What will happen in Slow Horses season 3?

The series is an adaptation of Mick Herron’s series of novel in the best possible way. We have already seen in the two seasons that the story is pretty close to the source and if same theme will be followed then we will see the kidnap of Catherine by a group of rebels who are against the Royal security agency. The story of Slow Horses season 3 is going to be nailbiting.
