The Stranger on Netflix plot hole: What happened to Mike Tripp?

THE STRANGER on Netflix has gone down a storm with fans who binge watched the series. For those who have watched all eight episodes, they are curious to know what happens to one character.


By Katie Palmer
PUBLISHED: 22:14, Tue, Feb 11, 2020 | UPDATED: 22:34, Tue, Feb 11, 2020

The Stranger on Netflix came to an end when it was revealed Doug Tripp (played by Shaun Dooley) was responsible for killing Corinne Price (Dervla Kirwan). In the last episode Corinne’s husband Adam (Richard Armitage) finds out what Tripp did to his wife and gets his revenge. But Doug Tripp had a son, Mike (Brandon Fellows), and fans are wondering what happens to him.

What happened to Mike Tripp in The Stranger?

Mike brings the humour to this dark and eerie series and is always cracking jokes with his friends.

He is the son of Doug Tripp, a close family friend of Adam and Corinne Price.

Mike is best friends with Adam’s son Thomas (Jacob Dudman) and features as one of the main characters in the series.

He was responsible for cutting off the head of an alpaca after his drink was spiked.

Mike features in all eight episodes of the series, but fans are left wondering what happens to him at the end.

Once Doug Tripp confesses he knows where missing Corinne is, he takes Adam to a reservoir to see her.

However, when they get there, Doug reveals Corinne is dead and buried under their feet.

He had hit her with a hammer before she had the chance to reveal his secret about stealing money from their local football club.

Distraught and wanting Tripp to pay for what he has done, Adam takes a gun he has acquired along the way and shoots Tripp multiple times.

Tripp is clearly dead at the end of the series and a couple of months pass.

The final scenes show Adam watching his sons play football, and all has been forgotten.

But there is no sign of Mike Tripp and none of the characters mention his name.

This surprised fans considering Mike was such a prominent character in the show.

He had an important role to play and helped uncover a few secrets along the way.

There is a possibility Adam and Thomas have abandoned Mike, considering what his dad did.

Or Mike could have moved elsewhere to seek support after the death of his father.

Thomas and Mike saw each other every day as they lived close by and went to the same school.

This means it would be difficult for Thomas to avoid him unless he moved out of the area.

Fans are waiting to see if a second series of the show will reveal all about Mike.

A second series is yet to be confirmed but judging by the hype from the first season, it is set to be a hit.

The Stranger is available to watch on Netflix now

Where was 'The Stranger' filmed?


Based on a bestseller by thriller king Harlan Coben, the Netflix series 'The Stranger' takes place in a glossy, imprecise but still firmly recognisable north-west of England
By James Medd



For those yet to have binged on the ridiculously addictive The Stranger, it’s about a mysterious young woman (aka The Stranger, played by Hannah John-Kamen) who invades the comfortable and contented life of Adam Price (Richard Armitage), unearthing a network of secrets that wreak havoc throughout his picturesque hometown of Cedarfield. It’s based on a bestseller by thriller king Harlan Coben and while the intricate plot and extensive cast remain intact, there’s one big difference: the source novel was set in the USA with Coben’s Cedarfield in New Jersey, but if you're wondering where The Stranger was filmed, the Netflix adaptation takes place in a glossy, imprecise but still firmly recognisable north-west of England.

As Coben explained at the series launch, this had some distinct advantages: ‘We condensed the world. In the book, The Stranger is dropping bombs all over the country. Here, The Stranger is dropping the bombs in one community.’ It’s also firmly on trend, following a raft of recent projects filmed in the area, from Peaky Blinders to Years and Years, World on Fire to Cobra, as well as forthcoming BBC shows Life and The Barking Murders, and big-screen Spider-man spin-off Morbius. In fact, two previous Coben adaptations, Netflix’s Safe from 2018 and Sky One’s The Five from 2016, were filmed around Manchester and Liverpool respectively. But the question remains: where is this British Cedarfield?

