Tawney Opens Up About Her Birth Parents in a Moving Rectify Scene

By

No TV drama does a slow burn better than SundanceTV's Rectify, which has traversed only a few months in the time of the show over the course of four seasons. So, compared to the rest of the show, something explosive happens in this quiet scene from tomorrow night's episode between Tawney (Adelaide Clemens) and Zeke, the dying patient she has bonded with at a nursing home. Though we know that she was a foster child, Tawney has never been open about her birth parents. Here, praying over a man she only knew in passing, she faces her own history.
