Carnival Row: what happened in the 1st season of the series?

The series begins when Vignette Stonemoss (Delevingne) manages to escape the soldiers and returns to the ship with the fae she had helped to escape. However, a storm hits, and Vignette is the only survivor. Later, Ezra Spurnrose (Andrew Gower) discovers that it was his ship that sank and sends the fae to be his sister Imogen’s (Tamzin Merchant) handmaiden.

In Burgue, Vignette discovers that Philo (Orlando Bloom), her former lover, has managed to survive and is working as a police investigator. After the characters’ reunion, Philo begins to deal with a breathtaking case, in which there is the discovery of a terrible conspiracy taking place throughout the city. When investigating a murder case, he enlists the help of a mystical butcher.

Meanwhile, at Imogen’s house, Ezra attempts to rape Vignette, but the fae manages to assault him in self-defense. Enraged, Ezra accuses Vignette of theft and takes her to the authorities, but luckily, she is saved by Philo, who manages to take care of her case. From there, Vignette starts to blackmail Philo to free her and joins a group of rebellious fairies who carry out various smuggling.

In a flashback, the audience discovers more about Philo and Vignette’s involvement, as well as understanding how Darius (Ariyon Bakare), Philo’s old friend, was bitten, and also how Mima (Jacqueline Boatswain) was responsible for spreading the rumor that Philo had died.

In the present, Philo manages to uncover more clues to the conspiratorial killer that has been haunting the mystical beings of the city. Someone would have created a reanimated golem from several corpses. To defeat him, Philo needs to find his culprit. To search for new leads, Philo returns to the shelter he lived in as a child.

Due to the lack of progress in the case, the police believe that Philo may be linked to the crimes and are suspicious of his actions, even arguing that he himself created the golem to mislead the authorities.
