Video: New Love/Hate trailers reveal the heat is on Nidge

Gang leader Nidge is under pressure from all sides in the fourth series of RTE's 'Love/Hate'

AS we all know, the highly anticipated fourth series of RTE’s ‘Love/Hate’ is back this Sunday.

And RTE have given us a sneak peek as to what to expect.

The broadcaster posted a series of trailers last night, confirming what we all suspected – Nidge is under real pressure.

The first trailer shows the unravelling gang leader demanding information from a corrupt garda about another officer who is on his tail.

And it just gets worse for Nidge.

The next trailer sees him having an argument with wife Trish.

He tells her his phone is being tapped, he’s busy and can’t talk.

Feisty Trish tells him she  is ringing about their son Warren’s upcoming communion and that his mother is getting him a holy medal as opposed to Rosary beads. Nidge shouts at her before hanging up. The viewer can then see that he is in bed with a prostitute.

Another short trailer sees an anxious Elmo talking to his father. While not mentioning names, he said he is worried about being seen as a “rat”.

Dissidents Lizzie and Dano also feature.

The pair are seen discussing plans for an unnamed character – Dano appears to be telling Lizzie, who shot Darren dead at the end of the third series, to shoot someone once the gardai are away.

And fans will also be left guessing as to the fate of Tommy and Siobhan.

Siobhan, a niece of gang leader Nidge, is seen talking to Detective Inspector Mick Moynihan.

He tells her she’s not under arrest – but adds that they can both help her boyfriend Tommy.

At the end of the last series, viewers saw Tommy beaten to a pulp by Nidge. He remained in a coma in the last episode.

While Siobhan tells the garda at first, she won’t say anything, she begins to waiver before fearfully adding; “But Nidge will know.”

Hundreds of thousands of viewers are expected to tune in on Sunday for the first episode of the award-winning gangland drama.

It will be screened on RTE One at 9.30pm.

And if the trailers are anything to go by, it will be unmissable.
