Wait....I forgot. It's a woman we're talking about here. Since when did their emotions run evenly for more than 15 minutes straight?
Retracted. FX hit the nail on the head.
I think they did a decent enough job of making the event of smoking off of that dude that raped her a kind of turning point, at least a point of reflection. And the smoking off of that dude that raped her provided some closure on getting raped and all the trauma associated.
I can empathize with her position. The draw between country and children is tough. Being married for 20 years to someone you know nothing about and your commie bastard government told you to marry is tough. The whole identity crisis is very interesting to me. Bottom line, I'm OK with Keri Russell's character.
On the whole, I'm really impressed with it so far. There is a little bit of nostalgia going on, and the workings WITHOUT technology is interesting. The characters are interesting. I'm all in.
