I’m going to warn you now, there might be some spoilers. This story is just all twists and turns, and revelations come fast this season. So there’s not much to be done for it. I will endeavor to not spoil much, though. 

As the season starts, Nic seems to be losing more friends. Jeff Van Sant was never found after the last season. The police are looking for him. But he, and the plane they’d gone to investigate, are gone. 

Fortunately, MK is still around. And she’s getting more involved than ever, both with the case and with Nic. 

This season starts with more Tanis craziness. As though this frighting part of the woods in the Pacific Northwest hadn’t already thrown enough at the characters. Now apparently the forest can create doubles of people. Could this be the answer to the feet washing up without owners on the beach? It’s possible, but it hasn’t yet been verified.

We finally get some answers about Tara Reynolds, sort of. She is in an asylum, and she’s not doing great. When she sees Nic she starts screaming that he’s not there, he should be there, and to come back. This is all starting to sound like multiple dimensions to me.

But then there’s this phrase that keeps getting repeated. Humans are the disease, Tanis is the cure. This is a rather dark view of humanity, though one that seems to be shared for many of the characters involved. 

The first part of the season also contains a meaty selection of stories about Eld Fenn and the things in the woods. One included a buffalo god that would be familiar to anyone who read or watched Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It was fascinating to see this character in another work. 

Of course, a lot of this season so far has centered around the horn. The device that seemed to heal people, while also driving them mad. Apparently, if the horn is ever brought into Tanis, something bad is going to happen. Something that might end the universe.

I can imagine that’s probably going to come up again.

Finally, there’s a pretty big surprise waiting at the end of the sixth episode. It’s something that I’ve suspected for some time. But I don’t want to ruin the surprise for you. It’s pretty good. 

Are you listening along with me to Tanis? What do you think about it so far? Let me know in the comments below.
