Cormoran strike back with a new series
Strike Lethal White- the most awaited series aired their first episode yesterday on BBC One and Cinemax UK. Cormoran Strike, previously war veteran and now a Special Investigation Branch detective is back with his inimitable insight and intelligence. So far, the show has been a hit and has had encouraging reviews from the viewers. Lethal White is back after 2 years and sustained from the exact ending as shown in the Career of Evil.
Episode 2 of Career Evil left us all in suspense for what’s going to happen next but Lethal white episode 1 started with a pleasing opening. Cormoran Strike making it to Robin’s wedding and re-hiring her as his assistant has been good news for both of them and as I’ve seen in the show, Matthew shouldn’t be chasing Robin as he has cheated on her.
Now, as we hoped for, after getting the news from Strike, Robin leaves her husband at their wedding dance which resulted in him getting upset. She finds it hard to decide between Mathew and Strike as one of them is her husband and she’ll end up upsetting both of them. This just resulted in Robin’s bad mood.
All of a sudden, we’re one year forward from the wedding, and Robin is puzzlingly still with Matthew. More flashbacks to the wedding and the special night are all dabbed through the episode in no specific sequence – and we’re left wondering what precisely happened when Robin hauled her (agonizing) spouse off-screen during the wedding and went up against him about the voice messages.
A troubled young man, Billy approaches Strike’s office seeking his help to investigate a crime he witnessed as a child. Strike starts dwelling into the case with the help of his re-hired associate Robin. Both are set off on a twisting trail that leads them through the backstreets of London, into a secretive hidden part of Parliament.

Be that as it may, the episode’s activity primarily centers on the present-day, which brings clumsiness and quietness among Robin and Strike’s relationship. Down the same lines, she avoided to tell him that she’s experiencing PTSD despite everything which was embraced on by last season’s serial killer, the Shacklewell Ripper.
This episode revolves more around the personal life of Cormoran Strike than the professional, it’s more of a love pyramid rather than a murder mystery.
The case devises on the murder of a young girl in the past that wasn’t solved. We all know Strike is best in what he does and always takes the right decision but this time it’s going to be difficult for him to find the truth behind this case as he is also struggling with his personal life at the same time and needs to figure out his relationship with Robin.
Episode 1 was a straightforward introduction to the new case and a small recap of what all happened in the past. This season is going to be full of surprises for the viewers and this JK Rowling’s Book influenced TV Show will be coming to an end after this season. Let’s hope for the best to happen!
