The second episode of Bright Falls is called “Time Flies”. If you haven’t already seen it, make sure you watch Episode 1: Oh Deer first. Anyways, here’s episode two:
This episode delivers on everything Oh Deer did, but in a fundamentally larger way. We’re getting a lot of elements of the mystery, but each clue seems to only burden us with the overwhelming weirdness of the world…and I mean that in the best way possible. You would think these new details might lend a sense of stability or normal-ness, but it turns out Bright Fall is a lot more demented than anyone could have seen coming.
The last episode left an eerie, tense feeling about the community and this episode brought that front and center. I won’t go into the specifics (it’s five minutes long, watch it already!) but I think it’s safe to say the levels or real terror and panicked insanity are officially off the charts.
These episodes really deserve some in-depth discussion. There’s a lot of clues to puzzle over and various things that need dissecting. It’s probably still a little early for for an overall theory, but just between these two episodes you can already see things coming together. Upon re-watching, even some of the sequences that don’t seem to make sense actually have a few great reference points in the very same episode.
