The viewers of ‘Thuis’ breathed a sigh of relief on Friday evening. Just before the season finale, it became clear that Tim (Jeroen Lenaerts) would not be kept under control by drug trafficker Chris (Danny Timmermans). The police officer appears to have been working undercover for several weeks. One immediately launches the video diary ‘Tim undercover’, which can be followed on social media.
It was painful to watch the otherwise principled Tim seem completely at the mercy of Chris over the past few weeks. He passed police checks to the criminal so that he could trade in his drugs. He deliberately kept his best friend and colleague Dieter (Raf Jansen) away from the case and made false statements. Fortunately, all the pieces of the puzzle fell into place on Friday: Tim is looking for evidence to arrest Chris. A plot twist that some viewers had already predicted.
It only heightens the tension towards the season finale. One more week, the viewers of Home enjoy their favorite soap, then it’s time for the annual summer break. One promises “a lot of drama, love and tension”, in the double final episode. Does Chris mess up Tim’s daughter Hannah’s spring party?
Loyal fans will be treated to an extra series in the coming days. An episode of will be released every day (including this weekend) for the next week Tim under cover on the Instagram– and Facebook pages of the soap and – of course – on VRT NU. It is a video diary in which Tim explains what he has felt during his undercover operation. In terms of format, it is a bit reminiscent of the web series that VTM launches during the summer months for the viewers of Family†
