Mare of Easttown Season 1, Episode 6, “Sore Must Be the Storm” premieres tonight on HBO at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT after back-to-back new episodes of In Treatment, which is finally returning for its rebooted fourth season with Uzo Aduba. The latest episode of this crime drama will run for 59 minutes and is rated TV-MA for adult content, adult language, and violence

Apart from airing on HBO, the episode will air simultaneously on HBO Latino with encore presentations following throughout the night, beginning at 12:35 a.m. ET on HBO. The episode will also be available on-demand for HBO Max subscribers on Monday, May 24.

In the last episode of Mare of Easttown, Mare and Colin got a valuable tip from one of Mare’s old contacts that led them straight to Bennie’s Tavern, where we know Katie Bailey and Missy were being held.

Unfortunately, things moved incredibly fast, resulting in the tavern owner and prime suspect shooting Det. Zabel point-blank in the head, killing him instantly. After, Mare and the suspect got into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse which ended with Mare, narrowly, surviving and killing him just as backup finally shows up.

What’s happening in Mare of Easttown Season 1, Episode 6?

Despite what Colin and Mare discovered, I have a feeling that the tavern owner isn’t the person behind Erin’s murder, meaning there is still more story to unravel. Luckily there are two episodes left, although tonight’s episode is the penultimate installment before next week’s finale.

Mare will struggle to cope with Colin’s death this week, but on the plus side, the chief is giving her another chance at solving the case, meaning she won’t be on suspension any longer (not that it made much of a difference when she was).

Read the official synopsis below:

"After a heroic rescue lands her in the hospital, Mare awakes to the unshakeable pain of losing a friend. Then, given a second chance by Chief Carter, Mare reevaluates old suspects, which leads to a shocking clue. Meanwhile, Richard visits Mare in hopes of deepening their relationship, and Lori confides in her best friend about recent family troubles."

Next. Is Bennie's Tavern a real place?. dark
