Episode 1 May 5, 2010 (Series Premiere) British Section 20 agents Michael Stonebridge and Kate Marshall are instructed by their boss, Colonel Eleanor Grant, to head to New Delhi, where a terrorist leader named Latif is rumored to be planning a major attack. Before joining Grant and Kate in India, Stonebridge detours to Malaysia, to recruit Damien Scott, a former Delta Force operative who was dishonorably discharged on the eve of the Iraq invasion. Agreeing to help hunt down Latif (for a fee), Scott decodes a secret message on a videotape, then joins Stonebridge in New Delhi, where the two check in to the Royal Lotus Hotel--just as a group of 16 terrorists are setting up a siege. The group's aim: to kidnap a mysterious hotel guest. As Grant and a Pakistani counterpart, Major Ashkani, set up surveillance, Scott and Stonebridge manage to slip through the grasp of the terrorists, imbedding themselves in the hotel with hopes of ending the siege, finding Mahmood, and bringing the elusive Latif to justice.

As Stonebridge tends to Scott's wound in a suite, the American reveals that he was framed for drug possession as a Delta Force member--no doubt because he had learned about a covert shipment of WMDs that were lifted from Iraq.
