The Woman in the Wall Season 1 Episode 2 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

The Woman in the Wall Season 1 Episode 2

Ruth Wilson headlines this Paramount project, which is making its international debut. The Woman in the Wall focuses on the story of Lorna Brady, a victim of the Magdalene Laundries in Ireland. These “Mother and Baby Homes” were run illegally in the country, all under the nose of the State. The show is set in the small village town of Kilkinure and focuses on the homicide of Father Percy Sheehan, a person associated with these laundries.

Lorna and a few other women were victims of the Kilkinure convent, with which Percy is closely associated. Things get complicated when Lorna finds the body of Aoife Cassidy in her house, a nun who didn’t complete her final vows at the convent. But she has no idea how Aoife’s body got there, owing to Lorna’s sleepwalking habit. 

We are excited to bring you coverage of all the episodes in Season 1 with episodic recaps and preview articles for each new episode, assisting you to keep up with the unfolding drama.

What happened in Episode 1?

Lorna Brady wakes up in the middle of the road just outside Kilkinure, an idyllic small town near Dublin. Lorna is a victim of the Magdelene Laundry that was orchestrated in the local convent. Along with a few other mothers, Lorna continues to come to terms with the horrible tragedy. All these women – and countless more – had their children taken away from them as soon as they were born.

Although the others have given up, Lorna feels her girl, Agnes, is still alive. Niamh, who was born in one of the laundries, is in contact with a charity group called Atherom. They are fighting on behalf of the women to compel the State to accept culpability and get remuneration to them. In Dublin, DS Colman Akande is assigned to investigate the murder of Father Percy Sheehan.

As fate would dictate, Percy is associated with the Kilkinure convent, Akande was born in a laundry, and Lorna becomes a suspect by her own rights when she finds the body of an old woman in her house. That woman is Aofie Cassidy, who used to work at the Kilkinure convent, training to become a nun. But she never ended up completing her vows. 

Lorna is confused about how Aoife’s body reached her house. Her terrible disease of sleepwalking results in blackouts where she has no memory of her actions, even though it can seem that she is fully aware.
