I think he did it to force his hand. Dude just didn't want to live any longer.

I would be very dubious of this given the setting

in general though, if a group of rednecks beat me up and told me to stop talking to kids, i would probably stop.

it's illegal af to lethally booby trap your property (aside from the fact he had actual landmines), and also illegal to defend the curtilage like he was doing. all of this with the premise of messing with people's kids and also him not calling the cops or anything. it would go down as first-degree murder for sure.

AND he clearly killed Will Purcell being that they found the red back pack under his stairs.

I just finished episode 3 and I'm about to give up. This shit is too fucking slow. Good story, but it drags and drags.

Is it worth sticking with it?

I'm mainlining GOT right now... through S6 for the third time.

Going from that to slow ass dialog is like watching paint dry.

I feel like the acting this season has been absolutely superb but the story just doesn’t quite have that it factor to it that captured me like season one. I know that’s a pretty tough comparison but I don’t really see myself watching this season again when I’ve binged season one an embarrassing number of times.

^I think part of that is because the plot is very similar to season 1. If this had switched places with season 1, then I feel like we'd all like this one just as much.

Sidenote, I was pleased to see them reference season 1 in general in the last episode. They can rightfully forget that season 2 exists though.

Not moving fast enough, they're going to have to slam pack the last episode full of stuff. 1.5 hour show but still...

ehhh

^^ One thing that really set S1 apart to me was the creepy factor that was involved from the very start. I thought we were going to get some of that this time when the dolls and the boy were found but that never really materialized past that point. S1 has it all over the place with the Dora Lane death to the wooden things found to the mural on the abandoned church to the whole Reggie Ledoux aspect and so on all the way to the video Rust found and what turned out to be Carcosa.
