FROM Season 2 Ep 2 is the 12th chapter of science fiction horror television series created by John Griffin. Its premise involves a nightmarish town in middle America that traps everyone who enters where unwilling residents strive to stay alive and search for a way out, but they are plagued by the terrifying nocturnal creatures from the surrounding forest, and secrets hidden in the town itself.

Entitled “The Kindness of Strangers” FROM Season 2 Ep 2 continues the plot from previous chapter with the main focus being on efforts of the town folk to prevent the newcomers from getting slaughtered by the nocturnal creatures. There are also growing tensions in the collapsed house, Victor’s hideout (with Tabitha) and Boyd’s encounter with the prisoner Martin. But sad to report, they are all empty tensions.
FROM Season 2 Ep 2 is typical of the series, lots of mysteries but no hint of an answer – do the writers themselves even know what the answers are? We seriously doubt it. It’s a torrent of horrific scenarios, without explanations whatsoever. Also, the tensions are mainly created by characters being DUMB. And what’s the deal with those parasites in Martin’s arm that were transmitted to Boyd – was that even real? Who knows?
Twelve chapters into this story and all we have are mystery boxes within larger mystery boxes. Surely, the series has got to give us a clue as to what the hell is happening? At this point in time, the continuous mysteries are all getting tedious and boring. Throwing in that number of newcomers to the town basically resets the series and we go through the whole routine all over again. Been there, done that. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
… still there’s more …
