While the media continues to slam the Beeb for their decision to cancel Ripper Street and the search continues for replacement funding, Series 2 comes to an end tonight in the UK with an episode that will surely be filled with rainbows and ponies. Enjoy.
Episode 02-08 (UK Airdate: December 16, 2013):
“Our Betrayal, Part 2″
Death and violence stalk Whitechapel once more.
Decayed and murdered corpses are found in a slum tenement, and the advanced stages of the police divisional boxing championship — the Lafone Cup — reveal the vengeful ferocity to be found within the ranks of the force itself.
As Reid and Drake find themselves powerless to resist the awful temptation of a final reckoning with K Division’s Jedediah Shine, so Jackson and Judge’s ever more desperate attempts to profit from that stolen diamond lead them into the teeth of the murderous agents of the De Graal monopoly.
And Long Susan must decide where her future lies — with Jackson, or allied to the venal but powerful Duggan.
