Unsolved Murder
The Murder Of Nikki Allen

On the 7th of October 1992 in Sunderland, England, 7 year old Nikki Allen was walking back home from her nan’s house when she was abducted. Allen’s mother was only a corridor and stairway behind at the Wear Garth flats quad, a flat block homing hundreds of families.  

After an extensive search Allen’s coat was found folded next to her shoes at an old exchange building. Inside the young girls body was found, autopsy revealed she had been hot around the head with a brick and stabbed 37 times.

Two men have been questioned and even had a trial but they were both acquitted.

This case is still unsolved

The Disappearance Of Charlene Downes

On the 1st of November 2003 in Blackpool, England, 14 year old Charlene Downes left home telling her mother she was off to see friends at the amusements in the seaside town. Downes was last spotted in an area of the town know for kebab houses and takeaways, its believed she was murdered hours after this sighting.

Police investigation discovered that Downes was locally groomed and a victim of child sexual abuse. At least 60 girls were groomed for sex that was centred in the kebab area of the town where she was last seen. The teenager began to lead a chaotic life after being expelled from school and alongside the vulnerable girls was offered gifts and affection.

Iyad Atbattikhi and Mohammad Raveshi who owned the “Funky Boyz” takeaway were arrested and charged with Charlene’s murder. It’s claimed the pair had sex with Downes as well as jokingly saying they “put her remains in kebabs”. Jury couldn’t reach a veridic and both men were freed with £250k compensation.

Iyad has since been arrested over crimes involving young girls

Charlene Downes body has still not been found

I found your point about Len not liking Rip interesting because it's something I saw while watching a few of the later episodes of season one but didn't really think about until later. At the beginning, he got angry with him after hearing the truth about being a legend and then again during Russia. But then he seemed to calm down and work with him well enough until the pilgrim episode where he started getting hostile. What do you think it was he didn't like? The secrets/lies about the mission?

In a nutshell, I think the biggest reason that Len dislikes Rip can be summed up in this gif:


Len doesn’t like to feel used by people. He especially doesn’t like to feel used by people whose motives mean putting a goal above the best interests of the team, the crew. I gather that Len prides himself on planning jobs in such a clean and neat way so as to minimize the risk to his crews as much as possible. No need to kill security guards or anyone else when you work with him, to take unnecessary action; he’s got it covered. That’s his guarantee when you work him: getting away clean and easy. 

(Of course, spurn that, stop following orders, or try to get out, and he’ll ice you faster than anyone. But so long as you’re loyal, he 100% has your back).

I think Len was miffed about the lying upfront, but I don’t think he was ready to blacklist Rip because of it. Be wary of him, yes, and be cautious, sure, but it wasn’t enough to hate him. Because although Len prides himself on being authentic to himself, he doesn’t really have any issue with lying, per se. He’s ready to carry on and keep going, to listen to Rip, and it’s all… okay (ish).

But then Mick (and the others) get abducted in Russia and all bets are off because Len is pissed that his partner got captured and he’s pissed at Ray but especially at Rip because Rip is the available target to put his anger toward (a bit of that is discussed in my analysis here).

I think after that, Len isn’t ready to put much trust in Rip. He’ll work with him because he sees it as the best course of action for him, but he’s not really aiming to trust Rip. Despite that, I think he does come to trust him a bit again (despite his anger over how everything fell apart with Mick, because I think he blames himself for that). But when Jax gets hurt fixing the ship late-season, Len is ready to pull the plug and call it quits. I think that’s when his begrudging remaining trust for Rip really shattered. He can’t put himself in league with the man that he thinks values the mission over Jax’s life and wellbeing. 

Which is, again, the crux of it. Whether it’s true or fair or not, I think Len perceives Rip as not valuing the lives of the team enough, breeding mistrust and ultimately dislike. Because Len would dislike that Rip admits to needing them and strategically selecting them based on what they can do, and yet acts a little holier than thou about them demonstrating the exact skills he hired them for (chastising them for stealing or Sara for killing) until he needs those skills for a specific purpose (e.g., killing Stein in Russia, which would’ve really helped cinch a negative opinion from Len about Rip I think). From Len’s point of view then, Rip values only the pieces of them that he can use (at least at the start).

I don’t mean this to knock Rip in particular, but I do genuinely believe that’s how Len would have perceived him, at least for some/most of their journey? Tenuous distrust but understanding that Rip is trying to do the right thing, means no one any harm, and just desperately wants to save the people he loves (which, that last one? Len would definitely be able to identify with).

As much as I love the idea of Sherlock and Molly having a big fancy wedding with hundreds of guests and a honeymoon on a private island that Sherlock was given as payment for a case, I also can’t imagine either of them wanting that kind of attention on them all day. My alternate idea for their wedding is when they’ve been together for a few years - Molly is 6 months pregnant when Sherlock puts his newspaper down and asks if she wants to get married. Out of the blue, but it’s not like they’re not ready to commit to each other. 

The main problem is that it’s a week before Christmas, and they won’t have the time to plan a wedding when the baby arrives… so they hatch a plan. They invite their family and closest friends - 15 people in total - to Baker Street on Christmas eve, with a dress code of ‘semi-formal’. The women are sent to the living room of 221B, while the men meet Sherlock in Mrs Hudson’s flat, and it soon becomes clear that it’s not a normal Christmas party. After the situation is explained, there’s a rush to get Molly’s hair done and her dress on, while Sherlock gets the generic ‘how to be a good husband’ speech from his father, John, Greg, Mycroft, and Molly’s younger brother. Mycroft calls in a favour and the groomsmen make their way to the nearest registry office in a fleet of black cars, followed by the bridal party. 

After the ceremony, they all go back to Baker Street, where Mrs Hudson and Mrs Holmes put on a slapdash wedding breakfast - including a Christmas pudding that Sherlock and Molly burn the brandy off (using a blowtorch) to a round of applause from their guests. The wedding party lasts until 9pm, when Sherlock’s parents kiss him and Molly goodbye for the 5th time, drag Mycroft from the chair he’s dozing in, and leave the newlyweds alone to celebrate with their first dance.
