Luther viewers stunned as Alice Morgan makes shock return in cliffhanger ending

Luther viewers were stunned tonight as Alice Morgan made a shock return in a cliffhanger ending.

Ruth Wilson’s character supposedly ‘died’ off-screen when she was drowned by Megan, who revealed all at the start of season 4.

But the psychopath made a dramatic return in the final moments of the series 5 opener.

After hearing a frantic knock on the door, terrified Luther headed downstairs with a gun behind his bag.

He looked like he had seen a ghost when Alice appeared, then said: "Watcha!"

Ruth Wilson has previously spoken about her return to the hit BBC series.

"We find that Alice isn’t actually dead," she said talking to Digital Spy .

"Things have all gone a bit wrong, so she’s come back to get Luther’s help."

Wilson also said Alice is "back with a vengeance" – and is (somehow) darker than ever.

"She’s funnier than ever; she’s more lethal than ever and she and Luther get up to some dastardly things," she said. "This season we certainly see a lot more to Alice."

And if you’re wondering if we’ll get any answers as to what happened Elba said: "I think I can say, safely, that we answer that in this season."

"ALICE IS ALIVE YAY," added another.

A third said: "Yes! That was AWESOME! Helloooooo Alice!"

*Luther continues tomorrow night on BBC One at 9pm
