Help! Help!

[indistinct chatter]

Excuse me. Any chance

you're interested to tour?

We're offering special on

New England architectural

elements featuring..


No, thanks.

Cornices aren't my thing.

Yeah, me neither.


...your first time

on the island?



- I was actually born here.

- That's impossible!

Been in summering in Selkie my

whole life. I'd remember you.

Did you just turn summer

into a verb?

I did.

- I'm TJ.

- Miranda.

You're Amelia's daughter.

- You know Amelia?

- Well, yeah.

I mean,

it's a pretty small island.

'Everyone knows everyone.'

I suppose you do sorta

look alike.

I wouldn't know.

I haven't seen her

since I was preverbal.

My dad kind of died

and Amelia's my next of kin.

- I'm sorry to hear that.

- Yeah, thanks.

Well, brace yourself.

The return of Amelia's

long lost daughter

is gonna be the biggest news

around here since..

...general store was robbed

like ten years ago.

Any chance I'll be no news?

- Probably not.

- Okay.


'So how long are you in town?'

I don't know.

I don't even know

where I'm going to live.

The address

my social worker gave me

just said, "The Mariner."

New Englanders still practice

the fine old tradition

of naming our homes.

I live in Beauport.

You can tell it's fancy

'cause it's French.

Wanna see your new pad?

Wait, like right now?


Come on.

[instrumental music]

I never loved

anyone like this

It's so hard

To be still

Come around again

Lead me on your way

Back home

Straight ahead.

'The big green one's

The Mariner.'

Home sweet home.


'See that house down there?'

'That's Beauport.

Door's always open.'

I know the island looks raw,

but it's actually pretty sweet

once you get used to

living in a digital desert.

Please tell me that doesn't mean

what I think it means.

No cell tower on the island.

Or internet.

Except for

the coffee shop in town.

Worried about that boyfriend

of yours back in..

Portland. Nice try.

In years

You gave me what I want

You gave me what I want

You gave me what I want

You gave me what I want

I got nothin' left

[music continues]


For some reason I thought Maine

would be a little more rustic.

Oh, this is nothin'.

Wait till you see

some of the yachts at the club.

Including yours?


'Hey, TJ!'

- Friend?

- Girlfriend, actually. Kind of.

- Right.

- Hey, hottie with a body.



God, I missed you!

Oh, is this the Miller's new

au pair.

Do you speak English?

Uh, Ginny,

this is Amelia's daughter.


Oh, my God!

I am so embarrassed.

I, I saw those cut-offs

and I just assumed..

- Sorry.

- I'm Miranda.

Ginny Cunningham.

I would invite you to come

to the club with us

but I'm sure you and Amelia

have a ton of catching up to do.

- Yeah.

- Oh, there's Quire.

- She has the party favors.

- 'Oh!'

Bobby's already waiting for us.

Yeah, well, uh,

I'll catch up with ya.

Okay, well, hurry up.

Well, guess I better

get this over with.



Sure you don't want back-up?

I don't mean to brag

but moms love me.

Wish I could say the same.

[instrumental music]



How was the ride over?



Oh, you-you must be starving.

Let's get you home.

[instrumental music]

This place is huge.

What do you do? I..

I tried Googling you

but I didn't find much.

Greg never told you

anything about me?

Didn't ask.

Well, um, I got my degree

in art history.

But, right now, I mostly write.
