Spy City Episode 1 Recap
The series premiere, titled ‘Operation Beethoven,’ begins in 1960 Berlin where Fielding Scott has to hand a yellow envelope to a certain man. As easy as the task may seem, the matter soon spins on its head when the man Scott meets shoots a waiter who sees them together and later turns to Scott with his gun. When things get ugly, Scott kills the man to defend himself. Soon he learns that the person he has killed was Simon Haldane, another spy for the British government.
Scott also realizes that Haldane’s position in the whole network was not very different from his own as he was also planted in Berlin in the guise of a British diplomat. Since Haldane may have also been in the city for a specific mission, naturally, Scott begins to suspect that something is off – why should the British spy want to kill Scott? The episode then skips ahead to a year and a half, and we meet Scott again in Spring 1961. We learn that since the incident in Berlin, he was fired from MI6 but managed to sidestep a criminal trial for killing Haldane.
However, Scott is given a second chance. He is rehired on the condition that he would have a clean slate if he manages to pull off his next assignment successfully. The mission is to bring Manfred Ziegler and his technology safely back to the UK. It turns out that Ziegler is Scott’s childhood friend who built a missile tracking system. The scientist worked for Russia and now wants to work for the UK, but only if Scott is also in the picture. Scott takes on the task and heads to Berlin. But he finds it challenging to navigate through the system since he cannot trust anyone.
As if this isn’t enough, it turns out that Scott’s direct supervisor used to be a close friend of the man he killed the previous year. Additionally, a German agent called August Froben is also spying on Scott. The British spy comes across several other agents who are known to him and could pose a threat to his mission. However, what bothers him the most is why did Simon Haldane make an attempt on his life. Scott knows that something does not add up about the whole situation, and he is determined to get to the bottom of it.
