Summary: Clyde Barrow (Emile Hirsch) and Bonnie Parker (Holliday Grainger) meet and begin their life together.

List of the cast:

The first part of the show, we see as Clyde and Bonnie meet and start to become the more infamous bank robbers that ever lived. Anytime a couple goes on any kind of crime spree it gets referred to: Bonnie and Clyde. That’s how famous it is.

This story has been told many times over the years and it’s one of those beloved stories for people who like a good romance story or a story of excitement. We’ve all heard it but of course it changes a little with each telling.

With this, we get a more in depth look at the two main characters. We see that Bonnie definitely had something wrong with her and she was more or less the master mind of the whole thing.

This part was a bit slower, but no doubt that the next episode tomorrow will have a lot more action as their rise comes down.
