What is the plot for Citadel?

Eight years ago, a global spy agency dedicated to keeping people safe, otherwise known as Citadel, was destroyed by Manticore, a powerful syndicate working behind the scenes.

As per the official synopsis, Mason Kane and Nadia Sinh, two elite agents, narrowly escaped with their lives and had their memories wiped. They’ve been living in hiding with new identities ever since.

That is until one night when Mason is tracked down by his former Citadel colleague, Bernard Orlick, who desperately needs his help to prevent Manticore from establishing a new world order.

Mason seeks out his former partner, Nadia, and the two spies embark on a mission that takes them around the world in an effort to stop Manticore.

All the while the pair must contend with a relationship built on secrets, lies, and a dangerous-yet-undying love – the makings of a thrilling spy series.
