'We Hunt Together' Epsiode 5: How will Freddy and Baba escape from police after killing the headmaster?
Spoilers for 'We Hunt Together' 'Episode 5'
What an eye-opener that was! Trust the writers of 'We Hunt Together' to tease with equal amounts of duplicitousness from both Freddy (Hermione Corfield), and her latest target, her former headmaster, Cian Fitzgerald, who consistently denied having wronged the real Freddy in the past. Freddy, or Lilly, whatever you wish to call her, still killed her headmaster, after trying to confront him next to the very lake where she claimed the original Freddy had died.
Freddy's accusations were busted as a schoolgirl fantasy, as recurrent flashbacks in the narrative showed her getting exceedingly jealous of the real Freddy getting more attention from the headmaster, and out of the same, she pushed her friend into the lake, causing her death. Its possible Freddy told herself an alternate reality growing up to cope with the guilt of having killed her best friend, but that's not what concerns us now. With the police hovering above them, how will Freddy and Baba (Dipo Ola) escape?
The answer, like most of Freddy's solutions, is murder of course. Upon hearing guard dogs barking nearby, Freddy and Baba made a run for her old acquaintance, Johnny's cabin. Freddy weaved another elaborate story about being stranded in the woods for three days and requesting him to lend her his truck to get home. After much hesitation, Johnny caved, and right as Freddy got inside with Baba sneaking into the backseat. She was stopped.
No, it's not the police, it's Johnny of course. The main held a shotgun pointed at Freddy sat in the driver's seat and asked her to stop. But there's no other way out than Freddy practically driving over this man, something we believe is exactly what's going to happen.
DI Jackson Fendy (Babou Ceesay) and DS Lola Franks (Eve Myles) are already in the vicinity; the duo even managed to pull Fitzgerald's body out of the lake where Freddy had pushed him into. They know Freddy did it as Baba pointed out that nobody commits suicide with their hands tied behind their wheelchair. Moreover, when Lola had called Cian to warn him about Freddy, he never received the call.
Lola had guessed it was Freddy on the other end of the phone and hence headed this way. Sadly, they couldn't save another possibly innocent man from Freddy's murderous instincts. Neither will they most likely be able to save Johnny if he doesn't get out of the way of Freddy's escape.
