'Tehran' Episode 7 Review: Will Milad be killed by the Mossad agents after Tamar fails her mission?
In the penultimate episode of 'Tehran', Milad's fate hangs in the balance
Milad (Shervin Alenabi) is heartbroken and furious — as he should be, because he just discovered that the girl he's madly in love with is actually a Mossad agent and got his friend killed in front of him — albeit unintentionally. So it's a far cry from their frollicking romance.
Tamar (Niv Sultan) goes to visit him in his custodial room, where he is sitting and bruised and broody. She had convinced her 'organisation' that she needs him for their mission, but the truth is that she doesn't obviously want him blown to smithereens. She cannot talk to him freely as there are cameras everywhere, but she tries to convince him to co-operate with them, and that he won't die.
Milad has lost faith in anything that she has to say and spits in her face reminding her of Kareem's unfortunate death. He makes a rather cold statement, "I'm the one in chains, but I'm free..." referring to the fact that Tamar is bound to her miserable duty.
Tamar is in a flux this episode as she learns that her father Mordechai has been held captive by a frenzied Faraz (Shaun Toub), whose wife is in the hands of the Mossad agents. For the first time, the composure breaks as she fumbles at a crucial time, leaving the team irate.
Due to her chaotic state of mind and inability to carry out her tasks, Milad's fate lies in the balance as the Mossad agents feel that there is no need for him. On the other hand, Faraz has reached a breaking point as matters have gotten personal for him. His wife Nahid tries to tell him to not be foolhardy and "cruel" like them.
Finally, Faraz is brought back from the precipice and sets Mordechai free, which means good news for Tamar. However, she doesn't have much time to celebrate as Milad's life is in eminent danger. It remains to be seen what happens in the finale, and who gets to live or die in this precarious battle of politics and personalities. Tune in for the finale, next week. 'Tehran' streams on Apple.
