The penultimate episode of the Bodyguard left viewers reeling for more after some of the series’ biggest questions began to be answered.

In Sunday night’s episode of the BBC One drama, the aftermath unravelled of Home Secretary Julia Montague’s shock death as police pieced together clues of the puzzle of the BBC drama.

It uncovered that Julia was having secret meetings with the Secret Service about the Prime Minister’s sordid past; revealing he’d been accused of sexual assault, battled drug addiction and had committed financial misconduct at an old firm.

Police discovered the bomb that killed Julia had not been in the suitcase after all but planted underneath the stage and a whole hour of CCTV footage of before the attack had mysteriously gone missing.

Budd realised he and his family were being closely watched by the Secret Service, and the episode ended with him being placed on indefinite leave and his weapons confiscated – leaving him vulnerable to whoever was behind the bomb. 

The BBC One series has achieved consolidated viewing figures of 10.4 million for its first episode.
