You'll be scratching your head over this one
16 June 2019 | by RalphoSee all my reviews

At I write this I have seen every episode but the last one (The Angel Maker), and this is the most confusing by far.

The episode is loaded with flashbacks. John Wilkes Booth's mustache comes and goes. A character named Jack Forrestor works for Lazarus in one scene, and the roles are reversed in another. Both Lazarus and Forrestor are seen talking to an unseen, unnamed man in separate scenes.

Much is unexplained. How did Lazarus' enemies manage to set up this elaborate scheme to convince him that he was part of the Lincoln assassination plot? Why don't they just kill him?

Although there are plenty of flashbacks depicting Lazarus' activities in Washington DC leading up to Lincoln's assassination it isn't clear what is real and what is a past that Lazarus' enemies want him to believe.

In the closing narration, Lazarus vows to get to the truth and "take back my country."

But the audience is more confused than ever.
