Stephen King Has a Theory About the Killer in ‘Mare of Easttown’
Mare of Easttown, HBO’s riveting miniseries, kept fans on the tip of their seats after the penultimate episode, nervously wondering who Erin McMenamin’s killer is. Stephen King, the master of horror and mystery, appears to be a major admirer of the show. In a recent tweet, he hinted that he might know who the murderer is.
The field of murder suspects is narrowed in Episode 6 of ‘Mare of Easttown.’
Mare of Easttown has been compiling a list of likely suspects in Erin’s (Cailee Spaeny) murder investigation since the beginning of the season. That list was whittled down to just a few in Episode 6, “Sore Must Be the Storm.”
Billy Ross (Robbie Tann) tells his brother John (Joe Tippett) that he killed their niece in a horrifying scene. The confession, on the other hand, feels forced and sleazy, owing to the way John insists Billy utter it.
By default, the winner. Is it too soon? Yes, it’s far too soon.

Meanwhile, Dylan’s(Jack Mulhern) alibi falls apart when Brianna (Mackenzie Lansing) reveals he was not home on the night of Erin’s murder. And Jess (Ruby Cruz) hands Chief Carter (John Douglas Thompson) a mysterious picture that may implicate the killer.
