The upcoming episode of "A Murder at the End of the World" on Hulu, titled "Crime Seen," holds the potential for significant revelations, possibly unveiling the actual killer in the present timeline. While Hulu has kept details under wraps, the synopsis teases Darby uncovering a secret retreat within the retreat, and a face-to-face encounter with the Silver Doe Killer in the past alongside Bill.
Currently, Lee Anderson
emerges as a lead suspect due to her knowledge of the retreat and the potential to orchestrate perfect crimes. However, other residents like David and Oliver remain viable suspects.
Another intriguing possibility is the involvement of staff members, such as Marius or Todd, with hidden motives. Given co-creator Brit Marling's penchant for twists
, viewers should brace themselves for potential surprises in the upcoming episodes.
