A soft close to the 1980 timeline and an incredible development to the 1990
11 February 2019 | by salle-50308See all my reviews

This episode was perhaps the most thrillingly suspenseful of the entire series thus far. After the climatic shootout of the last episode, this one began slowly tying off the 1980 timeline, yet cracked open brand new interest in the 1990 one. We gain ever increasing detail into the events and characters that have been subtly referenced over the last few episodes. The cinematography continues to mesmerize with angles and lighting that are as crucial to the storytelling as the characters. There was also a scene that seemed almost like a swan song to the ending of the sixth episode in season 1, where Rust was investigating an old worn out abandoned building armed with only his flashlight. The episode finishes with one of the most suspenseful chair gripping moments of the entire series and begs for answers we'll have to wait a painstaking week to receive. A well deserved 10/10
