That’s it. Our Sunday night slot has come to an end and whether or not we enjoyed the final episode, there’s a bit of us that wishes it could continue. AC-12 still has an unsure future and our favourite trio have said their goodbye’s for now, but do we honestly think that was the final series? I certainly don’t. Over the past week, I’ve watched interviews with the cast saying things like ‘it comes to a natural end’. I disagree as there was nothing natural about that and he simply cannot be H. I won’t accept it.
Buckells for H
I point blank refuse to believe that this was the crazy answer that we’ve been waiting for. This frenzied fourth man that Hastings and the team have been searching for… Buckells? No. It can’t be. He is one of the most clinically boring men that I’ve seen on Line of Duty and yet the producers expect me to believe that he’s been the big guy telling everyone to murder.
The series had a huge, over the top marketing campaign, an unsatisfying baddie and an ending that fell flat on its face. Over the course of the past seven episodes, there have been peaks and troughs but I always felt that it was worth waiting it out because something big was coming. I wasn’t the only one that felt like this. A huge influx of fans took to Twitter to share their fury towards this latest season. I assumed that all loose ends would have been tied and I could sleep happy. Instead, I was left with 1000000 more questions that kept me thinking throughout the night. E.g.
- Who is Jo Davidson’s bent copper father?
- Who is H? (I’m not taking Buckells for an answer)
- Is AC-12 going to continue?
Now I’m not saying I am a scriptwriter or anything of the sort but we all have our ideal ending and I don’t think any of them ended with that silly man as H. After episode one, I made a prediction that Rohan Sindhwani was the bent cop at the top of the chain. Obviously, I was wrong and he has barely even made an appearance in the second half of the season. But if I were to dabble my hand in scriptwriting, I would have probably opted for one of these storylines for H.
- Chloe, the new supporting role in AC-12. Could she have been linked to one of the OCG’s of the past?
- Patricia Carmichael – The woman that we all love to hate, at least she would have made sense!
- Marcus Thurwell – We saw the eyebrows last week and they could have easily played on him not being dead.
All I want to know is where I sign up… well to Davidson’s version anyway. On the last series of Line of Duty, we saw Gail Biggeloe shipped off to her new lifestyle. However, the small council house that Gail was offered is not even on the same planet as Jo’s.
Davidson got reeled into a world of severe crime and misconduct, set her colleague up for murder and somehow managed to bag herself a detached country home, lovely partner and a beautiful dog too. She’s completely winning at life, to be honest.
Judging on the way that this series has terminated, I would suggest that it is highly likely that there will be more to follow. Yes, we might get some more answers but there is no chance I will drag myself through another series to get there. A lost viewer for the future… unfortunately so.
All I can say now is goodbye… mate.
