The Diplomat Season 1 Ending Explained
Foreign Secretary Dennison informs Kate that Prime Minister Trowbridge has agreed to the plan to arrest Roman Lenkov, but he wants British Special Forces to be involved for a photo opportunity.
Dennison and Secretary of State Ganon will go to France to negotiate with the French, who will not be happy about the British taking over the arrest.
However, Ganon believes it will sound better coming from Kate, so she is tasked with the responsibility of traveling with Anu, Dennison’s assistant, to France. Dennison expresses discomfort with the idea and suggests he should make the trip himself – with Kate.
Meanwhile, Eidra tells Billie that Lewis Quainton, the man Hal went out for a drink with in Episode 7, is working for the Saudis, and the CIA wants to use him as an asset in the matter. However, Billie rejects the idea due to Kate’s status as a potential Vice Presidential candidate.
