Read the season 1 review of Surface.

In the penultimate episode, Sophie accepts her past, but still tries to doggedly cover-up her criminal misdeeds. James and Baden fight to prove their worth, although Sophie doesn’t know who to trust. Here’s what happened in episode seven of Surface:

  • Hannah and Sophie apologize to one another with their first therapy session in a long time. Sophie accepts her suicide attempt and yearns to move forwards.
  • Sophie asks Baden to hold off on delivering the transaction evidence. He gives her 24 hours to tie up loose ends. She lays out everything to James and tries to withdraw the money from the bank. Her suspicious behavior is noted though and she bails.
  • James is investigated again after Todd’s tip-off. Harrison and James threaten the assistant on a rooftop. He explains everything, saying he was framed by an undercover cop.
  • Caroline and Sophie meet for drinks. Sophie feels helpless in her current predicament and wants to make things right again.
  • Sophie wants to confess and visits Baden in secret to tell him everything. Baden thinks James is lying about Sophie’s history. Baden wants to run away with her. Sophie asks him to destroy the evidence, but he won’t.
  • James informs Sophie about Harrison’s arrangement with Baden. He hired Baden to look into Sophie, but fell in love with her instead. James says you can’t trust Baden.
  • Baden packs up his life ready to escape. Sophie questions him about Harrison’s allegations. Baden admits he was following her. She blackmails him into destroying the evidence.
  • The married couple go on a date, but Baden pops in to ruin the mood. He passes Sophie a memory stick, then gets into a fight with James.
  • Sophie finds Baden dead in his apartment, after his cover was blown.
  • The memory stick contains footage of Sophie jumping. She tells James the truth. He still thinks Baden is involved somehow, he won’t accept that she tried to kill herself. James hugs Sophie saying it wasn’t their fault.

Surface season 1, episode 8 release date/time

The next episode is scheduled to premiere on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 2nd, 2022 at 12 am PT.

Where to watch online

Viewers worldwide can catch Surface season 1, episode 8 on Apple TV+ at the date mentioned above.


  • Next week is the final episode, so you would expect some big revelations and shocking twists to come. I honestly don’t know what else there is to explore though. We now know that Sophie conned James out of his money and then tried to kill herself after an argument with her husband. Baden is dead and all the loose ends seem tied up.
  • I imagine there will be another twist to come, maybe James lied about Sophie’s past or Sophie was more innocent in the scam than we were to believe?
  • Hopefully the show provides a satisfying ending to make up for the slow middle section.

You can watch this series with a subscription to Apple TV+.
