    Fuck yeah, all in again.

    Ali is amazing as the old man, how he uses the facial expressions and lowers his voice. Guy is a tremendous actor.

    --yes he is having some sort of memory loss/dementia
    --the season preview trailer/spoiler thing at the end of episode 2 is chalked full of potential spoilers...not sure how we want to proceed with that in this thread...

    --note card referring to the kids mother as being deceased
    --also note of the kids leaving evidence that they planned to run away (packing a runaway pack)
    --one eyed black man is going to factor in somehow at some point

    I was telling Bankz that last night. The show thrives in the rural, dark, small town setting. I’m glad they went back to it. They tried to make it too big and Hollywood for season 2.

    I’m curious how the mental health issues plays a role in the story. Obviously it’s key since it’s been introduced so early.

    Maybe we get two different storylines and endings because of it?

    His daughter being referenced a ton in EP 2. They have given different answers to where she is. Obviously the son is frustrated. Looking forward to seeing how her role factors in.

    As everyone said the southern small town creepy setting is perfect for this type of show. I didn’t hate season 2 but it was such a transformation of what we fell in love with it they made it impossible to really like. Add in the other flaws and well I’m glad they course corrected.

    Restaurant in episode 2 with the fish tank is Herman’s in Fayetteville. Really good steak/rib house and the restaurant with the blue walls is Hugo’s, good burger joint. They definitely did a good job in using good local places.

    What I'm curious about is everything in the past, is that factual or is it just based off of his memory? Bc if it's based off of his memory it could be tainted and they could use that as a device to start deceiving us.

    My expectation for this season's arc:

    1. Crime, which is possibly not a crime, is committed.
    2. Circumstantial evidence.
    3. Evidence fitted to a hypothesis instead of a hypothesis fitted to evidence.
    4. Political careers, personal careers, and egos built on expedient hypothesis.
    5. Unexpected event leading to denouement.
    6. Investigation, coverup, saving face.
    7. Crime, which is possibly not a crime, is revealed to have a very simple and possibly innocuous explanation with no real villains except for those developed after the "crime."
    8. Self-reflection (for the characters and for the viewers).

    My thoughts after smoking a fat bowl: I think the theme of this season has to do with being in a liminal state or being in a state that's in between. In Episode 1, Hayes grabs the book "Forest of Leng" in the little boys room. It's not a real book but it could be based off Lovecraft's fictional character Abdul Alhazred describes Leng as a place where different realities converge, which might explain why its precise location cannot be pinned down.
    2. The trashman vet during interrogation who says that he's in a place where he needs to leave but can't at the same time
    3. Tom Purcell, the dad, who says 'I can't go to sleep. And I can't wake up' in the backseat of the car.
    4. Hayes has dementia so he's stuck between reality and a purple haze.
    5. The Purcell parents -- Inbetween the stage of married/divorced, always fighting, sleepin on couch.
