Alexandra Daddario stars within the collection as Rowan, a neurosurgeon in San Francisco unaware of her connection to the Wayfair clan in New Orleans. Someday, when coping with a condescending superior at her office, she good points the flexibility to burst individuals’s brains. Freaked out by this, she brings it as much as her adoptive mom Ellie (Erica Gimpel)—who’s on her deathbed—and who tells her to suppose nothing of it. When it occurs once more, and after Ellie passes, it begins a grieving self-discovery for Rowan, which takes her to New Orleans, the place she learns about her start mom, Deirdre (Annabeth Gish).
For years, Dierdre has been in a silent, catatonic state, spending her days on the porch of her sister Carlotta’s (Beth Grant) residence and being taken care of largely by household maid Delphine (Deneen Tyler). As we see in flashy flashbacks, Dierdre has been tormented by–after being seduced by–the identical determine who additionally haunted her mom, a person named Lasher (Jack Huston). Showing in these hazy sequences with a sleazy grin primed for a dirty dive bar, Lasher is supposed to be a logo of all that has managed and manipulated the Mayfair girls for hundreds of years.
