JACK IS BACK! Secrets, Surprises and Subterfuge: Suspects Series 5 Episode 2 Preview

Jack is back on Wednesday and we have a sneak peek of Suspects Series 5 Episode 2!

Suspects Series 5 premiered last week, launching with the gripping and shocking storyline of DI Martha Bellamy’s fatal shooting.

Our top cop show returned with a new cast line-up and a developed format – a longer series with just the one key storyline extending across six episodes and a slightly closer look at the detectives’ personal lives.

The series opener saw Jack Weston right in the centre of the investigation and being personally involved with the case in more ways than one. Martha’s killing is revealed to be a blackmail case and her husband was also found killed. When Jack suspects his ex-girlfriend Rose Harris’s (Karen Hassan) new partner Stan Turner (Sam Stockman) is the prime suspect, Jack himself became the victim of blackmail. Turning to new boss DCI Daniel Drummond (James Murray) for help, a twist ending revealed DCI Dan was already involved in more corrupt ways, and could in fact have set Jack up.

The story continues in episode 2 of the six-part series on Wednesday, and from the look of the synopsis and trailer (below), lines become even more blurred for Jack and the team.

As another murder uncovers further connections to the central case, Jack, DC Charlie Steele (Clare-Hope Ashitey) and new TDC Gary Roscoe (Perry Fitzpatrick) increase their efforts to get the evidence they need to nail the perpetrator. Jack faces secrets and surprises from the past and an ever-shadier DI Drummond employs strategies and subterfuge obstructive to the case.

Check out the synopsis and trailer below. (Spoilers alert!)

Suspects Series 5 Episode 2 Synopsis

When a murder victim is found to be connected to the Bellamy blackmail case, Jack goes out on a limb. The new victim is a young woman named Jasmine, who is found washed up on the riverbank. Charlie is sure that she was connected to the blackmailing of Martha’s husband, so Jack focuses on Stan Turner, the prime suspect for Martha’s death. Stan is not talking, but his girlfriend Rose seems a bit more helpful, although she is too terrified to testify. In search of connections, Jack and Charlie want to reopen the Martha Bellamy case, but DCI Drummond vetoes it. Frustrated, Jack pushes Rose too far.
