BBC ‘Bodyguard’ aired the final episode of the compelling 6-part series and we’re still not okay.
Sunday, September 23 marked the end of Bodyguard season 1. The hit BBC One drama, which pulled in astronomical viewing figures and secured a spot on Netflix, ended with a twist that no one saw coming. The finale in the six-part series had fans feeling a range of emotions, from shock to disbelief and, in some cases, confusion.
Though it did seem dicey for David during the episode, the ending of Bodyguard season 1 did lay the mystery to rest and elicit some hilarious reactions from fans.
Some viewers straight up thought Julia would be back, only to have their hopes dashed.
‘But there is something you need first David’
Me: OMG Julia Montague is going to jump out of the cupboard 👏
Reality: trip to Occupational Health 🙈 #Bodyguard

With the assassination of Julia Montague at the heart of the mystery, fans were certain that the home secretary would be revealed to have been alive this whole time. While we’re not ruling it out for season 2, we have to admit it would have been an iconic reveal.
Julia Montague, the time traveling home secretary on Corfu. We…stan?
Keeley Hawes also plays Mrs. Durrell on ITV’s The Durrells. We love an acting queen, tbh.
Of course, the vest scene was not for the faint of heart.
Overall, the biggest takeaway from the whole series is that the boiler is a great place to hide your important items.
Anyway, Bodyguard’s far fetched ending had fans unable (or unwilling) to suspend their disbelief which is, undeniably, a good thing. Now, back to our Julia Montague conspiracy theories.
