Episodes To Anticipate
Episode 2 “Scenes From Private Life” seals the deal regarding your investment in Sam and Charlie’s relationship as it becomes clear, as much as Sam is clearly the more interesting of the two, this doesn’t mean Charlie doesn’t bring anything to the relationship.
Episode 5 “Brass Tactics” and Episode 6 “Annus Horribilis” act as a real turning point in the show and is where it finally begins to pick up and get interesting, beyond the lifeline Sam and Amory provide.

Who Is This For?
“City On Fire” is for those with a willingness to stick around as a show goes from being heavily reliant on a few characters and eventually create reasons to get invested in the majority of characters.
What I Hope To See
With Sam ending the season awake, I was hoping we could get to know her beyond the flashbacks. Also, more information on Solomon as he is one of the few, alongside DT, who didn’t really get developed much over the course of the season.
