  • Great start to season two

    9.0
    Longmire is a welcome return. This modern western feels fresh and yet as comfortable as a worn out shoe. That's largely because of this great cast, lead by Robert Taylor and the engaging plot lines. This episode got us deep in to Walt's psyche - and will be easier to follow if you watched the first season. I hope the rest of the season holds up to this great start.
  • Good start for the 2nd season

    8.0
    Everything about this episode was great except for all the hallusinations - hard too follow and too many of them, and the way Vic was obsessing about Walt. I'm still praying for no love story for those two.

    Destination TV of a different kind. It's good to have Longmire back - the Southland of Wyoming. This episode gave us all the great landscape shots but the story felt a bit off with all the hallucinations. It was special to follow the manhunt with short scenes from every party: kate, branch and henry and of course the sheriff. Looks like next week, we're going back to a local story and I am really looking forward to it.moreless
  • Not as smooth as last year yet.

    Well, I am reminded of the hallucination scenes Craig Johnson wrote in one of his novels when Walt was up in the cold and stormy weather.... I think that must have been the inspiration for this episode. I also think that I would have loved for the episode to have been one of the two hours ones. It needed more time to get through all the pieces of the case. Nothing had enough time! The pacing was a quite choppy. It was good to see everyone back. I have high hopes for the season.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • Discrepancy: Ferg makes reference to Vic leaving Walt at 11,000 feet. The tree line, or point at which trees aren't capable of growing, in Wyoming is around 10,000 feet so the scene shouldn't have had any trees in it. The mountain scenes were filmed in the New Mexico Red River Valley at about 11,000 feet. This area's tree line is around 13,000 feet thus the tree filled scenes.

  • NOTES (4)

    • The episode mountain scenes were shot in the New Mexico Red River Valley at around 11,000 feet.

    • In order to make Walt's signature coat look like it had gotten wet, then frozen almost solid on his hike up the mountain, and using only one of the six sheepskin coats the production owned, Costume Designer Daniela Moore took a scrap of sheepskin, soaked it in water and left it in the freezer. After it was frozen, Ager/Dryer Wynema Chavez used the sample and recreated it by painting a glossy gel on the coat and then heated it up to create an icy effect. It was then airbrushed with a dulling spray in areas and sanded to blend the edges. Set Costumer John Deering added fake snow and frost to even out the look.

    • Robert Taylor and the stuntman were wearing a Lavacore suit (high tech wetsuit with maximum flexibility to protect from cold, wet and wind) underneath their clothes when they went into the freezing cold mountain stream.

    • For the "icy" look on Walt's face, Special Makeup Effects Artist and Designer Steve LaPorte and Department Head Makeup Artist Blair Leonard used water expanding powder to simulate frost and ice. It was applied with a sticky gel to the facial hair and skin. Redness was added to give a flush look. Purple and red discoloration was added on Walt's hand for an early stage of frostbite.
