The Season Two premiere episode of the A&E drama “Longmire” titled “Unquiet Mind” begins with Walt (Robert Taylor) and Vic (Katee Sackhoff) assisting with a transfer of prisoners.
A serial killer among the group leads an escape that results in hostages being taken up a mountain with Walt in hot pursuit.
Walt not only has to track down the escapees, but also has to deal with a snow storm while he’s doing it.
Throw in some hallucinations relating to his past brought on by hypothermia and this gritty Wyoming sheriff has his hands full.
“Unquiet Mind” is an excellent start for the second season of a series that is always well-written and acted, and Taylor’s portrayal of this tough guy with a vulnerable side is continually appealing.
Cassidy Freeman, Lou Diamond Phillips, Bailey Chase and Adam Bartley also star in “Longmire.”
Season Two of “Longmire” debuts at 9 p.m. Monday, May 27, on A&E.
