Tonight, Gracepoint settles into its rhythm, doing a deeper dive on the town’s residents and giving us a feel for each of their personalities. The biggest light is shone on the Solanos — who are hanging onto secrets that may or may not have something to do with Danny’s death. We also find out that Carver has a few of his own, and he’s rattled when an empath seems to know at least one of them.

The show is very good at giving us a glimpse of everyone in a very small amount of time. I’m definitely interested in who they all are, and I like that we have little pieces of information that the detectives don’t, so there’s not a fixed POV on the proceedings.

Here’s the official logline for episode two (spoilers ahead!): The Solano family continues to grieve in the wake of their son’s death. The detectives find disturbing evidence in Chloe’s room, while Mark gets caught in a lie of his own. Beth confides in her old friend, Paul Coates (Justified and Breaking Bad‘s Kevin Rankin), now the town minister,
