The writer's have the grieving mother hire a rapist to find a released felon in witness protection? A rapist? A rapist? I just cannot accept that, it is beyond unbelievable, for many reasons, the primary one being that he's a rapist, not to mention he's not at all or in any way skilled in matters of detection. "What is your expertise?" "I rape and I see gaps in safety to help with my raping." "You're hired!" And quite conveniently the rapist suddenly becomes an uber-detective supreme, without any prior experience! Extraordinary! And we're supposed to enjoy this. are we? Pardon me, but rapists should be in jail for life. just my opinion. And considering what her daughter might or might not have endured. to hire a rapist would surely not even be considered as an option, you would, in reality, hire a highly competent private detective or retired FBI agent, someone with contacts and expertise, someone who wasn't as with the rapist, unable to leave the state to follow leads because he's on probation. Oh, but as we see in the series, the mother is super powerful and can easefully without any delays or difficulties, grease the wheels of justice to allow the rapist to leave the state and gallivant wherever he pleases! More nonsense we must mindlessly accept! Would you, in good conscience, give a rapist free reign and endless funds without any oversight? Gosh, I don't know about you, but I'd be awfully worried he'd resume his former ways. It's okay though, he asserts he's reformed! Well, I feel better already. Hey, maybe next she can find a former drug addict and give them an entire warehouse filled with cocaine to supervise! And what a great deal of trouble to go through when it would have been so much easier for her to just simply hire an actual detective. As for the rest of the story, the writers have magical powers; they can make a good idea for a series disappear! It is dull, dull, dull. Lily Rabe's bayou murder mystery is trite, her past with the serial killer shockingly uninteresting, and the dimensions of her own character are shallow, the viewer is not invested in her, just as they are not invested in the mother, both are tragically and remarkably unlikable. This show is best suited for hate watching with friends and family or for masochists seeking punishment.
