Finally, all the answers we dreamed of were given to us in a last explosive episode. So who was the killer? Was it Fiona Grayson, Liz Baildon, Ram Sidhu or Dean Barton?
Find out in our recap below.
First of all, a reminder of the first five episodes …
What happened in episode six?
It was a grim start to the last episode, with Cassie recovering from a car accident as the team neared the end of the case.
Frantic with worry, Sunny ran to the hospital to see Cassie. There was bad news: her work partner was not in a good way. She had a brain hemorrhage and underwent surgery.
Dr Leanne Balcombe (Georgia Mackenzie) arrived at the hospital and told Sunny that no one had witnessed the crash and that the vehicle that hit Cassie had fled the scene.
Sunny wondered if Cassie could have caused the accident herself, and on purpose. He had worried about her state of mind. But Leanne reassured him that Cassie seemed to be fine when she left the morgue just before the accident.
A nurse told Cassie’s family that the operation went very well and that she was returned to intensive care, where she remained in a coma.Liz (Susan Lynch) said she would tell her fiancée Janet (Amanda Douge) the truth about her past, that she made the mistake of her life right after police training was completed. She credited Janet with helping her forget and relive, but added, “Except now I have to tell you who I really am. ”
Ram (Phaldut Sharma) was convinced the police would come and get him. He was sure he would be charged with the murder because the other suspects would say he was the killer. Maybe they even thought he had? Either way, he was going to fight them.
There was a slight relief when Sunny asked her partner Sal to marry her as they sat in the hospital waiting room, and she agreed.
Sunny wanted to verify the whereabouts of all the suspects at the time of Cassie’s accident. Cassie was still in a coma.
Following Cassie’s hunch about a line of inquiry, the team discovered that Dean’s (Andy Nyman) older brother Steven died in 1989 from a fatal stab wound to the eye. .
No one was ever arrested and there were no witnesses, although the original reports suggested that Dean’s family, the Quinns, had a good idea of who had done it.
DS Murray Boulting (Jordan Long) searched Dean’s bank accounts. He found nothing of interest – except that an account was listed with the name George Graves. Dean had it in place and was the signing officer. The account identifier was “godson”. Dean made regular payments of £ 40 per month to the account, until a lump sum payment of £ 10,000 was deposited in cash at a branch in Rochester. The money was then immediately transferred to an account in the name of Grace Williams, who turned out to be Ram’s first wife.
Sunny asked Murray to investigate further, and before long the police showed up to arrest Ram on suspicion of murder. During the interview with Sunny, Ram denied any involvement in a fight with Walsh in the pub three weeks before Walsh’s death. He said he never sued Walsh, despite good evidence to the contrary. He continued to change his story.
Sunny told Ram that the phone mast data linked Ram and Dean to the same location in Surrey at the same time. It was clearly more than a coincidence, but Ram denied ever meeting Dean. His alibi that he was going for a walk to clear his head was ridiculous.
Ram couldn’t get out of the hot water when Sunny confronted him that Dean had transferred £ 10,000 to his ex-wife Grace’s account. Grace had no idea that this online bank account they had created still existed. Nor that from 2001 to 2008, a lump sum of £ 5,000 was paid into this account three or four times a year, from the account managed by Dean. It was clear Dean had been paying Ram for the help for some time.
Ram’s phone calls were traced to customs officer Andy Renfold at a UK port on the day the money appeared in the account. Sunny said it was not “a leap forward” to assume it had something to do with drug importation and corruption. What power did Dean have over Ram to corrupt him?
Ram insisted he didn’t kill Walsh. He said he found him bleeding from his head and tried to save him by giving him cardiopulmonary resuscitation. Sunny then passed him a fountain pen they found in Ram’s office. How long had he been using one? Could Ram be the killer because Walsh was murdered along with a similar one?
Police took Dean to be interviewed at the station by Sunny with DC’s Fran Lingley (Carolina Main) by his side. Dean was told that his version of events was “significantly” different from that of Ram and Fiona (Liz White).
Dean said he was back for the night in question after Cassie last spoke to him. Although he initially said the car did not stop until they were pulled over for Rob’s drinking and driving, he admitted that it may have done well, but he didn’t know because he slept for most of the trip. He denied Fiona and Ram’s accounts that he chased Walsh and helped put his body in the car.
Sunny was killed when he asked Dean how he convinced Ram – an ambitious young cop – to be part of his cocaine smuggling operation. They handed him the bank statements linking the payments to Ram and said they had arrested customs officer Renfold who was cooperating with the police. Dean straightened up, saying “no comment” to all the other questions.
Looking at the evidence board, Sunny had a blast moment. The Quinns and the Walsh family both lived on London’s N9. Were they two rival criminal families? Dean’s brother, Steven, was found stabbed in the middle of the two addresses, after all. Sunny guessed that Walsh could have killed Steven and Dean, then murdered Walsh as a reward.
There was another big breakthrough when the lab found the serial number on the fountain pen that was found in the victim’s skull. It had been bought by Dean’s brother, Steven. “Do you think Steven killed Walsh?” Dean asked. “Not likely,” Fran said. “He had been dead for eight months. Records showed that “DB” had been engraved on the cover. With the gun tied to Dean, he was charged with murder. He made a tearful confession, admitting he had found Walsh unconscious after tripping. “I did what he did to Steven,” Dean said. “I stabbed him.
He had seen Ram looking for him, so he left and came back ten minutes later when Ram was giving him cardiopulmonary resuscitation and the others had caught up with him. Dean was inconsolable as he was led to the cells.
Liz (Susan Lynch) visited her boss at the police station and said she always thought Walsh’s death was an accident – but that was no excuse to cover it up. She was taken away by the police.
The Range Rover involved in the traffic accident with Cassie turned out to be driven by a car thief, not one of the suspects.
Ram has been charged with accepting money for importing a controlled substance and breaching public trust as a sitting police officer.
Fiona told her partner Geoff (Daniel Flynn) that the police agreed that none of them knew what Dean had done – but they were going to accuse her, Liz and Ram, of preventing a legal burial. She told the police about the forgery of the permit and her lawyer thought she would get a custodial sentence for it. Geoff was “beyond amazed” by everything, but said he loved Fiona no less.
Fran asks Sunny why he was waiting to talk to Cassie about the case being resolved. “Go tell her we did it – or she did… again,” she said.
Sunny arrived at the hospital and, to her devastation, learned that Cassie was unlikely to ever recover her brain function. He sat down at her bedside in shock.
The next thing we knew was Cassie’s funeral. The co-director had been killed. Sunny paid a heartfelt tribute to his colleague and friend, whom he loved. “I can say without a shadow of a doubt that she was the best I have ever met… her job was not to judge but to seek the truth and she did,” he said. he declares.
No one could have seen this plot twist coming. Even though Cassie was in a coma throughout the finale, we thought the beloved sleuth would surely pull through. The question now is what does this mean for the future of Forgotten? Will there be a fifth series or is the drama over forever?
