At 48:09, when the chief visits his father in residential care, there is a shot of a woman playing chess. The pieces are misplaced, most glaringly one of the white pawns is on the first rank - whereas they start on the second rank and cannot move backwards - making it an impossible chess position.

Interesting And Well-Acted
21 November 2015 | by nomis94See all my reviews

This episode is an improvement to the season opener and I don't really understand why the rating of episode 2 is that low. Anyways, the acting is once again superb and the whole story about this ominous, white-colored, puffing sect really hooked me. Laurie is an interesting character and there is more to come concerning her backstory.

Patty is an authentic leader and the actress is great. Also Laurie delivers a great performance.

The pace is rather slow and that might be the reason for a stable 7.6 rating. To be honest, we don't have an action-packed TV series here. It's all about loss and how different people deal with it. I like that.

The music (here we go again) is amazing! Episode 2 is a very good episode, though the pace might be not everyone's taste. Keep it up, guys! You won't be disappointed.