The place to start is the Price family home, which has attracted a great deal of attention on social media. This is Park End House in Didsbury Park, a southern suburb of Manchester. A mid-19th-century build, it was previously a hall of residence for Manchester Polytechnic, and the Manchester Evening News reported a previous owner describing ‘two dilapidated kitchens, sinks in all the bedrooms, a tree growing out of the back room and a jungle of a garden’ – a far cry from the immaculate interior and garden area with hot tub we see on screen. As in the show, the house of the Prices’ neighbours, the Tripp family, is directly over the road; called Pine House, it’s Grade II-listed like Park End.
Netflix

From here Cedarfield’s identity gets hazier. The sports club where the Price sons play football is Monton Sports Club in Eccles, a town about four miles to the west. The crime scene in Episode 1, where DS Johanna Griffin (Siobhan Finneran) and DC Wesley Ross (Kadiff Kirwan) find a decapitated alpaca in a busy square, was shot in Bury, 10 miles to the north – that’s the Peel Memorial we see, a statue of the Victorian politician by Edward Hodges Baily, who also sculpted the statue atop Nelson’s Column.
Netflix

Some other key locations are in Bolton, 14 miles north-west. The police station is in the Old Magistrates Court in Le Mans Crescent, a Thirties classical building that sits alongside Bolton Central Library and Bolton Museum Art Gallery and Aquarium. The school the Price boys attend and where their mother Corrine (Dervla Kirwan) is a favourite teacher, is Bolton School, a private day school on Chorley New Road. With 2,400 pupils, it’s spread across several buildings: we see both the Victorian wings and the 2012 Sixth Form Centre, as well as the Great Hall with its full-size organ, venue for the prize evening in Episode 1. We also visit a Bolton landmark later in the series, when Episode 5 shows Johanna and her husband sharing a sandwich on the steps of the Town Hall, a proper Victorian statement of a building (pictured above).
Getty Images

That said, in terms of sheer numbers, Cedarfield is Manchester through and through. The Brown Sugar Café, run by Heidi (Jennifer Saunders), is over the road from Manchester Cathedral: called Café at the Cathedral, it’s a handy spot for visitors. In Episode 2, when Heidi meets her daughter ‘in town’, she’s over in St Peter’s Square (pictured above), under the colonnade of the Thiritess Town Hall extension. Just round the corner in The Great Northern is the All Star Lanes bowling alley where we meet another victim of The Stranger on a hen party, and a few streets further on is Hardman Square, where in Episode 4 we see Ed (Anthony Head) have his own Stranger-danger moment while leaving his office before a sit-down in a nearby restaurant, Blockhouse Grill on New York Street. Later in the same episode we see Adam meet an old flame for a drink in Gusto on Lloyd Street, while the scene of Episode 5’s undercover police operation is the Grand Pacific on Spring Gardens.
Getty Images

A little out of town is the old Spire Hospital in Whalley Range, used for The Stranger’s office in Episode 5, while in Episode 2 Adam tracks the mysterious Suzanne down to Great George Street in Salford – that’s the clocktower of St Philip’s Church looming over the modern block. Further afield is the alpaca farm in Episode 1 where the animals are named after boyband members: it’s White Peak Alpaca Farm in Mobberley, 15 miles to the south. The viaduct where the Prices find themselves after a long search in Episode 4 is in Martholme, 30 miles north.
Netflix

If anywhere can stake a claim to being ‘the real Cedarfield’, though, it’s probably Stockport. That’s the town’s railway station in Episode 4 and its Plaza cinema, where The Stranger is working in Episode 5. In Episode 7, Adam chases a lead along its streets, passing through the boutique shopping area of Underbank before he reaches the Market Hall (pictured above), the covered shopping area that dates back to the 1860s and was recently refurbished. Known as the Glass Umbrella, it’s an instantly recognisable landmark, used here as the setting for Heidi’s café. Tellingly, it’s also front and centre for our first view of Cedarfield at the very start of the series, rising up over the town. So now we know the truth.

‘The Stranger’ is streaming on Netflix

‘Buffy’ icon Anthony Head back as ‘The Stranger’ on Netflix

By Lauren Sarner

February 14, 2020 | 5:28pm


Anthony Head surprised his on-screen son when he showed up to the table read for the new thriller series “The Stranger.”

“I got to play Richard Armitage’s father,” says Head, 65. “Which, bless him — when we met at the read-through he said, ‘You’re too young to play my father!’ I said, ‘Well how old are you? Actually, you were supposed to have been had when me and his mother were 18.’ That actually works out. Literally, mathematically, it’s right.”

