SPOILER ALERT!! – Animal rights activists have threatened a series of attacks in London and the first victim – the daughter of a commercial laboratory owner – is in hospital. Gene Hunt (Philip Glenister) orders his team not to sleep until those responsible are behind bars. Their first stop is a prison where Robin Elliot (David Bradley), a known animal rights activist, is serving time for killing a scientist in the 70’s. Alex (Keeley Hawes) is convinced Robin knows about the planned attacks, but with no contact with the outside world, there doesn’t appear to be any way for him to be involved. Robin’s eerily prescient knowledge of the future makes Alex think he could be involved not only with the case, but also with her own fate. Having heard the voices of ambulance men, Alex worries that hope is fading for her survival in the present day. Gene skirts closely towards a dangerous conflict with Supermac (Roger Allam), who warns him to toe the line or face the consequences. As Alex fights for her life and Gene fights for his career, can they prevent more casualties before time runs out? Episode three airs Tuesday, May 25th @ 10:00 p.m. EST/PST on BBC America.
