I wondered specifically about the trace evidence that would’ve been left behind in the container. Since Legarski was alone and it seemed like a dead end, would that have been a situation where they needed a warrant to properly check the container? Or am I giving the show too much credit?

Simply based on the way the show has been promoted, I don’t think Jenny was part of the P.I. team. (The show was always described as basically “P.I.s Cody Hoyt and Cassie Dewell... and Cody’s ex-cop, ex-wife Jenny.”) I think she’s just an ex-cop, not an ex-fed though.

Solely based on my research, it seems strangely beholden to the source material at parts, but I think the biggest differences (and if anyone here has read The Highway or the entire series of books, please let me know) are the casting and characterization of Cassie, the affair/love triangle, and Helen being Ronald’s Read more

Apparently, the show was supposed to film in New Mexico and Nevada (so, still not Montana) but moved to Canada because of the pandemic.

I’ve seen the second episode, and I’m excited to talk about the aftermath of JCL’s unhinged decision-making at the end. Read more

He’s worn that ring the entire series. Since this was supposed to be the final season, “It Never Ends Well For The Chicken” was a “okay, we’ll finally address this too” origin story that also tied into the greater mythology.
