Inn Between is back! And it’s amazing and thrilling! The emphasis of this episode focuses mostly on resolving the fallout of the finale of Season One, and it really hits the ground running. One of the greatest strengths of the show is the character dynamic, and this episode really explores the shifting tides established by that. Of particular note in this episode is Sterling, who is placed into a particularly difficult position by the events of this episode, and Betty, who definitely took the events of the finale the hardest. The resolution of the episode was really heartwarming, and I’m thrilled for where the season will go!
Overall, I don’t think there was anything I disliked about the episode. The setup for this episode took me by surprise, but in a good way! It was a good idea for us to see how events played out directly in this case, but I am looking forward to a return to form in the next episode. The premiere does a really good job of reestablishing the dynamic between the characters for people who’ve been away from the show, but it never feels rote or formulaic. The actors super killed the game as per usual, but I do want to give a shoutout to the dynamic between Marquis Dijon Archuleta and Lindsey Dorcus, which really had me feeling all sorts of emotions. I was extremely blown away by their performances, and it might be a forlorn hope, but I do hope we hear their characters interact again, because they were amazing. Also, I want to praise the sound design, which I think was extremely great and clear here.
This was a great season premiere, and I can’t wait for the rest of the season! I’m super thrilled and excited for it! I have so many questions, and I’m so nervous about the characters! But also excited?! There’s a lot to look forward to with this new season, and I can’t wait to experience it.
