Luther (Idris Elba) and  Ripley (Warren Brown) search for a vigilante (Elliot Cowan) still mourning his dead wife and using social media to get the public on his side as he hunts down and murders recently released convicts (rapists, gangbangers, and pedophiles) in the name of justice. Meanwhile, Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird) and Stark (David O’Hara) try a different tack to get under Luther’s skin by scaring Mary (Sienna Guillory) and convincing Luther’s new girlfriend that the man she’s been seeing is responsible for his ex-wife‘s (Indira Varma) death. Before the end of the episode both storylines will converge in tragedy as Gray and Stark will be given all the ammunition they need to properly charge Luther and the detective will loose yet another person close to him to violence.

The opening episode of the third series of Luther brings two cases to the attention of DCI John Luther (Idris Elba). The first is a fetishized murder the detective is sure is linked to a series of murders from the 1980s. The second, and less important to the detective, is the murder of an Internet troll which is actually a set-up by Gray (Nikki Amuka-Bird) and a retired officer George Stark (David O’Hara) in an attempt to capture evidence to take the dirty cop down. Against his will Ripley (Warren Brown) is forced to help by wearing a wire, hoping his mentor will prove them wrong and not let a murderer (Lucian Msamati) with righteous fury for the killing go free.
