 Netflix - The Stranger

Has anybody else watched the series through to the last episode ?

Am I alone in not following how the ending pans out ?

Spoiler alert - not going into details yet, so current viewers are advised not to follow this thread, for obvious reasons.

Don't want to mess it up for anybody.

Hi,

I blitzed through it but not sure what you’re referring to. Thought the ending was a bit of a let down.

There were also too many characters in it for my liking!

Never seen it. I thought it said Servant initially. Now that's worth a watch. An Apple TV original....

The FBI woman helped cover it up did she not? At the end when he’s watching his son play football you see a short flashback post the event with the PE teacher.

"The FBI woman helped cover it up did she not? At the end when he’s watching his son play football you see a short flashback post the event with the PE teacher."

It was the cover up that didn't make sense, to me at least.

They were pinning it on the rogue cop - yet he had been arrested in the house where the two girls lived after shooting them both, and was in police custody before Adam headed off to confront the PE teacher.

How does that work?

Then there's the gun being spirited away by the girl to the hospital and passed to him ?

Should really put a spoiler alert on.

The investigator made it look like her colleague had murdered both the guys wife and the neighbour. Not sure how likely that would be. Time of death would be hard to prove. For all we know they buried the guys body and they then got a tip about his car being in the area.

What was even less believable was how a guy who seemed to be the gym teacher owned a massive house in a nice area, had a high spec Range Rover and noone wondered how he afforded it.

Heard everyone raving about it so decided to give it a watch. Didn’t even finish the first episode. Thought it was gash to be honest.

How could the rogue cop (Patrick Katz) shoot the PE teacher (Doug Tripp) in a forest when he was being held in police custody ?

Then how do they explain Adam Price's buried wife at the scene and the dead Tripp with three bullets in him closeby ?

Then there's the missing gun - when police are called to a shooting an immediate priority is to secure any firearms, make them safe and bag as evidence.

I'm assuming they buried the PE guy too and waited a while before getting a "tip" or something. Who knows? It was left very vague. What I don't get is how the police couldn't check CCTV for the missing wife's car.

A bigger point is probably that we never once saw the dad at his office. High paid solicitor yet spent most of his time driving his kids to school.

First two episodes were pretty gripping but i felt it lost it's way a bit after that and a pretty underwhelming conclusion.

Most surprising thing for me was someone as famous as Jennifer Saunders signing up for a character who was killed off inside two episodes :-p

The plot went a bit here and there but still a decent watch.
The Power series was great.
