Liaison Episode 1 Ending: What is the Connection Between Alison and Gabriel?
Richard struggles to regain control after two cyberattacks, and Samir and Walid are revealed. The hackers’ rapid arrival from Syria coincides with the cyber attacks, raising suspicions.
That someone else wants them interests them. CCTV captures the pursuing man. Alison is surprised to see him, even though no one else does.
Gabriel arrived in London to bring Samir and Walid to France, where they were supposed to be. He must also retrieve a flash disc, their sole leverage.
If a terrorist group or enemy nation gets the flash drive, it will be disastrous. Gabriel sees Walid, who runs away thinking he and his brother were set up again. Gabriel gets the hard drive but knocks Walid out.
The British government notices this savage attack, and Richard becomes inquisitive about Samir and Walid and this mystery name, which turns out to be Jean Petit, a French EU mission member with diplomatic immunity.
Richard finds Jean, removes his diplomatic immunity, and arrests him to learn about the hackers and cyber attacks. Richard enlists Alison’s husband, Albert, a human rights lawyer, but she doesn’t want him involved.
