We are now past the halfway point of Easttown mare HBO’s seven-part miniseries in which Kate Winslet plays a detective investigating a series of disappearances, murders and other crimes in a small town on the outskirts of Delaware County, Pa. – and its central mystery seems cloudier than ever. Created by Brad Ingelsby and directed by Craig Zobel, the series began with Winslet’s Mare Sheehan, still haunted by the disappearance of Katie Bailey, the daughter of her former high school basketball teammate Dawn – not to mention the son Mare has. lost. suicide, Mare split from husband Frank, Frank’s seemingly happy new relationship, and other issues.

Yet at times Mare seems to be the only one who really keeps order in Easttown, a place where everyone knows and / or relates to each other and where old resentments are never far from the surface. The people of Easttown may not all like Mare, who never does much to make her love her, but they do. And with that confidence comes the burden of trying to turn things around when they go wrong, like when – in the shadow of Katie Bailey – a young woman named Erin McMenamin finds herself dead in a creek.

Who killed Erin McMenamin? Does this have something to do with Katie Bailey? Four episodes in, Easttown mare threw clue after clue, but rather than clearing up the mystery, most muddied the waters. (Red herring-ed up the water?) It’s probably not fair to say that the culprit could be anyone – unless, say, Chief Carter has a dark side that we just don’t have. seen again – but it could be almost nobody. (There is also a real possibility, as Mare suggested at one point, that we are dealing with separate crimes.) Since we are closer to the end of the story than to its beginning, it now seems be the right time to set odds. as to who did it (although some of them are extremely long).

Drew Sheehan (Izzy King): 100 000 contre 1

Drew might inadvertently murder his turtle, but seems incapable of committing the horrific crimes at the heart of the series.

Detective Sergeant Mare Sheehan (Kate Winslet): 10,000 to 1
Look, obviously Mare didn’t. But here’s the problem Easttown mare: It seems like the kind of show where everyone could be the killer, so we can’t exclude anyone. (It’s not Mare, however.)

Dawn Bailey (Enid Graham): 7500 contre 1

Photo: HBO

There is a lot of suffering in this show, but is anyone suffering more than Dawn? She lost her daughter (but maybe not in the way she thought she lost her daughter), she is battling cancer, she has to meditate on dusting at the convenience store where she works and she is injured by a brutal act of cat fishing committed by Freddie Hanlon in a desperate attempt to make money for feed his addiction. It seems very unlikely to be involved.

Beth Hanlon (Chinasa Ogbuagu), Helen Fahey (Jean Smart), Chief Carter (John Douglas Thompson), Officier Ronald Trammel (Justin Hurtt-Dunkley), Becca (Madeline Weinstein), Geoff (Drew Scheid): 5000 contre 1
Easttown mare liberally spreads suspicion on a group of characters, but some seem pretty sure they cross the list of potential murderers. It is probably not Beth, Mare’s friend, who seems extremely sweet. She is generous with her time and cares deeply for Freddie no matter what horrific acts his drug habits lead him to do. It is almost certainly not Helen, although she Is have secrets, even if they don’t seem to go far beyond hiding ice cream in a bag of frozen vegetables. Chief Carter appears to be a tough guy, who’s willing to look away from Mare’s transgressions, but only if the two of them can figure out how fucked up she’s been and get some serious advice. And he’s certainly not the blood-phobic rookie officer Trammel, unless he fakes his delicacy very well. Becca clearly needs to stop partying so loud – it hurts her relationship with Siobhan and doesn’t help their band’s chances of signing a recording deal – but she doesn’t seem like the kill and kidnap type. Ditto for his comrade Geoff. He knows where the weed is, but probably doesn’t know where the bodies are buried (so to speak).

DJ Anne Harris (Kiah McKirnan): 3000 to 1

Speaking of Siobhan, the killer is also probably not the “older woman” she starts dating after she dumps Becca. But what do we really know about DJ Anne? Mare is at least a little mistrustful of her when she arrives at the scene of Helen’s accident, but that’s probably just because she’s never seen her before. Probably.

Siobhan Sheehan (Angourie Rice): 1000 contre 1
As long as we are talking about Siobhan, she has been among the last people to see Erin alive. Could it be her? She could be motivated by… well, nothing that we saw. And she probably couldn’t disguise herself as the tall, sturdy figure carrying a victim to a bar at the end of the fourth episode. It seems prudent enough to cross her off the list.

Kenny McMenamin (Patrick Murney): 300 to 1

Photo: HBO

A relative of the Rosses, Kenny appears to be a total jerk but certainly not Erin’s murderer. This does not mean that he incapable of the murderer; he’s trying to kill Dylan, after all. He’s just not very good at it.

