Plot and Review
A teenager goes missing and is later found murdered in a suburban community. A serial killer is suspected to be the reason behind it. Hence two men, played by Sam Trammell and Aden Young, set on a path of creating havoc within their quiet community.
Although it sounds like one, “Reckoning” is not your average serial killer story.
Every episode has an average runtime of forty-five-minute. With every unfolding episode, it soon becomes clear that there is more to the story than what meets the eye. The story is told in a way that keeps the viewers guessing till the end. The True Blood fame, Sam Trammell, and the Rectify fame, Aden Young, deliver an impressive performance. On one hand, where Aden plays the role of a detective, Leo plays the role of a former serial killer. Consequently, this forms the basis of an interesting plotline. Like most action thrillers, the most intriguing part about Reckoning is connecting the dots.
