It's certainly quite original, and being french just adds to that.

ChaceTheAce 10-06-2013 03:51 PM

Was fantastic IMO. Can't wait for next week now.

Jer 10-06-2013 03:57 PM

Yep, looking forward to Ep2 (and seeing how they explain the 'returned' premise)

It was one of those endings that make you impatient for the next episode.

I was expecting her to 'arise', so to speak.

HC17 10-06-2013 10:12 PM

The subway attack girl, the older sister and the nurse all looked too similar for my liking, got a bit confused! Looks fantastic though, one of those programmes that looks a lot better when watched in the dark. Soundtrack was great as well, looking forward to next week.

Nicely paced, and paved the way for a lot of questions... I just hope it doesn't disappear up its own arse like Lost did.

The owner and son decide what lies to tell the police, and in the meantime Cyril wakes up and walks off to the next chapter in his life.

The Omen 12-06-2013 08:02 AM

I think I have this one sussed a little... this is only based on my viewing (I haven't read around the internet) so it is likely wrong, but if you want to come up with your own ideas it is probably best to stop reading now.

For some reason, people in this French town return from the dead every so often. Victor (the little boy), the man searching for Adele and the person who came back to the old man were all dead before the bus incident. That day they came back - Victor caused the bus crash and now we can add the twin into the ghost collection.

So now they have come back again. The death this time they returned was the prostitute in the subway (possibly killed by another ghost).

The guy searching for Adele has come back before and Adele has had to deal with him (Adele said, "It's happening again") and the boy Victor is linked to him and Adele. I am assuming this was her boyfriend and the boy was her son - maybe they died together? She moved to get away from them, but the man still found her - whereas Victor just went home and was taken in by the nurse/doctor.

The old man had also seen the ghost he knew come back before. I think it was his wife. So tired of the experience, he sets his house on fire to try and kill the ghost as well as committing suicide himself (now he will also likely return due to dying during the time the ghosts rise).

Is the situation completely unknown by the residents? I'm not sure. The dad of the twin and the new partner ('doctor') had an interesting conversation along the lines of "this has never happened before." which we could think they are talking about someone coming back from the dead - but I think it is more than that. There is something different about the twin coming back compared to the others that have returned.

I think I have had more thoughts on it too... but I can't think of any other bits at the moment.

The Omen 12-06-2013 08:04 AM

Just went on IMDB to see when it was released. It actually came out in France last year. I avoided reading the review as it contained spoilers, but the first line doesn't sound too good...

"I watched the whole series which came out last year in France. It started fine but soon went downhill, until the last episode which degenerated into utter nonsense, not unlike a cheap sci-fi from the 1950s."

OscillateWildly 12-06-2013 08:06 AM

Enjoyed the first episode

The twins mum said to her new partner 'you said this would happen' or something along those lines which points to your theory.

Ant.Palace 12-06-2013 03:43 PM

But why aren't all the people/kids on the coach resurrected?

HC17 12-06-2013 03:48 PM

Possible theory, the boy, the man and the old man are all the same person. But they always return as the boy and then age like everybody else.

Only backed up by the boy being reluctant to tell Adele his real name and adopting the name Victor (unless of course that is actually his name)

So, what more do we know? The stabber of the barmaid we're assuming is also a 'returned' (and he stabbed the doctor who's adopted Victor 10 years ago). More so, they all seem to be linked in one way or another to each other.

She is not dead according to when they found her last night.
And the woman who took the boy in ... appears she was the first "victim" of the subway attacker.... IMHO it got even better last night.

I began to get a bit confused, unusually, because I assumed it was just the coach kids that were coming back. Then I thought, hello, what was a big, black, vicious Alsatian doing on a kids' school trip.

Think I've got it now :)

She had 13 stab wounds, been bitten (and the wounds looked pretty bad) and been in the subway overnight, so I was assuming she had died and since "returned".

The Alsatian is the one thing that really baffles me. It was dead (and hanging up) then it was 'returned'. The other returned are obviously not the original bodies as they were all buried, but the dog i'm assuming is the same body (unless the one hanging up just disappeared).

cross_eyed_ed 17-06-2013 10:56 AM

Lots of things are baffling me, mainly the significance of the water level in the dam, all the dead animals in the water in the titles, and especially Victor.

I wonder if the old man commiting suicide off the dam was significant too.

Victor is a pretty creepy kid.

What happened to the dog hanging up then? Plus the bar owner went back into the room because he heard the chain (which the dog was hanging from) rattle.

Definitely. So much American crap on telly all the time (have you seen some of the programmes aimed at teenagers? My God).
So much good stuff comes out of all the other countries, and one gets used to sub-titles after a while :)

To be honest, this thread hardly contains spoilers, as we are still none the wiser as to what is really going on! The series is very well crafted however and each episode opens up more questions.
