The daughter is also dead. Agent Adams reported it to Harper. Chase still talks to her on the phone, just as he also sees and talks to his dead wife.

Judging by her age, his wife was probably Hamzad's wife, or was supposed to be. Part of the betrayal that needed avenging.

His dogs were a bit puzzling. They are clearly well trained, yet neither one alerted Chase of the first intruder. They waited until Chase sees him down the hallway before they engage. Confused Chase should be awaken by the guy screaming in pain from being made a chew toy.

I saw first two episodes. Played one after the other on FX. Liked it and looking forward to seeing how it works out for him. Just ordered the book off Amazon to see how it ends up comparing to the show.

To address him waiting to call in the dogs. My thoughts were he did not want to get them shot and he needed to know his new physical limitations.

I'm impressed! Episodes #1 and #2 were very well done and I'm wondering how much of what Chase sees is real and which is illusion caused by dementia. I'm looking forward to future episodes and seeing where this journey takes us.

I must have missed that. If true, why then did he threaten to hurt her if Chase didn't do what he was told?

I think she's still alive and just hidden (although Harper stated that they knew where she was). This site seems to agree that she's still alive. (FWIW)

I figure the daughter is alive, they just faked her death a while ago to keep her hidden.
Really digging the fight scenes. They display the good moves you'd expect from trained killers as well as the sloppiness and running out of gas that real life dictates.

I'm just going to call it 'okay'.

Thanks Dwill104, I watched the first two just this afternoon on Hulu....

The action seems a little slow to come and since there was none in the 2nd episode they had to put in a imagined one of what he could do.

Near the end of eps. 2 it was reported that his daughter had committed suicide years before.... I'm not sure... I think she may still be alive. And yes, I'm pretty sure his dead wife was probably the wife of the war lord that has asked the U.S. to deliver him.

I think they missed a good scene at the last of episode 2 when Lithgow is talking on the phone to the assassin .... he should ave told him that the guy he is sending him to kill is better than him.

Wife and I watched ep 1 and 2 yesterday and we both like it. Ok w slow pacing. But how did Harper/Lithgow recognize Bridges/Dan Chase/Johnny from a B&W lapel cam picture after 30 yrs?

This, since in the first episode they discussed the neither would recognize the other...

Well they have done a good job with the actor that plays the young Bridges....looks a lot like him.. sort of okay with the young Lithgow character....

If Harper has the means to get in touch with Chase by getting his number, then it should not be difficult to find out who Chase is calling and perhaps even listen in. If Chase really did called and talked to Emily, the feds should know how to track her down. Chase wasn't using a secure line.

One thing I found interesting, is the identity of the actress who plays her is also a mystery. Adult Emily is not on the cast list. They seem to be keeping it under wraps for a surprise reveal later. She sounds like Mary Elizabeth Winstead. We'll see.

I can only suspend my disbelief so much. Would the woman Brennerman is playing REALLY bump uglies with Chase?? She must have granddaddy issues.

When he was caught on video after killing the guys that grabbed him I think he got a look at him. Would have to rewatch to verify.

Maybe when they were comparing meds at the restaurant, that blue pill in his box caught her eye. She's been adrift for some time, no? Any port in a storm.
