Storyline mash-up
8 August 2015 | by dooneesewiigSee all my reviews

Warning, spoiler!

It was kinda confusing or is it just me. When Kelly went to her friend's house, Diane, looking for her son Zach Diane told Kelly he was with Matt, Kelly's boyfriend. Prior to that Diane went to Kelly's house and find Eph and Nora on the floor, post-coital. Prior to that Eph had already killed Matt. So by the time Kelly asked Diane where Zach is at that point Diane must have known that Zach was with Eph and not with Matt.

But so far I like where the story is going.

Not a lot going on which is I think good in establishing the main characters arc.
