    I agree that this could be seen as the greatest ever episode of Luther – although Episodes 3 and 4 of Series 1 are actually very hard to beat…

    The interesting thing with this episode is the fact that you find yourself siding against Luther and co. I was very much on the side of the killer, of Marwood – whose wife had been tragically taken from him, and who was now a one-man vigilante. And I was loving every minute. Because this is what these people deserve! They don’t deserve a nice, quiet, peaceful life after they have ruined and/or ended others’. So I was all for Cochran being hung!

    However, that was all over like a shot once he held Ripley up at gunpoint. How dare he treat our Justin like that! Of course we were screaming for Justin to back off but, like you say, we knew he wouldn’t. He was right, Ripley. As much as I was up for him letting Marwood go free, he was exactly right that someone innocent would get hurt. And unfortunately, that innocent person turned out to be himself…

    I agree about the “Operation Luther” storyline running a bit dry too. Stark was very intriguing character in Episode 1 and I was looking forward to seeing what he was going to do to bring down Luther. Turns out, he doesn’t do much but stare at people. He’s become very dull and annoying; even more annoying than fast-track promotee DCI Erin Gray – a sentence I thought I’d never say.

    Overall, a shocking and gripping piece of drama tonight, and I cannot wait for the finale next week and, even more so, the return of everyone’s favourite psycho-villainess, Alice Morgan!
