Ashes to Ashes Series 2 Finale Preview

Ashes to Ashes Series 2 Finale

Ashes to Ashes Series 2 reaches its thrilling conclusion on Monday evening – and with rumours that there will be no series 3, it could be the end of everything in the world of Gene Hunt, Ray Carling and Chris Skelton.

Will we learn the truth? Will it finally be revealed just where Alex Drake – and possibly Sam Tyler before her – found themselves after their accidents?

In the meantime, there’s a heist on the go in the season finale, with some corrupt cops planning to jump in and hijack the Gold Bullion for themselves.

Seeing this as his chance to cut the throat of the corruption that is sucking the life out of the Metropolitan Police, DCI Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) identifies this as the moment to strike and make a difference.

Interestingly just as it looks as though CID have got their chance, Hunt finds his head turned by the attractive Jenette, who is surely involved in one of the bullion plots.

It’s Alex Drake (Keeley Hawes) who is likely to be more in danger however. Following the matter-of-fact comings and goings of the older Martin Summers and his apparently insane and illogical act last week, Alex is desperate to return home. She’s hearing more and more from 2008 and truly believes her time in the 1980s is up.

Which expressed as odd behaviour leaves DCI Gene Hunt in a difficult position – can he trust DI Alex Drake?

Ashes to Ashes Series 2 Episode 8 is the conclusion to the 2009 series of the Life on Mars spinoff. and potentially the end of the show and Gene Hunt.

Don’t miss it!
