    So…were Krymov and Lamb in Prague at the same time. Standish mentions Prague in 93 to Krymov as one of his triple dealings and the date on the sign in sheet (when Lamb said he was on Prague and couldn’t have signed) was 93 or was it 95? Maybe just a coincidence, but it’d be the ultimate twist if Krymov is actually the mastermind.

        The biggest difference that I’ve seen so far (apart from the condensed timeline) is that Lamb seems to be Popov’s ‘white whale’ instead of the other way around. Looking forward to see how it’s resolved in Episode 6.
