I'm catching the remote notes of "Ex Machina" (wow, was that really 2014???) but much more grounded in nature. It took me a beat to realize that Meela is not an embodied intelligence, really fascinating...

Since Magdalena ran off into the forest, I think it is an apt metaphor. First episode felt like entering the forest, the outskirts, new features, species, things to see. This episode feels like the forest is becoming denser. I'm wondering: if this amazing AI/human interface is the weeds/world-building/exposition, how deep and dense will we be getting??? Definitely curious. Well Henri be coming back? I liked them.
