Maybe I should have just started a complete-season-2 thread, since there's probably only still a few of us watching the show, but, I figured the season premiere merited its own thread. Though I don't have much to say besides I'm just happy to stare at Josh Dallas some more.

it was a good start, I'm excited that Agent Vance is still alive. I never bought his death for a second. The Major is a great antagonist too, that reverse psychology on Saanvi was great!

I'm still watching FWIW.

Still watching! While the mystery of this show will probably never truly make sense, I'm enjoying the soap-opera aspect, I like how it veers into religious territory sometimes, and I like the characters. I really like how it focuses on the human impact, not just "How did this weird thing happen?" but "How will our family deal with reality after the Weird Thing?".
I felt like this was a weak episode because it had to re-establish the show's core concepts while still moving the plot forward, but it was watchable. I liked the "lake of fire" mystery and the discovery that a car had already crashed there.
All in all this is my favorite "mystery box" show in a long time and I'm glad it didn't get cancelled yet. I was all excited for "Emergence" to eat this one for breakfast, but it managed to jump the shark in about 6 episodes...

Interesting. I barely tolerate the hamminess of "Manifest," while the acting in "Emergence" keeps me rooted, despite the increasing far-fetchedness.
