Death in Paradise spoilers
In the last episode of the series, When Billy Springer, lead guitarist of a popular reggae band, is murdered, DI Mooney and his team must crack a cold case that has haunted the Commissioner for years, before they can arrest the killer.
After performing on stage as part of Leon And The Ragers 30-year reunion gig, Billy is found dead moments later in his dressing room.
With a gun in his hand and the door locked from the inside, all evidence points towards suicide. However the Commissioner received a message from Billy earlier that day saying that he had found evidence linked to his wife’s murder – the case that the Commissioner was unable to solve 30 years earlier. Why would Billy kill himself when he had just unearthed proof leading to his wife’s killer? And why is Jack so obsessed with a fork found at the scene of the crime?
Convinced that Billy was killed to conceal his wife’s murderer, suspicion soon falls upon Billy’s fellow band-mates and his son, Kai. With each of them denying the allegations and Billy’s room being locked from the inside, how could any of them committed the crime?
Meanwhile, Jack finds himself once more sharing his shack with a member of the Myers family. But while the team try to help Dwayne come to terms with his dad’s surprise visit to Saint Marie, is it too late for father and son to make amends?
Death in Paradise airs tonight at 9PM on BBC One.
