Vigil Episode 4 Recap
Previously on Vigil, Amy woke up to what seems like a submarine planning to launch a nuclear missile. She bumps her head and looks forward to stopping it until she realizes it was all a drill. Longacre on the other side has found herself in trouble after meeting Patrick Cruden. The interrogation from MI5 agents soon turns into a conversation when Longacre also confronts them until Roberston comes interrupting.
As Amy goes through her past memories with Longacre, Glover enters to comfort her after what went down. But tables turn when Amy starts going personal and accuses Glover of blackmailing Docherty for figuring out the killer of Sonar Man. This sees Glover go furious and telling Amy how everyone onboard believes she is crazy. Meanwhile, Longacre and Porter work on a person Jade thought of as an MI5 agent during a protest. The CCTV footage sees the man meeting the second person of whom Jade takes a photo.
Longacre takes her squad to investigate this man whose name is revealed to be Peter Ingels. After a chase, they take him in. There are a number of reasons to blame Ingles but MI5 agents interrupt the investigation stating Peter is a Russian agent. Longacre deals with the loss of a major lead while Porter believes investigating the man who has been responding to Peter’s tweets could work as a new lead. Especially with the fact that posts stopped on the day, HMS Vigil began patrolling. But still, revealing the investigation doesn’t do much for the duo at least for now.
Back to Vigil, Amy Silva is asked to take tests at Sickbay as Docherty believes her medicines could be wearing off. To counter, Amy reveals everything about Glover’s affair and at Port Havers incident right in front of Captain Newsome. Walsh on the submarine discovers that the locks of the submarine’s mainframes have damage. He lets Hadlow know the situation and how someone may have entered to force the reactor to shut down.
A conversation with the Americans strike in. The first priority at the moment is to figure out the identity of the Russian spy aboard. Amy teams up with Prentice. Longacre on her side believes bring the submarine back home is the best solution. The episode closes with the HMS Vigil’s communications jammed and Hamilton dead with Glover around her as Amy looks on.
