Just watched S2 E8. It's so beautiful and by far my favorite episode. It's such a tangent from the direction the show seems to be going. A focused vignette on one individual contrasts from the frequent context switching. They stepped up the story telling.
My love for this episode was biased because I too have stood on those same Coral Pink sand dunes in a remote and isolated corner of Utah. Such an epic place almost no one has heard of.
