Netflix’s latest thriller comprises a compact seven-episode run, making it easy for many subscribers to devour in just a few evenings or perhaps even a single late night.
“Who is Erin Carter?” delves into the life of Erin, a schoolteacher grappling with a haunting dark past that threatens to annihilate her newfound stability. Evin Ahmad, the Swedish actor, takes on the titular role, supported by a talented ensemble cast that includes Douglas Henshall from “Shetland,” Denise Gough from “Andor,” and Jamie Bamber from “Beyond Paradise.”
Who is Erin Carter?
The tension escalates to its peak in the concluding episode, as Erin, bruised and in a race against the clock, hurries home to stop Lena from exposing a damaging secret to Jordi and Harper. However, upon her return, she is bewildered to find everything seemingly normal, oblivious to the fact that Lena has been abducted by Daniel’s henchmen before she could act.
Fortunately, Jordi manages to tend to Erin’s injuries before they become life-threatening. Erin then instructs him to take Harper to safety. Meanwhile, Lena identifies Daniel as the mastermind behind the botched Harwich heist that led to her downfall. She’s equally shocked to discover Erin’s true identity as an undercover police officer.
Erin herself relies on adrenaline to prepare for the impending showdown. Moments later, Daniel’s ruthless enforcers launch an assault on her home, leading to several intense brawls. A chance encounter with Penelope, an unexpected adversary who suddenly appears less hostile, adds another layer of intrigue. Later, we learn that Penelope has decided to ask her husband for a divorce.

Meanwhile, Lena traces Harper to Olivia’s house but is thwarted in her attempt to reunite with her estranged daughter when Daniel’s men abduct both Harper and her unsuspecting guardian, Jordi. With no other options, Lena turns to Erin for help, and they bond over their shared love for Harper, deciding that teaming up is their best course of action.
Regrettably, the story takes a tragic turn. While they manage to rescue Harper and Jordi, Lena sacrifices her life in the process, going out heroically. Erin has a dramatic confrontation with Daniel, culminating in her shooting him in the head.
In the epilogue, we witness Jordi, Erin, and Harper reconciling and enjoying some beach time. The latter two write letters to their mothers, whom they will never get to know. Just when everything seems perfect, Erin encounters DI Jim Armstrong at a beach bar, who informs her that it’s time to return to her perilous undercover work. “I’ve always found a use for trouble,” he tells her. Could this be a hint at a second season? Stay tuned.
The series concludes by answering the question posed by its title—Erin Carter is “someone who would risk everything for their family.”
