Summary: The story begins with a flashback montage as Tanya remembers her father, who died of a stroke. But as she puts down her father’s picture, she discovers he’s alive, even calling her by his affectionate nickname for her when she was younger. But she doesn’t see that he’s connected to a tendril. Later, Quill is also visited by a dead relative, in this case her sister, also attached to a tendril. Ram is visited by Rachel, connected by another tendril. These tendrils belong to the Lan Kin, who are using them as lures in order to take the children and feast on their souls.
Review: Oh this was CREEPY! The score was great, although the story was a bit slow in places. There was some good character development for Tanya. What I like about this show is that even though the story has at least one character who is meant to be the focus, the rest of the focus is not shoved to the background. They all get key moments of development. Quill continues to be my favorite character. I’m not sure if this is going to last past the eight episodes we have currently, but I think this is a good start.
Overall Review: 8/10
