Highlights

A Good Setup For Something More

There is a lot setup that you’d want to see explored further. Is Penelope adopted, and if so, why? What’s going on in Jessie’s household that she is now living with her aunt and uncle? Also, in terms of Maureen, is she truly going to let what she suspects go, or is she just trying to avoid making a scene in front of company. The wheels are turning, and it’ll make you wish more of “Hidden” could be coming soon.
