Spoilers for 'Bulletproof' Season 2 Episode 5

As 'Bulletproof' Season 2 inches closer to its end, Episode 5 delivers another exciting international story with great sights and greater betrayals. It's a pretty tense episode and even though the action scenes may be more subdued than usual, the revelations made in the story are massive.

While in Cyprus with Alex Markides (Stavros Zalmas), Aaron Bishop (Noel Clarke) and Ronnie Pike (Ashley Walters) discover that the new chief of police Stefan (Yorgos Karamihos) is against the Markides family's drug trade. Stefan pushes Alex to make a deal banning drugs from the country but things are complicated by the arrival of Mikey Markides (Ben Tavassoli).

There are a lot of scenes showcasing the beautiful vistas of Cyprus, a country that's depicted in the show almost as paradise. And Alex reveals that he wants Bishop to share that paradise with him, which doesn't really sit well with Bishop.

In any case, the boys manage to ally themselves with Stefan and search for a lead but unfortunately, they run into a dead-end (literally) when the lead kills himself rather than give up the Markides family. This puts the boys in a difficult position as they no longer have the evidence they needed and Eleanor Markides (Gina Bellman) is closing in on them back in England.

Sarah Tanner (Lindsey Coulson) tries to stop Eleanor from digging into Bishop's past. However, it's all ruined when Eleanor notices Scarlett 'Scooch' Hailton (Olivia Chenery) and recognizes her from that time she kissed Pike in Amsterdam.

Meanwhile back in Cyprus, Mikey and Alex almost come to the point of war with Mikey threatening to take over the business. This comes to a head during a final meeting with Stefan when Alex kills the police chief to show Mikey who's really in charge. In the final moments of this rollercoaster episode, we see Alex get a message from Eleanor that reveals that Pike and Bishop are undercover cops. So we know the next episode is definitely going to be a big one.
