    I hope they don’t explain a lot of the weird shit. I’m not sure I want an explanation for the waffle party, etc. and I know that’s not what you were necessarily doing allothersnsused, but I’m off the opinion that a lot of the “weirdness” of the world is better left to our imagination.

    I mean they kind of by definition can’t possibly tie everything off. I think it’s fine to use the waffle party orgy to show that whatever is going on at Lumon is even spookier and weirder than it seems.

    it’s a reenactment of the painting outside of Ms. Casey’s office that Irv & Burt admire which depicts Kier Eagan taming “the Four Tempers” (Woe, Dread, Frolic & Malice), represented by a maiden, crone, jester & goat. The whip sitting on the bed has 9 tails each of which is labeled with one of Kier/Lumon’s core virtues. During the group’s visit to the Perpetuity wing it’s mentioned that Eagan attributed his success to being able to master the 4 emotions via these virtues. Whether or not Dylan was actually supposed to put on the giant Kier head and whip them or actually have sex seems vague.

    I don’t think I’ve seen this mentioned here yet but it’s interesting that the 4 folders on their computer screens in which they drop those numbers are labeled WO, FC, DR & MA which may also represent the 4 tempers somehow.

    If you read the Lexington Letter on Apple Books the appendix is the MDR training manual. It give a lot of insight (well, not a lot, lol) into MDR

    Crushed through this show in a week. So deeply disturbing and darkly funny, often at the same time.

    Can’t wait for season 2

    Also, genuinely heartbreaking seeing Irv’s reaction at Burt with his partner through the window.

    Not sure if it’s been discussed already ITT but in addition to everything else that’s great about the actual show, the opening title sequence for it is one of my faves ever

    Blew through it this weekend. Could not stop watching and at the end found out there was not a conclusion :donotwant:

    Nonetheless looking forward to season 2

    Awesome show. Binged in a week. Unfortunately in my experience shows like this tend to quickly get worse as time goes on and they are forced to build upon the initial world they have constructed. Hoping for the best here but there’s some Lost/Westworld potential.

    I think (and I would imagine this is the consensus) that it got better and better as the season goes on. Enjoy

    100%.
    We watched weekly, until we fell back a week. But even when catching up in relative quick succession, I wanted to enjoy each episode as its own thing. It really was a perfect show for a weekly release and I’m already looking forward to watching season 2

    god, this show was really great. it felt like a season-long black mirror episode where the anxiety and stress and tenseness is ramped up to 100%. everything is so peculiar and it fucks with me and keeps me engaged with the show.

    every new reveal in the successive episodes were mind-shattering. even though i binged the show, i still took time in between each episodes to digest what i saw.

    i did a great job of avoiding spoilers and now get to go through and read reddit and listen to podcasts. but, man, i had no idea this show would extend beyond this season and the show ending on that cliffhanger was brutal.

    I wonder if outside Irv saw some aspect of his innie Irv experience, like innie Irv has with the black paint seeping into his visions. Started him down the path of figuring out wtf was going on down there.
