Alex Rider - Heist

After travelling to Amsterdam, Alex (Otto Farrant), Kyra (Marli Siu), and Tom (Brenock O’Connor) work on a plan to how to sneak Alex and Kyra into Damian Cray's (Toby Stephens) company to download the full code of The Feathered Serpent video game in hopes of learning what it is for. The episode works well with the pair smuggling themselves into the company through a delivery truck and then working their way to the upper offices. They also come across a shipment of gas masks and hazmat suits foreshadowing the evil that Cray has planned. 

In the other storyline, Gregorvich (Thomas Levin) arranges for a patsy to keep the authorities of suspecting that there is any truth to Alex's charges against Cray. Making use of a member of Cray's own security staff, framing him as a longtime member of Scorpio, works exactly as expected meaning Alex is left on his own without backup once again at the episode ends in a cliffhanger with the fate of Alex and Kyra in serious jeopardy.
