Mare Of Easttown has developed quite into an HBO crime drama which the network is known for. There are several developments in the focused plot or the main case of the story. The murder of Erin McMenamin obviously. So recently, there are a few things the show took note of. We don’t know if Dylan is the real father of DJ. Plus Frank is suspected of having an affair with Erin. So he basically lied, and now both Frank and Dylan have to take a paternity test. Furthermore, the police finally found the crime scene where murder could have taken place. Most importantly, the deal with Priest Deacon Mark Burton, who used to talk to Erin. It was revealed he has her bike and has something to do with the murder as well.
The end of the previous episode saw Mare being suspended after Carrie accused her of planting drugs on her.
