Snowfall, BBC2, 11pm

WHAT has happened to Franklin after his arrest in the previous episode? That’s the most pressing question heading into tonight’s season two finale, which is directed by Boyz n the Hood’s John Singleton. It becomes clear that the daily routine in the jail is brutal, with guards refusing to show the detainees any sympathy and the other prisoners not exactly welcoming Franklin. At home he was king, but in the clink he’s a nobody. He is desperate to get out and both Jerome and his lawyer initially don’t think raising bail will be a problem. But will he live long enough to see his plans come to fruition? On the outside, Teddy pulls out all the stops to assist his partners, and Lucia makes a massive sacrifice to save Gustavo’s life.
