It was a tense episode of Love/Hate last night as Siobhan and Nidge came to blows over Pauley's death.

But the character who plays Dean said that he had an inkling that his character was up for the chop.

Siobhan appears to have got away with murder as she managed to convince both Nidge and Pauley's uncle, Terrence that she was the victim in Pauley's death.

This makes Siobhan (Charlie Murphy) even more determined to bring down Nidge as she revealed to Moynihan that she has a plan to take him out. As she heads to Fran's yard to try and find Git's remains, she doesn't realise Fran is on the loose.

Fran and Dean arrive at the yard right as Siobhan finds and pockets the IRA man's finger bone.

Beaten

A terrified Siobhan hides under the caravan as Fran takes a terrible revenge on Dean for becoming part of Nidge's gang and batters him to death before her eyes.

Ian Lloyd Anderson, who plays Dean in the top gangland drama, says that while he knew his character was probably going to be killed off, he's still sad to be leaving the show.

"A year ago, Stuart had kind of implied that I wouldn't make it through the next series so it didn't come as a total shock.

"Of course I'd rather stay alive but you can't be precious about it. It's all about the story," he added.

SHAME

Ian also wishes that Fran had given Dean a chance to tell his side of the story.

"I think it's a shame Fran didn't hear him out. I do think he was stuck between a rock and a hard place and genuinely wanted to get Fran out of Dodge," he said.

"Myself and Peter had great craic filming the Fran and Dean scenes over the years. We started on the same day four years ago so it was great to go full circle and shoot my final scene with Pete. He's a smashing actor."

And Ian says he'll miss filming with the Love/Hate gang.

"In this job it can be rare that everything just clicks and everyone is so together. It's sad that I won't get the call in February to say we're getting the gang back together.

"Love/Hate has been very good to me over the years. I'm very proud of it," he added.
