Have you ever been so invested in a show that you binge the entire series in one day, forgetting about all your adult responsibilities, only to be epically let down in the final moments?

The complexities of this show were really intriguing in the beginning. We follow Gina, or who we think is Gina as we unravel an odd truth that the twins have been switching lives every year for as long as they could remember. To top off that realization, Leni is missing... or is it Gina... Who knows at this point.

Half way through the season, the point of view is switched to the other twin, Leni. This is where things start to become jumbled and the weave of the story is so tangled its hard to keep things straight. Who is who? Is it really Gina playing Leni, or vis versa? Even with all of this confusion going on, I was still invested until the end, because I had to know who the psycho twin was.

The final episode was were it all went wrong. A good story is supposed to wrap things up, or leave the reader's mind blow with a truth so horrendous you can't think for days, but this story seemed to continue with the confusion long after the end. The twins are still out there causing mayhem and stalking people. At this point, it was all too much as my mind had been on high alert for the entire seven episode series and there were never any instances where I felt a resting point where things made sense and were calm.

If the story had ended at episode six I would have given this series five out of five stars, but that ending was trash.
