plot twist: Hardy makes a full and speedy recovery after his pacemaker surgery, then goes on to solve the Sandbrooke case. Also his daughter forgives him. Also he comfort-shags Miller (except lbr the comfort-shagging is totally mutual because her husband definitely did it (okay maybe not definitely but “your own house? how could you not know?” That’s gotta be it, right??? She didn’t know about the paintball trip. What else could have slipped under the radar? She has a stressful job even if they were just on holiday)).
BECAUSE THEN WE GET ANOTHER SERIES ;-;-;-;
