It is definitely very real. Episode 2 is just so outrageously real. Even in Ep 1 you could see the build up and the cracks in the relationship.

Spoiler alert...

The BD in Ep 2 send chills down my spine. I had it happen in almost the same setting. I'm glad I am much far removed from it where it wasn't triggering in a spiraling way, but oh boy, i saw that coming.

No one is coming to save you!
