As ITV’s Innocent series two finale kicked off on Thursday, viewers were still torn over who they thought the killer was.
But many fans were left reeling when Sam Wright was eventually confirmed to have murdered teenager Matty Taylor, with it unexpectedly emerging that they were having an inappropriate relationship.
The series saw the police reinvestigating the murder of Matty which had occurred five years earlier, after the release of Sam’s wife Sally Wright.
Sally, Matty’s teacher, had been wrongly convicted of the crime and also faced accusations of an inappropriate relationship herself with him.
But new evidence confirmed she was not at the scene of the crime, and that she was not spotted kissing Matty as claimed.
A second tweeted: “Oooh good plot twist!!
A third added: “OMG HE WAS HAVING AN AFFAIR WITH MATTY #innocent SHOCKED.”
Meanwhile a fourth wrote: “Bloody hell that was a twist. I love it,” as a fifth agreed: “Omg this is f***ed.”
Innocent is available now on ITV Hub.
