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.
The second video, with commentary from Executive Producers & Co-Creators Carlton Cuse and Raelle Tucker, touches on the love that Rowan (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) and Simon (Mat Vairo) had, and the circumstances of…. the brutal “when” he died. Tommy (Kevin Alejandro) is the new, very understanding guy in her life, and apparently the one who delivered the news of Simon’s death to her.
The third video shows Tommy and Officer Nikki Banks (Angnes Bruckner) interrogating a suspect in the stabbing of Lucy (Leah Gibson). The stabs do not appear random, but seem to be a drawn symbol of sorts, and are replicas of crimes that took place seven years ago.
I’m looking very forward to Monday night’s episode. The Returned airs Monday nights at 10pm on A&E.
“The Returned,” from executive producers Carlton Cuse (“Lost,” “Bates Motel”) and Raelle Tucker (“True Blood”), focuses on a small town that is turned upside down when several local people, who have been long presumed dead suddenly reappear, bringing with them both positive and detrimental consequences. As families are reunited, the lives of those who were left behind are challenged on a physical and emotional level. Interpersonal relationships are examined with intrigue and depth as strange phenomena begin to occur. “The Returned” is based on the popular and International Emmy®-award winning French suspense series adapted by Fabrice Gobert and inspired by the feature film, Les Revenants, directed by Robin Campillo.
