**Warning: Contains spoilers from The Traitors season 2.**


After four weeks of deception, betrayal and backstabbing, the final of The Traitors has finally arrived.

The epic competition show's second season has had viewers talking since it first aired earlier this month and with only one episode left before all is revealed, fans are busy theorising who will take home the life-changing prize fund.

The final five remaining in the competition are: Harry, Andrew, Molly, Evie and Jaz, meaning two people left the castle last night through a "murder" and banishment, as the remaining Faithfuls attempted to get another Traitor out of the castle.

The clock is ticking to see whether or not a Traitor will take home that grand cash prize. Will the Faithfuls succeed once again?

Who left The Traitors?

Following Zack's departure, all eyes turned on Jasmine and Evie and in the end, Jasmine's time was up on The Traitors. Due to her closeness with Ross, the remaining contestants felt as though given he was a Traitor, she must've been too – but they couldn't have been more wrong.

While admitting it was "gutting" to have left the competition, Jasmine said: "However, I got this far, and I thought I'd be gone by episode one. So, I am proud of myself."

Zack - "Murdered" in episode 11

Zack faced the wrath of the Traitors in the latest episode, as they made the decision to "murder" him after being able to sniff out that Ross was a Traitor, albeit only a day.

Following his exit from the series, Zack admitted he didn't think he had "anything else to give" and said he was at his "emotional limit".
"I think finding that last Traitor will probably be the hardest one yet," he explained. "I think the Ross one was difficult, and we just managed to get it over the line. I think I gave all I could, and I don't know how I would have been for the next couple of days in order to make it to the final. It is a bit gutting at the same time because you're so close to the big prize pot."

Ross - Banished in episode 10

While Ross was a Faithful for the majority of his time in the castle, it was the moment he became a Traitor it was all over.

As the day began, Zack was convinced that both Ross and Jasmine were Traitors and when the Faithful and remaining Traitors turned on him at the roundtable, he was banished from the castle.

Before he left, he revealed to the contestants that he was in fact Diane's son, leaving them all gobsmacked.

In a Q&A following his departure from the show, Ross said it felt "pretty good" to be leaving so close to the end of the game.

He added: "I genuinely thought I wouldn't make it past day two or three. I was hoping that I wouldn't be the first one to go so anything after day two, three or four felt like borrowed time."

Charlotte - Banished in episode 9

Charlotte will miss out on the final week of Traitors action after she was banished from the castle by her fellow contestants.

The 32-year-old was a close ally of the traitorous Paul and her best friend Charlie was murdered at the start of the episode.

Suspicions grew around Charlotte over the course of the day, with accusations that Charlotte had performed a double-bluff in killing her closest companion in the castle.

The recruitment manager locked horns with Jasmine throughout the episode, with each contestant throwing the other one into the spotlight for questioning. Ultimately, more people sided with Jasmine on this occasion and Faithful Charlotte was shown the door.

Charlie - Murdered in episode 9

Charlie broke the streak of Traitors leaving the castle as treacherous duo of Harry and Andrew returned to murdering ways.

The 34-year-old was left devastated in episode 8 after failing to secure a shield during the trial. The miss came back to haunt her at the first opportunity.

Charlie looked visibly upset after receiving her letter from the Traitors, admitting it was hard to leave the castle without saying goodbye to her new friends.

The mental health area manager, a popular member of the group, was shockingly taken out by the Traitors and Harry began to frame Charlie's bestie, Charlotte, for the murder.

Paul - Banished in episode 8

Paul is the latest Traitor to be banished from the castle, after fellow Traitor Harry made the decision to turn on him.

Former Traitor Miles saw this coming as soon as he was banished, noting that Harry and Paul were going to turn on each other "sooner or later".

"It's obvious they are playing for themselves," he told RadioTimes.com. "So, I think what you're seeing now is Harry feeling a bit like, 'Well, I feel like we're playing your game and I'm not willing to do that all the way through.'

"And I think they've both got their own game plan, so I think you might see, sooner or later, they might have to turn on each other. And that'd be really interesting to see."

Miles - Banished in episode 7

As we saw in the beginning episodes, Miles was recruited as the fourth Traitor and for the most part, he was doing a good job. However this all changed when he gave Diane the 'poisoned' chalice, to which she finally worked it out and shared her suspicions with Paul.

Paul did not hold back at the roundtable and neither did Miles, with both of them going for one another. In the end, it was Miles who received the most votes and was banished from the castle.

Speaking about his exit, Miles said he feels "good" to have left the show at this point. "I feel like I’ve been there long enough that people knew me, myself as an individual," he said in a Q&A.

"I was doing alright because I never got mentioned or picked up on leading up to this so, obviously when I came out it was the only time when my name was ever mentioned, so I was doing alright."

Diane - Murdered in episode 7

Diane became the latest Faithful to be murdered at the hands of the Traitors, and no one took it lightly. As viewers saw at the end of episode 6, the Traitors had to 'poison' a faithful and they chose Diane, with Miles handing her a drink.

During a mission, the Faithfuls had to correctly guess who had been murdered by the Traitors in order to add a huge £7,000 to the cash prize fund. In a ceremony, the Faithfuls laid black roses in the coffin of who they believed had been murdered, and with Diane receiving the most, the players boosted their prize fund.

Speaking in a Q&A about her exit, Diane said it "feels amazing" that she managed to get so far in the competition.

"I really thought I was going out after the three-way tie at the round table," she explained. "I thought I'd be out the next day, so I have done a lot better than I expected.

"I have loved the challenges, and I would have loved to have more fun with Ross, telling stories about my son and him telling stories about his mum and I would have liked to have stayed on further. I didn’t have to win but I would have definitely liked a few more missions under my belt."

