Hulu’s Light as a Feather season 2 is a merry-go-round where no-one is having fun because it’s repeated the cycle too many times. Episode 5, “Silent as the Night” shows the group of characters coming together to help McKenna (Liana Liberato) figure out what she does when she sleepwalks. Another problem arises when Nadia and McKenna get into an altercation at the start of the episode, but luckily McKenna has a tracking device/camera attached to her, so there should be answers.
Well no, because McKenna wakes up and the camera is not on her, and then they find Nadia dead. The death toll is rising. McKenna is now worried about Trey’s partner Sammi, as she got involved in the game on the night McKenna described everyone’s fate. Unfortunately, episode 5, “Silent as the Night” is starting to make the series feel stale. The writers are struggling with Violet’s (Haley Ramm) development, planting moments where Alex (Brianne Tju) is starting to warm to her in moments that do not make sense; you cannot accuse Violet of being manipulative in one scene and then trust her ideas in the next.
With Sammi freaked out by McKenna’s caution, nothing is getting resolved. McKenna keeps showing people the chrysalis on her back as a cry for help, but in episode 5, all it did is make Trey believe that he made a mistake in leaving her. But on a positive note, at least Alex has started cracking on with her flame.
I believe we are witnessing a forced second season, and Light as a Feather season 2, episode 5, “Silent as the Night” did nothing to argue against my point. It’s a mess. And the plot point where Alex and Violet delete the camera footage, so McKenna did not think she murdered Nadia is ludicrous. Surely you’d be scared that your friend is potentially brutally killing people.
