Mare of Easttown Season 1: Explanation of the ending! Killer, future and more.


Mare of Easttown is available on OCS! If you want to know the explanation for the end of Season 1, read on! Mare of Easttown has already been a long and sad journey. Like so many other sad murder streaks, the finale begins with a pretty clear suspect, followed by the real killer being revealed. Which leads to an even greater tragedy. But all the credit of Mare is for having found a way to give an impression of freshness, thanks to the depth of this small community that has developed over the previous six episodes. To find out if a season 2 is coming soon, read this.

We pick up where we left off in the last episode: Mare is in the woods, looking for Billy and John Ross. While the chef, back on duty, is confronted with a shocking photo that changes everything. The show doesn't hesitate to reveal the contents of this photo: A selfie taken by Erin, with a shirtless John Ross asleep in bed behind her. As many have guessed, Billy's “confession” from last week was a cover for his brother, who was, in fact, the one who committed a minor hijacking with his cousin's daughter and therefore the real father of DJ Low blow, John Ross! We tell you all about the end of Season 1 of Mare of Easttown!


At the police station, Ryan details that fateful night and the events leading up to the murder. Lori knew that her son had killed Erin, but she naturally chose to remain silent to protect her son. Ryan is sent to a juvenile detention center, and Lori lashes out at Mare because she believes the police officer is partly responsible for her family's breakdown.

Considering Ryan is barely a teenager, this is a shocking twist. But what strikes even more strongly is Ryan's motivation: he acted to protect his family in the best way he knew how. That's not to say Ryan thought killing Erin was his only option. The gunshot was just an accident in his case. He just wanted to scare Erin into staying away from John.

Ryan may not have understood the gravity of John's incestuous and pedophile acts. But he does know one thing: his mother was incredibly upset the first time John had an affair. Ryan remembers how this period affected them all. But especially the way she affected his mother, whom he loves very much. Ryan feels that if John's infidelity comes to fruition, his parents, and by extension, his family, might not get over it. Ryan then clings to anything and decides he has to keep Erin away from her father if the Rosses are to be together.

He thinks that by scaring Erin all communication between her and John will cease, which means Lori won't find out about the affair. But when Ryan comes face to face with Erin, Erin tries to snatch the weapon from him, but the encounter is fatal. After all, Ryan is just a kid and doesn't even understand how a gun works. Ryan is not a sociopath or psychopath who has no regard for other people's lives. He never intended to kill Erin. Ryan even went so far as to tell the police the truth to end this nightmare once and for all.


Once again, life goes on. Pastor Mark, who has been released from prison, preaches to his flock to find a way to recover from the tragedies that have befallen the community. Lori and her other children visit Ryan in detention, where he says he's taking a writing class that he enjoys very much. Siobhan decides to go to Berkeley, and his family sends him down in tears. Mare finds the courage to go see Lori after ignoring her calls and texts for a long time. Lori lets her in, even going so far as to brew tea for them ... then, in a beautifully acted and almost wordless scene, she collapses into Mare's arms, her grief pouring out on her.

Perhaps it is this reconnection with her friend that helps Mare take a further step towards healing. She wakes up one morning, and for the first time in what must have seemed like an eternity, she unfolds the steps of the attic of her house and climbs into space where she lost her son. She is finally able to face it.

And this is where Mare of Easttown leaves us, after an emotional journey that turned out to be far less about thrillers than about family, loss and learning about life.
