Starring Iwan Rheon, Robert Sheehan, Lauren Socha, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Antonia Thomas, and Ruth Negga.

Created by Howard Overman.

Currently streaming in the US on Hulu, The Roku Channel, Pluto, and freevee. JustWatch listing.

(As with the first episode of season two, I'm sticking with the "absolute episode number as title" system, which is not great, but better than having posts that say either "Season 2, Episode 2, Season 2, Episode 2" or "Season 2, Episode 2, Episode 2." The series never gave episodes titles, so this seems like the least bad of the various bad choices.)

Big ups to the casting director who snagged the amazing Ruth Negga before she became a full-on star.

Oh, indeed. Kind of fun to contrast her here to her role on Agents of SHIELD.

Another episode that seemed pretty fun until taking a sharp left turn into being unexpectedly heavy. The bit with the superpowers having opposite effects was fun, mostly, although Alisha noted that the end result for her wasn't that different.

That was a mindfuck.

Kelly/ Lauren Socha, as a blonde, resembles increasingly someone I was once close to.
