Hustle Series 8 Episode 6 airs Friday February 17 2012, 9pm on BBC One.
Episode Synopsis: Mickey’s found the ultimate mark in multi-millionaire businessman Madani Wasem (played by Abhin Galeya), who is ripe for a stock market scam. The stakes are higher than usual as Wasem is extremely dangerous and the kind of mark they usually avoid.
Mickey has his own reasons for taking the risk – he’s tired of grifting and is ready for retirement. The others are shocked but the prospect of a £10million jackpot is too good to turn down.
There is a surprise in store when Wasem’s broker turns out to be Stacie Monroe (played by Jaime Murray). She’s a useful insider but, when Wasem instructs his enforcer to kill Mickey after the deal is done, the very real prospect of death looms large over the gang.
It’s the end of the road for Mickey and the gang but will they go out in a shower of money or a hail of bullets?
Show Summary: Master con man Mickey ‘Bricks’ Stone (Adrian Lester) and his team of highly skilled accomplices return for the last ever series of Hustle. As always they’ll target London’s rich and greedy and, with their grifting skills better than ever, they’re ready to push themselves to the limit in the search for riches. But pushing themselves is just the start and with the marks looking meaner and the risks higher, Mickey will need some truly ingenious cons if they’re going to keep alive and out of jail. Mickey is joined once again by his trusty tricksters, Albert Stroller (Robert Vaughn), Ash ‘Three Socks’ Morgan (Robert Glenister) and Emma and Sean Kennedy (Kelly Adams, Matt Di Angelo) as they face their biggest challenge yet in an attempt to pull off the ultimate con.
