Description

Debra Newell is a successful interior designer. She meets John Meehan, a handsome man who seems to check all the boxes: attentive, available, just back from a year in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders. But her family doesn’t like John, and they get entangled in an increasingly complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial, and ultimately, survival. Reported and hosted by Christopher Goffard from the L.A. Times.

I see that so many people here are quick to blame the victim in this situation. It's always easier to see abuse from the outside looking in, but when you're actually IN the relationship, it is SO much more difficult to see the wool being pulled over your eyes. This man manipulated Debbie, he figured out how to exploit her emotions to the point where she questioned everything about herself, and her family's intentions. We can see how horrible John is because he's not manipulating us. Let's not forget who the victim is here. Debbie certainly does not need to be berated, she needed help seeing John for who he is.

Debbie has issues and should stop being in relationships until she develops boundaries with guys. Her psychologist is an idiot.
