Very Engaging Debut to Season 2
12 September 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

There is something extra cowardly about someone who hides behind a mask. In this one, a British kid, arbitrarily attacks victims, mostly young women, and cuts their throats. During the episode, Luther has him, but gets tazed and nearly killed. The guy continues his destruction. Alice is in a mental hospital, visited by Luther. Eventually, they get the guys name. Of course, Luther knows what he looks like. In a brutal last couple of scenes, the bad guy is on a street of row houses and knocks on doors until a person answers and is brutally killed. There is also a subplot of a young woman who is caught up in the porn industry. Her mother has asked Luther to intervene because he sent the girl's father to prison, where he died. There is the usual stunning final moment when a narrative hook occurs. I won't ruin it.
