*Warning: This article contains spoilers from episode three of The Capture.
So, it’s taken three weeks but it finally feels like we’re getting some answers as Rachel Carey has landed the high profile homicide she was after when Shaun Emery made the discovery he’d been dreading: Hannah Roberts’ body.
The third instalment of Ben Chapman’s CCTV thriller opened the game up to an entirely new playing field. This is no longer Shaun Emery versus Detective Inspector Rachel Carey, there’s a much greater power pulling the strings behind-the-scenes: Frank. Who Frank might be is still foggy, but you can bet someone we know is all too familiar with the American.
We have some answers, but we have far more questions after episode three.
Who killed Hannah Roberts?
The disappearance of Hannah (played by Laura Haddock) is now the murder of Hannah after tonight’s episode closed with her lifeless body looking out at Shaun (Callum Turner) from his pal Mat Forester’s (Tommy McDonnell) car boot.
But could Mat really have killed Hannah? So far, Shaun’s best friend has been, to put it lightly, a bit of a drip. The barrister’s death is part of a bigger picture – that we know for sure – and all of this seems way out of Mat’s reach.
However, who else had access to the boot? With that in mind…
Has Mat Forester been playing us all for a fool?
Mat still has all his fingers and was conveniently waiting outside Hannah’s flat, by Shaun’s request, when Shaun was first kidnapped. While we’ve learned about ‘the wipe’, possibly explaining the corrupt CCTV footage which got us here in the first place, that doesn’t explain how guards managed to pull Mat’s digits off one by one.
Then then there’s the body and the admission Mat turned Shaun over to police.
From the get-go it was obvious we couldn’t trust anyone and Mat may have proved us right.
What is DSU Gemma Garland’s motive?
Gemma Garland (Lia Williams)may be leading this case but she’s doing everything in her power to sabotage Rachel’s progress. But why? From episode one we’ve known Rachel (Holliday Granger) is being used as a pawn but perhaps she came closer to the truth than anyone expected.
While Gemma isn’t exactly being subtle when she throws obstacle after obstacle to Rachel we’re not really any closer to realising why.
How is Danny Hart involved?
Rachel’s lover Danny Hart (Ben Mills) has been trying to deter her from discovering that CCTV footage can effectively be manipulated to provide whatever evidence is needed and now we know why: Danny was behind the capture of four suspected terrorists and subsequently hailed a hero. Only, he’s known how the tape incriminating Shaun has been a farce this entire time.
But what does he want with Shaun?
Will Rachel save Shaun?
Tonight Rachel finally answered the mystery behind the CCTV footage which has literally been giving us a head ache since The Capture’s premiere, and it appears the detective may be about to switch teams.
There was always more to this picture; Shaun was so genuinely adamant he had nothing to do with Hannah’s disappearance it didn’t take too long before Rachel doubted everything she knew. And then those doubts became real tonight and suddenly she realised the cat has been chasing the wrong mouse.
After putting Shaun behind bars will Rachel be the one to clear his name?
The Capture continues next Tuesday at 9pm on BBC One.
