Storyline

She disappeared. No one heard from her for six years. No one knows what happened to her, not even her. An FBI Agent tracking a Boston serial killer vanishes, and is declared dead. Six years later, she is found in a cabin in the woods, with no memory of what happened during the time she went missing. She comes back to a husband who has remarried, and whose wife is raising her son. She will have to navigate in her new reality, and she will soon find herself implicated in a new series of murders.

Did they need to make it ten episodes long!!!!
9 September 2020 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

Emily is back, after five years presumed dead, she wants her life back, but things have changed, what she wants, is to find out who's held her hostage.

I will be as honest as I possibly can be with this series (one.) It starts well and ends brilliantly, Parts one, nine and ten are terrific, what comes in between is agonising to watch. This should have been a four part series at most, it's very padded out.

Imagine Wonder Woman has gone rogue, with all her superpowers on hand, and the only Detective you have to bring her in is Officer Doofy from Scary Movie. Too often Emily is almost Superhuman, and those in pursuit are absolutely calamitous, to the point of being comedic.

I watched it all over two days, so it has something, if you're struggling mid way through I would say stick at it, it improves towards the end.

Strong start, great ending, but you really have to watch some boring drivel in the middle to get there, 6/10.
