When it was first broadcast, fans of the show and journalists alike praised the drama’s dark humor. In the wake of a life-altering event, the four-part series followed Max (Mark Bonnar) and Jake (Jamie Sives) as they attempted to conceal their guilt and move on with their lives.
The two men had accidentally run over and killed an elderly man on their way home from a wedding. The brothers were in danger of being exposed because there were witnesses to their immoral acts.
And while Jake was feeling guilty about what they’d done, Max was dead set on keeping the secret, even to the point of plotting to pin the blame on Jake in order to clear his own name.
There was a surprise at the end, though, when Jake betrayed his brother and got Max incarcerated. All the information you need to know about Guilt season two is right here.
Guilt Season 2 Cast
Mark Bonnar’s return as Max McCall, a guy who has hit rock bottom but is striving to preserve an illusion of control, will delight viewers in the second season.
Bonnar’s roles in MASTERPIECE’s Unforgotten and Home Fires, as well as the BBC’s Catastrophe and ITV’s Line of Duty, have earned him widespread recognition.
Emun Elliot (The Paradise), who played private investigator Kenny in the first season of Guilt, returns for the second as a more self-assured version of himself in this installment.
Kenny has sobered up, launched a business, and is even open to the idea of romance. What happened to the scrawnier McCall sibling from Season 1? Similarly, Jamie Sives (Annika) is back for a critical episode as Jake McCall.
New cast members in Guilt may look familiar to MASTERPIECE viewers. Phyllis Logan (Mrs Hughes from Downton Abbey), acting very out of character as Maggie Lynch, sets the bar high for the rest of the supporting cast.
Her husband, Roy Lynch, is played by Stuart Bowman (Grantchester’s bishop Aubrey Gray), who replaces Bill Patterson from Season 1 as a masterfully fearless crime boss.
Erin Lynch, played by Sara Vickers (Endeavour’s Joan Thursday), is alienated from her parents, and Sandy McDade (Sanditon’s Miss Hankins) is an unsettlingly enigmatic undercover police officer.
This Season of Story
Season 2 of Guilt picks up when Max, having served two years in jail, gets released and tries to put his life back together.
Max understands he must work for his former collaborator, private detective, and recovering alcoholic Kenny Burns after he is fired from his previous employment and finds out his brother Jake has moved to Chicago.
Mark comments, “He had everything in the first series, and now he has nothing in the second” (who plays Max McCall). “We witness him at his most exposed and defenseless point when he must once again rely only on his wits for survival.
At first, I believe he is only using Kenny as a stepping stone to greater things; after all, he needs to start at the bottom, and Kenny is at the bottom, so Max puts up with him.
But I think Max comes to appreciate Kenny and even admires him as time goes on. As a whole, their trip is beautiful.”
Meanwhile, across town, newcomer Erin has her own life-altering moment when an intruder breaks into her house. A split-second choice forces her to confront a part of her past she had hoped to forget and drags her into Max’s orbit.
