The Adventurer Season 1 Episode 9: Deadlock

Gene Bradley is in Istanbul with a briefcase filled with 1 million dollars. A stolen microfile is on offer for purchase and Gene wants back what was stolen but there are others that want the microfile even more.  A Johnny Morrison is calling the shots but also warns Gene of his other enemies such as Sakuma. Complications arise when Mr. Morrison is found dead and Sakuma is standing over his body.  Kolmar is taken by Sakuma, the keys necessary for access to the microfile are split between two people and Gene still has the million dollars. Somehow a deal must be made but at what cost.

Personal Synopsis

Thin glimpses into the past of Gene Bradley as an old friend Franz Kolmar is in need of help. Gene comes to help Kolmar retrieve a microfile from a dodgy colleague. This episode shows Gene’s friendship, with the man who helped him make millions, was more important than money. This episode shows a less cocky and a more concerned Gene Bradley, a character that is better in this form than the other.
