The second series of RTE's legal drama Striking Out wrapped on Sunday night with a whopper of a cliffhanger.

A third series of the show, starring Amy Huberman, Neil Morrissey, Moe Dunford and host of other talent, seems highly likely given there was no resolution to the drama after the six episode run.

The very last line of dialogue was lead character Tara Rafferty, who has been sleeping with her ex-fiance Eric's brother, declaring, 'Eric, there's something I have to tell you...'

Some viewers were bereft:

Others, not so much:

As usual, some people weren't quite sure what was going on:

Of all the drama in the final episode, however, it was Irene Rafferty's (Ingrid Craigie) reaction to her cheating husband that garnered the most attention.

“Pack your bags and then f**k off.  And don't forget to put your plate in the dishwasher.” she said, much to viewers' delight.

A third series has not yet been commissioned by RTE but we'll keep you posted.
