Black Mirror Season 6 Episode 2 Recap: Loch Henry

The focus of the episode is a documentary-making pair named Pia (Myha’la Herrold) and Davis (Samuel Blenkin) who go to a Scottish town to work on a nature documentary. They are drawn to a local real crime story, though, about a farmer lad named Iain Adair who killed many people before shooting Davis’s father, a police officer, and himself.

As Pia and Davis investigate the case further, they come upon a distressing video that links Janet (Monica Dolan), Davis’ mother, to the atrocities. While Davis’s father provides narration, the video depicts Janet torturing a missing couple while wearing a nurse’s uniform and a red mask. When Pia discovers Janet is the culprit, she tries to get away, but Janet follows her. Pia eventually stumbles into a stream, where she probably drowns.

Janet hangs herself afterward, leaving a box of artifacts and a letter for Davis. Once Davis is interviewed in a documentary-style format, it is revealed that the events have been put into a film called “Loch Henry: Truth Will Out.” The documentary reveals Davis’s parents were complicit in the atrocities, with Davis’s father Kenneth shooting the Adair family and then hurting himself to hide his involvement.

In the documentary’s trailer, Davis is seen sobbing as she accepts the BAFTA award for the series. The owner of Historik Productions dedicates the prize to Davis and his late lover Pia during the award ceremony. After, Davis gets a note from his mother, which he reads and opens, making him cry as he admires the BAFTA.

As the episode comes to a close, Davis is sitting by alone in his hotel room sipping champagne and reflecting on the events, while the locals in the town are all donning the same red mask as Janet. Davis’s emotional state is shown in the final shot, which also features the BAFTA award, the note from his mother, and his tears.
