Storyline

A anonymous letter writer, apparently intent on having Annie Keel released after serving twenty-five years for a brutal double homicide, is able to demonstrate that at least one other individual was present during the murders, but who is he, what is his motive, and why has he come forward now after all these years?

A mother's love knows no bounds.

More evidence comes to light claiming that Annie Keel was innocent, the team start to believe she's guilty of something, but unclear as to whether it's murder or not.

For me the scene where Sam enters his recreated bedroom and has flashbacks is one of the most memorable moments from this show, they created true terror and fear, an excellent performance from Cal MacAninch as Sam.

More laughs once again, Grace and Mel, the moment where Annie clicks Boyd's back into place was very funny. Harriet Walter continues to impress as Annie, and her scenes with Sam were brilliant, packed with true emotion. Very well acted all round.

Boyd's showdown is a great moment, worsened by Grace's helplessness as she can only watch on in horror. Even more incredible is the tone of the ending, happy endings were few and far between, just now and then it was a nice touch.

A worthy conclusion, excellent.
