TLDR

Don't be suspicious, DON'T BE SUSPICIOUS!

What it's about

Five years after escaping to Barcelona with her daughter, a British woman's past begins to resurface after a supermarket robbery

The take

Why is Erin Carter, a British temp teacher in Barcelona, always on edge and stabbing people with random objects? Well, it seems that hiding in a Spanish-speaking country is the modus operandi for many a protagonist on the run (looking at you, The Chosen One), and yet they can't help but look suspicious in easily avoidable ways. But two episodes in, and it's barely clear what Erin is running away from, but luckily, she can shoot, stab, and throw a nasty open-palm slap. And if you're in the mood for bloody action, a standard dose of suspense and can ignore that this story feels as familiar as every other "badass person with a secret" show, it doesn't disappoint as much as it could. 

What stands out

Playing Erin's daughter, Harper, Indica Watson is the fiery character you want to keep watching for. She's punching rude boys in the mouth (and breaking teeth!), rightfully suspicious of adults acting weird, and quick with the oh-so-needed clapbacks. While Erin's past is the main mystery, Indica steals the show with her sharp tongue and secrets of her own.
