to the highly sensitive mercury detonator attached, she must be extremely careful when handling the device, but things get more complicated when she realizes she is not alone.
In the room on the other side of the door is a hostage who has been tied up and chained to the wall, meaning his chances of survival are slim unless Lana finds a way to disable the device.
Unfortunately, the options are very limited, as the bomb timer ominously informs him that there are only two and a half minutes left before detonation.
From the entrance to the mosque, she can hear her fellow DI lover and Thom Youngblood (Mark Stanley) ordering her to evacuate, but Lana apparently has no intention of leaving anyone behind.
No doubt some viewers groaned when they realized they would have to wait a week to find out what happens next, especially since the series premiere proved that no one is safe in the world of Trigger Point, but we’ll just have to connect. again to find out.