Lori Ross (Julianne Nicholson), Billy Ross (Robert Tann), John Ross (Joe Tippett): 250 against 1

Photo: HBO

Can we take out the entire Ross Clan? Probably. They seem like a support group and Lori seems to really take care of Mare no matter what Mare does to push her away. But are they too much favorable? To be determined.

Dylan Hunchey (Jack Mulhern): 200 contre 1

Photo: HBO

Dylan, of course, had brought him in. He was both cruel to Erin before she died and let Brianna have him against her in the woods. Eff this guy. He has even seems thinking about killing Erin’s child with a pillow before hugging and comforting him, which gave the show a rare moment of sweetness. But still: Eff this guy.

Brianna (Mackenzie Lansing), Jess (Ruby Cruz): 175 contre 1

Photo: HBO

And while we’re at it, Brianna sucks too. But while she could have helped Erin on her way to death, she almost certainly didn’t kill her. On the opposite end of the spectrum of evil beings towards Erin, Jess seems just as unlikely.

Frank Sheehan (David Denman), Faye (Kate Arrington): 150 contre 1

Photo: HBO

Why did Frank lies to Mare about Erin? He is not the father of her child, but he was far from open about their relationship. And what does Faye know? We never really have his thoughts on this revelation beyond a few hard-to-analyze reaction shots. Maybe Mare’s irrational hatred for her is not irrational, just the result of good instincts.

Freddie Hanlon (Dominique Johnson), Carrie Layden (Sosie Bacon): 125 contre 1

Photo: HBO

Freddie appears to be more pathetic than malicious. And even if he focused on the murder and kidnapping, he probably couldn’t pull himself together long enough to pull off the crimes. (Still, this cat fishing took a bit of planning, even if it failed miserably.) Carrie also appears to be a victim of drug addiction rather than a murderer. Mare’s flashback to the moment Carrie and Kevin terrorized her while he was plagued by addictions is truly frightening: a tour de force, Mare is gunned down by her loved ones. But whatever horror she has in her, Carrie doesn’t seem like the murderous type.

The Peeping Tom that we haven’t heard much about since the first episode: (100 to 1)
Did you forget this guy? He’s still out there, maybe serving in the wrong direction, maybe waiting to resurface.

Father Dan Hastings (Neal Huff): (50 to 1)

Photo: HBO

A cousin of Mare and Helen’s partner in drinking Manhattans, Father Dan seems to be the kind of down-to-earth man of God who makes going to church tolerable. But how much of an accomplice was he in covering up the charges against Deacon Mark? Apparently not this partner in crime. He is quite worried when he learns that the allegations could come to light. But he’s still part of the system, and who knows what other cover-ups he’s come across over the years.

Someone we haven’t met (?): (30 to 1)
Is Easttown mare play just like a mystery? With three episodes remaining, it’s still possible for the show to throw a curveball into making the killer someone we’ve never met before. (Or, alternatively, revealing that it was someone like the duck pie waiter we met briefly. I can’t rule that out. I can’t rule out anyone.) In a way, the Episode Four comes closer than any other to revealing the culprit by showing the tall, beefy man driving a van kidnapping the victims and bringing them to a dilapidated tavern. On the other hand: Really? Does anyone we have met fit this description?

Detective Colin Zabel (Evan Peters): (15 to 1)
Detective Colin Zabel rushed into Easttown like a breath of fresh air, eager to help Mare (initially reluctant), then just as eager to take her to town. He’s smart and sweet and kind to his mother… oh no! He’s probably hiding a dark secret, isn’t he?

Deacon Mark Burton (James McArrdle): (5 to 1)

Photo: HBO

In addition to lying, lying and lying about his relationship with Erin, Deacon Mark threw Erin’s missing bicycle over a bridge in the middle of the night. He’s obviously super guilty – or would be if the most obvious suspect was ever the actual author of this kind of mysterious story. Yet the evidence against him is pretty overwhelming.

Richard Ryan (Guy Pearce): (3 contre 1)

Photo: HBO

Richard is a charming stranger who has been a bit awkward in dating Mare, of course, but who has done nothing to raise suspicion about his involvement in the Easttown crimes. He’s played by Guy Pearce, the show’s most prominent guest star, and he mostly hangs out on the fringes of the story, signing books, hoping to spend more time with Mare, being a teacher, and looking rather innocent. Through The murder she wrote rules, all of the above makes him the most likely suspect. (The only thing that would make him Suite suspicious by those criteria would be if he won an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for a half-forgotten film released in 1954.) Easttown mare play by The murder she wrote rules? Who knows? By then, next week, the odds could have changed drastically.
