The Missing Season 2 Episode 2 “The Turtle and the Stick” :- Watch The Missing Season 2 Episode 2 “The Turtle and the Stick” on Youtube on Fire,Like the trusty coma, dementia is the perfect illness for a thriller. It enables writers to store key information inside a character and release it precisely when the plot demands without anyone being able to scream ‘but why didn’t you say that weeks ago?!’. Characters suffering from dementia can legitimately flit in and out of lucidity, giving away nothing until the time comes for them to give away everything. Danny Brocklehurst knew that in 2011 BBC thriller Exile, and the writers of The Missing know it too.In the present day, we learn that Roger Allam’s Adrian Stone is a dementia sufferer. Back in 2014 we also learn that he had an existing connection to the girl we know as Alice Webster, and a dark secret. The final, revelatory line of week two was her asking him “How can you live with yourself after what you’ve done?” Post-It Notes at the ready, write this down: Other than tell traumatic stories about turtles, what did Stone do? Did he abduct Sophie and Alice? Did he collude in their imprisonment? Whatever it is, he appears to have a hold over Alice that’s keeping her quiet. She must stand to lose something very important to go along with his charade. And if Baptiste is right about Sophie pretending to be Alice, does the same thing explain the decision not to return to her own life but to assume the other girl’s identity?The dialogue in Stone and Alice’s scene was carefully written for maximum ambiguity, but the performances – her slight wince when he sat down beside her, her bitter reproach to him that she’s always been able “to see”, the menace behind his words to her that she’s no longer a child (and thus can be tried as an adult for a crime, perhaps?) and his slight, deliberate pause before calling her Alice – seemed to tell a clear story about their shared past. Overall though, this is far from a clear story. It’s a long one, as Julien Baptiste wryly told his journo pal this week. Eight episodes long to be precise, which gives us six more in which to find out why Baptiste is still pursuing Alice and Sophie’s abductor two years after they arrested the man incriminated both by that receipt and Alice’s testimony.
