I binged the entire season in two sittings so the episodes blended together for me. Keep that in mind when you read my review.

The pacing of the drama is different from  the first season. Probably because the director changed for season 2. There are quite a few plot holes, some very obvious and some only noticeable after you watch the episode a second time. The pacing feels slower compared to the first season. There was also a serious lack of character development in the protagonist (Fang Mu), or any sign of him showing trauma (or recovering from it) from the first season despite the theme of show being, y'know, about the mind. There's also less profiling of criminals and more old fashioned detective work from our protagonist despite him being a profiler.

The opening case was nice, very nice, set the mood quite well. And then the next episode we didn't see the protagonist until near the end AKA protag's existence feels weakened in this season. Also there were way more cliffhangers than there were, y'know, actual gratifying stuff like finding the criminal, which is a minus for me.

The overall mood of season 2 was not as dark (for me) as season 1. Probably because of the director's lack of experience combined with the fact that he is directing the second season of a show and has to mimic the style of the previous director (to a certain extent). And also because of the antagonists and the emotions they evoke. Not gonna say more cause spoilers.

TBH I prefer the first season more. I rewatched episode 20 of season 1 several times already since I finished it a day before I started season 2. I guess it's because

Confused Psychological thriller drama with Bromance touch

I watched the first season and it was very thrilling and exciting the first seven episodes then dull and boring with lots of jumping through cases and shots taken ,,, it made my head hurts and didn't feel good about it at all
but
the second season was way better in pacing also the production was better yet
the director is the worst ,,,, I don't know what was he thinking
the camera work was very poor cutting short every climax scene ,,, capturing reactions from the other side of a horrific or traumatizing scene left me imagining what did this character saw and that was really frustrating
I kept skipping the looooooong dialogues the male lead was having most of the times analyzing psychological aspects and turn to be wrong about them later
Most of the time I was confused what's going on ?? the director didn't just confuse the audience watching he made it impossible to keep track of what is actually happening to the point you just go with the flow
after all that confusion and frustration the only thing kept me watching was the bromance
The two detective lived with each other and cared for each other in brotherly way also they had a scene in every end of the episode where they nag each other and brank each other that was fun to watch
the final identical episodes were like optional which finale to choose from
I chose episode 24 she was a criminal she deserved to go to jail
