    I think Jack killed Archie. He did it for Ronnie, and all along he's been trying to get other people to do a 'runner' - Janine and Bradley, to put the suspicion on them. If it wasn't Jack then my next guess would be Sam!!

    I don't understand how the cast don't know who it is. If they've filmed episodes for after tonight's live episode, aren't they going to know what happens next??
