In episode 6 of Deadloch, Dulcie and Redcliffe are getting ready to speak with Skye O’Dwyer. Once Skye shows up, nothing goes as expected. Additionally, Cath enters just as Skye is preparing to leave and remarks, “Wouldn’t it be unbelievable if Skye was being questioned as the killer?” When Cath mentions that Skye is going home with her, Dulcie has a confused expression on her face.
Abby shows up to discuss her passing out with her partner, James. She questions whether the wood used to make the crucifix and the boat that caught fire was the same. James, as usual, plays off the things she says in an effort to use the information to his advantage.
James answers a phone call from Abby and tells her that she needs to pick up the pace for the big day. Abby says that she isn’t delaying the wedding. Thereafter, she clarifies that she is ending things with him.
As a consequence of Skye claiming to have an alibi, Dulcie has begun to search for a weakness in her story. While this is going on, news of Vanessa’s comments about believing Skye O’Dwyer is the murderer is made public. Dulcie and Redcliffe decide to resolve the situation by going to Skye’s house as a consequence.
Dulcie and Redcliffe discover that the boat they are looking at is one that was up for sale. When the pair approach the boat’s owners, they learn that Jimmy Cook purchased it. He has passed away, and they have no idea where he would have obtained the money, so it didn’t make any sense. Following that, they learn that the payment came in from Skye O’Dwyer.
Dulice and Cath have a conversation regarding their relationship. Thereafter, Dulcie finds a picture on the table and inquires about its date. Sam passed away on June 10, 2017, the very same night that Cath was aware that Skye O’Dwyer had come back to town. This day also happens to be the day of Skye’s father’s disappearance.
The Mayor rings Dulcie since Vanessa has destroyed the festival. Dulcie interrupts Vanessa and the Mayor once she shows up, causing them to fight inside the water. Several dead bodies emerge from the water at that point, leaving Dulcie shocked, while the rest of the city watches.
