7. Leah Danvers

Played by: Isabella LaBlanc

I hate to sound cruel, but Leah was annoying. However, she was supposed to be. She was a teenager doing teenage things. Leah was rebelling against her mother (Liz Danvers) and trying to figure out who she was inside. Of course, that’s going to seem irksome from the outside, but we’ve all been there and Isabella LaBlanc did a great job.

6. Julia

Played by: Aka Niviâna

Julia’s character wasn’t around long or in the episodes much, but she made an impact. Aka Niviâna played the role of a tortured woman better. Was she mentally not okay or was something or someone otherworldly speaking to her? That’s up to the viewers to decide. Either way, her death leads to her sister (Evangeline Navarro) not giving up on the case. That was important to the story.

5. Peter Prior

Played by: Finn Bennett

You couldn’t help but feel bad for Peter. His father was abusive and his boss (Liz) was controlling. Caught in the middle were his wife (Kayla) and his son. As much as he loved them, Liz and Hank kept pulling him away. It’s difficult to say no to your father when he’s controlled you all your life. And you can’t turn down your boss when you’re a rookie cop. You couldn't fault Kayla for being upset.

Thankfully, he found balance in the end. But he’ll find peace. Killing your father (no matter how awful he is) isn’t something you get over.
