The Returned: Full Season 1 Discussion  Season 1 (Full Season)

In a small French mountain town, many dead people reappear, apparently alive and normal: teenage road crash victim Camille, suicidal bridegroom Simon, a small boy called "Victor" who was murdered by burglars, and Serge, a serial killer. They try to resume their lives as strange phenomena occur; amongst recurring power outages, the water level of the reservoir mysteriously lowers, revealing the presence of dead animals and a church steeple, and strange marks appear on the bodies of the living and the dead.

The Returned: Victor  Season 1, Episode 4

Julie is devastated when her ex-partner Laure takes Victor away from her to a local shelter run by Pierre. While there, Victor realises that Pierre is one of the two men that invaded his house when he was shot, thirty-five years ago. Thomas uses his home surveillance equipment to watch Adèle, who has reignited her relationship with Simon, and who introduces him to his daughter, pretending he is an "angel". Léna is rushed to hospital with a wound on her back that appears to have suddenly expanded from a scar left when her father Jérôme supposedly hit her a year before. Léna soon leaves the hospital, and still faint from her wound, is found by Serge. The water level at the reservoir continues to drop, but engineers can find no faults in the dam.
