Hello everyone, welcome to the Mattacritic. This is Matthew Hemenway. In this episode of the Mattacritic, I will be reviewing and analyzing the Watchful Eye which is done by Freeform but can be watched on Hulu. What this show does is that has a young woman named Elena Santos who is working with a NYPD detective named Scott where they are trying to find a ruby hidden in the Grayborne. They are hoping to find this ruby so they can hurt the Graybornes for what they did to them. They both get hurt and they are looking for revenge. This makes sense as both Freeform and Hulu are owned by Disney. I will explain later in this review. I hope this episode will inspire you to read, watch, and learn. I will give you my rating at the end of this review.

Please consider checking out my Facebook page where I have been posting the links to YouTube and Patreon. I also have been posting links to my blog that you want to check out at www.mattacritic.com/blog. The blog will have the written portion of the review as well as the YouTube video being included there as well. Thank you.

As I would have told you in my last video or blog post, I need some help to pay for some bills as my laptop’s hard drive died and had to get a new one. Please consider supporting me in any way you can. You can go to www.mattacritc.com do just that and pay for some merchandise or hit the PayPal donation tab in left corner of the website. You can also help me by becoming a Patron on Patreon Page or signing up for YouTube memberships. All of that will be a great help. Thank you.

I also want to thank Jessica of Detroit, Michigan for helping to support the channel by buying a shirt that helps. It is not the amount or possibly how much I may make, it is the idea that someone believes in what this channel is about and wanting to support it. Please help and be like Jessica in buying any merchandise from my website or signing up for Patreon or YouTube memberships. You will say to me that you believe in this channel, and you want it to thrive and to keep it independent. Thank you. Now on with the review.

The series begins off with there being the death of Alice Greyborne Ward. It was believed that she committed suicide. Eleana Santos tells Scott that it is sad that Jasper lost his mother. Scott tells her, he can always buy a new mommy. It is sad, but unfortunately things like this happen. Elena applies to be Jasper’s nanny while doing just that is looking for this ruby that is supposed to be hidden in the Greyborne. It is believed that this ruby is a jewel. That is what the viewer believes when watching this series.

Elena must deal with some challenges. She is asked by Torrey to do a drug test by peeing in a cup. Elena gets one of the other nannies to help her so that she is not as likely to fail the test. She knew that she smoked a joint that one of the other tenants left her. She felt like she was having visions. She was seeing the old nanny named Joslyn who worked at the Greyborne and was killed later. It was believed that she committed suicide, but appearances can be deceiving.

Elena meets Darcy and Bennett, and they are important to the story of this season as the viewer will learn. Elena will meet Elliot and he will be important to the story as well.

Joslyn was helping Elena understand her story and what took place. Joslyn’s story goes back to the 1940’s when she immigrated from Ireland. You can hear the Irish accent when she talks. She is a beautiful woman who ends of getting involved with Alistar Greyborne. She ends up pregnant with his child. This is not unusual when it comes to the rich and powerful. They will have affairs with other women like this person did with his nanny that takes care of the children.

Elena is asked by Charlotte Greyborn Ivey to be her watchful eye. Yes, this is the title being used in this phrase. Charlotte believes that Matthew Ward killed Alice and that Elena needs to investigate it for her. Charlotte told Elena that she would keep her secret of being a con artist, if she helped her. Charlotte told her it is called a Quid Por Quo. The word is Latin as what Charlotte tells Elena. As the viewer finds out as the season progresses, there is more to Charlotte than meets the eye.

Elena spends time with Matthew Ward and tells Charlotte Greyborne Ivey that this man had nothing to do with murdering his wife of Alice Greyborne Ward. Matthew tells Elena that he wants nothing to do with this family anymore and rather just go back to Indiana. As good as money is, it can change you if you are not careful. Sometimes it is better to be penniless and broke. Yes, you may have to worry about paying bills, but you are happier in the long run. No, money is not bad, but it is how you use it and how you live while having it.

The story has twists and turns. Elena has a mother who went to prison. The viewer finds out that she is a piece of work. She wants Elena to have her get her out of prison. Elena’s mother will use anything that she can just to get out of prison.

As Elena tells one of the nannies is that her father was killed by the Greybornes and they must pay for what they did. That nanny will go to the NYPD detective named Scott who is part of the con with Elena Santos. The nanny wonder what her relationship with the door man is. He is her best friend, and she had known him for most of her life.

The door man named Roman that Elena has working the front desk is supposed to help her with finding what is the significance of the ruby. As the viewer will find out, the ruby is not a jewel, but a person. If you know what that person is, please leave your answer in the comment section below. Thank you.

Elena has her brother in a private school. Elena’s brother’s name is Theo. Theo wonders what he is doing there. Elena tells him, be patient. Theo wants to see his mother, but Elena tells Theo, you cannot trust her. She will hurt you as she is a user and wants to get what she wants. Elena’s mother will undercut anyone just to get what she wants.

I will give you, my rating. I give The Watchful Eye Season 1, a 10 out of 10. It was fun, but it shows the nature of what the rich will do. It also shows how money is made and that coverups and murder happen. It shows how the rich are corrupt and they believe that they are above the law and will do anything to keep their money. It is important to maintain the lie. Joslyn wants to save her child as why her ghost keeps showing up. She wants to save her child’s soul, but that child would rather keep living the lie, and pretend she is someone else even if that is not the case. The story is not simple and the way they ended this season, there will be season 2. What happened at the end of season 1? If you know the answer, please leave your answer in the comment section below. Thank you.
