Brain Yorkey wrote Episode 2 of the Netflix series Echoes entitled Party.

She asked Dylan to find her before she did something terrible, and a flashback confirmed her request. Gina was shown in Echoes writing in her notebook about how much she loathes being a twin and how she would kill Leni even if she had to do it herself. When Leni found out about the diary entry, they decided to share it and no longer keep secrets from each other.

Summary of Echoes Season 1 Episode 3

Later, the diary grew into her online diary entries, but it’s obvious that Leni never forgot the betrayal. On the day of their birth, the entire community was invited to the twins’ birthday party in the present. Leni revealed her lies about Gina’s whereabouts at breakfast when this happened in Echoes. She later discovered that Sheriff Floss was investigating the nearby church fire and thought there might be a connection between this and “Lenis”‘s disappearance.

At the beginning of the seventh episode of Echoes, Leni and Gina realize that they are the only ones in the burning house. Leni encourages them to stick together, but Gina goes upstairs instead because I think walking upstairs is a great idea when the building is on fire.

Anyway, Leni stalks her sister and pursues her with an axe. Leni has memories of the past when she enters the toilet, and now it all makes sense. Leni, not Gina, watched her father suffocate Marie in the bathtub while her mother was ill. Because of this, Gina was taken aback by Victor’s final statements in the previous episode. This also explains why Leni is so unpredictable and driven to control things for so long, as shown by her unconcern when Robert was in the burning church.


However, Leni and Gina manage to escape from the burning house and after a cat-and-mouse game through the forest, they finally reach safety. Leni presents herself as the evil twin after her mask is gone. Leni follows Gina, who hobbles through the forest after twisting her ankle. The girls eventually start fighting in the water above a giant waterfall.

Leni met up with Meg while posing as Gina to talk about Leni. She noted that “Leni” changed her behavior to the point where she actually harmed Meg when she realized Dylan was back in town. Leni put on her old clothes and went to Dylan’s grandmother to inquire about his whereabouts and to find out more about the church fire. Leni rushed to the bank after receiving a call about a 6,000,000 bank transfer scheduled for that afternoon. She arrived and saw Gina and Dylan exit the building. When she tried to catch up, they sped away in Dylan’s truck. Leni then went to the bank with Gina’s ID and withdrew the money. Check out this space for more developments.


Gina argues that Victor didn’t actually kill Marie. The petals of an apple blossom in the bath indicate that everything was prepared. After all, her father wasn’t a monster. However, Gina reconsiders and makes the decision to jump down the waterfall to give Leni another chance at reconciliation.

Floss subsequently discovers a lion spell on the ground and among the burning debris. Jack comments that it belongs to the twins after she shows him. Leni eventually returns home, where she tells Floss the story of how Gina killed Dylan. She’s not there to defend herself, so Floss looks at her and realizes how awfully practical this whole situation is.


In response, Charlie visits Leni and declares his love for Gina and Leni. But as we all know from his writings, he loved Leni a little bit more because she supposedly smelled better.

At the station, Floss makes the decision that she needs to sift through the evidence to find evidence that Leni is lying and that she actually started the fire. The charred lion pendant of the final fire is conveniently discovered by Paula as she searches the evidence box. We’re finally in business!


At a snack, Paula meets Leni and shows her the charm of the lion. The first plan is to make it appear that Paula is trying to help Leni while slowing down Floss. In reality, this is all a ploy to trick her into confessing and implicate her. Unfortunately, Leni sneaks out the back, dodging all the cops and making it to the airport unharmed.

Leni makes an attempt to flee the nation while flaunting her passport and posing as Kira, the identity on one of the fake passports previously seen in the series.


This is obviously a pretty stupid move considering that Gina really is deceased and the police would have already uploaded her picture to the database. Additionally, Floss would no doubt have alerted local law officials that they may have a murder suspect on the run. So definitely not.

In fact, airport worker Leni chats with notes that someone resembling her passed yesterday on the way to Kansas. If Gina is responsible for this, then she probably used Leni’s passport for it. However, it’s not really explained, and midway through, Floss gets a letter in the mail from an unknown sender containing a USB stick.


How does Echoes season 1 end?

At the bookstore, Charlie gives a speech in support of his new book, Leni and Gina. It seems that Gina is still alive too. She and Charlie wait at Charlie’s while he gets ready. But someone comes with a hat and glasses and asks about Gina’s missing body, giving the impression that it is Leni.

Charlie promises to find out which twin is which when the show wraps up, and Gina reveals that she’s back with Charlie because she has some things to do right.


The Episode Analysis

As a result, Echoes gets completely lost in this final episode, with a ridiculous and absurd twist at the end, along with some pretty big police-related plot devices. Furthermore, it seems incredibly clumsy and contrived that Floss would simply pull back to construct a larger investigation while failing to notify the airport and other areas that they have a runaway at large.

There are also a few loose ends that haven’t been resolved, such as the reason for Leni’s confusion about having a nanny in her house, Jack’s debt storyline, as well as the very clear twist at the end when Victor helps Marie commit suicide.


The over-the-top and rather cheesy ocean battle is the culmination of the hackneyed good twin/bad twin course we end up taking. But again, there’s not really enough material to support a second season, especially considering the show bills itself as a miniseries despite teasing for more episodes. I don’t know about you guys to be honest, but that seems a little deceiving.

In the end, this thriller falls into the category of thrillers that overestimate their level of ingenuity. While some of the twists were executed well, others seriously flopped due to serious violations of logic and pacing. It’s a shame really because there’s potential and brief moments of fun, especially in Episode 5 when the puzzle pieces fit together. However, this ultimately falls short of expectations.
