Burnside takes a working holiday to Rhodes with Peele and Wellingham. Willie Caine fills in as D-Ops, and fields a request - and some snark - from the CIA.

So, equal amounts lighthearted (Your desk is on fire) and doubling dealing. Ross is going to need more than a case of Coke to get back in Burnside's good graces this time.

Wallace acquits himself very well in his first major solo undertaking (I guess, Willie seemed to indicate it was.) Willie's turn as acting head, he came up with a good plan but I think he's more comfortable in the field rather than sending a colleague into danger.

Always fun to see Wellingham helpless under the onslaught of Peele's bonhomie.

Also, having read the synopsis linked above, Burnside wasn't encouraging the woman in hopes of bringing a KGB agent to the new C because he admitted to her at dinner that he was just stringing her along. I guess he's never been in a honeypot situation before and he was amusing himself? More likely, it was his revenge for DInt in the last episode.

I faintly remember having one of those airplane bags when I was little, from TWA, but it might be wishful thinking.
