Series 4, Episode 3: Line of Duty evolved quickly and ended with an unexpected act of terror none of us could expect! (Spoliers Alert)

Series 4 continues and as expected, we were kept on our toes all the way through…

Basic Plot

There was secrecy between Huntley and Fleming. AC-12 investigated Tim’s murder and want access to all the evidence on Trapdoor and Tim Ifield. They looked into evidence and found that there was a 90% chance that Balaclava man could be Tim…

Thandi Newton (as DCI Huntley) was being hunted down by AC-12 and she did not like it at all. At some point, she must have thought about what she would do if she was caught.  She also seemed very dismissive of her husband and she clearly had other things to think about.

Her whereabouts… secrets…. evidence altering! All of it was very secretive and she was not making it any better for herself. She was just digging herself deeper and deeper. Her horrible way of framing Hana for Tim’s murder was definitely too far. Such a cruel trick to cover her back!

Micheal Gardner had new evidence against him from a witness who said he grabbed her and invited her to his house. He was identified by the victim, and later admitted the offence. He was being charged on top of his kidnapping and murder offences. I still don’t think that he was the murderer or kidnapper… he still did not fit. I felt sorry for him.

Thoughts:

A lot unravelled in this episode and new leads bought AC-12 into moral danger. I felt sorry for Micheal and the poor woman Huntley framed. It was heartless and I still do not approve of her character. I found Huntley was very over persuasive in this episode which may eventually get her caught.

It was extremely gripping and I was surprised by the ending, which was a shock to all of us. Yes we were told that Nick was dangerous but this was new. For the first time, we are presented with the idea that there are more than one involved in the balaclava case.

The director, John Strickland definitely did a great job in this episode and left us gasping at the end!

Questions

  1. Who was the balaclava man who attacked Abbott?
  2. Are there more of them than we think?
  3. Is abbott dead?

So many unanswered questions to ponder over until next week.

If you have any comments, I would love to hear from you.

Bye guys 🙂
