So how do you think it will end or how would you like it to end?

crazyH Sun 05-Feb-23 11:13:36

Sorry, no idea. I’m the only one in my family who hasn’t watched it. 😂

With TLR out of Catherine’s life for good, but hope she’s not left traumatised! Ryan will come good, I hope.

Calendargirl Sun 05-Feb-23 12:01:37

I think Tommy will die.

Also think Claire might.

There again, so could Catherine, Alison, Nev.

Don’t think Ryan will.

No idea really, of course.

Dee1012 Sun 05-Feb-23 12:04:59

I think Alison or Ryan will kill Tommy...and potentially Claire will die!confused

Maggiemaybe Sun 05-Feb-23 12:22:07

Whatever happens, I want Catherine and Ryan to come safely out the other side.

It’d be good if all the baddies, including TLR, the criminal gang, Faisal and the PE teacher, got their come-uppance, but I can’t see how that can possibly happen in the space of 70 minutes!

My paper had an article imploring those of us who will watch tonight not to let the cat out of the bag on SM, not to spoil it for a) ppl who watch later on catch up and b) viewers in other countries who are behind the uk with the story.

I can see cats being let out all over….

I go round in circles, as Calendargirl seems to do too smile).

I fear for Claire. She seems doomed to a bad end - either death or finding out that Neil was only with her to get to Catherine.

Ryan will survive, I think; but whether he will go off with Tommy or make peace with his granny remains to be seen.

Alison? Could go either way, but is likely to play a role in the denouement. The actress is too big a name to have come in just to fix Catherine's car and drive about in a forklift.

Neil is a baddie, I think. Or maybe not.

I have no idea what will happen with the teacher or the pharmacist. The little girl's coat might be a distraction, or maybe she's an unwitting drugs mule or something. Who knows? The subplots are too much for my little brain to follow.

I did wonder if there would be a final shock twist, with all the ends seemingly sewn up, and Catherine (plus or minus any of the others) heading off to see the world in the Landie when it explodes because of a bomb planted by Tommy or the gangsters. Or Catherine and Claire doing a Thelma and Louise, killing the gangsters, Tommy and Neil, and driving it off a cliff, leaving Ryan to inherit the Earth.

After learning how evil Tommy really is, I think that in the last episode when he was speaking to his dad, Ryan was trying to find out where he was to set him up to be caught.

I think that there will be a showdown between Catherine, Ryan and Tommy, and the good guys will win. I believe that the ending is awesome.

Can't wait - sub-titles as the ready!

TLR flys to Malaga with Ryan leaving Catherine devastated unable to protect Ryan any longer she has a breakdown.

Claire and Husband split up and Ann joins Catherine in a breakdown. The entire family left traumatised

The PE teacher is found guilty of abuse and the pharmacist is found guilty of murder.The packaging of the meds give him away. His family devastated.

LOUISA1523 Sun 05-Feb-23 16:23:45

Alison will kill TLR

Nell8 Sun 05-Feb-23 16:37:50

I hope Catherine shows some sisterly love to Claire after being so cruel to her last week.

Calendargirl Sun 05-Feb-23 17:09:26

I did wonder if Catherine’s tears in the trailer for tonight’s episode were for her sister, as poor Claire seems torn between all of them, and if she gets killed, I think Catherine will feel huge guilt at some of the things she said to her.

Claire just seems to be a punch bag for all of them.

foxie48 Sun 05-Feb-23 17:54:35

Tommy will kill Catherine then Ryan will kill Tommy. Claire will leave Neil to continue looking after Ryan. The pharmacist will get charged with murder eventually but not until the teacher has been locked up and lost his job.

Sarah75 Sun 05-Feb-23 20:09:20

We’ll find out in less than an hour!

Washerwoman Sun 05-Feb-23 20:10:08

It's ridiculous as it's only a TV programme but I can hardly bear to watch.I don't want Catherine to get killed .But I also don't want to see her devastated by seeing one of her family killed either.The poor woman has been through too much !

Daddima Sun 05-Feb-23 20:14:50

I think Claire will die, possibly killed by Tommy, and Ryan will kill Tommy ( revenge is a dish best served cold, remember?)

Or maybe not.

Urmstongran Sun 05-Feb-23 20:26:23

35 minutes to go! I’ll be having subtitles on too.
I don’t want to miss ANYTHING!
The only thing I think might happen is that Clare dies and Catherine will be distraught.
I’m going to feel like a wrung out dishmop by 10pm...

Sarah75 Sun 05-Feb-23 20:55:01

Don’t forget it’s on til 10.10, Urmstongran!

Jaxjacky Sun 05-Feb-23 20:59:03

Here we go!!

Doodledog Sun 05-Feb-23 21:11:57

I nearly missed the start! The battery in my clock is obviously running out.

Doodledog Sun 05-Feb-23 21:51:47


Ring for backup, and Do Not Go In There!

Fleur20 Sun 05-Feb-23 22:10:11

Pittcity Sun 05-Feb-23 22:10:23

Calendargirl Sun 05-Feb-23 22:10:30
