1. Gibson isn’t your standard detective.

Initially brought in from Britain to review a single case, Gibson realizes that it’s linked to others. But with her chilling ability to get inside the killer’s head, and her generally cold and clinical manner, she has us wondering just how different she is from the man she’s hunting.

2. The killer’s double life.

Paul spends his nights stalking, but when he goes home, it’s to a wife and kids. How can someone have a picture-perfect family life and still contain such darkness? That’s a question this series asks.
