I must have not been concentrating last week, but how did Laure know the activists were getting a pass card from Police HQ?

I don't think she did. I was confused when she mentioned the badge but I think she just meant the badge on the guy's jacket from the video.

A bit of back story for Josephine Karlsson tonight. I liked it when she was just a nasty piece of work who'd do anything for her own advancement - now it seems she's got a screwed-up family history with hints of abuse and huge unresolved issues.

Much prefer Gregory Fitoussi in Spiral to his role in Mr. Selfridge!

Really enjoying watching this series, so glad it's back.

Aah, you might be right, but she did seem to know they were heading for the HQ before they actually got there?

I thought because they had a tracker on her car?

Perhaps there was something lost in the subtitling then, because I don't recall a line saying "hey - they must be going to police HQ" before they split up with Amina saying "We're going straight to the HQ" (or words to that effect!)

edit: sod it, I'll just have to watch it all again! (esp "Audrey's scene with Gregory" - do PVRs get worn out if you play the same scene over and over )

I'm pretty sure they did mention the HQ before then, Riffaut's car had passed the town hall, so they figured he was headed for police HQ.

So, can we assume the HQ is at the end of a cul-de-sac?

I think a rewatch of the episode would clear up any queries.

This is the first season of Spiral I've watched so don't know anything of any other seasons. I also have only watched the first 2 episodes of this season as I'm recording it.

Could anybody shed any light on this - when Gregory Fitoussi goes to see Jorkal in the prison, the latter mentions something about not describing a man who goes to the aid of a troubled child as a paedophile, and he seemed to be referring to the lawyer himself, who seemed a bit narked by the comparison.

What was being referred to ?

Jorkal is referring to something that happened in the previous series, I'll spoiler tag it just in case.

Do France not have an equivalent to the UK PACE (Police and Criminal Evidence) Act?

PACE was brought in as our cops could not be trusted. Seems like France is still in the 1970s (a la Life on Mars).

It adds to the drama though. Nice to see a bit of rule breaking left right and centre. Reminds me of The Sweeney.

Thank you, horsesvcats for answering my question .

That's quite an accusation ... I wish I'd watched previous seasons now.

OK, I've rewatched it and Laure says "they must be heading for Cergy station" (which I thought was a train/metro station) but presumably is the Police HQ. And Laure does indeed note that "he's got the badge", referring to the jacket rather than the pass key...

I think Laure worked out that they had a pass/badge when they opened the gates with it to get out of HQ. She is just a smart cookie, quick on the uptake, unlike me who had to ask my o/h how she knew they had a pass.

Gosh I might be the only one here but having watched all three previous seasons and really enjoyed them Im struggling with this one. It seems a bit all over the place..Also most of the cast members look like they need a good rest and a soak in the bath. Does no one buy clothes in any colour other than dark blue grey or black with the exception of Ms Karllson who is the only one who has any colour.

not sure. She makes the statement when she sees the driver on the CCTV, while they're still in the car park (I think)?

Well that's answered a question of mine, I couldn't work out who it was that had been shot.

Tintin is the only one that keeps Laure and Gilou even remotely on the straight and narrow, if he dies they'll go off at the deep end.

As for Gilou he has two cases to answer to the IGS about

1) Associating with known criminals

2) Threatening a fellow officer (Pujade)

I assume when a character mentioned Special Branch they meant the DCRI

Actually when Sophie went to the cop shop I fully expected her to turn out to be working for the DCRI

but she states "it's him - he's got THE badge", not "a badge" (while his shoulder badge is in view) and later, she says to the boss "there's no proof, but I saw the badge on his arm"...
