LOVE/HATE - Series 5
LOVE/HATE returns for a fifth season and Nidge (Tom Vaughan Lawlor) is once again king of all he surveys. Nidge narrowly avoided prison following Moynihan's surveillance operation and the debilitating paranoia that grew from his guilt over Darren, over Linda, and everything he's done, has passed. However, he's had to take out a huge loan from an Irish drug dealer based in Spain and there's a caveat. Nidge is now saddled with Pauley (Johnny Ward) who has come back from Spain to protect the lender's interests and keep Nidge out of trouble. But as Nidge's ambition reaches its zenith, the seeds of disaster are already sown in his past and his enemies are circling for revenge.
With Tommy (Killian Scott) back in a coma, Siobhan (Charlie Murphy) now burns with a desire for retribution. She's working with Detective Inspector Moynihan (Brían F. O'Byrne) who, having suffered a career setback from the failure of his sting operation, is even more determined to bring Nidge down.
The tensions between Nidge and the pretender Fran (Peter Coonan) - increasingly violent, erratic and resentful of Nidge's authority - are starting to spill over into conflict and betrayal. As his enemies close in Nidge must battle to save his throne and his skin.
