Kind Worth Killing: Peter Swanson
In a tantalizing set-up reminiscent of Patricia
Highsmith's classic Strangers on a Train. On a night
flight from London to Boston, Ted Severson meets the
stunning and mysterious Lily Kintner. Sharing one too
many martinis, the strangers begin to play a game of
truth, revealing very intimate details about themselves.
Ted talks about his marriage that's going stale and his
wife Miranda, who he's sure is cheating on him. Ted and
his wife were a mismatch from the start - he the rich
businessman, she the artistic free spirit - a contrast
that once inflamed their passion, but has now become a
cliché. But their game turns a little darker when Ted
jokes that he could kill Miranda for what she's done.
Lily, without missing a beat, says calmly, "I'd
like to help." After all, some people are the kind
worth killing, like a lying, stinking, cheating spouse.

Rose: Nicola Marsh
Rose Mathieson knows the only way is up. It has to be.
She's made some mistakes in her life, but almost losing
her son is a wake-up call. More than that: it's a call
to action. It's time to start again. The town of
Redemption, Connecticut, seems to offer exactly what she
craves: a quiet, stable life for her and her
six-year-old son, Olly. But Redemption has changed since
she last saw it - or perhaps it's just Rose who has
changed. Her reputation precedes her now, and not
everyone is happy to see her back. Caden Shoreham is, though. Rose's childhood neighbor, a
preacher's son, and now the pillar of the community,
he's embarking on an ambitious new path of his own. He
had always hoped they might end up more than friends,
but Rose Mathieson isn't quite what his parents and
friends had in mind for him. Everyone deserves a chance
- but has Rose used all her chances up?
