Paloma May 6, 2021 Share May 6, 2021 Despite the implausibility, my husband and I really enjoyed the show and can't wait for Part 2. Having been to Paris a couple of times long ago, it was great to be reminded of some of the beautiful locations. I also enjoyed challenging my old brain to understand the French dialogue (I wouldn't have understood anything without the English subtitles, but the subtitles helped me recognize many words and phrases as they were spoken). One thing confused me and I don't think it's been mentioned in these comments: There was a flashback scene in one of the last episodes where he was in a restaurant with his friend (who was about to open the shop that would be both legitimate and a place to fence stolen goods) and saw a dark-haired young woman come in. Assane followed her to the bathroom and they had an encounter that made it clear they had been having an affair for some time, but he was ending it because it wasn't fair to Claire. (I assume this was 2014--about the time Claire got pregnant--since that is when he got the Belgian Congo jewels and Faberge egg.) The woman looked like Pellegrini's daughter. But why would Assane be having an affair with P's daughter (sorry, I am blanking on her name)? Was he using her in some way, or was this a real relationship that began when she kissed him at the pool when he was 14 (when his father was still working for P) or when they met again as adults? It seems highly unlikely he would have a relationship with her after what happened to his father and after he met Claire, unless it was part of a scheme to get revenge. Maybe this is something that will be shown in Part 2. But even if it is explained, it tainted my admiration for Assane because I find it hard to forgive men who cheat. Stealing from rich old ladies and the Louvre, OTOH--no problem (as long as the victims deserve it and you do it with style)! 1 Link to comment
