SUSPECTS SERIES 5 Double-Bill Finale Preview: How will it all end for ‘The Enemy Within’?
Suspects Series 5 concludes on Wednesday, with a double episode finale on Channel 5.
With a new line-up and one epic storyline spreading across a longer season, the latest series has seen the show reach new heights of compelling crime drama. Alongside the central investigation into former boss Martha Bellamy’s murder, we’ve seen masterfully layered cases with cleverly linking subplots. We’ve been introduced to a corrupt new DCI (Jame Murray) with a knack for manipulating evidence and his team. Damien as Jack Weston has been a main focus, with his personal life directly connecting to the cases and affecting his work, inflaming his already passionate approach and creating tension within the team.
As the finale of ‘The Enemy Within’ nears, the big questions remain in this suspense-filled and aptly named series:
Will there be closure, and will justice finally be done, in Martha’s murder investigation?
Will Dodgy Daniel Drummond finally be exposed – and will he do the right thing in the end, or further abuse his power to save his own skin?
Will there be a clear-cut conclusion to the series and the characters’ futures, or will the series end on a cliffhanger?
Last week’s episode saw Jack struggling to sit on the sidelines, as Alisha (Lenora Crichlow) headed up the team’s investigation into the abduction of his daughter Lucy (Lucy Carless). The case led them back to Mo Jones (Neil Stuke) and Stan Turner’s (Sam Stockman) club and to the horrifying discovery that Stan has been abusing Mo’s son. When Mo threw Stan to his death in a multi-storey car park in front of DCI Drummond (James Murray), corrupt Drummond tried to convince Gary (Perry Fitzpatrick), who witnessed the event, that it was suicide. He then manipulated Jack by telling him the truth but that he has to keep the real facts secret in order to protect Lucy, making Jack complicit in the lie. The episode ended with Gary telling Charlie (Clare-Hope Ashitey) that Drummond is lying.
We will have to watch the final episodes to find out the definitive answers to our questions. But, we do know that in the upcoming double-episode finale, not only is the Martha murder case sharply back in focus, but it takes on a surprising new twist. Shocking secrets about Drummond are also revealed and with the team trying to find evidence against him, he responds according to form.
With Jack having been the victim of Drummond’s shady methods throughout the series, there is a strong sense of jeopardy for both characters as the end approaches. The team has been tested by Jack’s drama and the final episodes will reveal if it can come back together or be fractured forever.
But of course, the biggest question of all for us Damien fans is…
Will it all end well for Jack?
We’ll be watching to find out.
