Mark's Testament
18 January 2018 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

I mistakenly put episodes 5 & 6 together so I will add a bit here. The focus has been Trish all along. She is a very plain woman. The attitudes about her are kind of weird because of her plainness. For instance, why would the guy sleep with her when he had the good looking wife at home? Trish seems to be growing from the events of her rape. There is a second victim who is not willing to talk and it seems obvious she has something critical. Then there is the laptop. What is going on with that. Trish's husband has come into the house late at night and pilfered it. His connection with the former student who is supposed to erase information is stymied.
