Julie Han, The Returned
Julie Han (Sandrine Holt)
Supernatural drama series The Returned, an American adaptation of the 2012 French series Les Revenants, followed the residents of a small town whose lives were disrupted when dead people began to reappear. Julie Han was a doctor who found one of the returned, a young boy named Victor, and brought him home with her.
Through flashbacks it was revealed that Julie and police officer Nikki used to be a couple seven years before, until Julie was attacked and stabbed several times. The attack left Julie traumatized and the relationship fell apart. In present day, due to different circumstances concerning the returned, they kept running into each other and started to grow closer again.
After Nikki showed up worried at Julie’s apartment one night, the two admitted they missed each other, shared a kiss, and almost had sex, before they were interrupted by Victor. Victor had the power to cause other people to see visions, and Nikki tried to convince Julie he was dangerous but she didn’t want to listen.
Victor, not appreciating Nikki’s attempts to turn Julie against him, had her pushed down the stairs, where Julie found them and Nikki was rushed to the hospital. Julie finally realized that Victor was dangerous and told him he couldn’t just hurt people, especially not people that she loved. She then told him she loved him, but they had to let each other go, so Victor did and disappeared. Julie then went back to the hospital where Nikki was being discharged, told her it was all over and they shared a kiss.
