Review

After that revealing layover in Chicago, runaways Ruby and Billy (Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson) are back on a train, heading to Los Angeles. Their plans are, as yet, woolly, and Ruby still has a heartline to her past life, especially when her husband tries to make contact.

But they’re not alone on their fugitive trail, as someone else is on the train who wants the contents of Billy’s shabby backpack. The tone of the show is shifting, as there are chases, confrontations and more revelations, including about the journey itself. “Are those cowboys?” wonders Ruby as she gazes out of the window at the great American landscape rushing past.After that revealing layover in Chicago, runaways Ruby and Billy (Merritt Wever and Domhnall Gleeson) are back on a train, heading to Los Angeles.
