‘Behind Her Eyes’ a thrilling mystery

Boh Suh, Staff Writer

“Another day, another tv show to look for.”

“Well, the trailer looks interesting. A little spooky… alright, let’s try it.”

This is how my wife and I ended up watching the show “Behind Her Eyes.” I honestly thought this was going to be about eyes, which is not the case.

There are six episodes in season one with potential future seasons coming up. The show was released in 2021 and the genre of the show is psychological thriller with some twist. The main cast includes Simona Brown, Eve Hewson, Tom Bateman, and Robert Aramayo.

The story goes back and forth between the past and the present, and it is important to pay attention to each character a little bit, which helps in the end with understanding the story better. The show is from the point of view of Louise, a single mom who works at a psychiatrist’s office who meets David, the new psychiatrist and his wife, Adele.

Before she knew David was the new psychiatrist at her work and married, they were both attracted to each other. And it gets a little awkward between them after she finds out he’s married and has a beautiful wife, Adele.

However, their relationship is a little abnormal as David treats Adele as a patient rather than a wife. David and Louise fall in love, but then after a sudden encounter on street, Louise became a friend of Adele. Basically, Louise is having an affair with the husband while also being friends with the wife. Adele then shares her story about her best friend named Rob when she was at a mental institution, and the story goes on…

Based on what I wrote, it sounds like some twisting romance, but it was hard to tell who was supposed to be a bad person. Adele seems nice, but she also seems strange at the same time. David seems romantic and gentle, but he also seems very indifferent towards his wife, Adele. And then there’s Rob who seems to be in love with Adele. Only Louise seems like a normal character.

We are watching the show from Louise’s point of view and each episode provides a little bit of each character, so it was difficult to assume who was supposed to be a bad person. However, it was clear at the end of the last episode, and you will not be disappointed.