Based on a Harlan Coben novel of the same name and filmed in Manchester, England, “The Stranger” (on Netflix) is a British thriller following a family thrown into chaos when they encounter a mysterious figure who reveals unsavory secrets, including secret babies and affairs. Richard Armitage (“Hannibal”) stars as Adam Price, who first gets a visit from the stranger (Hannah John-Kamen, “Game of Thrones”). She doesn’t seem to be doing this for blackmail, or any clear purpose, for that matter.

Head co-stars as Adam’s estranged father, Edgar Price — the instigator on many of the secrets and lies.

“First of all, it’s Harlan Coben. You know straight away that you’re going to get something which is not only a page-turner, but he has such a handle on humanity,” Head says. “All of his ideas are like, ‘Bloody hell, I wish I’d thought of that!’ So as soon as it came through I was like, ‘Yes, whatever, thank you, I’ll do it!’”

Head describes Edgar as a narcissist, a role he relished to play since he doesn’t want to be typecast.

“It’s something that I’ve worked quite hard at over the years, not to be pigeonholed, for someone to say, ‘Oh that’s him, that’s what he does,’” he says. “It was a really enjoyable character. Ultimately he is the driving force in what’s going on in Adam Price’s life. It’s also a story about a father and son being estranged. I like it when a part develops and grows, and you think it’s one thing and you go, ‘Oh, actually this is going down a very interesting route.’ ”

Head, who will also be seen on Jason Sudeikis’ Apple+ series “Ted Lasso,” is also known for shows such as “Merlin” and “Vanity Fair.” He’s most famous to American TV audiences as Rupert Giles, the Watcher and pseudo-father figure to Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) on cult hit “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” (1997-2003).

“[Fans still bring it up] quite a lot, actually,” he says. “It does span the generations. I still don’t understand how it never came away with any Emmys, or any of those awards. People [tell me] how much it meant to them at the time they were growing up, how it resonated, and bless them. They quite often say Giles was the father figure that was missing in their lives for various reasons. I think that’s part of it’s longevity. It hit home. It’s quite remarkable.

“When we did the pilot … [creator Joss Whedon] said, ‘This is going to be a hit, and it’s not going to be because the powers that be are behind it — they don’t know what they’ve got. It’s going to be something that is made a hit by word of mouth. People are just going to get it and tell each other.’

“And that’s exactly what happened.”

A ‘Buffy’ reboot is in development (with no announced date yet) and Head says he’s game to appear in it, if asked. “Yes. I wouldn’t know what as, because Giles has aged a little bit,” he says. “Maybe I’m the head of the Watcher’s council now. But to be honest, of course I would. It was so formative.”

Bestselling Creator Harlan Coben on ‘The Stranger’ and Adapting His Novels for Netflix Across the World

on February 14, 2020

By Team BingePost

Harlan Coben has been a bestselling thriller writer for many years, however till a couple of years in the past the one adaptation of his books was the acclaimed 2006 French function movie “Inform No One.” Quick-forward 14 years, and the New Jersey-based writer has a 14-book take care of Netflix that’s already resulted in British-set collection “The 5,” “Protected” and now “The Stranger” in partnership with Nicola Shindler’s Pink Manufacturing Firm. As author and producer, he’s arising with each authentic concepts and adapting his prolific output of novels, in addition to getting concerned in all the things from casting to hairdos.

“The Stranger,” the story of a suburban dad who will get drawn right into a darkish conspiracy when his spouse goes lacking, is presently certainly one of Netflix’s buzziest reveals. Stars embrace Richard Armitage of “Hannibal,” “The Crying Sport” star Stephen Rea, “Completely Fabulous” actress Jennifer Saunders and “Completely satisfied Valley” star Siobhan Finneran.

Coben is having fun with the fan interplay that comes with a well-liked streaming title whereas engaged on a brand new collection tailored from “The Woods” with Netflix Poland and “The Harmless,” starring well-liked actor Mario Casas, from Netflix Spain. His newest novel, “The Boy From the Woods,” Selection caught up with him a couple of days after the premiere of “The Stranger,” which seems to be his most-viewed collection but and is out there in 190 international locations.

Why do the tales you write lend themselves so nicely to the episodic format?


