I Know This Much Is True Episode 2 Spoilers
At the end of the first episode, Thomas is transferred from Settle to a maximum-security prison. It is pretty clear that it is neither safe nor a stable environment for him. In the next episode, we will find Dominick trying to get his brother out of there and back where he belongs. He mentions his social worker and his doctor, both of whom are deemed unavailable at the moment. In Episode 2, we will get to meet them and see how empathetic they are to Thomas.
After Thomas cuts off his hand in the public library, he comes to the attention of the media, and they seem pretty desperate at getting his story. It would certainly make for a juicy piece in their newspaper and primetime segments, but Dominick is not ready to expose his brother to further scrutiny than he already has to endure. However, this isn’t something that he can shrug off with just one “no”. They will come back, and we’ll see what tricks they resort to in order to get their way.
We also expect some more flashbacks into the past and delve deeper into the relationship between the brothers. The early stages of Thomas’s illness will be the focus, along with the skewering perceptions of the people around him. Dominick’s personal life will also take center stage as we get to know more about how he feels to be in a perpetual struggle to keep his brother safe. He also mentions Joy, his girlfriend, and we’ll get to understand the equation between them, especially considering that Dominic still seems to be in love with his ex-wife, Dessa.
