Racing to Australia in part to save Roth's brother-in-law Remsey from danger, Jesse and Roth were last seen leaping into the water as Border Patrol raided their vessel. As leader of a non-violent independence movement Remsey is being blamed for the murder of the Australian surfers, and with a member of his group found dead at the attack site, the local police claimed it was politically motivated terrorism against the mine - and the surfers fired back. Roth is black with rage that his site was used as a forum for paedophiles and he and Jesse are also desperate to find Callum before it's too late. Determined that his 2IC Gary will pay, things go horribly south and the trail to Callum is lost. With Jesse still missing, Ned contacts a photojournalist at the mine, but Meg Flynn is using the mine job as a cover to gain access to the political hotspot, and doesn't need Ned exposing her intentions. The trail delivers more questions than answers, but what's clear is that Roth is on the radar ...
It is impossible to see everything that's on these days. We all miss great stuff, because there's just so much time to watch. So we all miss great shows.
Don't miss this one. Season One was a marvel, combining the story of two brothers, one autistic, and how they depend on one another, with the relentless, headlong rush of the best thrillers.
Season Two starts a new story for the pair, and it's just as much a treat as Season One. The writing is spare and direct, the action constant, the plot taking directions you don't see coming, and all at a pace that leaves you panting. Ashley Zukerman wears the character of autistic brother Jesse like a diving suit. This is an actor's actor, and it's a gas to see someone so totally focused and true in a role that would have felled lesser players. Dan Spielman as brother Ned stands out as well, no mean feat when sharing the screen with Zukerman. We become seriously invested in their characters outside of the story.
You can't look away from this show. It will reward you richly for that.
