Secrets, lies, and deceit: three things that make up crime shows and murder mysteries. I Know What You Did Last Summer has used this as the premise from the very beginning. It’s been the glue that holds the show together. The tangled web of lies that keep piling on one another after each episode. It’s been a fun watch, and between the last episode and this one, it is finally coming to a conclusion.

Last episode of I Know What You Did Last Summer, we saw Dylan (Ezekiel Goodman), Riley (Ashley Moore), and Clara (Brooke Bloom) in the cave, and it was a very confusing ending. We seem to have possibly gotten our happy-ish ending. Our dead souls are laid to rest, and it seems like all is right. Margot (Brianne Tju) goes to rehab again, and Ezekiel and Lennon (Madison Iseman) seem to be having the time of their lives. As usual, things go haywire, All of the perfection slowly dies and chaos reigns as an expected but unexpected fallout happens.
Chaconne Martin-Berkowics writes a screenplay that involves a ton of trickery and very strange language. Logan Kibens takes this script and does wonders with it. Martin-Berkowics’ slow pace plays well with the story’s giant build-up. The entire episode plays like the season finale, and it’s just a great drop. Kibens navigates it like a true director, and simply helps give a mind-blowing episode. We definitely are in for a wild ending next week.
Iseman and Goodman have incredible chemistry. They work so well together and it’s a beautiful thing. Tju adds to that chemistry and the trio is absolutely amazing. This episode is a collection of good performances, and they elevate an already great script. From the original films to this show, this group right here has the best chemistry. This isn’t recency bias and I’m not trying to take anything away from the original cast, but this group has been exceeding expectations.
This wasn’t my favorite episode by any means, but that’s simply because I wanted more chaos than we got. This was very well put together though, and again I applaud this team for putting this together and pulling this off. They’ve revived an iconic property and done it justice. I am looking forward to the season finale, and I hope we get a more than fantastic ending. – Rascal F. Kennedy
