Ok, so now I know how it ends...

Absentia Very well done if you like this genre. For me, I think I need to care about the characters more than I did for these. Not that they weren't well-acted. All the pieces are here in this series and well executed. I just didn't like Nick, or really feel much for Emily. The hardest part to watch involved their son getting caught up with the same psychopathic game played by Emily's perpetrator. But, as addicting and adrenaline-filled as the plot was, I just didn't feel the people, which had to be on the writers. Rather than humanize them, create sympathy or a connection, there was jeopardy, action, twists, and lots of good things that were fun, but didn't really make me excited for a season 2.

So, if you like plot-driven psycho-thrillers, I highly recommend Absentia. If you want to care, this one will frustrate you.
