The Kid reveals to Molly that he is Henry Deaver, the biological son of Ruth and Pastor Matthew from an alternate reality. In a flashback in the Kid's universe, Ruth followed through on leaving her troubled husband in 1991, taking her child and fleeing to Boston. After they left, the Pastor was not murdered by 12-year-old Molly, but did find 12-year-old black Henry who went missing in 1991 in his reality. In 2018, this Pastor Deaver commits suicide, and grown white Henry finds the adopted Henry in a cage in the basement. White adult Henry and his Molly talk to adopted Henry, who insists the voices are calling him to the woods. When Molly touches his hand, she sees the first 12 years of the Molly and Henry of his reality. Molly and white Henry take adopted Henry to the woods near Castle Lake, where they see people from centuries of multiple realities. Molly is accidentally killed, adopted Henry returns to his reality, and white Henry follows him, becoming the Kid.

What did I just watch?
6 September 2018 | by philneilSee all my reviews

The jury is out on this one. I'll hold my opinion until the end.

I just hope this is not going to leave us with more questions than answers.

TV series these days seem to drag & drift, back & forth, and if it were not for the fact that they are streamed, then most would be nigh on impossible to follow.

The series as a whole is plodding on, but it also crawls incoherently backwards. One would assume that retaining an audience would be paramount yet this series seems to go out of its way to be tedious, unfathomable & intolerable.

Even if answers are ultimately provided will any one still be around to witness them?
