I've just finished S1 & 2 on Netflix so despite being left quite confused and frustrated by the loose ends and endless 'coincidences', like all good addictions I'm in for another go grin.

I'll have to watch on catch up though as I don't have broadcast TV.

You are corret re: the end of S2. She was under the bridge when the 'spook' type cop (I think) came along and told her she was dead and would she like to join him and Laura undercover.

I found and read the old Telly Addicts threads and someone rightly pointed out just how undercover could she be with a Joker style slash up one side of her face grin

So as it's fresh in my mind..

Do we think she killed Juliet or was it Edward? (probably not on purpose if he did. I think he knew his Mum was stressed and tried to comfort the baby and dropped her)

Just how much of a total dickhead will Jason be this time? Or maybe they all jetted off to Singapore as planned. I hope to God someone got some serious counselling for poor Edward. How much can one little boy have happen to him?

Will we see the lovely Rav?

I really went off previous eye candy Tim in S2 but I guess he could redeem himself if he was to appear. I don't think we were shown the outcome of his embezzlement arrest so maybe not.

I hope we find out that paedo Dawkins has been killed in prison while awaiting trial for what he did to Edward.

Did Adam (the little boy that escaped) wake from his coma?

And probably a thousand and one other questions we need answers to. Feel free to add your own grin

I think I need to rewatch it, can't remember half of S2. Must have been in a fuge state.

cherrytree63 Tue 26-Jan-21 12:50:33

@Blondeshavemorefun I watch far too much TV grin
I rewatched s1 when s2 came out, I prefer to watch series as a box set, I can't remember from week to week what happens blush

I’ve just been through the series 2 chat thread (thanks for linking Blondes) and it’s about as clear as mud! I do have a vague recollection and it looks like the last episode was a huge letdown and there were tons of unanswered questions. Who was the killer? I started skim reading the last few pages but nothing jumped out at me.

I shall still be watching ce soir though.

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-Jan-21 13:54:21

The killer was her sons best friends mum

She died in a fire. Now sure how

So her family think she died sad

Yep I read the recap so think I’m up to speed now. And DD has decided she’s going to watch series 1 and 3 so I might join her for some of that!

Chambored Tue 26-Jan-21 17:21:16

I hope they do a recap!

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-Jan-21 17:36:26

I’m not sure about this. I did enjoy season 1. I remember little of season 2 but I am sure it was just a little meh. I’ll May be record and if nothing else is on watch.

What s 3 is about

“Following on from the dramatic conclusion of the previous series, the new eight-parter sees Marcella in Belfast as an undercover detective.

She has taken on a new identity, Keira, and has infiltrated the infamous Maguire crime family but as she investigates their activities, questions come to the fore about how much she’s embraced the Keira personality and left Marcella behind.

In true Marcella style, the series has interweaving storylines with strands focusing upon the Maguires’ criminal operations. As she inhabits the character of Keira, Marcella’s quest for the truth puts her in danger and others in harm’s way.

Her undercover role makes her take risks, but will her old life eventually catch up with her?”

Ooh a non spoiler thread! 🙂
Just getting my Paddington stare ready for those bingers who pop in and say “oh not a spoiler but look out for the man in the blue hat in ep 3” - It’s a Sin bingers, I’m looking at you! 😂

Blondeshavemorefun Tue 26-Jan-21 18:31:25

I know @RandomDent. I’ve even put in the title

Sure there will be one 🙄

I know many will binge but I like weekly. Always have but esp in lockdown as something to look forward to

I’ve forgotten most of it, but will just go with it and hope for the best! I’ve always liked Anna Friel, dodgy gob notwithstanding.
