Ripper Street Season 2 Review “Dynamite and a Woman”

This week’s Ripper Street began with the death of a police officer who was taking an imprisoned Irishman to the gallows. Someone pays a kid to give the convict, Aidan, the keys to the wagon. This unleashes a whole lot of trouble and stirs up the conflict between Londoners and the Irish.

Jackson starts by trying to determine the manner of the officer’s death. He doesn’t find any bullet holes, blows to the head, or any other sign of physical trauma. Jackson doesn’t even find anything after an autopsy. It would be awfully convenient, though, if the officer had just keeled over from natural causes. After a time, Jackson figures out that the death was caused by an electrical shock to the head that stopped the officer’s heart.
