The Protectors Season 1 Episode 5: Ceremony for the Dead

Ceremony For The Dead Title Shot

Harry calls in the help of the Contessa from far away because of a possible kidnapping of the President. Harry and the team fake the kidnapping to bring out the real extremist into the forefront. But the kidnappers are smart enough to not fall for such a trick. However there may be an even bigger trick that has been played out, with the presidents life at stake.

Personal Synopsis

An episode of a power grab after the death of the leader. This must happen quite a lot but in this case its the presidents wife, a nice twist. The exotic location was enough to keep me interested but the story was relatively simple.  All in all this episode was not one of the strongest.
