“It’s another interesting element, she makes her mind up one day then changes it the next,” Jane said, according to Digital Spy. “In the scenes with the gunman on the street, you see a real shift in how she feels about it all.

“She thinks this will never end unless she stops it now. She is terrified and trying to do her best.”

Jane added: “That’s a lightbulb moment. She’s already lost a child and been through the worst thing that is ever going to happen so what could be worse than that?”
