In season one Gemma Foster (Suranne Jones) discovered her husband was having an affair and then went about planning her revenge. We were left in floods of tears at the finale when Gemma’s husband, Simon, abandoned their marriage and drove off to be with his younger lover, leaving Gemma and their teenage son behind.
Season two tells the next chapter in Gemma’s story, picking up with the aftermath of divorce, deceit and revenge.
Gemma’s life in Parminster may look better on the surface, but as she will discover to her cost, every action has its consequence eventually. No one comes through hell unscathed.
