What Will Happen in the Upcoming Season?

The fourth season is set to follow the fourth book, “Spook Street,” in the series. 

Aside from what the book’s synopsis suggests, some unresolved plot lines need immediate attention in the fourth season. So, expect them to be addressed first.

As we saw in the previous season, River took a massive step by leaking important documents reflecting illegal actions under Ingrid Tearney’s leadership. After this discovery, River quickly contacted his grandfather to discuss the matter further. But things escalated because the grandfather tried his best to eliminate the evidence. This event tarnished their relationship. It is the first time that River will go against David’s wishes. It will be interesting to watch how this big decision unfolds.

Taking advantage of the situation, Taverner was quick to replace Tearney. The upcoming batch of episodes will reveal how River’s decision to leak the documents will affect others in the vicinity.

Putting the season 3 stuff aside, as we saw in the season 4 sneak peek, a bomb blast in London will keep MI5 and the Slow Horses occupied. Simply put, the plot is about to thicken, and a potential death is involved. Jackson Lamb was seen overshadowing this unfortunate event by saying, “One of my team just died.

The team already treated the viewers to glimpses of Slow Horses Season 4 at the end of the third season’s finale. It’s still available on Apple TV+ and is precisely the same as shown in the YouTube video above.

The footage concisely summarizes what’s going to unravel in the fourth installment. Emma Flyte (Ruth Bradley) will join the show as a newly appointed MI5 member, and MI5 is now under Diana Taverner’s control. 

River Cartright is seen in a complicated state. His grandfather’s declining health was already a huge hurdle for him. But now Frank Harkness’ constant threats are adding to his problems. The concerning bit is that Frank either wants River to join him or choose his death.
