Taking to Twitter, viewers were quick to discuss the episode, with one writing: "Fuming with #OurGirl terrible acting and rubbish story. I'm so disappointed," while another added: "What the hell is this? #OurGirl has seriously gone downhill. No direct storyline. So disappointing." Fans were also unhappy that Georgie has a new love interest, instead of Elvis, who only made an appearance later in the episode. One person tweeted: "Elvis suddenly showing up has saved this series #OurGirl," while another added: "'#bringbackelvis... Been looking forward to Our Girl coming back on and Elvis isn't even in it." However, others enjoyed the episode, with one person tweeting: "Michelle and cast was fantastic tonight in Our Girl. Keep up the good work Michelle," while another added: "He loves #Georgie, no wonder! Perfect acting #LukePasqualino! Our hearts belongs to Elvis."

The episode drew criticism from viewers

Michelle recently opened up about the challenges of filming the new series on Radio 1. She said: "I wasn't 100 per cent there would be another series but I signed the option for there to be another. Obviously the first time it was for five episodes but this time it was for 12 so it's overly doubled. I didn't know that at the time either. It's been a long, long filming schedule. I was away for three months last time and this time I was in South Africa for three months and then I had three weeks off then I was in Malaysia for three months. So over all I was away for seven months. It was a long time being away from home. I had to do it, the contract was signed. Book me a flight!"
