Particularly powerful
21 September 2018 | by opusv5See all my reviews

I just watched season two's final episode last night and found it the strongest episode yet. Franklin's incarceration in the L.A. county jail (reportedly worse than prison) was believably scary, likewise the dangers and beatings he encountered in the detention centre. That he toughens up toward the end to retrieve his shoes and checkmate his enemies conforms with the character: strong when he has to be. The acting was uniformly excellent. The single weakness would be Franklin's release from jail: even if it happened, it couldn't be quickly. A DEA agent retracting their testimony would raise questions and cause delays. I imagine there's a season three in the future. I'll watch it.
