Fortitude: Episode 9
March 27, 2015 6:48 AM - Season 1, Episode 9 - Subscribe

New & Exclusive. DCI Morton pursues Henry Tyson into the Arctic wilderness in search of the truth, while worrying test results force Governor Odegard to take drastic action. This episode aired on March 26, 2015.

We've entered the final act of the series, and while more answers are being revealed, more questions continue to arise. The peaceful town is cracking under the pressure of murder and infection, while individuals are cracking under the pressure of responsibility, infidelity, and buried secrets. Several stories came to an end, and a few more are getting close to completing as well. There are two more episodes left in the series.

The AV Club review is here - labeled as episode 10.

They better not turn into zombies. I will be pissed if it goes there.

I did not see the scene between Henry and Morton coming.

This was the first episode that I didn't struggle with the accents and that I enjoyed every second of. Can't wait to see what happens next.

Wiki says three more episodes (it also labels this as episode 10).

The buried hoard of mammoth tusks, a fortune in ivory that could save the island (at least temporarily) except it's contaminated with zombie virus.

Dan certainly was unlucky in the father department. One was brutal, the other phones the police in London and accuses him of murder.

Also, I don't want to have to watch the opening scene of the first ep a third time, but it really looked like Henry was not capable of a head shot on Pettigrew, the sound editing made it seem like it was Dan who killed him, a mercy killing because he wasn't going to survive a polar bear mauling, and later we were shown that Eric had fought with Pettigrew outside the bar so I don't think it's a forgone conclusion that Morton "knows everything". I think Henry has f*cked up things again.

I completely mistook what happened in the scene between Henry and Morton - I thought maybe a Russian or other player had shot Henry right at the big reveal. Realizing it was Morton whom was wounded made it even more shocking. And while I respect that beloved characters can die, I hope Morton makes it to the end.

BTW I've been using the episode numbering from Sky TV's series page, and they only list eleven episodes in the series.

jazon i also thought the russians were onto them! But I think morton was equally as shocked and confused. When he broke... this episode was all about people breaking. And for Dan, in a good way.

I do want to watch the first few eps again, between Dan and Henry. They always had such a relationship - i can only imagine what it would be like, living like that.

how many times are they going to play the same clip of the man in the closet? surely he must die or poop, either way get noticed somehow. I think it's pretty clear his brother beat him up - thus the bloody knuckles.
