The Sinner season 1 recap: What happened in the first series?
James Delingpole. A pretty if slightly distraite mother called Cora Tannetti — Jessica Biel — is on a lakeside beach with her bearded beta cuck husband and their little boy, surrounded by other relaxed groups of weekend picnickers. Suddenly, she takes huge exception to a hunky male sitting nearby and derangedly stabs him to death with a fruit knife. Is it over yet? Fine, if you wanted to get in the mood for a shag yourself, possibly.
