Major's super-powers include the ability to create balloon sculptures. This may be a reference to Gaff's origami skills in Blade Runner .

DI John Major (Daniel Mays - Limehouse Golem (2016) ) has been upgraded, and he says he knows everything. This seems to mean everything in regards to the case - but his partner, DI Roy Carver (Stephen Graham - Season of the Witch (2011) ), is worried that Major might know about more personal things.

This leads up to a climax that ties together all the plot threads. That said, there is a hook for the next Season.
