Death In Paradise Season 7 Episode 7 (BBC-1 15 Feb 2018)
In the penultimate episode of the season, long-buried memories are dug up for JP when someone from his past is caught red-handed at a murder scene, and DI Mooney must unravel a complex mystery to find the truth.
When a disturbance is reported, JP and Dwayne are the first on the scene where they discover Eugene Jones dead on the floor with a fatal wound to the head. Interrupting the apparent assailant upon entering the house, JP and Dwayne make chase in a bid to capture the suspect with JP trying his best to tackle them on their escape. Unable to catch the perpetrator, the team are at a loss until JP announces that he knows exactly who the suspect is; his old classmate Cordell Thomas.
Before the team have a chance to regroup the next morning, Jack and Florence are stunned to find Cordell on the doorstep of the police station, ready to confess to Eugene’s murder. However Jack is troubled by the discovery of a peanut found in the clutches of the victim‘s hand at the crime scene and is convinced that Cordell isn’t telling the whole truth. With everything pointing towards a robbery gone wrong and Cordell in the cell, how could any evidence prove otherwise?
Meanwhile, Jack tries his hand at night fishing and JP struggles to overcome his past conflict with Cordell. Elsewhere, an unexpected visitor turns up on Darlene’s doorstep looking for Dwayne.
