The third episode of 'Hanna' sees the titular character trying to ascertain the location of where The Meadows is located. She wants to rescue her friend Clara from the operatives of UTRAX and the only way she knew how was to investigate Passway, a pharmaceutical firm that runs clinical trials. She finds out that the employee of Passway has arranged for a drop off of implants for trainees of the all-new UTRAX operation. She believes that following him, will lead her to the new location of The Meadows and help her find Clara.

Marissa has agreed to help, hesitatingly, and had even arranged for a passport for Clara as well. Marissa also takes out one of the CIA operatives who was on Carmichael's payroll and following Hanna after the former found out that Hanna was alive and that she was the one who had broken into Passway a few days ago. However, Marissa continued to lie to Carmichael about her association with Hanna and even went as far as helping her track the shipment that was headed for The Meadows. However, when she and Hanna wait to embark on a ship, a call from Carmichael has Marissa step out of her car. 

At this time, Hanna decides to go through Marissa's bag because she noticed how touchy Marissa was about Hanna near her bag. She comes across the visiting card that Carmichael had given her and she sees the number on the recent contacts list on Marissa's car. This results in Hanna getting suspicious about Carmichael and so she decides to escape from Marissa. In the process, she even beats up Marissa and leaves her bloody and bruised. Yet, Marissa doesn't understand why Hanna decided to alienate herself from her only ally.

Hanna leaves Marissa behind and ends up following the shipment to the location of The Meadows. She hides her passport along with Clara's in one of the trees around The Meadows facility and attempts to break in and break Clara free. However, what Hanna is unaware of is the fact that UTRAX has managed to convince Clara that the best place for her to be at the moment is at The Meadows. She is given a family, an identity, and assured safety. All of this is something that Clara had lived without for years and that is exactly why UTRAX's bait worked really well on her. 

The added touch of letting Clara read a letter that was written by her mother when she was born ends up changing Clara's mind about The Meadows. She has now begun to consider it her home and the moment that Hanna looks at Clara -- all changed -- she realizes that she made a mistake in coming to rescue her. She had considered Clara to be someone just like her. Someone who was trying to escape the fate of being a trained killer, but all of that has changed in days and that leaves Hanna shocked. It is then that she is captured by the guards of The Meadows. Hanna in a matter of hours has lost her only friend and her only ally. 

'Hanna' Season 2 premiered on July 3 and all episodes can be streamed on Amazon Prime Video.