I feel when you’ve gotten the liberty a streaming service offers you, you don’t must make 22 episodes. It’s kind of like a novel. Every episode is sort of a chapter, you’ve gotten cliffhangers, and also you don’t need to put it down. Some individuals might take every week or two to complete it, some individuals will take a day. It really has extra in widespread with the novel than any format we’ve had earlier than.

Are individuals burning via the eight episodes too quick, or is there no such factor?

That’s actually satisfying. In case you inform me you watched episodes one and two and you’ll wait every week to observe three and 4, that’s a bit disappointing. I hope that the story offers you that type of starvation. It’s superb how many individuals have watched the entire thing already. I awoke the day after the present got here out and there have been tons of posts and questions already, everywhere in the world — that’s the opposite factor that’s type of outstanding, particularly with Netflix.

How are viewers experiencing the present? Is that this new so that you can get a lot suggestions?

I type of love the starvation — after individuals watch it, they’re on Reddit, they’re on Fb. Individuals argue about it, they focus on it, and I feel it simply will get extra individuals inquisitive about it. Thus far nobody’s actually discovered a gap within the plot!

What’s it like having your American-set novels tailored all over the world?

“The Woods” from Netflix Poland is actually totally different from “The Stranger,” way more atmospheric and moody and centered on two characters, it’s actually superbly accomplished.

How do the tales change from the books in several international locations?

I don’t like diversifications which might be slavishly dedicated to the textual content. “The Stranger” is thru a British prism — it provides a brand new dimension, despite the fact that on the floor they’re terribly American.

What did you should change?

One of many challenges in “The Stranger” was that police don’t carry weapons in England. A few occasions I’d have needed Joanna to tug out a gun. However she will’t, as a result of she doesn’t have one. In “The Woods,” it’s set in a Polish summer time camp within the ’90s — that’s very totally different than an American summer time camp, so it’s very cool to discover.

Why are crime tales so well-liked proper now?

We stay in a golden age of crime fiction. It’s by no means been accomplished higher by a greater variety of individuals and genders and nationalities. A present like “The Stranger” offers them much more time to be with these characters.

What was it like working together with your 25-year outdated daughter Charlotte on “The Stranger”?


She wrote episode 5, and was actually useful with the teenager story. I feel it’s a reasonably hilarious scene when Mike is screaming that he wasn’t the one who despatched the images — that was all written by my daughter. She gave us a youthful viewpoint, and she or he’s very humorous. Her expertise is in humor.

I used to be really laughing out loud — I confirmed it to my different youngsters they usually stated “Oh my god, that’s so Charlotte.”

How did Jennifer Saunders occur to affix the solid after her lengthy profession in comedy?

They despatched an inventory of 100 actresses in that age vary — I noticed her title and I assumed she wouldn’t do it, however she stated “I adore it and I need to do it.” So I wrote a letter to her and stated I do know you’ve by no means accomplished a drama, however I actually need you. I’ve been a fan of hers for thus lengthy.

How concerned do you get in manufacturing?

I don’t go on set as a result of it’s arduous, I stay in the united statesA, however each single day I watch the rushes. Day by day I talk with my staff over there, I watched over 300 audition tapes…I even see outfits and hairstyles. The actors all have my cellphone or e-mail if they’ve any questions.

Is there any considered doing one other season?

My guess is I gained’t need to try this, until I can provide you with an concept that’s equally good or higher. A part of the deal I make with the viewer is you get all of the solutions — it’s a full novel. However I by no means say by no means.

Theoretically the Stranger may reappear?

She may. If we got here up with an concept that might be nearly as good, then sure.

What are you watching today?

It’s such a cliche, however “Parasite” was my favourite film final yr. I knew nothing getting into. I feel that’s one of the simplest ways to see it — getting into and understanding nothing. And “Fleabag” was by far my favourite present of the yr.

I’m an enormous fan of overseas movies and overseas TV. I’m hoping viewers will give the overseas language ones an opportunity after “The Stranger,” as a result of after a when you actually do overlook you’re watching subtitles.

Will There Be A 'The Stranger' Series 2?

