Taking to social media, many viewers at home expressed their thoughts on episode two, which investigates the unsolved disappearance of Patrice Endres after she abruptly vanished from the salon she owned in a mysterious "13 minute" window of time. And it seems that viewers are convinced it was her husband, Rob, who was behind the disappearance.

One person tweeted: "Watching #UnsolvedMysteries and I've got a certified case of the heebie jeebies. Question for those who have watched Episode 2: Rob DEFINITELY killed Patrice, right? Like, he acts in a manner completely inconsistent with non-sociopathic murderers?" A second person echoed this thought, writing: "Damn! Rob killed his wife for sure. Degree in Criminology, I mean...#UnsolvedMysteries." While a third tweeted: "Is it just me who thinks rob was weird? #UnsolvedMysteries."

Other viewers at home made interesting comparisons of Rob to another well-known Netflix figure, Carole Baskin from Tiger King. One person expressed: "So Rob Endres is the new Carole Baskin. These @netflix reality villains are really bold and creepy. Wow. I hope the show brings new light and justice for #PatriceEndres and her son. #Netflix #UnsolvedMysteries."

The new spin on the classic mystery series focuses on a number of cases that have been left open over the years. The official synopsis reads: "Fusing signature elements from the original series with contemporary immersive, character-driven storytelling, the 12 new episodes are rooted in the experiences of ordinary people who have lived the unthinkable - from the trauma of a loved one’s unexplained disappearance or horrific death, to the shock of a bizarre paranormal encounter. Alongside detectives and journalists, family members offer clues, present theories, and identify suspects, hoping one viewer holds the key to solving the mystery."
