I like you, Reaper16. Just know that.

There's plenty of comeuppance, sometimes in small and subtle ways.
I've already started seeing this toward the end of S1. I had a feeling the show was going to be everything you're describing. And I'm so glad.

The show has already changed shape in subtle ways a couple of times. It's ever moving.
