*Warning contains spoilers for Vigil episode 4*
Sunday night’s fourth episode of Vigil packed plenty of drama into its final few minutes, much to fans’ delight, as DCI Amy Silva (Suranne Jones) stumbled across a dead body before being charged at by a mysterious assailant.
After 60 minutes that took in a dramatic drill, further drug intrigue, a Russian spy and HMS Vigil being called back to port, interrupting its patrol as part of the UK’s nuclear deterrent, this week’s twists and turns led to the boat’s chef, Petty Officer Jackie Hamilton.
However, shortly after calling Hamilton to the control room for questioning as a suspect in Craig Burke’s (Martin Compston) murder, following her son’s questionably quick release from a drugs sentence at an Indonesian prison, Silva stumbled upon the chef lying dead.
She then looked up to see a figure wearing a gas mask running at her – suggested to be Coxswain Glover, who is also under suspicion – and tackling her to the ground.
‘How am i supposed to wait a whole week with that ending,’ tweeted one viewer, while another wrote: ‘That was a line of duty-esque cliffhanger.’
Another declared: ‘I am not and will never be over that episode or #vigil like wow just wow.’
Others flocked to comment on the cliffhanger ending.
‘Talk about cliffhanger!’, a third posted.
Another tweeted: ‘Absolutely loved that episode, don’t want to have to wait a week.’
Viewers also praised Suranne Jones’ performance, with one labelling it ‘incredible’ as another put: ‘@SuranneJonesUK how can you leave us hanging like that?’
Another part of Monday’s episode that earned praise from viewers was the kiss between Silva and her partner Kirsten Longacre (Rose Leslie), in a flashback to the beginning of their relationship.
With Longacre having already made a move in an earlier flashback, shortly after they first met, Silva returned the favour as she admitted: ‘I like you.’
‘Omg omg omg we got a kiss! I repeat we got A KISS,’ wrote one excited fan, before declaring: ‘The gay gods are upon us!’
Another simply tweeted: ‘I CANT MY SAPPHIC HEART.’
Vigil continues next Monday at 9pm on BBC One.
