Actually, Donna is a season 4 villain who came back at the start of season 6.
The season started with Jimmy mourning the loss of his mother and getting a call about the cold-blooded murder of local lawyer Alex Galbraith. Throughout the season, we saw Jimmy on a rollercoaster ride of mixed emotions. He was worried about his father’s dementia and on a quest to solve the murder mystery. Also, he was concerned about Donna’s return to the town.
Did Donna Set Up Duncan And Jimmy?
When Donna came back from jail on medical grounds, Duncan went to visit her out of sympathy. As expected, she manipulated Duncan. Nevertheless, it was all nothing but part of her revenge on Duncan. In Shetland season 6 ending, Duncan understood her ulterior motive, and he helped her die by suicide. Nevertheless, things became difficult when it was revealed that Donna had written to her lawyer about Duncan pressuring her to die by suicide. Even she wrote that he had threatened to kill her himself. Not just that, she mentioned that Jimmy Perez was in the plan too.
At the Shetland season 6 ending, we see that Duncan visited the police station and confessed and told his story to save Jimmy. Nevertheless, nothing goes as planned, and Jimmy gets arrested. And then season 6 ended. The creators left the audience in suspense, and everything is now uncertain about Jimmy and Duncan’s fate.
It is expected that we will get to see the potential love interest for Jimmy in season 7. The newcomer Meg Pattison (played by Lucianne McEvoy) will play a crucial part in the upcoming season. Also, we see that at the end of the Shetland season 6, we see smart Tosh getting pregnant with her first child.
