Landscapers Episode 1 Spoilers
The first episode of ‘Landscapers’ shall introduce the surrealistic world of Christopher and Susan to the viewers. They are a middle-aged couple living in a town in northern France in the ’90s. Though both are extremely meek and struggling financially, we will see how they mentally live in romantic fantasies inspired by film memorabilia. The couple may use this as a coping mechanism, given their socially inactive lifestyle and unemployment issues. Frustrated by his failed job interview, Christopher will blurt out a secret to his stepmother about how he and Susan buried the latter’s parents in their old backyard in Mansfield many years ago.
The stepmother will report Christopher and Susan to the police, who will approach them after the said bodies are found. The couple will be taken into questioning after the bodies indeed get identified as that of Susan’s parents, William and Patricia Wycherley. Officer Emma, who is in charge of the case, will find Christopher’s claims of Susan’s innocence a bit fishy, so she will start to dig deep into the couple’s past.
