Watch Happy Valley Season 3 Episode 6: synopsis

After 9 years, five BAFTA awards, and a seven year break, we finally get an ending to Sgt. Catherine Cawood's story (portrayed by the formidable Sarah Lancashire). And, as creator and writer Sally Wainwright has proved time and time again, it promises to be award-winning television that'll leave us at the edge of our seat. Confirmed to be longer than its usual 58-minute runtime, buckle up and find out how to watch Happy Valley Season 3 finale online and stream the last ever episode from anywhere.

Revealed to be working with crime lord and aspiring politician Darius Kneževićs who helped orchestrate his escape, Tommy Lee Royce is heading for Marbella - hopefully with son Ryan in tow. But first he's got plans to finally sort out Sgt. Cawood once and for all.

It won't be long, then, before Catherine and Tommy once again come face-to-face. As if a murderous fugitive on the loose making a beeline for her grandson wasn't enough, though, Catherine is also knee deep in investigating the murder of Joanna, who she'd previously arrested for illegal possession of prescription drugs. All this before she's due to retire on Thursday.

Meanwhile Ryan has made communication with Tommy, with the Season 3 trailer of the finale seeing him subsequently questioned by the police.

With so many theories of how Happy Valley could finally draw this dark and shocking story to a close, the official synopsis offers little clues of who will and won't get out of it alive. "Scores are settled for good on Catherine's final shift, and Ryan faces a moral dilemma."

Read our guide below on how to watch Happy Valley Season 3 finale online tonight from anywhere - it's 1 hour, 8 minutes of TV you won't want to miss.

If you're a UK citizen on vacation or working overseas, you can still watch Happy Valley just as you would at home.

For example, UK citizens in the States can subscribe to a VPN, join a UK based server and tune into all the programmes on BBC iPlayer from anywhere in the world, just like you would back home.
