This episode is essentially the conclusion of last week’s set up, the murder of Lana Cleary and disappearance of Solomon Bowman are wrapped up. We get to see a flashback to the actual crime taking place, for me seeing the trauma of it happening through the youngsters eyes are among some of the most disturbing scenes I think the show has done, though thankfully it is brief. It’s not that it’s particularly savage as such, but it is beautifully filmed and edited in such a way that you really feel the loss of the children’s innocence and control over the situation they found themselves in. There are other more brutal scenes in the episode, including some of torture, but this flashback is the stand out disconcerting one for me this week.
