Good start,, picked it up in a nice, easy way.. More Craziness to come ;)
3 March 2015 | by Aktham_TashtushSee all my reviews

The writers picked up the story in a nice way,, understandable,, and good precise timetable.. the events starts a year after they catch Joe with some flashbacks ..

Sam Underwood (Mark) is co-leading now,, after his genius psychotic characters last season, well, he deserve this.

Joe Carroll is on the death row but Thank god he's still alive,, i believe he'll play along with Ryan Hardy in this new game ... more craziness and excitement for me ;)..

A new method of killing and bodies mayhem appears ... which is really good they didn't make any repetitive ideas..

Let's hope it'll be a good season this one.
