Further details

After picking up a very hungover Jamie from Kat's, Fran is upbeat about the forthcoming job to Japan that Mr V has arranged as they head to the hit. Once they've disposed of Methven, a funeral director with a sideline in organ harvesting, they set off - only to be pursued by who they presume is "& Son" of "Methven & Son".

The hearse chases their van at alarming speed, but they manage to shake him off - but he reappears as they puncture a tyre in a remote farmyard. They escape by foot, and when they return, the hearse is still there but "& Son" is nowhere to be seen - so they jump in the hearse and escape. As they drive, Jamie drops the bombshell that Kat has offered her a permanent job and she won't be joining Fran on the job in Japan. Fran stops the car and they row bitterly, unaware that "& Son" is creeping out silently from under the coffin in the back and he manages to chloroform them.

Fran and Jamie wake up in a coffin and, thinking they are about to die, have a reconciliation - when suddenly there's the noise of the lid being unscrewed and a car driving away. They emerge from the coffin and from a distance Kat appears, having apparently tracked them on find my friends. Fran and Jamie cover with a story about an intense training weekend, but Fran is suspicious at the coincidence of Kat finding them - and also weirded out by the multiple copies of a photo of Fran as a schoolgirl in the back of Kat's car as they drive away. When we pan to a dead "& Son", strangled by the scarf Kat was wearing earlier, we realise that Fran is right to be worried.