By L'Oréal Blackett
Feb 17, 2020

The Stranger has got all the ingredients for a stream-worthy Netflix drama; explosive family secrets, scandal, blackmail, murder and more twists and turns than an Olympic gymnast. Adapted from bestselling author Harlan Coben’s novel of the same name, the British thriller has topped the Netflix UK charts for good reason. With an ambiguous (and mildly infuriating) ending, will The Stranger be back for Series 2?

Well, it looks promising. The exhilarating miniseries first appeared on Netflix UK on January 30, 2020. It follows family man Adam Price (Richard Armitage), who gets approached by a stranger (clue is in the title), which leads to him getting entangled in a mysterious and wild conspiracy about his missing wife. Filmed in Manchester, the series is packed with British stars including Ab-Fab legend Jennifer Saunders, Hollywood actor Richard Armitage (Hobbit, Hannibal, Ocean's 8) and Anthony Head who many will fondly remember as 'Giles' in Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

With a glowing response from viewers on social media (the show has been trending on Twitter, as Hello! reports) and an open ending to the first series, calls for a second series are pretty inevitable. Bustle UK reached out to Netflix but the streaming platform is yet to confirm if we're in line for another bonkers bit of television. Nonetheless, The Stranger's author Harlan Coben has a 14-book deal with Netflix, 'that’s already resulted in British-set series The Five, Safe and now The Stranger.'

In a recent interview with Variety magazine, Coben remained evasive about the potential for a follow-up series. He said: "My guess is I won’t want to do that, unless I can come up with an idea that’s equally good or better. Part of the deal I make with the viewer is you get all the answers — it’s a full novel. But I never say never."

The Stranger season 2: latest news on new Netflix series after open season 1 ending
The door was left open for a second series at the conclusion of the season one finale


By Finlay Greig

Monday, 17th February 2020, 6:11 pm

16 hours ago

The Stranger is the latest Netflix original to take the internet by storm, gripping viewers with the unsettling tale of the Price family.

Adapted from Harlan Coben's novel of the same name, the eight-part thriller set in Manchester sees a mysterious stranger reveal a dark family secret, the destructive nature of which threatens to tear the Prices apart.

As well as garnering a large following, the drama has earned critical acclaim with reviewers labelling the drama "bingeable" and compelling, with one hooked critic describing the suspense dram as "anxiety-inducing".

Series one of The Stranger reached a thrilling conclusion in episode eight, but fans are already demanding another series of the drama - here's what you need to know about the show's finale, as well as any potential second series.

What happened in series 1?

Adam Price (Richard Armitage) is approached by a mysterious stranger who reveals that his wife, Corinne, faked a pregnancy and a subsequent miscarriage years ago, an event which saw Adam stay with his now wife. The stranger also plants the idea in the married man's head that his two sons with Corinne may not be his.

Corinne then goes missing, and Adam embarks on a mission to get to the bottom of the explosive secret.

The Stranger, seemingly capable of destroying life's with a single secret, targets everyone she come sinto contact with, blackmailing and threatening them with secrets she has inexplicably obtained.

Shady policeman Patrick Katz is one such person to get swept up into the Stranger's secret spreading, when he is hired to carry out some illegal private investigation work on behalf of a man named Powers who is being blackmailed by the mysterious, nameless woman. This brings him into contact with Heidi (Jennifer Saunders), the mother of a girl who is in a relationship with Powers.

When Heidi quizzes Katz, the policeman panics and shoots Heidi, for fear that his investigations will come to light.

Adam eventually tracks down the stranger and it turns out she is motivated by her own parents' infidelity - she's determined to punish people for their own dark and damaging secrets.

The final big plot twist comes in episode eight when the stranger reveals that she is in fact Adam's half-sister, and that she told Adam about Corinne because of their kinship.

It also becomes apparent that Corinne fled from Adam because she had become entangled in a plot to embezzle money from the local football club. Corinne is aware of the man responsible, Doug Tripp, who for fear of being exposed murders Adam's wife.

Enraged by his findings, Adam murders Tripp, only to cover it up with the help of detective Johanna Griffin.

The show ends with the surviving characters trying to live their lives as normal despite the horrific events of the series. The final shot is shows the stranger watching over the characters and perhaps hinting at a further season.

Will there be a Season 2?

Show creators Netflix have also yet to confirm whether there will be a second season of the thrilling story.

