But Harry knows things are never quite what they seem, and she teams up with a maverick independent MP (Danielle Cormack), agreeing to be her media adviser in order to regain access to the corridors of power and get to the truth.
With key characters and dynamics established, the political thriller’s second season can dispense with the exposition and charge straight into its intricately woven tale – a taut conspiracy that’s better executed than the show’s initial run of episodes.
As we’re thrust back into the dark underbelly of Australian politics, the show doesn’t pause to spell things out for viewers, with the intrigue set to high and pieces slowly falling into place as the story unfolds. (Starts Mon., Mar. 4 at 8.30pm; Fox Showcase) 4.5 stars
