Everything goes pretty much to plan, as Bond and Tatiana seduce each in Istanbul other before making love in front of a hidden camera. Bond and Tatiana take the SPEKTOR (which is booby-trapped to explode on inspection by MI6's top scientists) and board the Orient Express to Europe, pursued by various KGB operatives. Bond, and his new friend Darko Kerim, head of Station Turkey, kill all but one of the KGB men, but Kerim and the remaining man kill each other. Grant then makes contact with Bond, misling into his trust by posing as a British agent, and explains the whole plan to Bond after subduing him and Tatiana. As Grant finally shoots Bond, 007 deflects the bullet with a book and a cigarette case, and Grant is shot dead by Bond in the ensuing fight.
