  • I liked it I was looking forward to the show to return, but figured it wouldn’t return. Scandal is way better there is no comparison. Maybe another network will pick it up.

  • I thought it was a good show. It had a lot of potential to be a breath-taking show. Yes, the acting was the greatest, but a lot of mysteries don’t have te best acting all the time too. Maybe it’s just me but I thought it deserved another chance.

  • Loved the show, loved Jolian.( Julian and Joanna) The plot thickened and had a lot of potential, I wanted to see Robert revealed without a doubt as the killer, and how Julian handles that info, wanted to witness Robert learning about Wyatt, how about Julian in the scene where he learns who Joanna’s ex is etc awwww, I want it back. Revenge and now Betrayal certainly doesnt do it for me at all.

I still miss the show, it had so much potential and right now I need a refuge from the rollarcoater that is scandal which is the only other show I got into.

  • Loved this show & sad to now know its not coming back. Just found out today it won’t be back. Deception and Under the dome were our favorite shows last year. Deception was the guilty pleasure show my daughter and i couldn’t wait to watch every week , because we don’t like revenge or scandal. It is or was the only NBC show we watched because nothing else appeals to us in their line up, thank goodness for CBS,CW, and FOX otherwise we wouldn’t have anything to watch. These networks at least give a new show a chance to develop and find its core audience , or allow audience to discover the show . It took us 3-4 episodes before we knew what days it aired because we don’t watch NBC shows generally , but when we did we were hooked. And yes we are in the age demographic they wanted to attract but have lost again. Please BET, TBS, heck even lifetime pick the show up we really miss it!
