nice color balance between the green/beige on the wall and jacket and orange on the picture and tie. it nicely draws focus both to the body of the imposing officer and the subject, the boy in the photo.

Just finished it. Not gonna lie, I felt a tad underwhelmed at first....but
I think that’s kind of what the audience is supposed to feel. Because it’s based on true shit and the real ending to the Atlanta murders is unsatisfying. That last shot though...holy creepy fuckin dollface Batman.
Manson and the Son of Sam interviews were pretty eerie but kinda riveting. The Atlanta murders was executed pretty well, very horrid and heart wrenching. I was kinda annoyed how Dr Carr was the only one relegated by a romance arc — Holden and Bill had big personal drama but also worked on cases. She was the standout for me in season 1.
I would have loved to see Wendy dissect Williams. Her insight would have given Ford and Tench a better argument.
I didn't really mind the Brian arc too much
It certainly fleshed out Tench's character more and gave more emotional resonance in the interview with Manson whenever Manson says "your children." His discomfort also came up during the FBI ass kissing scenes too. Also probably highlights how much of an absent father he is. He studies what makes killers all the time but he is potentionally missing it under his own roof.
