I can't do justice to the vibrant thrill of the central performances. The bond between Maya and Anna feels unspoken and lived-in, full of sentences that trail off into meaningful glances.

While I appreciate all of the work Konkle is turning in here in Season 2, especially as she plays a young teen caught in the middle of her parents' messy separation, it's clear that Maya's emotional journey is the anchor of PEN15 this season.

Pen15 has definitely changed, but in ways that are almost entirely for the better. What was once a gimmick is now a thoroughly excellent and warm show.

This will presumably always be Erskine and Konkle's showcase - both should be awards contenders - but the second season accentuates casting director Melissa DeLizia's smart work selecting the younger actors.
