The slow build-up in the first episodes is finally paying off!
When this season began I was hopeful but skeptical, seeing how slowly it started. However, this was by far the most enjoyable episode of the season, at least to date. The pacing, the mood, the use of music (Lera Lynn's songs create this eerie atmosphere during the bar scenes, which is so fitting for this show), the plot advancement, everything was done right. I also noticed the opening credits featured another verse of the hypnotizing "Nevermind" song performed by Leonard Cohen. His voice and lyrics fit the theme very well.
There was some great dialogue, very similar in tone with the first season's discussions between Rust and Marty. I've seen a lot of complaints about the dialogue being pretentious. Yes, average people might not talk like that in real life, but this is art and I absolutely love philosophical lines, it's where this series truly shines and it was the same in the first season.
Now that we know our characters' motivations and personalities, it's actually very enjoyable to watch the story unfold. Without spoiling the twist for the people who haven't watched the episode yet, I'm very interested in seeing how this power turn will impact the relationship between the two.
Here I am hoping for more of the same quality in the upcoming episodes. If it goes on like this, this season is going to be just as good, if not better than the first season, since people love to draw comparisons between the two, even though they're significantly different in many ways. But, as something Frank Semyon would say, the more things change, the more they stay the same.
