S2E1 - Episode 1: Decisions

Night falls on Metropolis West all at once, a darkness that swallows the gigantic city and leaves only the blinking constellations of the skyscrapers' lights. Tonight, the sound of a radio carries new voices to each listener, whoever they might be. Tomorrow, Zero Zero leaves Metropolis West behind. Featuring sparkling personalities, the return of Caine's patter-talk, and long walks through the city.

Trigger warnings: Discussion around family abandonment, yelling, getting chased, violence, loud sounds (23:49).
