Sharp Objects Review (Season 1, Episode 2)
Share This Article:
The second episode of Sharp Objects was just as frustrating and thrilling as the first. We are teased with scraps of information and yet are gifted no answers to the multitude of questions we are left with. I will warn you, this series is looking to be somewhat of a slow burner, I’m not holding out hope of getting answers anytime soon. But still, despite not giving anything away, this series remains to be inescapably intriguing. After the body of the second missing girl, Natalie Keene is found in episode one; this episode focuses predominantly on her funeral and the wake that is held in her family home. We as the audience are aligned with Camille, who is observing her fellow mourners, taking notes and forming her impressions on the attendees, learning more about everyone around her as we are. Camille’s venture into Natalie’s room reveals more about the murder victim; she has two lists of names on her mirror titled ‘like’ and ‘hate’ and from the football and spider memorabilia in her room she was something of a tomboy. Camille’s half sister Amma spitefully remarks that killer doesn’t go after the ‘cool’ girls. Suspect number one at the minute is Natalie Keene’s brother, the socially awkward and slightly outcast John Keene, but that seems too obvious for now. Throughout the episode slowly but surely we are given a clearer insight into the community of Wind Gap as well as a sharper understanding of the complex dynamics at work within the family of central character, Camille Preaker.
