Treason is the crime of attacking a state authority to which one owes allegiance.
This typically includes acts such as participating in a war against one’s native country, attempting to overthrow its government, spying on its military, diplomats, or secret services for a hostile and foreign power, or attempting to assassinate its head of state. A traitor is a person who commits treason.
Treason Ending Explained
The fifth and final episode of the series introduces a significant twist. When Adam used one of many confidential files he had on him to blackmail important political figures in the game after their election, Audrey Alex Kingston’s hopes of becoming the new PM appeared to have been dashed. Adam had exposed sensitive information about her.
Adam sees this as an opportunity to finally clear his name after being falsely accused of playing both sides, only to have Angelis remove him from the board.
He convinces his wife, Maddy, to contact Audrey and expose Angelis’ true colors, while promising her that they will retrieve the hard drive containing all of the files in exchange for their family’s immunity. Maddy eventually convinces her after some effort, while Adam and Kara continue their mission to find Olamide and obtain the files.
As the two team up to ambush Angelis’ operation, he also recruits Dede from the CIA while selling Adam’s false image. Kara kills Olamide during the ambush, and Maddy arrives to assist them in the meantime.
She takes the drive from another employee, but Dede has the upper hand as she corners Adam. She offers Maddy the chance to trade the files for Adam’s life, but the crossfire ends on a bloody note when Dede shoots him. Kara restrains herself from running to her husband as he takes his last breath.
Furthermore, while searching for the driver, Kara learns that MI6 suspects Adam of being a double agent named Dorian, who was also responsible for killing all of Kara’s men during their mission in Baku.
She, on the other hand, knows Adam isn’t the man she’s looking for because he was with her when Dorian attacked all of her people; she later explains this to Maddy as well. Angelis exacerbates the situation by telling the rest of the MI6 team that Kara killed Adam instead of Dede.
While Maddy is still reeling from her husband’s death, she calls Audrey to inform her that the files have been secured and to inform her of Adam’s death.
Audrey, on the other hand, makes her blood boil by insisting on returning the files to Angelis, despite the fact that they’ve already caused them a lot of trouble.
The Episode Review
Treason was going so well before episode 5. But the ending ruined everything that had gone before it. Patrick’s transformation into Dorian was tedious.
There was no explanation for how it happened or why he was motivated to do so. There are no flashbacks to show how he actually betrayed the country.
Even though they killed Ada, which was a bold move, they did not provide enough closure for his family’s grief. In the end, it all felt very unemotional.
Malik felt completely wasted, and he was just one of the writers’ unintentional red herrings in the end. Everything felt a little too conveniently placed, and the fears expressed after the first half of episode 4 were realized: treason is mediocre at best.
