At the outset of this episode, the lifeless body of Trent Latham is discovered, sparking outrage throughout Deadloch and Dulcie and Cath’s hometown. Although Dulcie once worked as a detective in her past life, Cath reminds her to give Cath time alone with Dulcie now. Commissioner Hastings requests Dulcie to manage the situation until Eddie from Darwin arrives on day 2. Based upon this description given by Commissioner Hastings, she assumes Eddie to be male, but she is taken aback upon seeing Eddie walk into her office! She finds herself completely taken aback by this unexpected appearance of Eddie!

Eddie arrives to find Dulcie and her eager subordinate carrying out police work. Unfortunately, Eddie discredits their efforts and instead draws her own conclusions despite contrary evidence from the inquiry. For the entire pilot episode, Eddie pins all blame for Trent’s death on Gavin while Dulcie learns from medical examiner Rod Dixon that the body was discovered on the same beach with a missing tongue, leading Dulcie to make connections between his demise and Trent’s. By the end of the episode, Gavin Latham had also met an unfortunate end, similarly ending in shock like his sibling’s death!

Eddie appears eager to flee town despite an increasing pattern of murders, resisting accepting evidence. Eddie suspects the involvement of local drug rings in these killings and suspects Phil McGangus as one such person. Dulcie cautions Eddie against accusing Phil McGangus directly; although not innocent, it does not make him saintly.

Eddie learns of Sam O’Dwyer’s mysterious disappearance several years prior. Video footage reveals an altercation between Eddie and one of the Latham brothers on a boat with its distinctive paint job belonging to Sam O’Dwyer; Eddie recognizes him from this footage during which Sam is present during an altercation, identified as him by Eddie herself. Near the end of the episode, Sam’s boat bursts into flames, prompting Eddie to pursue a mysterious masked figure that eventually leads her into a ditch – something neither of the Latham brothers has done before!

Episode 3 opens with another corpse being found, having been deceased for an extended period. Dulcie recognizes it as Sam’s, making a connection that Eddie denies despite strong evidence suggesting that serial murderers could be behind these killings.

As its plot unfolds, ‘Deadloch’ keeps viewers gripped to their seats with its riveting storyline that unravels a web of crimes in and around Deadloch.

Deadloch’s humour is unusual and darkly humorous, while its mystery elements follow traditional whodunit form. Dulcie’s quest for confirmation about a serial killer begins when she approaches a profiler who initially hesitates to provide information. As the series reaches its climactic moments, Dulcie discovers Phil and Eddie on Phil’s boat after learning their location; during an intense scene, they find Phil bleeding heavily before fleeing from it, cursing vehemently before fleeing away from it all!

Eddie’s past becomes gradually clear throughout the episode, giving insight into her motivations for quickly closing the case. At this point, Abby finally appears and is met by her former fiance, who credits Abby’s theory about using double-bladed knives to remove victims’ tongues as proof against Eddie.

Dulcie soon realizes that her killer is on board the boat and realizes that the only way for them to reach it would be via drugging; none of their victims had defensive wounds to defend against being drugged. Eddie requested toxicology reports on all victims because she suspected they might be part of a drug ring associated with the football club; three individuals (Trent, Gavin, and Rod) tested positive for Pentobarbital. Abby and Dulcie discussed historical patterns regarding poison usage by female murderers – providing further evidence that indicates their target may actually be female.

“Deadloch” continues to draw audiences into its captivating blend of dark humour and gripping mystery as its plot thickens and new revelations emerge with each episode.

After carefully listening to Abby’s insights, Dulcie apologizes for confronting her aggressively but emphasizes the need to remain vigilant as serial killers remain on the loose.

Coincidentally, Abby arrives just as they’re engaged in this vital debate and raises a salient point regarding the absence of defensive marks on victims before being placed in the boat.

Abby offers an intriguing theory: the victims were drugged before being lowered from the ship into the water. She proves this point by showing how recent toxicology data confirms their suspicions: narcotics were present in all victims’ systems, and high doses of Pentobarbital were administered intravenously.

Dulcie uses this new piece of evidence to reach her own conclusion; she suspects the killer is likely female due to their less frequent use of poison as a method in serial killings by men.

Redcliffe finally acknowledges and endorses Dulcie’s investigative methods, representing an important shift in their partnership and approach toward solving the case.

As the plot thickens and characters investigate further into the mystery, ‘Deadloch’ keeps viewers on the edge of their seats with suspenseful drama that seamlessly blends humour with suspense.
