Spoiler JL :
I hear ya. Again, just a theory and I'm very likely wrong. It's just something that came to mind. The JL conceit I don't think makes for good TV except maybe a miniseries. I assume this is a show that plans to have more seasons. It'd basically be a totally different show once exposed, and I'm sure none of us wants that.
As for unresolved issues, I'm not sure what you mean exactly. Unresolved plotlines? Unresolved plotholes? I've not seen too many plotholes here especially given the mind-bendy nature of this show. Sometimes one just has to take things for what they are and not overthink it. As for plotlines, that may be case, but that is not uncommon with ongoing series.
Cobel is still a mystery to me, and I was thinking on it more tonight. Her firing puzzled me. But more puzzling is her nature. And again this relates to your issue of her laugh. Take her viewing of the session with Mark and Casey - and this is not the first instance. She is obviously testing the Severance process with putting those two together. Seeing if love and attraction breaks through the severed barrier, which it appears to do to an extent. She also in one moment seems pleased, enamored even, at this result. The next moment she appears cold, fires Casey, and send her back to the testing floor. Cobel's firing itself though is puzzling in terms of where this may be headed, as I've always thought the character "key" to everything going on. Next episode will be very interesting when innie "Mark" awakes in Cobel's embrace
BTW, IMDB lists a second season, so this will continue (with 10 epis this time)
