At the end of episode one, viewers watched as DI Ray was suddenly hit over the head by a mystery attacker after meeting the victim's missing girlfriend, Anjuli, in a playground at night.

In the opening moments of episode two, the DI awakes from an unconscious state to find PS Tony Khatri rushing to her aid as blue police lights flash in the background. Tony tells his fellow police officers to stay back from the scene as Rachita composes herself and insists on getting straight back on the case. 

Viewers took to Twitter following the first scene to point out that DI Ray would have been checked over before getting back to work, with one person writing: "#DIRay if she was unconscious she should definitely be checked over!" while another added: "#DIRay of course she won't rest after a smack on the head."

A third viewer commented: "I thought this was good, but not great to start to ep two. I have no doubt they'd have sent an ambulance and paramedics if an officer had been knocked down," while another pointed out that PS Tony was walking all over the crime scene: "Police officer at scene of crime yells 'BACK!' at two other officers, while walking all over the scene of crime on the phone to forensics."
