Warning: This article contains spoilers for the most recent episode of The Bridge that aired on BBC Two.

BBC Two aired the penultimate episode of everyone's favourite depressing Scandinavian crime drama The Bridge last night (June 22) and with one episode left, viewers are dreading the end - not just because a great series is coming to an end, but because it's likely not everyone will survive.

But let's have some happy news first, we got the resolution to last week's cliffhanger: Henrik was shot but didn't die. Yay.

And that's all the happy stuff in the episode. Sandra, the wife of mechanic Moyo, was killed in a hanging, and Lillian receives the decomposing head of Hans in a flower delivery.

As grim as that all sounds, viewers are prepared for much worse next week:























If Saga dies next week then don't feel too sad, because she was originally meant to die in season one.

Writer and creator Hans Rosenfeldt recently revealed that: "Yes, in the very early drafts, Saga died in episode 9 – she was stabbed." So technically she has been on borrowed time for three seasons.

Rosenfeldt also explained why the show is ending now, stating: "There are very few series that actually creatively peak at series five, six and seven. They tend to go the other way."

The Bridge concludes next Friday (June 29) at 9pm on BBC Two. Thankfully they've not spoiled anything in a trailer this time.