Anthony - Banished in episode 6

The roundtable continued to bring some serious tension as all eyes eventually fell on Anthony who was set up by the Traitors to take the fall following Tracey's murder. His fellow Faithfuls claimed that he was "clever" at diverting conversations around who is a Traitor and who isn't but ultimately, the chess champion didn't succeed in proving his innocence as the majority voted for him to be banished.

As he left, he had some words of advice for the Faithfuls and plainly told them: "Well, this is indeed a wonderful game to play. Those of you that remain, I really hope that you take this opportunity to really look around you. Try and see through the fog."

Tracey - Murdered in episode 6

The fifth episode left on a cliffhanger as the Traitors decided who to murder with them coming to the conclusion that they needed to get rid of someone who wasn't a big personality or someone who's too quiet either. While the decision boiled down to Diane, Tracey and Charlotte, it was ultimately Tracey that met her end.

Having learnt that she was being murdered, Tracey said: "Because my gift of seeing people's auras and being quite psychic, I was going to be such an asset to the Faithfuls, which is probably why they murdered me. I don't know who the Traitors are but they're playing a very good game."

Jonny - Banished in episode 5

Jonny was the latest faithful to be banished from the castle. After Ross raised his suspicions about Jonny due to his demeanour during the roundtables, everyone began to vote for Jonny. But as they soon found out, he was in fact a Faithful.

"I'm always me and I'm always trying to be a better version of myself every single day and I know these things sound like clichés but because of that, I wouldn’t change anything," Jonny said of his time on The Traitors.

"I know that I was me and I maintained that throughout. I say that about anything I do because I like to think I've got good self-awareness in the way I approach things and do things. I won’t make a mistake because I've already thought about it, even though I am only human so I do make mistakes, but in this situation, I don’t think I'd change anything."

Meg - Murdered in episode 5

After Ash was banished, the remaining Traitors were able to murder someone who was in the dungeon. However, due to Andrew being saved by the other contestants and a Traitor being unable to be murdered, it was Meg whose fate was sealed.

Since leaving the show, Meg says she feels "pretty blessed".

"Even getting nearly halfway is like 'oh my god, I made it basically halfway, that's amazing.' That's great for me, I didn't think I'd make it past day one, so I'm just happy I got another four or five days out of it really," she said.

Ash - Banished in episode 4

Ash was the third contestant to be banished from the competition as her fellow Traitors turned on her. It was a close call for her at the prior banishment but after sending herself to the dungeon, the faithful's suspicions only rose.

Ash admitted she is "quite sad" to be leaving so early in the competition but at the same time she is "grateful".

She said: "I feel like I'm very privileged to have been here. It's been an honour and even if I'd have had one episode that would have been ok for me. I got to do some missions, I got to have some fun, I got to run around the castle, I got to sit at the Round Table and I got to be a Traitor, which not very many people can say. So, I can’t really complain. I got to wear a cloak and I got to look a bit creepy!"

Brian - Banished in episode 4

Brian became the second contestant to be banished from the castle as he received the most votes. The decision was made following his outburst at the roundtable which led to his fellow contestants growing suspicious of him.

Following his exit from the show, Brian said he was initially "gutted" to be leaving but is now "happy" he went home.

He explained: "At the same time as I'm saying that I'm happy to go home, I'm also thinking 'oh, what are they doing now?'"

Kyra – Murdered in episode 3

At the beginning of episode 3, the Traitor's second victim was revealed to be 21-year-old apprentice economist Kyra from Kent.

The decision was taken by the four Traitors due to Kyra's outspoken nature, which marked her out as someone who was potentially dangerous and that they would be better off getting rid of.

Ahead of the show, Kyra had said that she was hoping to bring something to the game "that a lot of people won't have seen before", which is someone "very young who's outspoken and not afraid to speak their mind or stand up for themselves".

"I also like to push my boundaries. I'm successful at my job and I have the ability to be articulate and socialise with other people, so I think I'll be good in the game," she added.

After her murder, she said: "I'm sad. I think with this game you have to strike a balance and I think for me I didn't strike that balance particularly well in the sense that I was too outspoken and I think that was intimidating."

Sonja – Banished in episode 2

66-year-old volunteer business mentor Sonja from Lancashire became the first player to be banished in season 2 after she was overwhelmingly voted out during the first roundtable.

Despite the fact that she was a Faithful, her somewhat erratic behaviour led the other contestants to believe she was acting suspiciously and that she must be a Traitor.

Sonja had signed up for The Traitors after watching the first season, which she thought was "fantastic". She became so fascinated with the show that she watched all of the other international versions also.

Before the season began, she said her ambition was to make it to the end, explaining: "I am going to definitely go all the way, there is nothing really that I won't do other than upset somebody to win. There are many ways to beat somebody and mislead somebody without upsetting them."

Aubrey - Murdered in episode 2

Aubrey, 57, from Loughborough, Leicestershire, was the first player to be "murdered" in season 2.

It was decided by Traitors Ash, Miles, Paul and Harry that the retired shop owner was a little too observant, which was making them feel uneasy.

Asked why he decided to sign up for the show, Aubrey said: "When I watched it last year, I thought to myself: 'I could do that.' That was it.

"Then I think Claudia had announced that applications were open, and before I knew it, I was on the link. I'd never, ever dreamt in a million years that I'd be where I am now. So that was it, really, no other reason.

"Oh, and to speak the truth, the location is beautiful, that castle is fantastic, and why not at 66?"

Episodes 1-8 of The Traitors season 2 are available to stream on BBC iPlayer. Episode 9 will air on BBC One and BBC iPlayer on Friday 19th January at 9pm.
