Shetland on the BBC: What happened in the finale?

In the finale, the mystery behind Marie-Ann Ross was finally solved – she died some 20 years ago at a drug-fuelled party attended to by Alex Galbraith, Darren Bedford and Niven Guthrie.

After she became ill and died in her sleep, Galbraith and Guthrie buried her body on the moor.

However, two decades on, Galbraith was intent on spilling the beans as to what happened.

This was too much of a risk for his wife, Eve, to take, and she was the one who shot him in order to save her political career.

What’s going to happen to Jimmy and Duncan?

But there was more drama, when it was revealed Donna Killick had written to her lawyer telling him that Duncan had been threatening to poison her.

And, furthermore, that Jimmy Perez was going to cover things up and let his pal walk free.

Donna Killick got her revenge from beyond the grave.

By the end of the episode, Duncan was sitting in a jail cell and Jimmy was arrested.

And with the news that viewers would have to wait until 2022 to find out what happens to them both, they were up in arms.

How did viewers react to the cliffhanger?

Soon viewers took to Twitter to express their exasperation at having to wait until next year to find out what happens to Jimmy and Duncan.

One lamented: “#OMG @BBCOne #Shetland… you can’t do this to me… make me wait until next year to see @djhenshall (aka Jimmy Perez) be questioned over the death of Donna K!

“That was a fantastic series, I loved every minute of it, thank you. That Donna Killick is pure evil. Perez is innocent!! #Shetland.”

A third said: “OMG just watched #Shetland finale. Really don’t think I can wait until next year.”
