Moments later, Andy asks Ally if she is free that weekend. He invites her out and insists they need to talk. The group packs their bags and prepare to leave. Andy takes the couple into the middle of nowhere. They enter a cabin, which Andy and his ex-wife used frequently. While putting away her clothing, Cath finds a picture of Andy with his wife.

She explains that they need to stick up for each other. She also encourages Cath to change the paperwork.
It seems that Cath complies. She scours through Brigitte’s desk and finds a bottle of vodka.
Trust Me Review
The review above is short and possibly full of errors. At this point, I do not have the patience to perfect the recaps, because the show is so tediously boring. I switched it off about 40 minutes in and switched over to Hurricane Harvey coverage. I just cannot get into this show. The premise is unique and the story could be good, but it falls well short. I am also beginning to worry about Jodie Whittaker as Dr. Who.
While I think she is a great actress, she seems to be a little one dimensional. Most of her roles have little to no personality. I am not sure she will fit into the Dr. Who role, which calls for a little more insanity. I could be wrong and hope I am. Trust me on this one. Trust Me isn’t worth your time. The episode scores a dismal 4.5 out of 10. Catch up with previous recaps of Trust Me now.
