*Season 1 Spoilers Ahead*
Throughout the show, Applegate's character Jen and Cardellini's character Judy go through difficult times as their friendship is tested because of one impulsive act and the consequences of it just keep escalating. The core relationship between Jen and Judy faces a lot of contortions in season one, especially because Judy was driving a car that was responsible for the hit-and-run death of Jen's husband. Any die-hard fan will tell you that the year-long wait seemed longer than usual and fans cannot contain their excitement about finding answers to the questions they have had.
The main shocking reveal during the finale of season 1 was that Jen finding out her close friend Judy was actually responsible for her husband's death. After the shocking reveal, she distanced herself from Judy and tried for a restraining order. She even told Detective Perez about Judy's confession but sadly, the officer couldn't do anything about it. In the end, it looked like Jen was ready to burn Judy down and even told her that she could die.
Judy was even prepared to kill herself in the same spot Ted died. And then, boom! Steve confessed to Jen that he was in the car. We won't get into too many details but a lot of Judy's actions seem like it will have a ripple effect in the second season, even after Steve's death.
Netflix has tried launching a number of shows with a similar idea but most of them were difficult to pull off. What makes Dead to Me stand apart from other shows is that even though it started with a fairly simple premise, it went to prove the fact that if the execution is brilliant, there is no need to judge the show by its pilot episode. Maybe what contributes the most to the show's success is that despite extremely unfavorable situations, the friendship between the women has grown richer.
The official synopsis of Dead to Me reads, "A hotheaded widow searching for the hit-and-run driver who mowed down her husband befriends an eccentric optimist who isn't quite what she seems."
