I refuse to believe that Jed Mercurio had it planned like this since S1 - Dot and his 4 taps seems 'lame' to me, as if the ending to S5 was rewritten to flow into a S6. Who cares though, still the best drama on the telly.

yeah I had it in my head that this would be the last one. So if some shitey code keeps it going for another season then it’s fine by me Laugh

This is the problem with shows like this announcing in advance that they’ve been renewed for another series Laugh


Spoiler :
Might have missed something but not sure the Lisa storyline makes sense. They threw in her getting disillusioned with the OCG to make it seem like she was undercover, so they had to go through with her turning away from crime, but what info did she actually reveal to get immunity?

She lied about Miroslav killing John so didn’t give Ryan away, said that everyone was dead so didn’t give up anyone else, didn’t reveal who H/their contact was, and their stash from the heist had been found before she was questioned.

Surely she’d need to give them more info than pointing the blame at a dead guy for them to give her a new identity etc?

Spoiler :
Also - why did she start trembling etc when she was in front of the biker gang, and ordering Corbett's death? Don't really understand how she got to where she was at the end. Unless, "all will be revealed" next season, and it turns out she was an AC-3 UCO. Lisa-Story, Hastings' laptop and Banks visit just aren't adding up to the story.

Pretty sure she was just conflicted about what she wanted to do with her life. That ambiguity can be perceived as her being undercover so it's a dece red herring.

Yeah I agree with this bit, that held up.

Her wanting to get along with her life isn’t a good enough reason for her to be given immunity though. Unless they’re holding something back for the next series she didn’t seem to actually give any info away in exchange for her release?

I suppose we just have to assume she had the goods on something unconnected. Its a wide ranging criminal organisation, and she's been in it for years. There's more to it than the Eastern European goon.

Did the wrap up no allude to something like that?

I sometimes watch it if the ex-player has a bit of personality or the like, but much as I like Martin Compston, they two talking all things Tim, isn’t for me.

Rewatching LoD from the start because Mrs Acey's never seen it. The first series is just so good. GodIsGod Funny how big Ted is kind of a bit-part player in it, given how central he becomes. Lennie James' performance is terrific.
