The Honorable Woman Episode 2 “The Unfaithful Husband” airs Thursday, August 7th on SundanceTV at 10/9c.

Episode Synopsis: The Honorable Woman Episode 2 “The Unfaithful Husband” – With the hunt on for Atika’s son, the head of MI6’s Middle East desk SIR HUGH HAYDEN-HOYLE (Stephen Rea) starts to look into who killed Meshal and why, though he is blocked from any further line of inquiry by his boss, DAME JULIA WALSH (Janet McTeer), on the instructions of the CIA. However, Julia tells him to look in a different direction, which means turning his attention to Nessa. As more of Nessa’s past is uncovered, including how she and Atika (Lubna Azabal) were kidnapped eight years before in Gaza, Nessa receives a mysterious phone call from a man with connections to Kasim’s kidnapping, who threatens to divulge secrets from this time in her past.

Show Summary: “The Honorable Woman” follows Nessa Stein (Gyllenhaal), whose father was a Zionist arms procurer; as children, she and her brother witness his assassination. Years later, after inheriting her father’s company, she dramatically inverts its purpose from supplying arms to laying high-spec data cabling networks between Israel and the West Bank. Now in her thirties, her sudden appointment to the House of Lords, apparently due to her tireless promotion of projects for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians, creates an international political maelstrom.

Joining Gyllenhaal is a top international cast including: Academy Award nominee Stephen Rea (“The Shadow Line,” “Father & Son,” V for Vendetta); Oscar and Tony Award® nominee Janet McTeer (“Damages,” Albert Nobbs); Lindsay Duncan (“The Hollow Crown,” “White Heat”); Andrew Buchan (“Broadchurch,” “Garrow’s Law,” “The Fixer”); BAFTA Award® nominee Katherine Parkinson (“The IT Crowd,” “Sherlock”); Eve Best (“Nurse Jackie,” The King’s Speech); Lubna Azbal (Incendies, Occupation, Paradise Now, Body of Lies); Tobias Menzies (“Game of Thrones,” “Rome,” “The Shadow Line”); Igal Naor (300: Rise Of An Empire, Green Zone) and more.
