Created by Bert V. Royal (‘Recovery Road’), ‘Cruel Summer’ is a teen mystery drama series that tells the story of two young women, Kate Wallis and Jeanette Turner, from the fictional town of Skylin, Texas, and how their lives are altered after their vice-principal, Martin Harris, kidnaps Kate. The show has three distinctive timelines — 1993, 1994, and 1995 — and each episode depicts the events on a specific date across three years.
Episode 6 revolves around the events of August 15 of 1993, 1994, and 1995, which is Greg and Cindy’s wedding anniversary. In 1993, Vince nearly gets caught after trying to shoplift as part of their bucket list, but Jeanette takes the blame instead. Later, she breaks into Martin’s house and hears Tennille’s mother, Tanya, who has accompanied Martin to his home, admit that her former husband doesn’t know that he isn’t Tennille’s biological father.
In 1994, Cindy tries to come to terms with the fact that her daughter is a liar. She finds the key to Martin’s home in Jeanette’s room and tries to speak to Greg about it, but her husband is not yet ready to accept that their daughter is capable of lying. This ends up causing a rift between them, and Cindy leaves to stay with her sister for now. Later, Greg discovers that the key is indeed for Martin’s home. In 1995, when Jeanette learns that Tanya is set to testify during the deposition, she threatens the older woman by saying that she will tell everyone about her (Tanya’s) paternity fraud. Here is what you should know about ‘Cruel Summer’s upcoming episode.
