What happened at the end of Trust Me season 2?
WARNING: This article contains spoilers from Trust Me season 2.
Zoe saves Jamie
Trust Me season two’s finale opened with Jamie McCain (played by Alfred Enoch) flatlining.
Jamie had supposedly taken an overdose, leading to suspicions among a number of the hospital staff.
Dr Zoe Wade (Katie Clarkson-Hill) managed to save him, however.
She even later came clean to Jamie and said: “Someone tried to kill you.”
Soon after his revival, the news resulted in plenty of tense looks on the likes of Dr Alex Kiernan (Richard Rankin), Debbie Dorrell (Ashley Jensen) and Dr Archie Watson (John Hannah).
All three emerged as early potential culprits for the string of murders.
Trust Me season 2 ending: Dr Watson
Dr Zoe Wade soon found herself in handcuffs for the suspicious deaths.
The police used a glucose injection she gave Jamie without consulting his blood sugar levels as potential evidence.
The character’s mental health issues were also used in the police interview to try and indict the doctor.
As she was being led out of the hospital, Zoe made no secret in labelling Dr Watson as the suspect.
Zoe found herself spending time in a jail cell while Dr Watson informed Jamie about the situation.
However, she was released but soon found herself the subject of a national scandal as a result of her name being spread through social media.

Dr Wade goes on the run
After being let go from police questioning, Dr Zoe Wade returned home.
However, “new forensic evidence” came to light leading to the police returning to her home.
Zoe excused herself to the bathroom before heading to the police station.
Unbeknownst to the police, Zoe escaped through her bathroom window and went on the run.
Jamie then received a letter telling him to meet in the basement at 10:30pm, presumably from Zoe.
It did turn out to be her and Zoe told Jamie: “Watson set me up. I took all the evidence to him and then he tried to kill you.”
Dr Wade then tried to get Jamie to help investigate Dr Watson’s office to try and clear her name, setting up a tense second half of the finale.

Jamie slips up
Dr Watson quickly found Jamie rooting through his office.
Jamie accused Dr Watson of being the man responsible for all the mysterious deaths.
This led to a strange sort of confession from Hannah’s character as he said doctors: “Kill people all the time.”
Watson then issued a final threat: “If I wanted to kill you, you’d be dead already.”
Jamie was then reinstated on his ward after appearing to struggle with Watson’s revelation.
Trust Me season 2 ending: Debbie and Jamie
The truth about Jamie was revealed
Jamie’s PTSD has racked him with guilt throughout season two.
Several flashbacks appeared in all four episodes and Jamie finally revealed all to Debbie.
In a flashback, Jamie is shown serving overseas when he comes across wounded civilian.
With the man fatally wounded but still breathing, Jamie doesn’t know what to do.
The man pleads with Jamie to shoot him and end his pain.
Torn with the decision at hand, Jamie turns for advice from his fellow soldier, who shakes his head.
Trust Me viewers then witness Jamie shoot the man in the flashback.
Jamie then breaks down to Debbie after coming clean as the source of his PTSD is revealed.

Trust Me’s killer is revealed
After his heartfelt confession to Debbie, Jamie and his physio headed to the pool.
Debbie had become erratic following their conversation and started behaving oddly.
Jamie was tied up to a piece of apparatus and plunged into the water by Debbie after she came clean to killing Danny (Elliot Cooper).
However, Jamie managed to free himself from the structure, resulting in Debbie jumping into the pool.
Debbie tried to drown Jamie with her bare hands, but he managed to turn the tables on her.
Jamie gripped Debbie underwater until she was unconscious, at which point Zoe arrived after discovering the truth by investigating Watson’s old hospital.
Debbie managed to regain consciousness and was interviewed by the police for the string of murders.
In a bizarre interview, Debbie said the patients needed her help and that “Debbie always got there in the end.”
