This was only the second episode of the season and I already feel like SO MANY THINGS have happened—in a good and exciting way, not in a messy and confusing way.
"Guadalajara Dog" provided a bit more focus after a series premiere that only gave us the broadest sense of what Graceland will ultimately be.
We're practically in the homestretch of the series' penultimate season, and while the downtime from mortal peril was initially very nice and mucho appreciated, I'm really, really ready to get back to mortal peril.
This two-part premiere wasn't perfect, but it did attempt to correct some of the flaws of the much-maligned second season, and nitpicks aside, what the episodes did well, they did very well.
"Second Chances" did a good job of pulling on the loose threads from Season 1 without stretching them past their breaking point.
"The Lovers" was a fast-paced and exciting finale that renewed my interest in the show and has me excited for Season 2.
First episodes are hard to judge; I thoroughly enjoyed this one on its own, as it provided an excellent introduction to Graceland: The House and its inhabitants (mostly). However, as an introduction to the series, I'm cautiously optimistic.
