Mare of Easttown ending explained. Episode 7 breakdown. Recap & review with a deep dive into s01e07 “Sacrament”. Please subscribe! 👉

Mare of Easttown episode 7 just debuted on HBO and HBO Max. The series finale brought the limited series to end concluding the show's first season. Mare arrests John Ross for Erin’s murder and we learn that he is DJ’s father. Jess brought the photo of John and Erin together to the police station to confirm the paternity, and they destroyed the journals to protect her friend’s secret.

The big twist is that John, Billy, and Lori are all covering up for Ryan Ross. Ryan found out about his fathers involvement with Erin, and promised to keep it a secret if John ended it. On the night of Frank’s engagement party Ryan learned that it was still going on, and when he saw Erin was trying to meet her dad he went instead. He was just trying to scare his cousin, but she tried to take the gun away from him. As they struggled he ended up killing her.

Over the runtime of episode 7 Mare starts to notice that John is not the killer. She eventually figures out it was Ryan after getting a call from Glenn Carrol about some things going missing at his house. One of the things was the gun, the Colt Detective special that Mare knew was the same as the murder weapon.

The Mare of Easttown series finale ends when Mare and Lori come together being connected by their tremendous loss. We see how the murder and the investigation tore the town apart, and how these two best friends were able to forgive each other. Ultimately Mare is able to confront her grief over her son Kevin’s suicide, and the series ends as she’s able to go back up into the attic where he died. We know that Mare is able to move on, and there may be light at the end of the tunnel.
