Let’s recap The Returned 1.4 “Victor” before getting to this week’s review. There will be spoilers for both so be warned!

Last week we got a glimpse into how little Victor (Dylan Kingwell) died 29 years ago, a result of a home invasion. One of the intruders tried to hide him and make him feel better, “sing a song inside your head,” to no avail. Julie’s (Sandrine Holt) neighbor ends up brutally dead. What does Victor have to do with it? She finally agrees to turn Victor over to Nikki (Agnes Bruckner), who brought him to Peter’s (Jeremy Sisto) community center. Annie (Michelle Forbes) also finds sanctuary there. Lena (Sophie Lowe) passed out and ended up in the hospital, dying we think, from a growing gash in her back that mirrors Camille’s (India Ennenga) death blow. Jack (Mark Pellegrino) is taken in as a suspect in the stabbing of Lucy (Leah Gibson). Rowan (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) hides Simon (Mat Vairo) in the attic. Unbeknownst to her (but not for long), Tommy (Kevin Alejandro) has cameras all over the house and witnesses her romp with Simon. She doesn’t seem to be horrified that he found out, just that he’s been spying on her.

Beware! Spoilers!

Last week on The Returned 1.3 “Julie”, Simon (Mat Vairo) sweetly pretended to be the ghost Rowan (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) thought he was, but Lena (Sophie Lowe) soon dispelled that notion when she came looking for him. Tony (Aaron Douglas) gets dragged down for questioning about the attack on Lucy (Leah Gibson), but they got nothing. What he got was to exchange shovel blows to the head with his returned son Adam (Rhys Ward). Camille (India Ennenga) masquerades as a long lost cousin to come out of hiding. Julie (Sandrine Holt) gets an unpleasant visit.

Please go back and watch The Returned 1.1 “Camille,” and 1.2 “Simon” if you have not done so already. Spoilers ahead!

Dead people have been coming back to this sleepy little one bar (oh the humanity!) town. It has been slow and it has been secret and it has been tragic. What you would think to be the best gift ever, to have loved ones returned from the dead, seemingly normal, is as complicated and messy and scary as you also know it would be.

You need to catch up on The Returned if you haven’t already, because…spoilers! And there really are no excuses because if you have A&E on Demand, they let you watch the second episode “Simon” before it airs tonight!

Last week on The Returned 1.1 “Camille,” they introduced us to the story not in the usual way of pilots with a lot of explaining dialogue. We watched a bus hurtle off a cliff four years ago, with a young Camille (India Ennenga) on it. Four years later, up climbs Camille, still the exact same young as when she went over. Her parents (Mark Pellegrino and Tandi Wright) are naturally thrilled, but a bit frightened. Her not-so-identical-anymore twin Lena (Sophie Lowe) – super freaked out. Her mother’s boyfriend, Peter (Jeremy Sisto), acquired after Camille’s death ripped her parents apart – confused. Other people have returned. Simon (Mat Vairo) came back to see his fiance, Rowan (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), but she thought she was losing her mind. A wife returns to her husband and….please watch – it’s extra tragic, even for a show steeped in tragedy. Julie (Sandrine Holt) found a mute boy but is really reluctant to turn him over to the authorities. Lucy (Leah Gibson) is viciously stabbed.

“Are you afraid of me? I’m afraid of myself.”

The Returned premiered on A&E last week with Episode 1.1 “Camille”, and I was all in from the start. It is Camille (India Innenga) who is afraid in the first promo, admitting that to her now non-identical (not exactly sure if that’s how it works) twin sister who aged without her, while she languished in the unknown, dead for years.

Watch the promos/clips for The Returned Episode 1.2 “Simon” and take a stroll through the image gallery here below.
