Mare of Easttown Episode 4 Spoilers

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room – Mare has been put on administrative leave. Although, her actions warranted the reprimand since she did plant drugs in Carrie’s car. In episode 4, light could be shed on the aftermath of this event – how Mare copes with it, how her family reacts to it, and how Colin will further the investigation. After all, in episode 3, the two detectives uncover pertinent physical evidence related to Erin’s murder.

But the buck probably won’t stop there since Mare’s suspension will also affect the custody battle. The whole reason Mare tries to implicate Carrie is to retain custody of Drew. Even though the Chief has said he will talk to the DA, there are going to be repercussions for this decision of hers. Talking about family, in episode 3, Dylan finds out that he did not father DJ, and he starts to push the child away. Episode 4 could also give us more clues about the burning question – who fathered Erin’s child?

Then, there’s the fact that Colin will now be handling the investigation without Mare. It will be interesting to see how he proceeds with it, especially when Deacon Mark Burton enters the picture. Needless to say, episode 3 casts enough suspicion on the priest. One wrong move on Colin’s end could lead to Burton lawyering up and protecting himself. Also, the motive still needs to be ascertained, and we may learn more about the events that transpired before Erin’s death.
