Returning to work, he has no recollection of his last job which went terribly wrong as a result of a bullet lodged in his brain which killed his partner.

The overall plot of this episode was praised by The Telegraph while the acting was felt to be too restrained.[5] Reviews for the final episode were much more positive. The underlying themes received particular praise.[6] Other reviews noted it to be flamboyant in an almost theatrical sense, but ultimately praised the series.[7] The Telegraph continued to negatively review the series, claiming the final episode was too unbelievable to be viewed with sincerity.[8] Many other critics slammed the show and drew attention to the serious weaknesses in the writing.
