SHELTER is widening its web of deceit and surprises within its complicated plot line. It is getting more and more difficult to determine which side of the spectrum every character is playing. 

Viewers learned much in these two episodes, but that also gave way to a litany of more questions that are necessary to answer. The high school “kids” seem more mature and braver beyond their supposed young ages. I enjoy the ensemble, but I am not sure most young people would take so many chances and be able to stay out til all hours of the night. The story is extremely dramatic as the trio tries to find the missing Ashley and figure out who is really alive or dead.  

SHELTER is well-written and fast-paced. It is a series that keeps me on my toes, trying to keep everyone straight in my mind. I fear that all will not be resolved in the final three installments, but I am hooked enough to go along for the ride until the end. It is available to stream on AMAZON PRIME.
