Whodunnit? The Undoing came to a thrilling close on Monday, where it was it was revealed who murdered Elena (Matilda De Angelis)

'My absolute favourite piece of obscure pop culture knowledge this week is that in real life the boy who plays henry (noah jupe) is british and his mum is julie from corrie... i screamed.'

Fans were surprised about the link due to Noah's convincing American accent.

The teen has already an impressive acting portfolio having starred in thriller A Quiet Place, The Night Manager, Holmes and Watson, Ford v Ferrari and Honey Boy.  

Expected? In the end, Jonathan was unmasked as the killer, despite mounting evidence in previous episodes that someone had framed him

Henry played a pivotal role in the plot, when at the end of episode Grace (Nicole Kidman) discovered a mallet - the potential murder weapon - hidden in a violin case in his bedroom.

Episode six started with Henry confessing he discovered the weapon in an outdoor fireplace at the Fraser family beach house, which was still bloodied, so he decided to run it through their dishwasher (twice!) to clean it off.  

The child admitted to his shocked mother that he was only trying to cover for his father, who he was convinced killed Elena.   

Drama: The Undoing left UK viewers with mixed feelings as some praised it as 'top tier TV' while others claimed it was a 'waste of time'

Hollywood: The teen has already an impressive acting portfolio having starred in thriller A Quiet Place alongside Emily Blunt

One to watch: Noah also starred alongside Shia LaBeouf in Honey Boy (pictured) 

As the episode continued, all the signs pointed to Jonathan as he admitted on the stand he took his tuxedo from the night in question to the dry cleaners, while making his way to the beach house to see his wife and child.

A shocking flashback from the night of the murder showed his white blood-spattered shirt, however it was still unconfirmed who the killer is at this point.

When Grace confronted her husband over Henry's claims, he suggested that the weapon was planted by the police in order to frame him, and then even suggested his own 12-year-old son Henry was the killer. 

In the end, Jonathan was unmasked as the killer, despite mounting evidence in previous episodes that someone had framed him.
