The episode summary
So Clickbait ends with one last turn, confirming that the clickbait title should have been “catfish”, but to be honest, that may have given too much away.
The concept of a lonely woman committing a cyber crime that accidentally caused a death got out of hand is actually quite nice, but the performance was so-so.
The constant revolving door of protagonists in each episode is one great irritation, leaving many loose ends and unfinished character stories.
Did it have any consequences for Ben breaking into Simon’s house? What eventually became of Daryl and Simon? What about Ethan and Alison? Do they have one relationship now? There are more, but these are the ones that appear at the end of the chapter.
Despite this, the real mystery has been quite intriguing, and I have to admit that the last twist completely caught me off guard.
I expected that reporter or at least Detective Amiri. It’s a nice addition though, and this episode does a good job of explaining how everything is connected.