But judging by the buzz surrounding the show, Netflix will likely be considering a second season and the plot has certainly left room for a second season with the same characters.

But Harlan Coben revealed to Radio Times that he wasn't intending on pursuing a second season, stating: “it’s not our plan. Our plan is to give you one great, great season.”

The ambiguous finale, however, suggests that the stranger could be in line to return and reveal the dark secrets created in series two - such as the truth about the murders of Doug Tripp and Heidi - and set off another season of chaos.

When could we expect a second season?

If a second season were to be commissioned it would be reasonable to assume that it would arrive a year after the first series.

This would mean waiting until January 2021 for a second season.

Explaining the End Of Netflix's 'The Stranger,' Plus Will There Be a Season 2?

By Dustin Rowles | TV | February 15, 2020 | 17 Comments



Let’s start with the second question first: Will there be a second season of Netflix’s The Stranger? Maybe, but it is unlikely. The series is based on a closed-ended Harlan Coben novel and neither the book nor the series was designed with a sequel in mind. Coben has written dozens of novels, so I suspect that both he and Netflix would be more inclined to simply adapt another one — like last year’s Safe with Michael C. Hall — than force another story for these characters for the sake of another season.

“We don’t think it’s fair to have one of those shows where they don’t give you all the answers, and you have to wait until season two before you get it,” Coben told Digital Spy. “This is a closed story. You learned all the answers by the end, and the ending is tremendously satisfying.”

“Could some of the characters return to season two? Maybe, but that’s not our plan,” he added. “I never say never, but it’s not our plan. Our plan is to give you one great, great season.”

But was the ending of The Stranger “tremendously satisfying,” as Coben suggests? Yes and no. The series, which is an easy eight-episode binge, follows a character named Adam (Richard Armitage), who is approached during his kid’s soccer game by a stranger (Hannah John-Kamen) and told that his wife, Corrine (Dervla Kirwan), faked a miscarriage and gives Adam enough information to corroborate the story. Before Adam can get any answers out of his wife, however, she disappears. The bulk of the story concerns Adam’s effort to discover who kidnapped his wife and to find her.

How’d that go? SPOILERS

Not so well, actually. The stranger confronts a number of other people and blackmails them, and Adam and a police officer, Johanna Griffin (Siobhan Finneran), essentially triangulate all the others who were blackmailed, which leads to the revelation that the stranger is Adam’s sister, the product of one of the many affairs his asshole of a father (Anthony Head) had.

Adam also discovers that Doug Trip (Shaun Dooley), the asshole neighbor/friend across the street, is not only responsible for abducting his wife but killing and burying her in the forest. As it turns out, Doug was embezzling money from the private school. Corrine — a teacher at the school — found out about it and refused to keep quiet, so Doug murdered her. Doug not only confesses this to Adam, but he believes that Adam will also keep this information to himself, because if Corrine were found murdered, Adam would be the first suspect (Doug had left some breadcrumbs leading back to Adam in the event he was caught). Adam, however, simply shot and killed Doug, a murder that was witnessed by Johanna — the detective — and covered up, because she reasoned that there was absolutely no point in depriving Adam’s kids of their father. Johanna and Adam pin Corinne’s murder on Katz, a shady cop who accepted large sums of money to murder a blackmail threat for a client in order to raise money to care for his sick daughter, who is inexplicably fed rat poison by her mother as part of a pointless Munchausen by Proxy storyline. The woman he murdered just happened to be the best friend of Johanna.

It all ends a little too neatly, but the killer is mostly a surprise and while I wouldn’t say it’s “tremendously satisfying,” it is satisfying enough. At least where it concerns Adam, his wife’s murderer, and The Stranger.

But then there is a storyline involving a group of teens — including Adam’s kid and his friends — written specifically for the TV series (read: filler) that fizzles out. It involves a party out in the forest, some MDMA, a teenager decapitating an alpaca, another teenager with a stalker-like crush on Corinne, and a groundskeeper at the school who also hangs out in the woods. A kid at the party is discovered naked and unconscious and nearly dies, and how he wound up in that state is investigated throughout the series. Ultimately, the kid doesn’t die, his near-death experience had nothing to do with the main storyline, and no one suffers any major consequences. It’s a completely unnecessary storyline that could have shaved a full episode off the series and left it a tight, gripping seven episodes. That was the series biggest weakness, save for the belief that a baseball cap is an effective disguise.

