'McMafia' Episode 6 Review: 10 Questions It Left Us Asking

  'McMafia' Episode 6 Review: 10 Questions It Left Us Asking Alex Godman’s worst fears were realised as ‘McMafia’ continued on Sunday (28 January) night, as it became abundantly clear Vadim was onto him. As the slick BBC drama neared ever closer to its final chapter, Alex found his family under threat from the Russian mobster, who had found out he and Semiyon Kleiman were behind his recent business failings.

We’re hurtling towards the end of BBC’s big budget drama ‘McMafia’, and while we’ve loved every second of it, we have to admit, we’re definitely ready for it to be over.

With all the goings-on over the last six episodes, our heads are a bit scrambled, but finally the strands are all coming together in time for next week’s finale.

The penultimate episode, which aired on Sunday (4 February), dealt with the fall out of Rebecca’s shooting, and while she survived, Alex’s world continued to crumble around him.

Here are the questions we’re asking this week...

Is Oleg to be trusted?

Having learned of Alex’s dealings, a furious Dimitri instructed his son he must do whatever it takes to undo his work against Vadim. He then called up his old friend Oleg to help Alex do this, but should we be suspicious of a character that has clear links to Vadim?

What’s Ilya up to?

We don’t know whether we missed something, but we totally didn’t understand what Ilya’s visit to the FSB was about.

Has Semiyon really ‘made peace’ with Alex?

Everything between the pair seemed to be water under the bridge when they met, but it soon became clear Semiyon is harbouring ill-felling towards Alex.

He was seen stabbing Alex in the back by telling Vadim that he isn’t the only patron Alex has, and if there is any trouble, not to land it at his door. Is he planning to make Alex take the fall for all of their dealings?

Is Josef really a secret agent for Semiyon?

We were led to believe he quit working for Semiyon to support Alex’s security operation, but a look between Josef and Semiyon as he told Alex he was “sorry” seemed to suggest his loyalties may lie with his former boss after all. Could Josef be the key player in Semiyon’s plan to pin blame on Alex?

What was in the message Vadim sent to stop the assassination on Alex?

Having been watched closely by one of Vadim’s men, it looked like it was all over for Alex when he was followed by a man with a gun to a cash point. However, Vadim sent them a message at the very last second, and the hit man walked on by rather than taking out James Norton’s character.

The question is though, why did Vadim decide against killing Alex, and what was in that message cancelling the instruction? If only we spoke Russian...

Who shot Natasha and who are they working for?

Vadim was hosting a farewell to his daughter when a man approached her outside, seemingly trying to hit on her and her friends, but moments later she was brutally shot multiple times, before the gunman was driven off in a getaway car.

We’re guessing it wasnt anyone from the Godman family who ordered her murder, so just who did? Are they connected to any of the characters we already know, or had Vadim got another enemy with an axe to grind?

Steve Walsh's job is under review

  Steve Walsh's job is under review Steve Walsh’s position as Everton’s Director of Football is currently under review by owner Farhad Moshiri, according to the Guardian. The former Leicester scout has come under fire this season, with the club’s on-field performances being largely underwhelming, despite Walsh spearheading a £239million recruitment drive. Pressure appeared to mount around Walsh’s position when Ronald Koeman was sacked as Everton manager in November, but he was offered a reprieve and was heavily involved in the process of appointing Koeman’s successor, Sam Allardyce. Since then, further questions have been over Walsh’s role, with the Everton careers of both Sandro Ramírez and Davy Klaassen having fallen by the wayside. PSV Eindhoven’s Director of Football Marcel Brands is rumoured to be a potential replacement for Walsh if he is moved on by Moshiri, who will certainly want to fix any problems before they continue to persist. Everton broke their transfer record twice last summer, signing nine first-team players (including Henry Onyekuru), and many have largely proven to be disappointing. More worrying for Everton is that, despite spending large sums of money, the squad is still riddled with issues and paper thin squad depth in certain positions, namely on the left-side of defence. With just seven points separating Everton and the relegation zone, and with it difficult to say the club is moving in the correct direction, Walsh could well be on borrowed time.

McMafia episode 7 is the penultimate episode of the series this year; with that, this is going to be when things start to move closer to a resolution. This installment should give us a good sense as to her fate. By the end of this episode, the biggest thing that we ’re hoping to see is some sort of

10 Burning Question ' McMafia ' Episode Six Left Us Asking. We ’d barely had time to catch our breath from the first episode of ‘ McMafia ’ before the second instalment hit the ground running just 24 hours later.

Why was Dimitri trying to stop Alex from going to Moscow?

As Alex was seen preparing to head to Moscow to sort things once and for all, Dimitri was panicking as he received a worrying phone call. Just moments later, he desperately tried to reach Alex, leaving him a message to call him urgently - what was detailed to Dimitri in the call, and what effect will this have on Alex in Moscow?

Will Rebecca get a happy ending?

We know Rebecca is only a secondary character, but from having to put up with Alex’s shady dealings, his awful family, getting shot and losing a baby, she’s arguably had the most s**t to deal with.

We were totally Team Rebecca when she told Alex where to go when he came to visit her in hospital, so wouldn’t it be nice if the character just had a bit of happiness - maybe with the mysterious ‘Antonio’?

‘McMafia’ concludes next Sunday at 9pm on BBC One.
