You need to watch the whole thing....
16 February 2019 | by ksdilauriSee all my reviews

.....because, if you're like me, you may begin to make your mind up too early on. It would be a mistake not to watch all the episodes. Being a guy, I had some reservations: why didn't Lorena just up and leave John if he was such a jerk? And apparently, she'd gotten into trouble for embezzling at her job. "Hmm---no angel", sez I to myself. I nearly stopped watching partway through, figuring it would just end up as a frustrating "She said, He said" kind of thing. But I changed my mind as it showed more evidence of why Lorena did what she did. The witnesses who testified in her behalf are very credible, and the clips of the trial help clarify the highly-charged issues. Slicing her husband was wrong, sure. But when someone has been repeatedly traumatized, is it any surprise when they snap? That final snap need not be a loud, public, knock-down, drag out brawl. It can also be a quiet trip to the kitchen for a glass of water, seeing a knife on the counter, and "CLICK". (Forgive an old quote, but "Kick a dog enough times, and you're gonna get bitten.") John apparently gained no wisdom from the experience, as evidenced by his astonishingly foolish lifestyle after the trial. It's sickening and sad at the same time. In the closing episode, if he's telling the truth about his childhood, it would explain why he became the unstable, violent man that he is---but the outcome remains the same. Both he and Lorena should have gotten serious help sooner. This is a must-watch for those who are caught up in domestic abuse issues.
