I watched the whole series when it was originally being posted here and, given the way it ends, there is no way in hell I'm watching it again.
It's a brilliant show but it pulls no punches at all and builds to a harrowing climax.

We're back? Okay, it will be a couple days until I can get to this.

Such a brilliant episode and no one was killed for once. I could not remember who replaced C so I was in suspense through the whole thing. Who knew that Malta and Libya had such a closer relationship? Finding a replacement for Diane ("No one wants to work for you"), Burnside trying to coach Peele in the taxi ride to lunch with Wellingham ("I like Malta. Margaret and I had our honeymoon there...Never been to Libya. Don't suppose I've missed much.") but Wellingham is a few steps ahead of Burnside. Neil is bloody but unbowed at the end.

I loved seeing Wellingham outmaneuver Burnside, and Burnside humbled.

This was a great episode with plenty of eye-rolling from Burnside, extremely rude barbs thrown, and a few good laughs. Enjoyed the twist at the end. I am sad Diane is leaving.
