Raza continues to think on his feet to stay close to Dadir. Gabe tells him to act like a pilot fish and stay underneath the shark. Raza's perseverance pays off as he gets information on an Albania crime gangster. Raza wants citizenship for his mother to be sorted out for the information he is obtaining. However the pressure of this double life is getting to him.

Raza's dad is suspicious when he comes across as a spy camera. He knows that his son is a snitch.

Raza's younger brother Nasir gets friendly with someone else Gabe has been dealing with. A radicalised youth ordered to stay away from the internet.

The more interesting angle is regarding Gabe himself. He inadvertently meets a face from the past, when Gabe had infiltrated right wing gangs. I am certainly sure Holly has been placed to investigate Gabe as she probes his past activities.

Raza looks like someone who has taken to undercover work like duck to water. It was interesting that when his father confronted him, he had the balls to call his dad out for his drinking.
