Dickie is then revealed to be her son, the baby that was put up for adoption. Loretta meticulously researched Dickie’s life in the newspapers and proudly compiled press cuttings in her book.

This explains why she’s obsessed with Ben. In reality, she was only ever passionate about Dickie, Ben’s brother and manager.

Loretta writes a confessional letter to Dickie at the end of the episode, but she panics when she can’t find her news cuttings book. Loretta instantly suspects Oliver of stealing it.

During the sitzprobe rehearsal, Mabel approached Oliver and Charles. She informed them that she went ahead and filmed an episode because they had no interest in carrying out the inquiry with her.

She had often implored them to take things seriously and assist her in finding Ben Glenroy’s murderer, but they were always preoccupied with something else, and they took Mabel for granted.

Mabel wanted someone to go into the interrogation room and listen to what everyone had to say once Detective Williams arrived. Despite their assurances that they would do the necessary, Mabel had little faith in Charles and Oliver.

It was the last chance for Charles and Oliver to show her they were genuine about everything and that she shouldn’t leave them. Oliver knew Detective Williams enjoyed seeing Charles disgrace himself, and she wouldn’t pass up the chance to see him act if she thought he was about to make a mistake.

Oliver set the bait, and Williams took it as predicted. She arrived at the theatre to see Charles play, and that’s when Oliver went inside the room where Williams was questioning everyone and installed the GoPro camera that Tobert gave Mabel.

Through it, Charles and Mabel could capture all of the people’s testimony, and Mabel couldn’t believe it when she heard it. The team resolved to put the past behind them and work together to solve the murder mystery.
