The riots that broke out in the season 1 finale were everything the show had been building up to, and so it is that Mayor of Kingstown season 2 begins with Kingstown in deep decay, reduced to something resembling a grim, open-air penitentiary where everybody's doomed to pay a heavy price for the power-brokers' failures.
Those wasted opportunities to break the cycle of corruption, revenge and retribution, and actually change things for the better, look like a long-gone fantasy when the bodies are piling up this high. Amid the chaos, Mike still retains some sway with each of the warring factions, but his influence is no longer absolute, and all the while the specter of Milo Sunter (Aidan Gillen) is beginning to grow sharper.
Created by Taylor Sheridan (Yellowstone, 1883, 1923, Tulsa King) and Hugh Dillon, it's based on Dillon's experiences growing up in the shadow of Kingston Penitentiary in Ontario, and it's one of the most brutal shows on TV, which is saying something.
