Liar fans just couldn’t cope with the DOUBLE TWIST in last night’s episode

This article contains spoilers. And some outrage.

Last night’s penultimate episode of hit ITV drama, Liar, certainly had quite the reaction from its viewers as not one, but two, shocking twists took fans down yet another unexpected route.

First, a quick bit of background – just in case you’re not familiar with the show that has everyone talking. So, it’s centred around Laura (Joanne Froggatt) who goes on a date with handsome surgeon, Andrew (Ioan Gruffud).

They have a nice time and a bit of a kiss and then Andrew realises his phone battery has run out. Laura invites him up to her flat to call a cab and charge his phone.

She opens a bottle of wine for them while he waits for the cab…

The next thing she knows, it’s the morning and she wakes up on her bed, fully-clothed apart from her knickers, and realises she’s been raped. She calls the police.

Andrew vehemently denies the charges, saying they had consensual sex. Laura has no evidence and the Crown Prosecution Service decide they don’t have anything to charge him with.

In last night’s ep, a frustrated Laura decided to take the law into her own hands and managed to drug Andrew and drag him to a deserted boat yard.

Her plan was to get him to confess to his crime. Well, crimes actually, as it turned out Andrew has a bit of a thing about raping women, filming it and keeping the memory cards, along with his drugs, in his mum’s shed. Yep, he’s even more evil than we first realised.

Anyway, Laura managed to drag the unconscious Andrew off and tie him up. Only she probably needs to practice her knots as the slippery surgeon managed to get free and tell her: “Run.”


It looked like things were about to get even more unpleasant for Laura when DI Harmon (who Andrew also raped last week) arrived at the scene, having placed a tracker on his car.

Everyone got very excited as it looked like Andrew was finally going to get arrested, when he laughed: “You can’t arrest me right now with GHB in my system, detective Harmon knows that, don’t you? So I’m going to walk away.”

Vanessa replied: “He’s right, if we make an arrest now they’ll turn this place over and you’ll be the one in trouble.” WHAAAAAT?

And with that, he walked away. Fans were livid, but there’s still one episode left guys, that’s a whole hour for him to finally slip up and get caught!

Viewers took to Twitter to share their shock, fury and outrage over the latest ep and its twists and turns, as well as praising ITV and the actors.

Not everyone was loving the new turn the drama took though as it got a bit Hollywood horror movie. These guys were pretty much in the minority though.
