What I’m Watching: Tehran

Tehran: Season 2, Episode 5 “Double Fault” (B+)

Faraz may be one of the villains on this show, but it’s also fair that he might see how people are out to get him. He previously saw his wife in danger when he was getting too close to the truth, and now Marjan has taken the risky step of calling to outright tell him that he needs to back off while he’s looking straight at Tamar. It’s a wonder that Milad’s still alive at this point given the Mossad plan to have him taken care of by Amir, who was able to pose as a janitor and get close enough to take him out only to have to move aside so that he could be released. Tamar’s decision to enter a police station was a questionable one, especially since she was on a wanted poster. But Vahid was perfectly happy to play the hero and show up to get Milad released, and I’m not sure exactly what his plan was since Tamar found out very quickly that he was the one who got Milad arrested in the first place. For all of the obstacles they’ve had to endure, Tamar did manage to get close to Peyman and to get him to trust her, and as long as Faraz listens to Marjan’s warning and chooses to leave rather than stick around and come face-to-face with Tamar, they may well be able to move ahead to the next phase of the plan, with ever-increasing numbers of people who know what’s going on.
