    So here's what I thought of season 1 (without spoilers!)

    I thought overall this was quite a good series, at certain moments they know how to get your attention and how to make it exciting. What they do really well (from about episode 3 to episode 7) is build up the tension. You're constantly wondering if you can trust her or not. They make you swing back and forth between those two, which I liked a lot! The camerawork and lighting are overall really good and really add something to the table.
    There are obviously a few things that could have been better. For instance, I was kind of disappointed at the number of flashbacks in the series, if they had a few more you could have better understood what happened and how it changed her. Something else that bothered me was the fact that they just let her walk out a day after they found her, without a lot of psychological help or a police escort or anything (this is something they do in a lot of series, but it always bothers me so I thought I would just throw it out there).

    If you're into series like blindspot or other detective series, you should totally watch it! Because it only has 10 episodes, the episodes have good pacing and it's very enjoyable! The actresses and actors are well chosen, so there's another reason to watch 🙂

    I hope this helps someone out there who doesn't know if they should watch it (usually I'm that person and I didn't really see a good review in the comments so I thought I would add mine). Enjoy the series!

    I just finished s01 episode 4 and I'm blown away. Like what the hell just happened. Things just went from 6 to 10 just like that and I'm here for it

    Update: after watching season 1, I'm not encouraged to watch any further. I'd give it a 6/10

    P.S: Her husband is a coward!

    Wow. Imagine to go back to an husband who has remarried and a son who doesn't recognize you.. because everyone thinked that you were dead. Than imagine to the hundreds of thousands of fathers that have to go trough the same, not in a tv show, but because they didn't get custody and/or they were at war and/or they were in prison. Happens every day. And it's not a tv show.

    A very distant connection with the general theme of the US-federal government, or rather the military in that federal government is financing some research to produce the perfect soldiers who can kill without even feeling any emotion, be it pleasure, excitement or guilt. Killing is just in the spirit of this series the result of the accumulated suffering one has experienced in a situation of extreme dependence, like, in this case again, an orphanage.

    Emily Byrne is one of these guinea-children but she manages to have her profile shifted from her file to the file of Logan Brandt (who is in present time reporter Laurie Colson, another cliché about journalists who follow their own desire for revenge) in this orphanage where a perverse doctor – who of course has an oriental name and is either a Chinese American or a Japanese American, and don’t you think this is innocent – who is conducting these researches and their experimentation on real live children.

    The two tortured children in the orphanage, Charles Avallone and Logan Brandt, manage finally to kill the doctor and that will be the end of him and the orphanage. Officially the doctor disappeared. In fact, he was buried not too far away. But then it is difficult to know some details, but we assume Logan and Charles continued killing since five bodies were buried along with the doctor’s body.

    But Charles ended badly in a psychiatric hospital and Logan found a new partner: Harlowe, and together they went on killing. Unluckily Harlow was caught and apparently, he paid with a long prison sentence, life without parole, to cover up Logan. They kidnapped the FBI agent who was running after them, Emily Byrne, and the series starts when six years later, after six years of systematic torturing, Harlow being in prison, Logan, now Laurie Colson, his girlfriend in a way, went on torturing Emily Byrne and keeping her prisoner for later use. And after six years she released her to complete her vengeance.

    Her husband, Nick Durand remarried with Alice and they took care of the son of Emily and Nick, Flynn. The comeback of Emily Byrne makes things difficult and even complicated. But the girl-killer Logan or Laurie is organizing the release of Harlow and then she manages to kill Harlow and a couple more people so that Emily Byrne is the prime suspect. Emily then is forced to go AWOL and to work underground. But Logan-Laurie is very swift, and she is very close to the case. She is a journalist and as such has contacts with many police officers or detectives and Nick is one of them. She thus manages to have direct information by promising Nick she will write an exclusive story of Emily Byrne if she can get her to tell her side of the story.

    Of course, the serial criminal this woman is will not win, but the details are for you to find them. We know quite early the criminal mind behind this story has to be a woman, and we also know the pattern of a criminal hiding in plain sight as a journalist, reporter or whatever justifies his or her presence on crime scenes, but even so many other hypotheses are brought up with no success, of course, though the fact that Emily Byrne is a prime suspect all along is the easy way for the police to get even with facts when they do not even see the slightest candlelight in their mental night.

    Enjoy the very swift-Speedy-Gonzales tempo and do not get inebriated by it. You are not supposed to drive under the influence of anything even if what you are driving is a sofa or a futon.

    When watching the series, I noticed when she walked into the river from the woods, she was wearing a black winter coat but when she was under water she was wearing a white tank top then as she emerged from the water she was back in her coat again. Oopsies.
