When she finally meets charming and handsome doctor John Meehan Bana , Debra is quickly swept off her feet — much to the dismay of her daughters, Terra Julia Garner and Veronica Juno Temple.

With that out of the way, those who know the ending of Dirty John, know that John Meehan, the star villain of the series, dies at the end. We're trying to sweep the audience off their feet the way John swept Debra off her feet. After meeting Meehan, who told Newell he was an anesthesiologist who'd worked in Iraq with Doctors Without Borders, they begin dating. Still Debra is thinking about what John did to her, what he did to all of them. She fell into a whirlwind romance with him and they even got married, but all the while, her kids were suspicious of Meehan, noticing that parts of his story didn't add up.

Her daughter, Terra, is a blogger and still has her dog Cash, who helped save her life when she was attacked by John Meehan. So glad to see everyone has grown a brain!!! Terra deals with it by trying to go back to being her sweet self but knowing that she has what it takes to kill a man if necessary. But that is going to be a completely different story. In most of these recaps I never addressed the similarities and differences between the show and because I think they should stand on their own as two separate pieces of work.