What to watch on Netflix in February: 10 surprisingly good movies and shows you might’ve missed



By Zach Epstein @zacharye

Each and every month, we’re always sure to tell you about all the new content coming to Netflix. There are always so many new shows and movies that are added to the Netflix content catalog each and every month that you’ll undoubtedly miss some of it without a guide. Seriously, just look at all the movies, shows, specials, and Netflix originals that are debuting over the course of the month in February alone! People love the release schedules that we publish each month, but we also started running a different type of Netflix roundup a couple of months ago that people have really responded to.

Because there’s so much new content added to Netflix all the time, it’s far too easy to let shows and movies slip through the cracks that you might have really enjoyed. With that in mind, we’ve started rounding up 10 shows and movies each month that you might have missed. Some are brand new, some are years old, some are Netflix originals, and some are from other studios. The one common thread is that all these movies and shows are surprisingly great, so you should definitely add them to your queue if you happened to miss them the first time around. And once you’re done with this month’s roundup, be sure to check out our posts from the past few months for even more great movies and shows to consider.

The Stranger on Netflix: How did Corinne really die? Was Adam’s dream real?
THE STRANGER proved to be one of the most popular shows on Netflix this year and fans are recommending the series to others. Some have asked what actually happens to Adam's wife Corinne towards the end of the show.

The Stranger on Netflix focuses on one family in particular: Adam Price (played by Richard Armitage), his wife Corinne (Dervla Kirwan) and their two sons. The stranger (Hannah John-Kamen) tells Adam his wife has lied to him by faking a pregnancy. When Adam finds out the truth Corinne mysteriously disappears and her family is worried she is dead.

How did Corinne really die?

Kirwan’s character Corinne only physically features in the first episode of the series.

Her husband Adam finds out from the stranger she faked a pregnancy and a miscarriage in order to persuade him to stay with her.

Corinne found out Adam had cheated on her with another woman he worked with, and wanted a reason to make him stay with her.

She bought a fake bump and baby scans online to fool Adam into believing her pregnancy - a secret he later finds out through the stranger.

Corinne explains to Adam there is more to the story than she thinks and then she mysteriously disappears.

The rest of the series follows Adam as he tries to find his wife, concerned she has been killed or kidnapped.

Corinne only appears in the series through flashbacks and memories from this point forward.

Throughout the series he calls upon the help of an ex-cop Martin Killane (Stephen Rea) to help find his missing wife.

Martin, Adam and his two sons - Thomas (Jacob Dudman) and Ryan (Misha Handley) - use a tracking app to try and find her.

The app leads them to a bridge above a river in the middle of the countryside and Adam follows his sons to the spot where Corinne is supposedly hiding.

However, when they get to the bridge the only thing left at the scene is her mobile phone - she is nowhere to be seen.

Her sons are worried she may have jumped off the bridge, taking her own life, but Adam says she would never do that and suggests she may have just dropped her phone.

During the night he has a dream about Corinne falling from the bridge and at first viewers think the scene is real.

However, Adam wakes up after being shouted at by his sons and it is revealed he was having a nightmare about his wife’s death.

Fans have taken to Reddit to find out more about how Corinne died and whether the dream scene was significant.

One fan said: “I thought we saw her jump off a bridge earlier in the season? I was surprised when it turned out how she was killed since it didn’t match up with what I thought happened. Am I missing something major?”

Other fans explained it was a dream, saying it was sometimes hard to tell what was real and what was imagination.

The dream only appears once in the series and seems to be Adam’s worst nightmare of what may have happened to his wife.

At the end of the series it is revealed Corinne did not die the way Adam had dreamt.

She had in fact been murdered by Adam’s friend Doug Tripp (Shaun Dooley) in order to stop her revealing one of his secrets.

Corinne had found out Doug had stolen money from their local football club in order to support his family.

She had found out the truth and was going to tell everyone it was him who stole the cash.

In order to silence her Doug picks up a tool and hits Corinne over the head with it. He then buries her in the woods at a reservoir.

The Stranger is available to watch on Netflix now
