JP Hooper (played by Tobi Bakare) spent the latest episode of Death in Paradise convincing Marlon Pryce (Tahj Miles) to stay on in the Saint Marie police force after his training scheme came to an end. The police officer succeeded but was stunned when Commissioner Selwyn Patterson (Don Warrington) explained he was in line for a promotion that would take him away from the island. JP rejected the offer but will Neville Parker (Ralf Little) change his mind?

Marlon and JP were interviewed by the Saint Marie police chiefs who were deciding whether the trainee should continue in the force. 

The colleagues were nervous once they’d given their speeches but the Commissioner delivered good news.

Selwyn said: “Training officer Pryce the board were immensely impressed with your account they said they’d never heard a speech like it.”

“Don’t mention it, boss,” Marlon replied. “Any time you need bigging up you only need to ask.”

After a notable pause, Selwyn said: “Now if you don’t mind I’d like a word with the sergeant.”

“Is everything okay sir did I say something wrong?” JP nervously asked. 

“As a matter of fact no quite the opposite if anything you were too eloquent,” his superior replied. 

“You’ve become a real credit to the Saint Marie police force sergeant Hooper which is why I’ll be so sorry to see you go.”

“Go? Go where sir,” JP asked and Selwyn explained: “The board would like you to consider becoming the head of a new police training programme.”

“For real? Does that mean I have to leave my job here, sir?” JP asked. 

“Not only your job but Saint Marie,” Selwyn revealed and the sergeant responded: “In that case sir please thank the board on my behalf but I love my life here.”

“I suggest you sleep on it discuss it with your wife. Opportunities like that don’t come along too often and I’d hate for you to miss youchance,” the Commissioner warned.

JP seemed pretty certain of his decision but a conversation with Neville could change his mind. 

The detective has embraced life on the island despite being out of his comfort zone and could encourage JP to accept the wonderful opportunity. 

Will the sergeant quit the team and leave the island or will he decide the best thing to do for his family is to stay in Saint Marie?

Death in Paradise fans certainly don’t want JP to leave as one tweeted: “Dear Prime Minister (Boris). Can you please liaise with the Saint Marie Governor to ensure that the legend that is JP stays on the team. Many thanks. Chris.”

Another wrote: “I love JP, don’t want him to leave! He is brill!!! I feel so proud of him though!”

“JP is a legend indeed. That’s why he needs to stay,” a third added.

Someone else shared: “We just shouted at TV , deserved but isn’t there a compromise please.”

“JP is great on the show, I hope he doesn’t leave,” a fifth remarked.

Death in Paradise continues on BBC One on Thursday at 9pm.
