Netflix dropped The Diplomat recently with the eight-part political drama focusing on Kate Wyler (played by Keri Russell), who becomes the US ambassador in London.

The Diplomat ended on a huge cliffhanger after Kate and the British Foreign Secretary Austin Dennison (David Gyasi) uncovered a mammoth conspiracy orchestrated by the British Prime Minster Nicol Trowbridge (Rory Kinnear).

Added into the mix, in London Hal and Stuart Heyford (Eto Essandoh) were caught in the middle of a car bomb with things left unclear about whether they’d made it out alive.
