Please... Is Julien Baptiste alive?!
We’re not quite sure what we’re going to do with our Wednesday nights now that The Missing has come to an end.
But we can rest assured that yesterday’s finale was an absolute CRACKER. An emotional, nail-biting, terrifying cracker, that is.
Let’s recap. Ex-detective Julien Baptiste headed to Switzerland to hunt down abductor Adam Getterick, alongside Alice Webster’s parents Gemma and Sam.
A flashback to 2014 then revealed that Alice had been held captive in Getterick’s basement with Sophie Giroux and Lena Garber.
When Sophie fell dangerously ill, he asked Brigadier Adrian Stone and Army medic Henry Reed for help, blackmailing them with their shared history in Iraq.
But this plan fell through (and Reed ended up dead), so Getterick sent Sophie to the German town of Eckhausen for treatment – and made her pose as Alice.
Cut to 2016 and the trio came within yards of Getterick’s cabin in the woods. He obviously wasn’t thrilled about this, so he shot Sam in the chest. NOOO.
The Swiss police then arrived to free Alice, meaning she was reunited with her father before he passed away. Has anyone got a tissue?
Of course, viewers were completely hooked on the action, with Tweets including: ‘#TheMissing without doubt was the best show of 2016 @BBCOne thank you for keeping the nation on edge for the past 8 weeks 😘👨👩👧👦👨👧,’ and: ‘#TheMissing so Alice is kidnapped and locked in a basement for 13 years and is fine and I’m here after 8 episodes balling my EYES out [sic].’
But not everything was wrapped up as neatly as Alice’s reappearance – and some fans had a lot of questions.
One wrote: ‘My only question is, who was the guy that baptise kept imagining was following him? #TheMissing,’ while another pondered: ‘WOAH #TheMissing so question is..DID Adrian stone actually have dementia or not?’
Here are some others…
And the big one…
We’ve got our fingers crossed for a third series!
