Series 2 - Episode 5



Fortitude is oddness on an epic scale, a titanic yuck-fest. Beheadings, mutilations, big men having big fights and, tonight, a grotesque killing in a shower that makes the Hitchcock’s Psycho scene look like an outtake from The Sound of Music. It’s horrible.

If you can bear to look at the screen strange, inexplicable things keep happening as a blizzard closes in on the little Arctic community. Its ex-governor Hildur (Sofie Grabol) receives a mysterious package complete with a shocking film snippet that suggests someone has tampered with nature in the most repellent way.

There’s another head in search of a body, and that sinister supposed shaman (Misfits’ Robert Sheehan) gets up to bloody mischief.


Michael finds a glimmer of hope for Freya, while Vincent's trust in Natalie is shattered. Later, a disturbing challenge is issued.
