My thoughts: this was interesting, Paul has a lot of secrets, a lot of issues that he’s buried and that includes his former fianceè, Nicole, who he thinks he killed and buried in the woods. His current relationship is going really well, and I felt really sorry for Jenna, who is completely innocent in all of this and finds it very distressing when she starts receiving messages from Nicole.
I couldn’t see who it could be behind all of this if Paul’s memory was working ok, but since it wasn’t, I thought it could be Nicole. I didn’t see the twists coming at all. The way everyone involved is manipulated and tricked without her ever putting in an appearance exposes the problem with relying on technology so much.
