When Legend of the Seeker returned for its second season, they had quite a challenge ahead of them. The Season 1 mission had been completed and the main villain of the show, Darken Rahl, was dead and defeated. What Richard Cypher and his friends needed was a new quest and a new antagonist.
Things got off to a pretty good start in the season premiere. "Marked" was filled with action and introduced a new task for Richard: find the Stone of Tears so the rift between the world of the living and the Underworld could be closed. Unfortunately, this quest was stretched out so it would last the entire season, when it would have been better to keep things moving as quickly as they had started. Since the search for the Stone was not enough to keep Richard busy for twenty-two episodes, there were many detours introduced to stall the storyline so that the Stone would not be found until the end. Considering how much more interesting the episodes at the end of the year were, it would have been a stronger season overall if they had concluded the Stone of Tears storyline quicker and introduced something new for the second half.
