The Returned Recap
35 years ago a young, living Lucy wakes up a shirtless young man and kisses him. He tells her he loves her and she asks him what his name is. “Morgane,” he reminds her. The pair leaves the tiny hillside cottage where they apparently spent the previous night and heads toward town as intense lightning stitches the sky. Increasingly intense lightning stitches the sky as they cross the flooded reservoir. The young lovers run ahead as a huge chunk of the dam crumbles, flooding the lower part of the town. The townspeople on the hillside, including Madame Costa and Vincent’s family, stare at the carnage. Milan picks Lucy out of the crowd and tells her to come with him.
35 years ago, a young Pierre meets with a group of gangsters, led by the imposing Milan, in the middle of the night. Pierre is reluctant to carry out a planned robbery, but he and his partner-in-crime draw guns and break into a suburban home.
