ok, I've just heard part 2 and i'm freaking out. my first fan theory I've posted and it's about 95% accurate. here's what I got right and wrong. be warned though, this does include MAJOR spoliers and plot details from part 2. so remember, you have been warned.
by the way, I think the writer's have read PennyBasett's fanfiction when writing this 3 parter. there's a few blank spaces she filled that have matched up with this episode. i.e Monty Whitaker has followed skint to odyssey so he can arrest him (yes, he's partly teamed up with Jason) as a side note, skint thinks the antique shop is just a 'front' for Jason's 'police work".
also, I defintenly think this is skint's last episode, as his actor is sounding a lot older and a bit frail, I think he might be struggling a tiny bit to get his lines out.

ok, so the final part was slightly intense.
And that's the long end. I love how Buck, Eugene, Katrina, Jason and Monty caught skint by conning him into thinking he got away with everything so easily, I also liked how skint genuinely cared about buck, but his greed would always come out in the end. this is definitely an episode to listen to and I think there's definitely potential for fanfiction here. PennyBassett, I think I can hear you getting some ideas. just thought I'd mention as this is a Meltsner family episode, but when writing this I had Eugene at the top of the page, and Katrina was there when I previewed it.
