It’s safe to say that in a show filled with plenty of characters that are almost too good-looking, it becomes increasingly challenging to figure out who’s a good guy and who’s a bad guy, which is exactly what the writers of Guilt want from their viewers. The recurring theme on this show is that everyone’s a suspect, and the third episode continues with that theme, as nearly every character seems like they’re up to something shady.
After last week’s cliffhanger, the detectives are left to investigate another attempted murder, this time of Professor Linley, whose wife tells them it was Molly’s brother — but of course, it was actually her. Throw into the mix Roz’s attempt at blackmail via Molly’s phone that was foiled by Stan’s attempt to blackmail her back, Prince Theo’s taunts and Grace trying to redeem herself in the public eye, and there’s a slew of new sagas unfolding across the pond.
One key player that came up out of nowhere this week was none other than Detective Sergeant Bruno, who is initially cracking the case at Linley’s home, trying to figure out just how bad the late professor’s indiscretions really were. Bruno is quickly becoming a fan favorite — but he was able to put the pieces of the puzzle together a little too quickly on Linley’s guilty wife, and we learned this week that there’s more to him than meets the eye.
Bruno arrives home after a long day to find Prince Theo in his kitchen, whipping up dinner (seriously!) as we’ve learned that Molly was paid off by someone to hide her romance with his royal highness. Molly was also supposedly paid to remain on birth control, which is troubling given that she was pregnant at the time of her death, and Theo believes it was his.
Bruno plays along with it when he finds Theo in his kitchen, but he can’t hide how troubled he is when Theo says, “You can lie to your colleagues, you can lie to your boss, you can even lie to your mum, but you will never lie to me.” Theo then tells Bruno, “You keep my secrets, I’ll keep yours.”
What secrets is the prince referring to? Seems we’ll have to stay tuned to find out.
What do you think? Do we need to keep an eye out for Bruno’s shady ways?
