So the boy killed the adults but the woman wasn't his mother. I wonder who she was and I wonder if the man was his father.
If he wasn't, then what was he doing with them?

OK. .I had to restart and rewatch 4 tines before I got to the hotel room scene.
Glad I did.
Something new to look forward to now on TV.

Tami, is that a good interesting or an "I don't know what I just saw" interesting?
Lol, Pina, I'm still not quite sure which interesting it was. After seeing next week's preview, I hope I have a more definitive feeling.

I did figure out Julian didn't have "tissues" in his hand like the motel manager told the cops, it was Jimpson weed. That unconfused me about that.

Pretty good show so far. I am very curious to learn who "mom and dad" were and what they had planned on doing with the boy.

I don't think the characters are as interesting this season (so far) as they were last season. Ambrose was a hot mess last season right from the get-go. Now he's just a plain old detective with a Type B personality and he's paired with the female cop who is also low key and who doesn't have much of a personality, in my opinion, other than look pained through 2 episodes even in her flashback scene. The head of the police department is also low key.

Remember the pain in the butt female (hated her in a good way) they brought in to oversee the investigation, in Season 1, plus the fun guy that was Ambrose's friend in the office? Tracy Letts' (much more personality in his Season 4 Homeland character) character I'm rooting for and hope he has a bigger part than what we've seen so far. The only ones with a little bit of unusualness in Season 2, which made them interesting, were the couple killed off in the first episode. Maybe they'll be back in flashback. Carrie Coon's character has the exact same personality she had in her The Leftovers character. And the kid, I have no opinion about him, whatsoever. I don't find him to be sympathetic or scary and I'm not interested in him or what happened to him. He's just blah.

Of course, since I'm a Jacob Pitts fan, I miss J.D. as the sleazy drug dealing bad guy from Season 1. But Cora, her sister, the husband, the woman who gave Ambrose the pain, the guy who accidently killed Cora's sister and J.D.'s old girlfriend --- those characters were alive and more important, had different personalities, than each other. And they jumped off the TV screen as soon as they first appeared.

But we've only had 2 episodes, maybe this season just starts off slow as far as character introduction goes.

It IS low key. That is why I am enjoying it immensely. I prefer cerebral shows that you have to use your mind.

I couldn't agree more. The first episode I was intrigued, the second episode bored me. I find the lady cop quite boring, the mother is so far just seeming like an ordinary mother, despite her living arrangements, and the kid is a little dull. The parents were interesting but they are dead.

I'll give in another one of two episodes, though.

I found the characters in the first one much more complex.
