Broadchurch: Episode 6

This week Alec Hardy underwent surgery for his heart condition, finally, and for about a minute I actually thought he was about to bite the dust… seriously people?! Why do you do this to my heart?! And how cool is that that Tess is taking care of Hardy, with him asking her for them to be a family again and everything… poor guy! And this was the wife who cheated on him during his previous case and cost them the conviction.

Tom Miller takes the stand and downright lies, accusing Mark of confessing to murder Danny. After a while though he admits that Mark only felt guilty… But Ellie (my hero) is having none of it, she’s really mad at her son for what he’s putting the Latimer’s through and orders him to go home with her (Because she’s his bloody mother!)… “Yes mom” is all he’s able to say. Finally!!! The whole thing of Tom being angry at his mom for what his father did was getting weird and old.

The case against Joe Miller seems about to crumble when Bishop asks for the dismissal of the case based on the abuse of power of the police, because Mark Latimer went to see Joe in jail when he was first arrested… ohoh… luckily Jocelyn is able to prove that there was no abuse of power and the case still holds.

Speaking of Jocelyn, she finally came clean with her young helper about her condition, she’s going blind. To top it off, she got a call telling her that her mother fall over and passed away… by the way, are we all convinced by now that she and Maggie are or used to be an item, right?

In the Sandbrook front we learn quite a lot, mainly that Claire is looking guiltier by the minute. Not only is she wearing Pippa’s necklace in one of her portfolio photos, but it’s revealed that she was actually the one who broke into Tess’s car and stole the evidence… why?! She and Lee clearly have or had some kind of plan, but when they look for a house together with a setting very similar to the one in Sandbrook, they state that they can’t do it… do what?!

I have SO many questions!!!

I had two favorite moments: Beth finally letting Ellie console her and Ellie yelling at her son… priceless! Oh, and Abby Thompson letting Olly know that she desperately needs to have sex, it has nothing to do with him… pity that she then found something in his house that can help Joe’s case…

**********   EDIT – ALEC HARDY AND THE PENDENT  **********

As you can see in the screencap (and read on the comments below), Alec Hardy is seen wearing Pippa’s pendent.

As this is part of some sort of fantasy/nightmare he has during his anestesia, I don’t believe that he ever actually had it with him… I believe it represents something that weights on him, like the fact that he found Pippa’s body in the water, so he feels like he’s drowning. It was however very subtly done, and if there had been no comments about it, I would have missed it, so thank you :).

Broadchurch returns (and wow, just WOW!)

Broadchurch second season began last week and wow, it was spectacular! After an amazing first season (and a not so amazing Gracepoint), I was worried that the season two premiere would feel flat, but it was far from it. Warning… SPOILERS ahead…

Broadchurch-season-2

The story picks up a few months after the events of the first season, with the Latimer’s coping and the town moving forward. With Miller out of town and her son Tom not wanting to see her and with Hardy (in a house finally), out of duty, but still somehow working. And then the bomb drops: Joe Miller pleads “not guilty” and his case goes to trial, driving everyone to despair.

Meanwhile, while we try to understand if Joe is actually innocent or just don’t want to go to jail, we learn that Hardy has been protecting a key witness in the Sandbrook case, meet the defense and the prosecution on Joe Miller’s case and the main suspect in the Sandbrook case.

Can’t wait for the next episode!!!
