Harrow–Season 1, Episode 8 (Peccata Patrisi)

Refreshingly, this episode had three subplots and didn’t put the Quinn subplot front and centre.

The episode kicks off with a rower discovering the body of a young fellow rower, Rhys Weir (Earl John) who has seemingly slipped and hit his head on the pier, but of course it’s not that easy. We are given the all-too obvious red herring of Rhys being on the receiving end of a nasty comment on Instagram after unintentionally breaking his school’s 8-year winning streak in the scull, just before the reveal that Rhys was openly gay. While the case feels garden variety at first with obvious red herrings being dealt with, the discovery of Rhys’ seminal plasma hypersensitivity, or semen allergy, made it interesting.
