Storyline

Laura is a smart and dedicated teacher, not long out of a relationship and unsure about getting back on the dating scene. Andrew is a renowned surgeon whose son is a pupil at Laura's school. An initial attraction leads to a date, but neither fully realizes the far-reaching consequences that their meeting will have on each other or their families. Truth and consequences go hand in hand in the tense and gripping thriller that examines both sides of a relationship and both sides of the truth. Are there really two sides to every story?

Truly interesting
31 October 2017 | by rocky-mSee all my reviews

It is funny that large majority of the reviews here were written after the first episode.

This is a TV show that after the second episode takes so many turns that your head spins. It really has to be binged in order to be fully appreciated. Only after knowing what happened later you can truly understand what happened in the first two episodes and why people behaved like they did.

The ending was shocking to me, I did not see it coming and I wonder what really happened.

For those who say that men were portrayed like the villains - Laura eventually goes on a date with some other guy who seems normal and likable. The supporting cast is definitely not "the stock" kind. Every actor took what was given to him and gave his best.

If this show is really planned for another season I am really looking forward to it.
