*Warning, contains spoilers for The Bay!
ITVs new drama The Bay kicked off tonight with Morvern Christies character Lisa Armstrong thrown right into the midst of a complicated missing persons case.
The family liason officer is on a mission to hunt down teenage twins Holly and Dylan, only to learn that she has a personal connection to the family which could compromise her and the investigation.
Theres a lot to unpack and here are all our questions from episode one.
Why did the twins run away?
Holly and Dylans disappearance was announced at the beginning of the episode and so far theres no leads on why they vanished.
We know that Sean and Jesss arguments might have played a factor, as well as the familys mounting money issues.
We also know that theres something shady happening in the town with the teens in general. Were they taunted out of their hometown?
Holly and Dylan went missing (Picture: ITV) How did Dylan die?
Dylans body was found on the beach at the end of the episode.
The cause of his death is yet to be determined, so it remains unclear as tho whether he was murdered or accidentally got trapped in Morecambe Bays notorious waters as the tide came in.
How are Lisas children involved in the case?
Lisas daughter Abbie was seen texting another boy in the school called Sam about the twins being missing. Sam ignored the text and shortly after Abi was suspended.
Meanwhile, Lisas son Rob was seen having a worrying conversation on a chatroom with someone called Bantasaurusrex.
Bantasaurusrex was asking him to prove something and he looked pretty damn worried. Is the mysterious user linked to Holly and Dylans disappearance?

Will Lisa confess to having a one-night stand with Sean?
Its already becoming clear that Lisas lies about having a one-night stand with Sean are catching up with her.
How much more will she cover up before shes forced to come clean.
Is the biological dad involved with the twins disappearance?
The twins biological dad brought himself in for questioning and revealed that he hadnt seen his kids for 10 years.
He claimed that he wasnt allowed access to the kids, saying that things got messy in the divorce from Jess.
Is he lying about having contact with the twins? Has he taken them in some sort of sick revenge plan against Jess?
Lisa deleted the security footage from the night in question (Picture: ITV)
Will the security footage return?
Lisa downloaded the footage from the pub only a USB stick and took it to the police station.
We saw Lisa see herself on the tapes, and before she had a time to delete them, she had to go to the school to pick up her daughter Abbie who had been suspended.
She later deleted the file – but did she empty her desktop recycling bin? Will someone get their hands on the tapes and will they come back to bite her?
Margaret is definitely hiding something (Picture: ITV)
Whats Jesss mum Margaret hiding?
Margaret is definitely not letting onto something about the twins vanishing act.
When Lisa asked her why she thought they ran away, she replied: I wouldnt blame them if they have.
What does she know?
Is Sean guilty? (Picture: ITV)
Have they arrested the right man?
Sean was arrested at the end of the first episode for his shady behaviour, but was he the one whodunnit?
The twins biological dad has already planted the seed that the mans a bad egg, telling the police: Everything was alright. Me, Jess and the twins. Then she met him. Everything changed when she met him.
Hes bad news. She was never the same after she hooked up with him.
BUT, we know that Seans only lied about his timeline of events because he got busy with Lisa and doesnt want his night of passion to come out and destroy his marriage.
