Season one of Dublin Murders has finished and - unsurpisingly for those who read In The Woods - we still don't know what the hell happened to those kids in the woods in 1985!
Were they attacked by a wolf? Did Adam actually kill them? Are Cassie and Frank secretly the two kids? Did Varys offer them up to Daenerys? We want answers, goddamit!
What we did discover, however, was who killed Katy Devlin. Although, some of us figured it out a couple of episodes ago [insert dickhead smug face emoji here]. Damien and Rosalind did it. Of course they did it! Always suspect the helpful person.
Of course, it wasn't the only massive plot twist in the finale, with asshole Rosalind revealing to everyone who Rob Reilly really is. Can that lad not catch a break?
The show closed with him driving away from the woods, none the wiser about what happened to him and his friends on that fateful day, 30 years ago.
Fuck this, I'm gonna have to go to them woods myself and find out what happened #DublinMurders

I feel trapped in my own mental Knocknaree after that ending. Looking forward to season 2 and gunning for a Maddox Reilly reunion #DublinMurders

With so many questions still to answer it will be interesting to see if we get a Dublin Murders season 2, and if we do, will it remain focused on this mystery or move on to other storylines from the Tana French novel series.
Given the comments of the show's screenwriter, Sarah Phelps, we can be hopeful that the answer to both questions is a resounding yes. When asked about the possibility of a second season, she told the Radio Times:
“Please God yeah! And season three, I’d like. Cover the whole thing, cover the whole period of that time for Ireland.”
“I hope we get to do more because I know what happens in the final scene.”
Nidge did it, didn't he!?
