Harry Rule is abducted and forced to meet with a known arms and drug dealer Bela Karoleon. He appeals to Harry to bust his brother out of prison because of his failing health. Harry and the team get onto the job. Caroline is held up during her escape from the scene which puts her in close proximity to danger but the escape is still successful. All is not well and the tables have been turned. The team have to find a way to pay Bela back but it may not be as easy as the escape from the prison.
A story of a dysfunctional crime family that need to protect the family business and the length they would take to keep the truth away from the police. This episode was a good watch but with the exception of the horrible fight scene at the end. Vladek Sheybal is always good to watch and in this episode he plays the brother of the crime lord, Sandor. You can see the development of the friendships between the Protectors team and it is good to see.
