Holy cow!

What an episode.

Bruce Campbell shows up as Ronald Reagan.  Bonus!

The body count is really picking up.

There were about half a dozen memorable and/or hilarious lines in the episode.

The tension in almost every single life in the show is ratcheting up, but for slightly different reasons in each case.

Beautiful pacing, writing, acting, plot, music.  Terrific show so far.  People who join late will have the pleasure of binge watching.  Lucky them.

Bruce Campbell nailed that bit as Reagan. Caught the essence.

I think that this season so far has been considerably better than the first season, even though the first season was outstanding.

I love these characters and the way each of them is in a slightly different orbit around a cluster of really bad stuff.

Ted Danson is terrific.  I never liked him at all before this role, but he's been great so far.

The black dude is the best philosopher/humorist hitman since Samuel L. Jackson in Pulp Fiction.

I was a bit disappointed when I first saw him on the screen but yeah, he's holding his own in this show. Maybe it's a testament to the good writing.

Oh yeah, forgot about that! It's crazy when you stop to consider that this all happened, more or less.

I hate to burst your bubble, Jack, but it is most assuredly *not* based on a true story. That part is just a joke.
They got away with it when the movie came out because no one had the internet to readily look it up. Nowadays, in the tv series, they still say the same thing, but it's just tongue-in-cheek.
