TV show description:
From creator Corinne Kingsbury, the In the Dark TV show is a comedy-drama centering on hard-drinking and smoking Murphy Mason (Mattfield). As a blind woman, Murphy has a guide dog, Pretzel, but despite his loyalty, she resents his presence in her life. Murphy and Pretzel live with Jess Damon (Markham), Murphy’s supportive best friend.
Hank (Webster) and Joy Mason (York) are Murphy’s parents. They opened a guide dog school, in part, as a way to provide Murphy the opportunity to perform some meaningful work. Despite their hopes and expectations, Murphy primarily uses it as a crash pad, which doesn’t go over well with the school’s administrator, Felix Bell (Krantz).
After he saved her from a violent mugger, Murphy struck up a friendship with Tyson (Mpumlwana), a smart teenaged boy. Despite his sweet spirit, life has let Tyson down, and he earns his keep by dealing drugs for his cousin, Darnell (John).
One night, while walking in the alley behind their apartment, Murphy and Pretzel comes across what she believes to be Tyson’s dead body. When the police arrive on the scene, the body is not there. Although Dean Riley (Sommer) is a good and caring cop, with Murphy obviously in her cups, it’s hard to take her word for anything.
Broken-hearted, Murphy is at risk of hitting a new low, but her desire to figure out what happened to Tyson keeps her going. Along with Jess and Pretzel, she sets out to uncover the truth. Murphy will do whatever it takes, even if that means cutting back on the booze.
Episode #52 — Please Shine Down on Me
Murphy copes by distracting herself with a new motivation: getting even. Felix attempts to help her find other ways to deal with her emotions, but like anything with Murphy, it’s an uphill battle. Josh is smug as he slowly puts together how the night unfolded until he realized that it’s not over yet.
First aired: September 5, 2022.
