Season 1 relied upon the character interactions instead of the actual crime drama to further the story, which worked perfectly. This season, and I know I'm not supposed to compare, has tried but failed to do that. A lot of people even enjoyed this episode, but I was one of the few to really dislike it. There are just too many story lines going on without much that I actually care about.

Now I will say the episode tried to give us a lot more exposition than the previous episodes had. So there was a little bit more clearance on some things, but not on everything. Vince Vaughn's character has suddenly turned into the Hulk and the episode added in multiple unnecessary uses of slow motion, umm why? Once again, we aren't focused on the villain or crimes at hand, and when they finally do come back and focus on it, It will likely be too late. Then we have Taylor Kitsch's mom's story which is now resolved and taken care of apparently. Not to mention the out of nowhere romance between Valcoro and Bezzerides which is painfully weird.

I really don't want to ramble or hate on the show because I really like all the actors and even some of their performances, this show just doesn't click for me. It's a brutal watch at times.

4.5/10
