Silent Witness season 24: Matters of Life and Death part 2 was released on October 5, making fans wonder if there will be an episode 11 or not. Unfortunately for those looking forward to another episode, season 24 concluded with its tenth episode last week. However, that is no reason for the fans of the show to sulk. There’s much more to the long-running crime drama yet to come. Season 25 of Silent Witness has already been announced, and we already have some ideas of what it may entail.
Silent Witness season 24 saw the entry of a newcomer in Adam. Initially annoying to Jack and Nikki, he was a rather enthusiastic and charming character. However, later on, the character met a sad end. We also saw the leads, Jack and Nikki, coming ever so close to each other. The last episode stamped a seal on their budding romantic relationship. We finally saw the two kiss each other. If the end of season 24 is any clue, they’re going to be a great couple in the upcoming season. Let’s now delve into the contents — or the lack thereof — of episode 11 of Silent Witness season 24. Spoilers ahead!

He then tells her that she now works at the same care home where Robbo’s murder took place. We then move to the care home where Derek is suffering from extremely agonizing pain. Meanwhile, his wife Beattie is also struggling to keep alive as her oxygen tank is almost out of power.
Jack decides to venture out amid the intense storm to find batteries and medication for Derek. He fails to find any. Derek can’t bear his pain anymore and asks Jack to euthanize him with morphine. Jack refuses to do it. Meanwhile, Amrita has mysteriously disappeared from the care home. Simone decides to find Amrita with the help of Mary — the care home manager. Jack goes to look for her outside and spots her caravan. Before he can do anything, the flood takes the caravan away with it. Later, we see Nikki and Jack getting intimate as they have their first kiss. However, as Jack’s car leaves, he receives her voicemail from last night. Before the voicemail ends, he hears Ollie in the background calling her to bed. This shatters Jack. When he gets home, another bad news awaits him.
Investigation Concludes, Jack and Nikki Get Close
His father had fallen and sustained injuries on his head, although the ambulance came and patched him up. Jack hugs his father, crying and apologizing for not being there. Later, the team finds Derek’s dead body, killed in the same way as Robbo. Another shocking update entails Amrita’s death. The team goes to visit the place where her body was spotted. Nikki examines the situation and tells Galloway it didn’t wash ashore. It was instead someone who planted it there. As they all try to piece together the puzzle, Simone tells Nikki that Jack is also a suspect now. Nikki asks why and Simone says it’s because he was the one with Derek in his last moments. She also tells her that she saw him getting something out of a green box that had his fingerprints.
Nikki tries to call him, but he doesn’t pick up. She then heads over to his father’s and tells him to call Jack. He picks up, and Connor hands the phone over to Nikki. She asks Jack to let her help him. Meanwhile, Jack has been doing his own investigating, and he finally finds the culprit. It’s Beattie. He goes to visit her, and we learn that Beattie did so to help Robbo and Derek leave an excruciating life. The team finds out about Amrita’s death too. Mary had accidentally killed her by hiding her in the loft. When she found her dead, she dumped her body in the field. With the mystery solved, Simone apologizes to Jack, who heads inside his home to find Nikki on the couch. The episode ends with the two sharing a tender moment.
