Creator of The Recruit Alexi Hawley gives a peek at Owen Hendricks’ future. In the Netflix spy thriller The Recruit, Noah Centineo takes on his first major acting role as Owen.
She asks Owen to serve as a type of middleman, but their relationship develops to the point where both of their lives are in danger.
The eight-episode series, which counts Edge of Tomorrow director and executive producer Doug Liman among its credits, emphasizes that Owen is mostly to blame for much of the peril in The Recruit.
Hawley discusses how the show’s prospective second season will deal with the protagonist’s shortcomings without losing what makes it entertaining in an exclusive conversation with ScreenRant.
The main unanswered issue in The Recruit is how Owen will change, along with its dramatic conclusion.
He has been exposed for his inexperience and lack of knowledge right from the start of the series
Owen consistently responds that his father is deceased and that he and his mother have a difficult relationship. Of course, it would be one thing if Owen’s actions had caused no harm to anyone.
Netflix Original, however, repeatedly criticizes the protagonist for his damaging actions from his ex-girlfriend, who still harbors affection for him, and his encouraging pals.
The last episode brought some of it quickly into focus, but most of it just simmers in the background.
