What happened at the end of Innocent season 2? 

Karen’s DNA found on Matty’s coat 

Karen Moss (Priyanga Burford) remained in custody as it was believed she had something to do with the murder.

There was a strand of her hair found on Matty’s coat which led her to confess to the police that there was a row in the street.

DCI Mike Braithwaite (Shaun Dooley) remained uncertain about whether or not she had something to do with his death.

He still felt that she had something to hide but wasn’t sure what.

Bethany vandalises Matty’s shrine 

Bethany Moss (Amy-Leigh Hickman) left her house to return to school, trying to hide her face from the CCTV by having her hood up.

Moments later, Bethany was seen with a hammer in her hand, breaking the framed picture of Matty.

She destroyed the shrine the drama department had made up for him and the poster of the last play he had starred in.

The police arrested her shortly after for the vandalism so both Bethany and her mum were being held in custody.

A confession is made

To DCI Braithwaite’s surprise, Bethany confessed to Matty’s murder while she was being held.

She insisted that her mum wasn’t capable of hurting someone and described how she had stabbed Matty in the neck with the broken bottle.

Karen didn’t believe that she did it but wasn’t able to give her an alibi either as she didn’t see her that evening.

However, Bethany didn’t commit the murder and she only said so to clear her mum’s name.

Matty’s killer is revealed 

The Amazon gift cards linked Matty to Sam Wright (Jamie Bamber) who had given them to him as a gift.

At the same time, Sally had discovered a message on the back of the framed photograph Bethany had destroyed.

It was a message Matty had written to Sam, saying how he was going to tell Sally about their affair.

Sam confessed to his wife that he was gay and had been having numerous one-night stands with men over the years but did develop feelings for Matty.

But he wasn’t willing to come out and felt he had to stop Matty from telling Sally what was going on and so killed him.

Sam was taken away by the police, leaving Sally heartbroken that their marriage had been a lie.

Sally leaves Keswick 

Innocent season two ended on a positive note for the rest of the main cast.

John Taylor (Andrew Tiernan) was pouring his beers down the sink, signalling that he had given up drinking.

DCI Braithwaite put away his deceased daughter’s raincoat so he can try and start moving on with his life.

Karen and Bethany shared a hug before she left for school so it seems they are on good terms.

Sally told DCI Braithwaite that she was moving to Ripon for a fresh start and was moving her mum to a different care home so they could be together.

She also said about her and the detective meeting up again for a pizza – could there be romance in both of their futures?

Innocent is available to watch on ITV Hub.
