Angela Black viewers convinced they've already solved domestic abuse thriller's twist after just one episode
ANGELA Black viewers think they've figured out one of the harrowing drama's key twists ahead of episode 2.
The brand new drama hit TV screens in the UK just a few days ago, but fans are already confident they’ve got the plot sussed.
Written by Baptiste’s Harry and Jack Williams, the new ITV series focuses on the eponymous Angela (played by a magnetic Joanne Froggat).
On the surface, it looks like Angela’s marriage to Oliver (The Flight Attendant’s Michiel Huisman) is a happy one.
However, the audience soon discovers that beneath the hubby’s charming exterior lies a nasty wife-beater.
In one scene, Angela turns up to work and invents a cover story for her cuts and bruises, pretending her son had whacked her by accident.
Viewers are left wondering where the show will go next, when the protagonist’s bleak situation takes an unexpected turn.
Later in the pub, troubled by Angela’s injuries, a mysterious stranger called Ed (The Hatton Garden Job’s Sam Adewunmi) approaches her with a few questions – this time her excuse is a “drunk idiot”.
It’s not long before viewers find out Ed isn’t just some concerned blow-in but a private investigator, and the plot thickens!
It’s revealed he’s been commissioned by Oliver to unearth his wife’s darkest secrets so he can secure sole custody of their kids in the divorce he’s been plotting behind her back.
Ed later shows up at Angela’s house, claiming Oliver wants her killed, but despite his best attempts at convincing her of his murderous past, she thinks the PI is telling porkies.
Angela certainly wasn’t alone in her distrust of Ed, with viewers soon taking to social media with their own theories about the guy and his disturbing accusations.
Maybe the strangest of these was the suggestion that Ed isn't even real, but an imaginary character that Angela cooked up as a coping mechanism after years of abuse.
“Ed isn’t real. She’s made him up to cope with the trauma,” one watcher wrote. “That’s why he can’t follow the husband”.
Another agreed, penning: “Yep, I’m convinced that this fella doesn’t really exist”.
The details teased in the synopsis for episode two definitely don’t derail the theory either.
“After Ed’s claims about her husband confirm her worst fears, Angela is left reeling and struggles to keep up the facade with Olivier and the boys, while Ed wants her to join forces with him to take action," it reads.
These amateur sleuths may well by spot on, but the only way to find out for sure is by coming back for the next instalment, which airs this Sunday.
