'London Kills' season 2: Will detective David Bradford finally figure out the mystery of his missing wife?
Acorn TV's latest original 'London Kills' premiered with its first season back in February this year and immediately took our breath away as a new beacon of hope for fans of murder mysteries. And now, at the brink of the second season's mid-July premiere, the biggest question that haunts us is what exactly happened to DI David Bradford's wife, Sarah.
The plot of 'London Kills' focuses on a new murder every episode that an elite team of detectives under the leadership of DI Bradford aims at solving. David’s team comprises of ambitious Detective Sergeant Vivienne Cole (Sharon Small) who plays by her own rules, seasoned crime-solver Detective Constable Rob Brady (Bailey Patrick) and inexperienced Trainee Detective Constable Billie Fitzgerald (Tori Allen-Martin).
But surrounding the many murders, a steady mystery also pans out throughout the episodes, revolving around the disappearance of Bradford's wife who is established to be missing right from the point the first season kicks off. At the end of season 1, we were finally able to meet Bradford's daughter, who implies that there must have been some disagreement or an argument that had gone down between Bradford and his wife before she went missing. But the show also indicated that Sharon wasn't dead at the end of season 1.
Which brings us to the same question that plagued viewers throughout the debut season: Where exactly is Sharon, and does Bradford succeed in figuring out the mystery behind her disappearance? Season 1 explored the psychotic workings of the prime antagonist Amber, who went around on a serial killing spree and was also spotted with the same purse that Sharon had on her when she went missing.
Amber died at the end of season 1 while trying to flee from the police as she eventually jumped off from a building, and her death on the spot does ensure that she won't be able to do Sharon any harm following the big reveal about Amber being the killer. But there's also a possibility that Amber wasn't working on her own and had accomplices in the several murders that occurred in season 1, and season 2's spoilers also indicate a whole new string of murders taking place. This confirms that there's a possible accomplice that Amber left behind to carry out her sickening desires, but it could also mean that this new killer would track down Sharon and harm her, now that Amber is dead because of the police.
All of this is just speculation and there has been no update on the Bradford-Sharon aspect, with regards to whether he is able to solve the mystery behind his missing wife. For all we know, Sharon is just hiding away somewhere, keeping her distance from her husband, considering their relationship was rocky at the time of her disappearance. Let's just keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best.
'London Kills' premieres on July 15, only on Acorn TV.
