I don't know if this show will hang together in the end, but I also like how I never have any idea what's going to happen next. It feels like it could go off in any direction and make it work. I'm still having fun with it.

Me too. Vulture is looking at the details and missing the bigger picture. It's not about what's happening around them, it's about what's happening inside of them. After the past couple of weeks, Run doesn't stretch credulity. What's happening in my life stretches credulity. I like this. I like where it's going. I bought Phoebe's accent. What is unreal to me is my life, not theirs. I can't wait to see where this goes.

Their story line, not mine, BTW. I want to see what happens next in their life. I would prefer to fast forward at least three years in mine.

I had agreed with earlier comments that the show was good enough and didn't need this blackmail caper storyline but after this episode I am sold on it.

The Vulture review hits it on the head for me, in terms of no longer watching for sheer enjoyment but curious to see where they goes. How did Fiona end up out the window, face down and impaled and we didn't hear anything about that struggle or leap?

The leaps from the moving train, Fiona's death, badger woman, and the importance of the phone seem like ideas thought up in a first draft and not fleshed out.

Still not sure why Billy split all of sudden and it doesn't seem important at this point.

Whoops, I must have been half asleep or something, most of my complaints were answered in the episode, sorry!

Still not crazy about the disjointed narrative, but realize it's a conscience choice.
