Ack, I didn’t realise episode 2 was already out so I’m a little late.
This episode unfortunately starts off a little slow. We start off with Chloe and Rachel in the principal’s office getting the smack down for skipping school. Luckily their involvement in the fire is still a secret, but Chloe does end up getting suspended. Then there is yet another argument between Chloe, her mother and David which gets tedious.
Things got dull in the section in the junkyard where Chloe fixes up a truck. Although that’s probably due to my own personal hatred towards anything related to car maintenance.
There’s another dream sequence with Chloe’s dad which was very creepy and effective. The episode starts to pick up more after this. Things get really interesting when we see the lady who Rachel’s father was seen to be fooling around with step out of Frank’s RV. We then go on a snooping tirade through Frank, Drew and Eliot’s things which is a Life is Strange staple and always fun.
Things get intense when demon drug dealer Damon beats up Drew who owes him money. The mood gets lighter when Chloe is dragged into performing in the Tempest play by Rachel. It’s spectacularly awkward yet hilarious and I liked there was a challenge to actually memorise the script. Rachel and Chloe getting even closer though I fear Chloe is about to get her heart broken because Rachel’s intentions are still really unclear.
The best part was by far when while trying to make a getaway with Rachel, Chloe finds herself sitting down to dinner with Rachel and her parents. We get a hands on look at Rachel’s home life which is beginning to crack and this is taking its toll on Rachel. Finally, after a confrontation with her father where the backtalk gimmick found it’s groove, an insane revelation was made. The lady who James Amber was cheating with is actually Rachel’s mother. Makes sense, they look a lot alike.
After that bombshell, I am absolutely psyched for the next episode. What exactly is going on with Rachel and her family? Is Damon going to come after us? Will Chloe finally dye her hair because it looks too similar to Max’s right now and this gets confusing?
