Looking forward to next week," while another added: "Just watched the first episode of #TriggerPoint and oh my god what an amazing first episode! @Vicky_McClure is absolutely insane.

Vicky McClure stars in the drama

Vicky McClure, who stars as Lana in the series, took to Twitter to check in on fans after the explosive ending. She wrote: "How we doing?! (Even I jumped!!)."

While most viewers commented on the episode's shock ending, some were disappointed by the frequent ad breaks during the drama. One person tweeted: "Watching a show like this with ad breaks is NOT IT #TriggerPoint," while another added: "Another ad break. Guess the writers have exactly four cliffhangers lined up per episode. #TriggerPoint."
