One of the film’s few mis­steps is its de­pic­tion of the death of Peter Quill’s mother: a trau­matic loss that is han­dled in bluntly ma­nip­u­la­tive fash­ion. That’s not the case here, as Tell­tale be­gins to flesh out their re­la­tion­ship – firstly via a flash­back se­quence and later in a brief vi­sion – to sub­tly mov­ing ef­fect. The end­ing sug­gests this sub­plot will ex­tend into Episode Two and pos­si­bly be­yond. So far, it’s one of the few con­vinc­ing rea­sons to tune in next time.
