Article: “THE HONORABLE WOMAN” Recap: Episode 8 (The Paring Knife)

Sir Hugh shares his theories with Dame Julia, suggesting that Samir Meshal was a go-between for the US and the Palestinians. Hugh proposes that when Meshal called a Palestinian contact to confirm the Secretary of State’s agreement to an unknown plan, he inadvertently alerted the Israelis to the plan’s existence via the wiretap on Shlomo’s cables. Since the CIA was piggybacking on the Israeli tap, Hugh theorizes, they were able to take out Meshal before the Israelis could abduct and interrogate him. Dame Julia suggests that the Secretary of State might have been agreeing to Nessa’s assassination, but Hugh expresses doubt, guessing that Monica Chatwin independently arranged the attack on Nessa to curry favor with the CIA, ultimately gunning for Julia’s job.
