Contains spoilers for The Capture.

If you've managed to make it to episode six of The Capture, congratulations, you clearly have a strong attention span and nerves of steel because at times it's been frankly very confusing and extremely tense.

That said, the series has been a gripping watch, and we can't wait to see what's in store during the finale tonight (8 October).

Last week's episode threw up the revelation that Shaun Emery (Callum Turner)'s lawyer, Charlie (Barry Ward), and a team framed him for the abduction of Hannah Roberts (Laura Haddock) in the name of highlighting to the world the issue of 'correction' being used to create false evidence given in court. We also discovered that Frank (Ron Perlman)'s team eventually killed Hannah in an attempt to keep the process of correction a secret.

With just the finale to go, there are loose ends to be tied up and lots of questions to be answered - namely, who can we actually trust?

To make that more confusing, there's a new character being added to the mix.

Jessica Mallory, played by Famke Janssen, will feature in episode six to "put Frank in his place."

Speaking about her character, Famke said:

"Jessica's very high up in her line of work, and she's the boss of Frank Napier. She comes in towards the end of the series, seemingly to put him in his place and have him clean up his operation, but there appear to be other larger things at stake.

"Jessica’s a businesswoman, somebody who has gotten her way for a long time. She's worked very hard, especially as a woman, to get to the position that she’s in. She's no-nonsense on a lot of levels, just making sure the job gets done - however it needs to get done.

She enters the series in a very glamorous way, which was really fun to film. As I say, her way into the story is really through Ron's character and she has no connections directly with Shaun Emery and Rachel Carey, though of course everybody is indirectly connected," she explained.

We'll find out more about Jessica when The Capture concludes tonight at 9pm on BBC One.
