‘White House Farm’ recap: What happened in Episode 2?

White House Farm continued in the UK tonight.

Written by The Slap creator Kris Mrksa, ITV’s new six-part true crime drama tells the true story of the fateful night in Summer 1985 when five members of the same family were murdered at a farmhouse in Essex, England.

The cast includes Freddie Fox (Parade’s End), Mark Addy (Downton Abbey movie), Stephen Graham (Line of Duty), Gemma Whelan (Gentleman Jack), Amanda Burton (Silent Witness) and Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones).

Here’s a plot recap for the second episode, which aired at 9pm on Wednesday 15th January 2020 on ITV:

Stan and his number two Mick Clark speak to Jeremy and relatives of the murdered family, but their picture of what really happened that night at White House Farm remains inconclusive.

The twins’ father Colin Caffell is devastated by his loss, and is initially comforted by Jeremy.

Post-mortem examinations reveal nothing to contradict the murder-suicide theory.

Meanwhile, relative Ann Eaton cannot believe Sheila was responsible, and discusses her growing suspicions with her brother David Boutflour.

They raise their concerns with Taff, who dismisses them angrily.
