Could someone explain what each of the animal motifs are? It's hard to miss the butterflies, but every episode?
Well, the second episode has the pigeons. Another episode has Silas' sacrifice of the deer on the road. I could swear there's an episode with ravens/crows, but I can't come up with any specifics. However, I'd say that this is another case of claiming that something happens every episode when in reality it only happens two or three times a season.
Actually, that was a case of writing that around the time the third episode aired. In my defense, it was
every episode - but only because there hadn't been many yet.
