‘Taken’ Episode Guide (March 6): Government Officials Embezzle Refugee Funds

“Ready” (03/06/17) – Bryan (Clive Standen) gets his first chance in the field but the mission goes bust, resulting in a tragic death. The team uncovers a group of government officials skimming off of refugee funds, which also leads Christina (Jennifer Beals) to reconnect with a long lost love.

Meanwhile, Asha (Brooklyn Sudano) shows up unexpectedly at Bryan’s doorstep. Also starring Gaius Charles (John), Monique Gabriela Curnen (Becca Vlasik), Michael Irby (Scott), Jose Pablo Cantillo (Dave), James Landry Hébert (Rem), Simu Liu (Faaron) and Jennifer Marsala (Riley).

Guest starring in this episode are Celeste Desjardins (Cali Mills), Joseph Cochrane (Oleksander Baniak), Dominic Fumusa (Harry Ward), Romano Ozari (Mejia), Nick Baillie (Ken Drummond), Brian Jagersky (Senator Wilkes), Lanette Ware (Secretary Teresa Redcliff) and Clair Rankin (Clara Ward).

From executive producer Luc Besson (“Taken,” “The Fifth Element”) comes a modern-day edge-of-your-seat thriller that follows the origin story of younger, hungrier former Green Beret Bryan Mills (Clive Standen, “Vikings”) as he deals with a personal tragedy that shakes his world. As he fights to overcome the trauma of the incident and exact revenge, Mills is pulled into a career as a deadly CIA operative, a job that awakens his very particular, and very dangerous, set of skills. In 30 years, this character is destined to become the Bryan Mills that we’ve come to love from the “Taken” films.

The cast includes Jennifer Beals, Gaius Charles, Brooklyn Sudano, Monique Gabriela Curnen, Michael Irby, James Landry Hébert and Jose Pablo Cantillo.

Alexander Cary serves as writer and executive producer. Luc Besson, Matthew Gross, Edouard de Vésinne, Thomas Anargyros and director Alex Graves also executive produce.
