They call me RIP.
I’m a killer. A murderer. A psychopath.
In the eyes of the righteous, I’m a monster, born of sin and depravity.
I want to protect her, but I’m not a good man.
I want to love her, but I no longer feel.
She gets under my skin, though, and has awakened something inside of me.
Something I’d kill for.
I’m not her savior—not even close. In fact, I’m worse than the hell she’s already suffered.
I’m her vengeance. Tit for tat, as they say.
And if she’s not careful, I’ll be her ruin.


For months, I’ve watched him.
I’ve fantasized him as my savior, my lover. My ticket out of the hell I’ve lived in for the last six years.
I never dreamed he’d be my nightmare.
Had I known what he really is, I’d have never gotten in the car that night, but life is full of cause and effect.
And sometimes the choice on offer isn’t a choice at all.
It’s the result of something already in motion, and we’re merely left to survive the ripple effect.


ARC provided in exchange for an honest review.

Episode 3 continues with Ripley and Dylan’s story towards their end game. As Dylan worked to straightened her life, she and Ripley started to get comfortable with each other, but being comfortable in their lifestyle could be a very dangerous thing.

He’s not my savior. He’s an angel with black wings. A dealer of death. My ruin.

This time around we got to learn more about Rip’s past – the path that paved the way to what he became today. He also started to show more vulnerabilities and that made him even more lovable to me.

A woman like that is dangerous for a man like me, but letting her go is no longer an option.

Dylan as usual, tend to have a rebellious streak that thrown her into predicaments. But I did like how fearless she was even when she’s acting irrationally.

We’re fucked up— two wrongs that somehow make a right.

Questions were answered in this episode and now it’s up for the characters to make their moves. I’m betting for an explosive finale for this engaging series.

Final Verdict:
