Fans of Lore will have seen that there was a connection to the very first episode of the series in Season 2, Episode 1. Whether it was intentional or not, it was a good nod to the beginning.

Taking over a series in the second season can’t be easy, but boy has Sean Crouch done an excellent job. Moving away from the podcast-style narration, Lore Season 2 is telling the tale purely through the characters. There’s still a narration but nothing like the first season.

While the connection is still to the podcast, the opening of Lore Season 2, Episode 1 connected to the opening of the whole series. I’m still not sure if this was an intentional Easter egg, but it was something I immediately appreciated.

The episode opened with a night watchman in a cemetery waiting for any signs of life. And that’s just what he got. A bell started ringing and the night watchman started panicking that someone had been buried alive.

It was a serious concern at the time, which is something Season 1, Episode 1 touched on immediately. The opening clip of the niece and aunt told us how some people would be buried alive because of the lack of medical knowledge. There were various ways people would ensure their loved ones could reach out if they were buried alive and one of those was through the bell.

In an episode that touched on grave robbery, it made sense to include a ringing bell in Season 2, Episode 1. It was also an easy but warm nod to the episode that kickstarted this whole series.

So far, I’m just two episodes into Lore Season 2 and loving it immensely. The show has found its footing (which is common for second seasons) and I can’t wait to see more of this season and hope it continues beyond this. After all, there are so many stories to tell.
