Following today’s premiere, do you want some scoop on Death in Paradise season 8 episode 2? Rest assured, it’ll be here before you know it! The second episode of the BBC One drama series is coming in one week’s time and it’s certainly going to have a fascinating setting: The local zoo.
What happened here? Well, given the show’s title, it shouldn’t exactly be a surprise that there is a murder. (Go ahead and insert your joke about how there’s nobody really alive in paradise anymore.) How that comes about, though, is a big mystery and something that we’re excited to see the episode explore a little bit further.
Below, CarterMatt has the official Death in Paradise season 8 episode 2 synopsis with some more information as to what’s ahead:
DI Jack Mooney (Ardal O’Hanlon) and the team enter a nest of vipers when zoo owner Xander Shepherd (Jonathan Kerrigan) is poisoned by a tranquiliser dart in the middle of the zoo grounds, leaving the family-run business in turmoil.
With the zoo shut to the public at 5pm, and Xander’s family and co-workers the only other people on the premises at the time of the murder, suspicion falls upon Xander’s fellow colleagues. However, as all of the suspects were together in the staff area when the crime was committed, and with a clear view of the grounds, how could any of them have killed Xander?
Meanwhile, the arrival of new police officer Ruby Patterson (Shyko Amos), who happens to also be the Commissioner’s niece, keeps Jack and the team on their toes, as the Commissioner (Don Warrington) keeps a watchful eye on her progress.
Elsewhere Jack faces a mammoth task when he is signed up to the island’s charity swim race, and Florence (Josephine Jobert) seeks relationship advice. JP (Tobi Bakare) takes on the responsibility of mentoring Ruby (Shyko Amos) whilst Ruby makes an interesting discovery when surveying boats at the marina.
We feel like if you’ve watched Death in Paradise with regularity over the years, you’ve got a pretty good idea at this point of what the series is bringing to the table. They’re going to find a way to continue to bring you great mysteries every week, but there is still something a little bit more personal in every episode. The show is combining about mixing all of these elements and providing you, in the end, with something that is well-balanced and addictive. Once you watch an episode or two of this show, how can you not go ahead and watch more of them?
