(Series 23, ep. 24 by Isla Gray 14.9.21) Please hop over to Metro to read my breathless review of this episode. But before you go:
When Fletch was looking for Jeni amid the bomb carnage and she appeared wafting down the stairs I wrote in my notes, ‘Like a cockroach, Jeni is fine.’ But hopefully not for long, unless she finds a way to explain away the passports she’s been hiding in her desk drawer.
Normally I would say ‘why didn’t she keep the passports at home?’ but this time as well as the usual answer (Plot Reasons) there is also the practical answer that she’s about to move in with Fletch (or has already).
Line of the week: (Louis doesn’t want Kylie to go back into the bombed-out hospital) ’I can’t lose you. Don’t be an idiot. I love you.’ (Kylie) ‘This idiot’ll be back. I promise.’ Total blessikins. It’s like a Poundshop Gone With The Wind and I couldn’t be happier. Kylie’s little face when she heard Louis say he loves her…
Meanwhile, Josh’s tension when he didn’t know if Ange would make it was so real. Trieve Blackwood-Cambridge is brilliant.
Bernie mentioned that if Cameron survived he could have the stent operation – so he really did have a dicky heart after all.
I knew Hanssen was going to name surströmming as his favourite meal. We saw him happily tucking into that in this episode from 2017.
When is a hero not a hero: ‘Just remember I saved you,’ were Cameron’s last words to his mother. Oh cheers, son. Thanks for saving me from the bomb you planted.
