The Sinner Season 2 Episodes
Turns Out, Harry Started The Fire
Harry reveals to Julian in Part VI that he starts the fire himself when he arrives home to an unattended boiling pot of water and his depressed mother sitting non-responsive in he bedroom. Young Harry then proceeds to light a dish towel on fire and ignite the curtains with it, which results in his home burning down, his mother getting committed, and and Harry in foster care.
Harry Runs Away From Keller As A Teenager
It’s revealed at that same present-day party that Ambrose leaves Keller at age 17, after his mother’s death, and never returns — that is, until the Julian Walker murder investigation lured him back.
Marin’s Relationship With Mosswood Grove Grows Stronger
Heather is awakened the next morning by Marin in her bed. Clearly perturbed that she had left her there along for the night, Heather wants an explanation of why Marin felt such a strong connection to that place. Heather can’t really give one, but it’s clear that she felt a certain sense of calm and community while at Mosswood. This is made all the more clear when on a night shortly after, Heather goes to pick Marin up for a party and Marin and Tammy are at each other’s throats again. Instead of wanting the comfort of Heather, Marin says she wants to go back to Mosswood.
Throughout the season, The Sinner subverted expectations in a way that made for really interesting storytelling, from the revelation of Julian’s parentage (several times over) to the practices of Mosswood, to even comparatively small (but important) moments like Marin’s death. It was set up so clearly that Julian was the one who had killed her to escape, and then twisted again to seem like it was a murder.
The Sinner Season 2 Reviews
- Cora (Jessica Biel) is a normal looking young woman who commits a shocking crime in full view of many witnesses. As viewers, we witness the crime also, so there is no doubt of her guilt.
- Means and opportunity are never in question, but what is the motive? That is the central mystery around which this series revolves. And it is the question that drives police detective Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) to dig deeper despite Cora’s confession of guilt.
- Ambrose is a sad sack character who seems to commune better with nature than with people. Perhaps he understands compulsion and seeks to unravel his own while investigating Cora’s.
- In the first episode, Cora says, “I never thought that I would have a normal life.” This is a major clue that her behavior may be rooted in her early years. Throughout the show, there are flashbacks to various happenings from all periods of Cora’s life–clues that form pieces of the jigsaw puzzle solution.
