Date i finished watching it: April 23, 2017 (Season 1, Episode 1 to 7)
Jane Chapman is a single mom who just moved to a new town. Her first friend is Madeline Mackenzie who is a very influential parent, whom she met while they are on their way to her son’s school. Madeline introduced her to other parents like Renata, Nathan (Madeline’s ex husband), Bonnie (Nathan’s new girlfriend) and Celeste (Madeline’s bestfriend).
Jane, Madeline and Celeste became very close. They share tea (sometimes coffee) at a local cafe and gossip or just talk about their lives. Jane talks about the father of her son, whom she simply had a one night stand with. She describes him as a nice man at first but later became aggressive. Madeline talks about her struggles as a mother of Abby (her teenage daughter) and her fondness of Bonnie. She also mentioned her affair with Joseph, her colleague at the theatre. Madeline and Jane were mostly problematic and struggling while Cesleste appears to lead a perfect life. Also, Jane’s son, Ziggy, was accused of bullying and hurting Renata’s daughter. Ziggy don’t have friends because of what he was accused of, Renata was also furious all the time. Madeline sides with Jane and becomes very competitive against Renata. Joseph’s wife, Tori, found out about Madeline when they were in an accident together. Fortunately, Madeline’s husband didn’t suspect.
This miniseries ends with Celeste confessing to Renata that it was her son, Max, who has been bullying her daughter, and Jane’s son was wrongly accused. Cesleste found out about it through Jane, and Max also confessed afterward. Renata went to Jane, to apologize. She found Jane together with Madeline who was crying because she felt guilty about her affair. Her husband was singing on stage and she just couldnt help herself from feeling guilty because she realized how great of a man he is. It was Jane, Madeline and Renata talking when Celeste arrived. Celeste’s husband, Perry, was chasing after her (all the while her husband has been physically abusive, she was just in a denial stage or was protecting their marriage). He was trying to get her hands on Celeste but the other woman fought him. They were fighting against Perry and when he appeared to be winning, Bonnie ran to help them. It was Bonnie who pushed Celeste husband down the stairs but they told the police nothing about it. No one was blamed for his death (maybe someone will be blamed on season 2? If there is a season 2) . Also, it turns out Perry was the same man Jane had a one night stand with.
