You can try to escape the story of your life. But you can’t. It happened.
This is the best episode yet. It finds Laura Dern’s Amy attempting to reconnect with her troubled ex-husband, Levi, brilliantly played by Luke Wilson via a river trip. This is another good opportunity for me to mention just how unbelievably beautiful this show is visually; the section of this episode that takes place during the canoe trip is nothing short of gorgeous. This is a really compelling episode, driven by the strong work by Dern and Wilson. Wilson, in particular, has a really wonderful scene at the end of the episode where you can really see just how troubled this guy really is. This is a really great episode and it really makes the Levi character, who has been on the fringes thus far, come to life. 4 stars.
tl;dr – Laura Dern & Luke Wilson anchor the strongest episode of the series yet as a divorced couple struggling to reconnect. 4 stars.
