If you’re just like us and want to know more, then fret not, since we have got your back.

Mare of Easttown Episode 2 Spoilers

In episode 2, we’re bound to get more insight into the workings of Mare Sheehan, who is clearly the one that everyone relies on in the town. Her work ethic is something we have already come across, but her personal life is rife with grief and disappointments. After all, in episode 1, we see the ghost of her son, Kevin, who took his own life. This is one narrative thread that will likely be pulled upon in the upcoming episode.

But getting to the more obvious stuff, the murder investigation of Erin McMenamin is going to take center stage. The whodunnit element will really kick in from episode 2 onwards, and we expect that the disappearance of Katie Bailey has some connection to this case. Mare will have to work hard to figure out who wants to disrupt peace in their small town while also battling her own inner demons.

Given that the episode is titled ‘Fathers,’ it is safe to presume that it will heavily feature Erin’s verbally abusive father and her ex-boyfriend, who himself has fathered a child with her. The effects of the murder on the small and tight-knit community will also be felt. In fact, we suspect that Brianna might come under suspicion sometime soon as well. She was one of the last people to have seen Erin and even hit her due to feelings of rage and jealousy. This would also give Brianna motive.

Last but not least, we also feel as though the “suspicious” man for episode 1 will make a comeback soon. The elderly neighbors have already raised the alarm bells regarding this persona, and Mare even sees his shadowy figure once. However, we still don’t really know anything about him. It could be the case that episode 2 seeks to shed some light on this evidently clandestine villain.
