THE PACT has had BBC viewers hooked with it’s tale of a prank that went wrong, and then led to someone being murdered.
Jack was not short on enemies but we can reveal just who murdered him – and it’s not who you’d think.
- WARNING: The below contains MAJOR spoilers from the final episode of The Pact.
Who killed Jack on The Pact?
The six-episode series tells the story of four employees – Anna, Louie, Kat and Nancy – who work at a Welsh brewery under a cruel and manipulative boss, Jack Evans.
After a work party, the women decide to bundle Jack into a car and dump him in the woods as a prank, to teach him a lesson.
However, Jack is found dead not long after, prompting the four women to enter into a pact of silence.
But it then turns out that Jack was murdered – and a game of whodunnit ensued.These four brewery workers dumped him the woods – but did one of them kill him?[/caption]
In turns out that the murderer was in fact Anna’s wayward daughter Tasmin.
Unbeknown to her mum, she was pregnant by Jack after they had a one night stand.
When Tamsin told him she was expecting his baby, he told her he would ruin her life.
She then went to the work party with her brother to tell her mum Anna about what Jack had done and that she was pregnant.It was revealed Anna’s daughter Tamsin killed Jack[/caption]
However as they arrived they saw their mum and her friends bundling Jack into the boot of their car.
They followed them and after they had left Jack in the woods, Tamsin went to find him.
When Jack saw Tamsin there he taunted her about the baby and she snapped and suffocated him with a plastic bag.
But in the end, she didn’t go to jail – Nancy took the blame for the killing.
Who were the suspects?
Anna (Laura Fraser)Could Anna be a killer?[/caption]
Anna is the person in the know when it comes to the investigation seeing as her husband is a policeman.
It’s through him the ladies have been able to be one step ahead.
But can she actually be the person that dealt the killer blow?
Louie (Eiry Thomas)She had been looking out for her nephew but one if he pushed her too far?[/caption]
Louie has familial ties to Jack as his aunt – not that he treated her with any kind of respect as a result.
They even got in a row at the party for his reckless drug use and frivolous spending of the family cash.
Did she perhaps, in a moment of blind panic, kill him off to protect herself, and maybe even get her hands on the business?
After all, she’s struggling while he’s been bragging about his life of luxury.
Tish (Abbie Hearn)Tish has scars from her encounter with Jack[/caption]
If anyone has the most obvious reason to kill Jack, it’s Tish. After all, he attempted to sexually assault her that night, and now she has a vicious bite mark to prove it.
Saved by the girls, it appeared that she was left there while they dealt with him, but maybe curiosity got the better of her and she followed them into the woods.
Cat (Heledd Gwyn)Could the ex-con have lost it during her torment of him?[/caption]
Let’s face it, the whole prank in the first place was mainly Cat’s idea, and after seeing him attack Tish she could be feeling quite righteous.
We know she’s currently on probation, but she was also there snapping photos of Jack in his trousers-down state and seemed hellbent on revenge on him.
Did she take things too far without the others realising?
Mandy (Sophie Melville)Mandy has already been questioned by police[/caption]
Stuck-up Mandy is not anyone’s friend when it comes to the brewery, and she has been relentless in her pursuit of a promotion.
Perhaps in his coked-out state, Jack told her that her new supervisor position wasn’t actually earned, or he wanted something in return for the bump up the ladder.
Would certainly explain killing someone in a fit of rage…
Like her grandma said: “Life’s a competition.”
Nancy (Julie Hesmondhalgh)Nancy remained sober throughout the night.[/caption]
Nancy is the person that has forced the girls to keep quiet about what happened, while others wanted to go to the police.
As the driver of the evening, she quickly ducked away after they left Jack in the woods, and if he sprung himself on her, she’d have every right to attack.
There’s definitely something suspicious about her behaviour, but we can’t figure out quite what it is yet.
Arwel (Eddie Marsan)The grieving dad has been behaving oddly[/caption]
We’ll admit we didn’t even consider Arwel as a possible suspect, seeing as he was a late arrival episode one and apparently nowhere near the party.
But then his behaviour was nothing if not weird during episode two, and we can’t help but think he’s up to something.
