Utterly jaw dropping!!!!
18 February 2017 | by stevenjlowe82See all my reviews

Wow, just wow!!!! My guts were twisted during this entire episode more or less. I spent the most part being utterly confused as to why the kid got himself into such a state over his actions, that was until the earth shattering reveal at the end. This is honestly top notch TV st it's very best. I am still shaking after the fact, think this one is going to stay with me for a while. Bravo to all involved.
