This is a formula familiar to fans of detective series. Whether it’s on Bones , Castle , or even The Mentalist , the writers love to play on the ambiguous love between its two protagonists to draw viewers in week after week.
And the French HPI series is no stranger to this practice. Morgan (Audrey Fleurot) and Karadek (Mehdi Nebibu) have been hanging out for almost three seasons now, and I always miss them.
In the finale of season 1, when he decided to confess his feelings to the character played by Audrey Flerot, the commander discovered that the forties had returned to the relationship with the father of her children.
During the second season, it was Morgana’s turn to develop feelings for a colleague who was now in a relationship with Roxanne (Clotilda Hesme). A game of cat and mouse that culminated at the end of season two when Morgan and Karadek shared a passionate kiss.
Of course, it’s never a long calm river between our two heroes. After a year of waiting, viewers discovered on May 11 that in addition to not being in a relationship with Karadetz, Morgan simply decided to quit the police force.
But if HPI fans are secretly hoping that the two colleagues will get together one day, the writers of the detective series gave them a pleasant surprise at the end of the 3rd episode of the 3rd season, which was broadcast last night on TF1.
In the final moments, Morgan returns home to find that Timothy (Jeremy Levine), the new cop who was recruited to replace him in his absence, is responsible for protecting him at his home.
Then he noticed that in addition to ensuring his safety, the young man had tidied up the house and prepared a meal worthy of the greatest chefs. Neither one nor two, he hugs her and kisses her passionately.
A surprising ending, to say the least, which did not cause a reaction from Internet users. “Original this last episode of #HPI. 😂 I didn’t see it at all, Timothy” said a viewer on Twitter. “THIS END IS ICONIC pffff what an episode again” could also be read.
Will Morgan and Timothy live a beautiful love story? Will the consultant manage to forget Karadek? Answer in the next episodes of HPI, broadcast every Thursday evening from 9.10pm on TF1.
The entirety of Season 3 is now available on MyTF1 Max, the channel’s streaming platform.
