In the low key calm before the storm tenth episode of The Fourth Arm it’s time for the final debriefing. Gallagher makes it plain that he can’t force any of the team to take part in the mission and if anyone does want to pull out now is the time to say so.
Each member of the team will have their own specific task during the mission but Hibou throws the whole operation into jeopardy when he says he wants to pull out. It’s too late for anyone else to take his place – Gallagher arranges for his old professor to come and see him and make him see that he needs to make the right decision for the good of the country. Nothing will sway him though until a casual conversation with Choucas makes him change his mind. Much to the relief of Gallagher.
Ferdy and Chardonneret are the first to leave, followed by Gallagher and the rest of the team.
With just two episodes to go the mission is finally about to take place.
“Now it’s upto Professor Edwards, lets hope the Welsh wizard brings his wand.”
