Storyline

With his fingerprints on the gun that killed Zoe, Luther is a prime suspect and goes on the run. Only his sergeant, Justin Ripley, believes he is innocent. Luther hides out with Alice who, along with the loyal Justin, helps him to steal and get rid of the tell-tale gun. Justin is also suspended after shouting a warning to Luther when Reed meets him one-to-one but hopes to provoke him into action so that a sniper, positioned on the roof, will shoot him. Luther and Alice also persuade Mark of his innocence and send him to the police station where he takes the diamonds - Reed's cut from the Carrodus robbery - from Reed's locker. Reed pursues Mark, straight into the trap Alice and Luther have set for him at the deserted Waterloo train station, culminating in a sort of revenge. Written by don @ minifie-1

Unpredictably Brilliant!
8 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I had to giver this episode 10 out of 10 because it kept me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. I think I am now hopelessly in love with Ruth Wilson. She was so perfectly cast in this whole series as an enigmatic criminal genius who is seriously attracted to Luther. Steven Mackintosh, whom I have seen in many series and one-off dramas over the years, has ever been better as a police detective on the edge. Idris Elba plays Luther and could not be more different than his character Stringer in The Wire and is a charismatic lead- I have to say I preferred him as Stringer though. The whole cast of supporting actors give brilliant support particularly as Ripley and the investigating officer. Hell, I even liked Paul McGann and I rarely like him in anything (don't ask me why). Altogether a fantastic series topped off by this last nail-biting episode, which I will not spoil by telling anything about it.
