A good spy series or movie can be the perfect mental escape after a long day. The new Prime Video series Citadel should do just the trick. Citadel kicks off on a fast moving train in the Italian Alps. There we find Priyanka Chopra Jonas’ character, Nadia, on a secret mission as her boss, Bernard (Tucci), is feeding her orders through her ear piece. They, along with her partner, Mason Keane (Madden), work for an organization named Citadel. Mason is also on board and you can sense some thick tension between these two. Their mission is ambushed in a plot to take down Citadel agents. The train explodes leaving Mason and Nadia stranded separately in the middle of the Alps with no memory of what happened. Eight years pass and Mason is living a new life with a wife and children and starts having flashbacks to his past that he can’t piece together. Bernard shows up unannounced, as there’s a new threat at hand. Lesley Manville is the series’ core villain, Dahlia Archer. She’s partnering with the Manticore organization to get their hands on a suitcase carrying nuclear codes and kill every remaining Citadel agent.
