It’s sad, but also true: Strike: The Silkworm episode 2 on September 17 is the end for this iteration of the series. The first episode tonight marks the foundation following the events of the first series The Cuckoo’s Calling, and moving into this next installment we have a chance to get to know some of these characters and stories better in the aftermath of what happened within the first three episodes.
Given that episode 2 is the finale, the one good thing is that there is a sense of urgency that you will see for Strike and Robin given that there’s a killer on the loose, and they may need to visit some unusual places and worlds in order to find them. The journey is going to take these two characters into the literary sphere, and they may find both answers and surprises along the way. Hopefully, whatever they do find at the end of this series sets the foundation for even more down the road. J.K. Rowling has written a number of fantastic stories under the pen name Robert Galbraith, and one of the things that is fantastic about Strike from its very foundation is that this is a series that could last for however long the parties would like for it to. With the Harry Potter series, the characters were eventually going to grow up so it was inevitable over time that you would have to push the show forward. (With this being said, you probably should expect an article over the next couple of weeks about whether or not there should ever be a Harry Potter TV series to accompany some of the movies that are out there.)
Strike: The Silkworm episode 2 synopsis – “Delving deeper into the hidden meanings and concealed secrets of Bombyx Mori, Strike and Robin scour all corners of London’s literary world to unmask the killer.”
This episode will hopefully give you the answers that you seek, especially since it’d be a rather terrible shame if you were to left hanging in any capacity. What we like about it is that there is a deeper mystery here beyond just a murder, since Strike and Robin are going to have to put their minds to the test to uncover clues and do a little bit of puzzle solving. It’s a different sort of mystery than we’re used to seeing, and that is exciting given that we do live in a world at this point where there is such a wide array of crime shows out there already … and many of them do have a tendency to do the same thing time after time.
