Before talking about Grantchester Season 6 Episode 1, it is only fair to go back to Season 5 for a recap. There might be many who must have missed the previous season or want a recap before they watch it. So here is a quick preview of all that happened in Season 5. The previous season took off with a new death case surfaced in front of Detective Inspector Geordie Keating and William Davenport.

Then we move to the next episode which deals with the death of a person in a deliberate hit-and-run situation. The third episode of the season gives a little bit of a personal look into the relationship of Will and Ellie who are on a date. However, their date has to be cut short after a brutal murder case surfaces. Episodes four and five dive a little deeper into the lives of the main characters, mostly Geordie, Will, and Leonard.
We see them fighting their fears and problems in their lives. They struggle to make better decisions as those decisions will have an impact on how their lives turn around. We also see Will thinking about Ellie and not being able to decide how he feels about her. As we move on to the next and final episode in the season, we witness another murder.
