Bloodlands on BBC One has captivated viewers with its curvy storyline, and now fans are convinced they know Goliath’s true identity.
The crime drama starring James Nesbitt centers on a serial killer named Goliath who wreaked havoc in Northern Ireland in 1998.
And now, after three episodes, viewers think they know who Goliath really is – and it’s not Tom Brannick.
*** WARNING: CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR THE EPISODE THREE BLOOD LANDS ***
What happened last night on Bloodlands on BBC One?
On last night’s episode (March 7th), viewers watched DCI Tom Brannick (Nesbitt) desperately try to frame his boss Jackie Twomey for the murder of Adam Corry.
At the end of the second episode, Brannick shot Corry dead because he had the evidence to link him to the Goliath murders.

While it looked like Brannick was revealed as the Goliath, viewers now have a different theory.
They believe Brannick is covering his wife Emma, the specialist who was also missing in 1998.
Therefore, viewers are convinced that Emma is actually Goliath.
The woman is alive and she is Goliath #bloodlands 🤣

I think Brannick frames Tommy because he thinks he’s Goliath, but I think Goliath is actually his wife. Everyone says “he” to Goliath, but why can’t “he” be a “she”? #Bloodlands

Therefore, DCS Twomey worked with Special Branch during the editing portion of his career. He knows Brannick’s wife was Goliath, so he tried to stop him digging. Unless Brannick is actually Goliath and killed her and buried her elsewhere? #Bloodlands

I’m saying this and I’m probably wrong, but Goliath is Tom’s wife. My thoughts don’t know what it is like or where it is hiding. But I think so#Bloodlands
