What happened to Leni on Netflix echoes?
As the series begins, we meet Gina McCleary, a successful author living in Los Angeles with her husband, Charlie Davenport (played by Daniel Sunjata). She is forced to travel to her hometown of Mount Echo when her identical twin sister Leni’s husband calls her to tell her that Leni is missing.
Leni and her husband Jack Beck (Matt Bomer) lead a very different life from Gina and Charlie, they run a farm and raise their daughter Mattie. When Gina arrives at Mount Echo, she reunites with father Victor (Michael O’Neill) and older sister Claudia (Ali Stroker) and it quickly becomes apparent that Gina is considered the “naughty” twin who left his home long ago time left and stayed away.
We later find out that Claudia was accidentally pushed by Gina when they were kids, resulting in her needing a wheelchair.
Gina begins to ponder when she finds an old doll with its head removed at her father’s house, and later goes to an ancient cave where she and Leni used to hide. There she finds one of Leni’s outfits ready for her, with the missing doll’s head on it. There is also a copy of one of her books that has “You get both lives” and “Choose” scribbled on it.
It turns out that Leni isn’t actually missing, but has run away and Gina has to pick up the broken pieces. Gina then puts on Leni’s outfit, injures herself with a rock, and makes her way home, pretending to be a cold and confused Leni. She makes up a story that she was kidnapped by a group of men trying to steal a foal from the farm.
what happens in echoes After Gina realizes that Leni ran away?
After discovering that Leni is alive and well, Gina is forced to play both sisters, switching between the two as she works her way around town trying to figure out what Leni is up to.
Things get particularly confusing when it turns out that the Gina viewers who met at the beginning of the series were actually Leni the whole time. It turns out that the sisters switched lives every year on their birthday. Leni would spend a year as herself in Mount Echo and Gina would live in LA for a year, then they would swap until their next birthday.
We later find out that this arrangement was set up after Mattie’s birth so that Gina could secretly live in Mount Echo with Jack and Mattie as Leni for a year while Leni, who was suffering from postnatal depression and almost caused Mattie to drown, could let herself in recover LA
Back in the present, why would Gina (who lives as Leni) run away? Well, we find out that while Leni was pregnant with Mattie, Gina was pregnant too, but sadly she lost the baby. Years later, while living as an author Gina, Leni suggested a book about her miscarriage. When Gina finds out that Leni is trying to monetize her tragedy, she is furious and tries to distance herself from her sister – which doesn’t go down well with Leni.
Gina also discovered that her husband, Charlie, a therapist, actually knew that she and Leni had swapped places all along. Feeling betrayed, Gina tries to keep her closer than ever. Gina spends the next year in Mount Echo as Leni and begins an affair with her old high school boyfriend, Dylan. She tells Dylan that she really is Gina and the two plan to run away together. Therefore “Leni” disappeared.
We don’t want to spoil all the storylines but let’s just say there’s a lot more drama to follow and fans are never really sure which sister to cheer for in the episodes. There are also several disturbing flashbacks throughout the season, including a church on fire and someone who appears to be drowning in a bathtub, suggesting there’s more to the story than we think.
While viewers are unsure which side of the sister they are on, local police are suspicious of the twins and alike Schott’s Creek Star Karen Robinson really shines as Sheriff Floss, who doesn’t buy the sisters’ stories as the drama unfolds.
All seven episodes of Echoes are now available to stream on Netflix.
