In a mere matter of hours from right now, the latest episode of “The Fall” is coming to BBC Two, and we certainly are entering it with some high hopes. Specifically, we imagine that this is going to be a pivotal hour of television when it comes to Stella Gibson determining whether or not she is going to be able to collect the evidence necessarily in order to implicate and convict Paul Spector once and for all. This is the thing that makes him so dangerous: He didn’t always leave the biggest paper trail, at least in comparison to some other TV serial killers that we’ve seen over the years.
The preview below gives you a small sense of what is coming tonight, and what we want to focus on primarily is the role of the media in this case. After all, there does have to be a certain degree of fear that comes along with making it clear to the public precisely who Paul is. That can lead to further questions, but even more terrifyingly it can lead to people trying to help a man who does not need any help … other than maybe being helped into a prison cell at some point.
What will make matters even worse for Gibson is that at some point over the course of this episode, she and Burns are going to be heavily admonished both by the police ombudsman and the policing executive over the way they’ve treated the case.
In general we expect more tremendous performances from Gillian Anderson and Jamie Dornan; we’re clearly building towards something big, so the hope is that it will be a worthy culmination of this journey to date.
