Ripper Street, the penultimate episode: Exclusive Damien Molony photos
A time of revelation for Man of Secrets, DC Flight?
Detective Constable Albert Flight has been on quite a journey since his arrival at H Division in Ripper Street Series 2 and us along with him. From the moment they met, Flight has been trying to prove to Detective Inspector Reid (Matthew MacFadyen) that he is worthy not only of more than archives research, coffee and Hansom cab fetching, but of his trust and respect, at times a seemingly impossible challenge, even after considerable success not only in office based tasks, but in his undercover mission in episode 4, directly resulting in uncovering a bomb plot.
But the common thematic thread for Flight, providing gripping suspense across the series, has been the secrets that he holds – secrets hinted at even before we met him, in his character profile and the Series 2 trailer, which showed a glimpse of him confessing to a priest, a confession to which we have seen no resolution, only further intrigue, when he told the priest, “I am a liar” at the beginning of episode 5.
The Official Synopsis for upcoming Episode 7 hints at more ‘on-the-scene’ involvement for DC Flight, but shown deep in thought in the above promo photos for the episode, it appears some soul searching may also be on the cards for him. Will this be the moment we uncover his hidden secrets? and will he move further towards or away from the trust that he seeks from Inspector Reid? Perhaps the penultimate instalment of the Victorian drama will be the moment of revelation for this man of mystery and for those of us who have become immersed in his intrigue.
Ripper Street continues on Monday 9 December, 9pm BBC One.
