The Protectors Season 1 Episode 9: Thinkback

Thinkback Title Shot

The last thing anyone knows is there was a car crash and then a hospital bed. Harry wakes up wrapped in plaster and strapped to a hospital bed in a daze. He knows he was in the car with Contessa but the doctor and nurse state that he wasn’t. Harry notices a few things that point to something being wrong with this picture. He is being badgered by the police to tell them what he was doing when the crash occurred and where The protectors client was. The Contessa has found herself in the same mess but in another room and again being badgered by the police to find out where her client was. An escape must be made to save their client after the Contessa tells the “police” where her client was.

Personal Synopsis

A great episode to watch. I love this story considering the lengths the crooks go to tricking The Protectors into giving out important information. I have seen this story previous in an episode of the show Department S and still love the premise.
