Triptych Season 1 Review and Plot Summary
Triptych is allegedly based on a genuine story, albeit it’s unclear which one it is. The example of three triplets who were split apart at birth and later reunited, which was famously documented in Three Identical Strangers, seems to be the closest analogue, although this isn’t a documentary. It builds an eight-part drama around the allure of a peculiarly strange idea that contains a compelling grain of reality.
The following is that premise: The Mexico City police’s Rebecca, a forensics specialist, discovers a terrible crime scene. That might sound fairly typical in her line of work, but not when the victim is so frighteningly similar to herself. It isn’t very difficult to predict where this is headed because the show’s original non-English title, Triada, relates to things being in triplicate; nonetheless, a monotonous presentation doesn’t help.
Everything has been seen before. Following the setup, we enter a procedural inquiry where new details are discovered, red herrings are pursued, and things start to get a little strange. Whatever was initially genuine about the plot is somewhat obscured by the tropes of the genre, with Trilogy more closely mimicking Orphan Blackmore than anything else.

Is Triptych Good?
The output is satisfactory. Although there is a minor tendency to lose sight of the main subject in favour of telenovela-style melodramatics, and the real-life basis is handled very cynically, and not really to any lasting impact, the acting is generally respectable and the execution is strong. Who Killed Sara? star Maite Perroni carries the bulk of the narrative weight, and she does so in a competent and versatile starring role.
But it’s really a standout feature. As the story goes on, the aforementioned melodramatics threaten to overpower the plot and surround Perroni with less fascinating people and bad performances. This, like many thrillers, operates on the principle of raising a question and delaying providing the audience with the solution. For the majority of viewers, this should be sufficient to maintain their interest throughout the entire film (episodes run around 45 minutes, mostly, so it isn t the heaviest binge.) Although the finale might not be viewed as very satisfying, and the plot wanders along the way, it is unclear whether they will receive a return on their investment.
