Nobody Has A Clue What's Going On In Dublin Murders

We're now four episodes in with Dublin Murders and everyone watching seems to be in the same boat. We're all simultaneously enthralled and yet completely and utterly lost.

Things got weird this week when a woman who looks almost identical to Detective Cassie Maddox shows up dead in the middle of Wicklow. Not only is she remarkably similar in appearance but she also has the same name as Maddox's old undercover identity: Lexie Mangan.

So either that's simply a massive coincidence or, most likely, the dead Lexie Mangan isn't really called Lexie Mangan either. To make things even more confusing, the very much alive Cassie Maddox wants to find out who killed her doppleganger, so Cassie is now pretending to be Lexie Mangan again but this time she's pretending to be the Lexie Mangan that was found dead in Wicklow (she "survived") rather than the Lexie Mangan she was originally pretending to be.

Although if the "real" Lexie was actually pretending to be the original Lexie then Maddox is now pretending to be the Lexie who was pretending to be the Lexie that Maddox was originally pretending to be.

You follow?

At the moment this is also only a mere subplot to the main story as we all try to figure out who killed Katy Devlin and what really happened to the kids in 1985. So when we add everything in together, nobody has a clue what's going.

Not to worry though, with the appearance of Eunice McMenamin in episode three - an actress most famous for her role as Fidelma in Glenroe - Mairéad Ní Chuaig has cracked the case.

All jokes aside, the reaction to the show, which is airing on BBC, RTÉ and Starz, is very positive reaction and we cannot wait to find out what happens.
