The Widow episode 3 review: A heartbreaking blow for Georgia in her search

This attempted to up the stakes and introduced us to some colourful new characters, with their French hip-hop and no-nonsense Louise (Mathilde Warnier) a welcome antidote to Georgia’s quivering-lipped earnestness.

But its suddenness also felt like an unnecessary diversion from Georgia’s mission, sharply brought back into focus by her shooting a man trying to abduct her. She dealt with it rather coolly. Shock and grief talking or has Georgia secretly been a mercenary this whole time? That would be fun!

Her only step forward this week seemed to be learning that Will had been cheating on her with the wife of a Congolese general – and that came before the robbery.

Of course there’s bound to be more to it than that, and thanks to the strong emotive flashback sequences, we want to tune in tomorrow and find out more. But at this point, only two standout scenes in an hour-long episode isn’t good enough.

The Widow continues Tuesday at 9pm on ITV.
