Guilt, an episode revolving around the regrets and remorse each character struggles with, brings some of the biggest shocks on Tell Me A Story yet.

When speaking of guilt, it’s impossible not to think of Tell Me A Story’s resident bartender, and the youngest of the “three little pigs”, Eddie. He has struggled to come to terms with what happened during the bank heist since the pilot episode. He’s a bit like the scrappy runt of a puppy litter.
