This felt more of a sequel to "Tinker, Tailor..." than "The Honourable Schoolboy". The focus is back on Smiley as he quietly and slowly plays his final hand against Karla.

Tell Max that it concerns the Sandman. Gifted with the clarity that hunger, tiredness, and confusion can supply, Smiley knew for certain she must have no part in what he had to do. He knew-- he was barely at the threshold-- yet he still knew that it was just possible, against all the odds, that he had been given, in late age, a chance to return to the rained-out contests of his life and play them after all.
