*Warning: This article contains spoilers from the finale of The Capture.
That’s it. After six weeks of agonising over what on earth happened to Hannah Roberts (played by Laura Haddock) and the impossible case of Shaun Emery (Callum Turner), The Capture closed tonight with a tragic ending for the framed soldier.
After discovering he was merely a pawn to expose corrupt CCTV evidence, Shaun eventually handed himself into police a hero with PTSD, taking the wrap for the barrister’s murder to protect what is a head ache of a moral dilemma: is it wrong to fake someone’s crime if you know they’re guilty?
Shaun’s story appears to be wrapped up. He’s behind bars but he knows his daughter and ex-girlfriend are behind him, which we learned over the course of the six episode run is that really mattered to him.
However, detective Rachel Carey (Holliday Granger) blindsided all of by bursting into a private meeting with Danny Hart (Ben Miles) and DSU Gemma Garland (Lia Williams) to take a sudden U-turn and join the crusade to take down potential terror threats via any means possible – including a lie. Although, it almost panned out very differently for Rachel as Holliday Granger filmed alternative endings.
But surely there’s an ulterior motive? And if so, does that mean there’s a series two?
Will there be a series 2 of the Capture?
Metro.co.uk caught up with writer Ben Chanan who hinted there’s definitely more of Rachel’s story to explore, and after the success of series one, we’d say there’s a good chance we’ll be catching up with the detective again.
‘I am thinking about [series two],’ Ben told us. ‘We are talking about it but I cannot confirm or deny I’m afraid.’
That sounds like a done deal to us, and Ben agreed Rachel’s move raises questions which need to be answered.
‘I think Carey joining them at the end is a moral tragedy,’ he continued. ‘She’s deciding it’s best for her in every sense, to go along with it. It could be life threatening to her but it could also enhance her need to know the truth about things and this is where the truth is revealed.
‘There is ambiguity about what she’s going in there for and I’m going to leave that there…’
The Capture is available to stream on iPlayer.
