We anticipated Citadel’s remaining episodes to be average but visually stunning after watching the first one. The third episode of the series has met our expectations, so far. In India, Priyanka Chopra is affectionately referred to as Mimi Didi, which is Hindi for “older sister.” That the series made her character cringe breaks our hearts. She is one of the rare actors in the business who is also a superb performer. Simply put, the designers of Citadel are unsure on how to use her. We would firstly want to hear her talk a little louder in the upcoming episodes. The torture sequences in this particular episode’s narrative made us uneasy, despite the fact that they occurred off-screen, and the rest of it was unimpressive—with the exception of the ending twist, which we had a sneaking suspicion would occur. Here is a comprehensive summary of Citadel episode 3.
What Is Nadia And Mason s Next Plan?
Nadia and Mason arrive to a Citadel safehouse to gather their temporary bearings. When Mason asks Nadia if they’ve ever been together while she’s tending to his injuries, she replies that it was only a fleeting relationship. Nadia was the one to save him ten years ago when he had broken into a facility to steal a deadly virus so that it did not wipe out the world. The only useful information we get in the extremely embarrassing chat that occurs after the mission is that Nadia had been training for the last five years and that her mother also worked at the Citadel. After this talk, they started dating in Paris two weeks later. We will only address them by that name.
When Nadia messages someone in the present to inquire about the status of the shipment, she is informed that it is waiting for her. Nadia, who is quite anxious, alerts the other party that Valencia might be in danger. Mason wishes to accompany Nadia on her search, but Nadia tells him to return to his family as soon as possible. When he makes a comment about a sea of red, Nadia begins to second-guess her obstinate denial. Mason took a case with him that included messages from other operatives, particularly Carter Spence. One was a fairly recent communication warning him that Manticore was pursuing him and that he needed assistance. Nadia recognizes the location as Fez, Morocco, and assumes that Balduino, the local crime lord, is collaborating with Manticore to torture Carter.
Mason must assist Nadia in her efforts to save Carter because he had a good relationship with Balduino while Nadia killed his sibling. Mason finally decides to assume his former self after realizing that he can go with Nadia. It has some measure of success. In order to hack Balduino’s phone and find the access codes she needs to free Carter, Nadia requires Mason to hold a lighter holding a transmitter close to the device. Nadia completes the task while Mason diverts Balduino with trash expeditions and small talk. However, he is taken aback when Balduino mentions that there is a rumor going around that Nadia was the one to sell out Citadel and that she and Mason were deeply involved. Mason is able to leave the area, and while he is leaving with Nadia, he inquires with her about what he overheard. He is reassured by Nadia that if she were a double agent, she wouldn’t be acting in the way that she is. Kyle, the man standing in front of her, has no recollections of his past and, as a result, neither a right nor a need to know about Nadia’s relationship with Mason. Although it is not a very good explanation, it will do for the time being.
How Is Abby Conroy Related To Citadel?
The Silje brothers misplaced Mason Kane and the X-case in Citadel Episode 2. Bernard Orlick, who created the AI system that contained the locations of all nuclear weapons in the globe, was the next best thing they could have had. Dahlia just requests that he provide them with the 19-character password to access it. Bernard, though, is tough enough to face up to her relentless torture and keeps everything a secret. This goes against Dahlia’s expectations because she frequently implies that Bernard was the one who rebelled years ago and brought about Citadel’s demise. Additionally, we learn about two specific things. One is that, many years ago, Bernard and Dahlia collaborated on projects at the UN. The second is Dahlia’s conviction that Citadel are not the wonderful men they are portraying themselves to be. She has horrific burn marks on her palm as a result, and subsequent episodes will explain what those marks signify.
She then revealed that a year prior, she had tortured Carter Spence in order to obtain information. Should we assume that he escaped and that is how he ended up in Morocco if she had him that long ago? We won’t know until Nadia and Mason come to his aid. Bernard won’t give them any information right now, so Dahlia tells Anders Silje to take something from his brain so they may examine it and find the information they need. In the last moments of Citadel Episode 3, Anders declares that Brielle is still alive as he prepares to pierce Bernard’s skull. Anders used to adore Brielle, but something had happened to her, and Citadel had told him she had passed away. Brielle has apparently changed her name to Abby, Mason’s wife—Kyle.
At the hospital, where she was receiving care for a traumatic brain injury that she did not recall receiving, Abby met Kyle. Since Citadel appears to possess scientific manipulation abilities, it wouldn’t surprise us if the group falsified her existence by changing her memories for unintended purposes. It’s possible that it was intended to be a temporary situation, but the destruction of Citadel extended that existence for her. Even the time frames are too close together. Mason visited the hospital eight years ago, and Abby was admitted nine years ago. We can only wait to see how this discovery develops further as it appears that Abby is most likely a Citadel agent.
So far, Priyanka Chopra’s appearance is the only noteworthy aspect of Citadel. Perhaps this is what makes it so sad that an actor is giving everything they have to a role that is simply not written well. We shall wait for the time being because the series has only seen three episodes so far. If we were to pick out one more positive, we would say that Bernard’s cheeky smirk when he realized that he had Anders exactly where he wanted him, with the knowledge of Abby, was sweet. Overall, the show seemed a little slow and may have had one episode that was unnecessary. Even this viewpoint requires some time to develop. In essence, the verdict is still out, so we will just have to wait. We genuinely hope that our concerns will be answered quickly.
