Gary McCurry reviews the fifth episode of Bloodline…
Five episodes into Bloodline and as soon as you meet a new character you know that their importance won’t be revealed to you straight away, that’s not how they work. Tedious at times, sure. I’ve become accustomed to discovering the backstory to a character through flashbacks, long monologues and memories unfolding in front of their eyes.
You won’t have to dig deep to find spoilers.
Introducing Detective Lenny Potts (Frank Hoyt Taylor). Immediately we get a sense that even though he’s an old Navy friend of Robert, no warm welcome will be received. In town to attend the funeral of the former head of the Rayburn clan, Robert (Sam Shepard). The death of Robert allows the storyline of his last will and testament (the one that excludes son, Danny) and the quiet showdown with Danny to take centre stage. »

This review contains spoilers for the last seven episodes of Bloodline
“Sometimes things happen and you get clear in your mind. You know who you are, you know what you want, and you know what you have to do.”
For its first six episodes, Netflix’s new family drama/mystery Bloodline is the compelling, richly told story of the Rayburns, a wealthy and influential Florida Keys family with a mountain of lies and painful secrets. One of the greatest accomplishments of this first season has been its willingness to let the story unfold slowly, allowing this family and their secrets to develop naturally. By the time the viewer gets to the midway point of the season, they are wrapped up in this family and their wrenching drama.
