The jury, consisting of Ran Tellem, Felicia Elisabeth Jackson and Cecilie Asker, Evin Ahmad states:
"There is no black-and-white in this show. The characters contain both good and evil. The series pilot tells the story, but leaves you with so much that you want to watch the rest. It questions you as a viewer. What should you believe? You both love and hate each character - we believe them all, but they can’t all be telling the truth. It is complicated but gripping - this is why we have television!"
