Scott and Bailey Series 2 Episode 8 Season Finale
UK / ITV1 / 60 minutes / AIRDATE: Monday 30 April 2012 @ 9.00pm
It’s the final episode of the series tonight and it’s been an entertaining ride, even if this second series has really belonged to Gill – Amelia Bullmore has really shone and if the show does go into a third season the production team might want to think about changing the name of the series to Scott, Bailey and Gill.
Hung-over from a hen night, Rachel’s (Suranne Jones) day goes from bad to worse when D.C.I. Julie Dodson (Pippa Haywood) arrives at the station to tell her that Nick Savage has been brutally assaulted and that she’s top of the list of suspects. Feeling vulnerable and scared, and unable to recall the events of the previous night, Rachel is struggling to convince even herself that she didn’t do it.
Having thought she’d made her peace with Andy (Nicholas Gleaves), Janet (Lesley Sharp) is shocked to discover that Andy has given her misinformation, resulting in Gill (Amelia Bullmore) missing an appointment with the Coroner. Unable to get to the bottom of who is messing her around, a furious and heartbroken Gill tells Janet and Andy that one of them will have to leave the syndicate.
When Gill first meets Margaret Selwyn, it’s to tell her that her husband’s death seems to have been accidental – he slipped in the bath and banged his head. But when Margaret’s two daughters, Joanne and Catherine, tell Janet that their mother often talked of her plans to kill their dad, Gill is forced to re-investigate the case.
TRIVIA: Lesley Sharp who plays Janet Scott and Nicholas Gleaves who plays Andy are married in real life!
