'Bulletproof' Season 2 is almost at its halfway point and things are not looking good for anyone involved. After helping Alex Markides (Stavros Zalmas) escape in Episode 3, Aaron Bishop (Noel Clarke) and Ronnie Pike (Ashley Walters) are going to be in hot water and that's just the beginning of their troubles.

The Amsterdam incident is bound to infuriate Bishop and Pike's superiors, especially Deputy Director Richard Cockridge (Lee Ross). But the incident has also driven a wedge between Alex and his sister, Eleanor Markides (Gina Bellman). and we could be looking at the makings of a civil war between the two.

It looks like it's going to be Alex vs Eleanor with Eleanor's son Mikey Markides (Ben Tavassoli) set to complicate matters with his craziness. Mikey's a total wildcard and chances are that if he goes down, he'll take Bishop and Pike down with him.

Mikey's ambitions continue to grow unchecked in Episode 4 as he aims to expand the family's criminal empire. And his latest scheme puts the boys right in the line of fire.

Based on the synopsis for the upcoming episode, it looks like Mikey is planning on moving into gun-running on top of his lucrative drug smuggling and human trafficking interests. What's worse, he's putting Bishop and Pike in charge of helping him achieve his goals and that's gonna leave the boys feeling a bit conflicted.

On the one hand, they can't afford to let Mikey down or their covers could be blown and that would put both them and Pike's family in danger. On the other hand, if they do go through with this, they would be allowing a deranged criminal like Mikey to get access to extremely dangerous weapons and there's no telling what he might do with them.

It's a difficult choice and whatever they choose to do, the boys are going to face some blowback. We'll just have to wait and see how they work their way out of this one.

Here's the official synopsis for the upcoming episode: "Bishop and Pike ramp up their investigation as Mikey tasks them with overseeing the hostile takeover of a gun factory outside of London; Alex regains control of the family after the fallout from Amsterdam."

'Bulletproof' Season 2 airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm ET on The CW.
