*** This review may contain spoilers ***

The second episode keeps me interested. We still didn't find out much about their situation. But we do get some more mystery in it when they leave with the car and yet end up back in the ghost town after seeing the ball of bright light

We also don't know much about characters yet which is a bit of a problem because it doesn't make us care enough for them. But we can see that we are on the way to find out more about them as little details are being revealed

The fact that "they" left a cocoon in Tori's room and a gun with "kill Joe and you will be free" message in Janet's room makes me wonder if they are being kept there for some sort of Saw/Big Brother like entertainment. But I may be totally wrong

The release of the butterfly and how it ended made me chuckle (although I am sorry for the butterfly) and I feel it is a symbol for them that they cannot get free

The ending was very dramatic. I just feel they shouldn't have showed it to us. If they would have stopped while Janet was aiming at Joe or when everyone heard the shots it would have made us anticipate the next episode more. Maybe they decided not to go this way because it is a very common way to end an episode
