Here’s a plot recap for the sixth and final episode, ‘I’ll Be Remembered’, which is streaming on BBC iPlayer now and premieres on BBC One at 9pm on Sunday 19th March 2023:

We meet a formidable looking Englishman in a luxurious villa in Spain. Back in England, DCI Boyce (Hugh Bonneville) interviews Palmer (Tom Cullen), but Palmer won’t talk.

Palmer pleads not guilty and convinces the jury of his innocence. He returns to Tenerife to run his timeshare empire, leaving his family behind.

Cooper (Dominic Cooper) initially cooperates with the police but, after receiving a threat, he stops cooperating and pleads not guilty. Parry escapes to Spain but is tracked down and arrested.

McAvoy (Adam Nagaitis)and Meacock (Sophia La Porta) get married in prison.

Noye (Jack Lowden) is put on trial for conspiracy to handle stolen goods and is found guilty, along with his criminal associates.

As the Task Force winds up, Boyce, Jennings (Charlotte Spencer) and Brightwell (Emun Elliott) have a shocking realisation…

The criminals they caught only ever had half of the stolen gold.

Both seasons of Guilt are available to watch on Amazon Prime Video.
