I binged the first five episodes and I think that helped. My biggest problem right now is that Chester isn't that interesting.
This was the best episode for him - using the camera to determine the prisoner was just a prisoner, and then bonding with the guy enough to allow him to choose his own end.
Unfortunately in the previous episodes, Chester is just kind of there, with things happening to/around him. His family seem to know something about the yurei (or maybe the acting is better) and so I prefer to spend time with them. As has been said, the camp is a better setting than the war zone - claustrophobic and despairing, though we do have glimpses of people trying to have a life.
Things like Luz making a dress from the sack (which of course CT Howell then took away); the family hiding the sake - are good touches.
Overall though I am liking it. For instance, I am fine with what we've seen of the yurei so far and am content to watch that unfold.
I still think season one was better - more gripping, and the sense of horror and doom was greater, IMO. I think if I hadn't binged I may not have liked these episodes as much.
