Show Snob recaps and explains the finale of Netflix’s The Spy, starring Sacha Baron Cohen. A very well-made series concludes.

At the start of the finale episode of The Spy, we are whisked from Suidani and troops attempting to capture Operative 88. Nadia is at the Syrian embassy in France; she confronts an official over Eli’s arrest.

While Mossad, Israel’s intelligence agency, debate whether or not to strike the Syrian’s stockade and plan of their own. Then we flashback to 5 months previous, as Eli returns home to see his wife and children.

Simultaneously, Dan attempts to derail the idea to send missiles; it is argued that allowing Operative 88 to become Syrian defense minister is preferable. The latter’s brother suspects 88 is The Spy and is worried for him – the extended family are unaware of 88’s mission.
