I really enjoyed the new episode. It had a shaky start, but kept improving. I am hopeful for the rest of the series if it maintains that improvement curve.
Yeah it's really not wise to look for too much consistency with characters backstory, they've all near enough been completely changed since the first series, best just to go with it.
Still, first episode was ok, cautiously looking forward to tonights episode.
