Hatton Garden has proved a hit with ITV viewers ever since the series premiered after a two-year delay on Monday, May 20. The ITV series is based on the true events of a robbery in London’s diamond district over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend of 2015 and the aftermath of the heist. With the series finale opening with the elderly gang of criminals, led by Terry Perkins (played by Timothy Spall), trying to keep a low-profile, here’s how it ended.
How did Hatton Garden on ITV end?
The gang struggle to lay low
Terry had told his accomplices in episode three that they shouldn’t make contact with each other for six months.
Hatton Garden viewers soon saw that this was easier said than done as Danny (David Hayman) continued to arrive at Terry’s home.
Elsewhere, Kenny (Alex Norton) had trouble staying out of the sights of the police who tracked him down thank to his Mercedes.
Brian (Kenneth Cranham) also found himself in the firing line after meeting with Kenny in the park.
With the watchful eye of the law cast over Kenny and Brian combined with Danny and Terry’s continued contact, it didn’t bode well for the criminal gang.
Carl gets his cut
Carl (Geoff Bell) hadn’t been seen on the ITV drama since he left the gang in episode two when they returned to the crime scene for the second time.
ITV viewers watched as he abandoned plans to help break into the Hatton Garden safety deposit building over fears of a police set-up.
He returned in the Hatton Garden finale when met by Danny.
Danny tracked him down to his gym and gave him £20,000, although he made sure Carl knew he was far from forgiven.
Carl was given the £20,000 to “keep his mouth shut” and was told he let the team down.
Brian and Terry come face-to-face again
Kenny managed to arrange a meeting between Brian and Terry with the former adamant he was owed a cut of the haul.
Brian offered Terry the chance to move the stolen goods for a price, taking a percentage.
Cranham’s character told Terry: “You need me – without me, this will blow up in your face.”
Terry remained unmoved and told Brian he would be given “f*** all.”
The pair’s tense confrontation ended with Brian storming out of their meeting.
He issued one final threat to Terry, telling him: “You don’t want to make an enemy out of me.”
With Terry’s words ringing in his ears, Brian later tried to manipulate Kenny into giving him a share from the goods they had yet divided up.
However, the gang weren’t the only ones at the pub during their meeting with the police catching them on CCTV and proceeding to surveil all of the members.
The gang’s plans begin to fall apart
With a hunch that Kenny and Brian had been plotting behind his back, Terry and Danny arrived to move the loot from his home.
However, Kenny had a surprise in store when he said the load had been moved to his brother-in-law’s.
This prompted Terry to act in a fit of rage and moved the divvy up forward to the closest Friday.
The heat was too much for Basil (Michael F O’Byrne) who refused to attend.
This also put a spanner in the works for Brian’s plan to take some of the goods from the remaining pile.
With tensions running high, continued contact with one another and a forward-dated divvy up, it was only a matter of time before the gang was caught.
The police catch the Hatton Garden criminals
Friday rolled around and Kenny met his brother-in-law in a secluded car park to collect the haul.
Kenny then waited for Brian to turn up to get his share but was promptly surprised by Terry and Danny who got in his car to foil his plan.
When Brian rang Kenny for the location, Terry answered and reiterated the fact he would be receiving “f*** all” of the goods.
The trio of Kenny, Terry and Danny then made their way to Terry’s daughter’s house to get on with the divvy up, while Basil made his own way there.
Brian rang Basil and begged him to fight his corner and get him a cut – however, once Basil heard Brian had met with Terry, he quickly changed his mind and drove past the house.
Inside the house, armed police made their way indoors and arrested Terry, Danny and Kenny.
Brian was also arrested after making his way back to his home.
Hatton Garden is available to watch online via the ITV Hub now.
