I agree with others that this show is just not well-written. We see the same problems in TWD when characters get philosophical and try to talk about "deep things." The dialogue is very clunky and nothing substantial or insightful is ever said. However, the characters were already mostly well-established by the original show runners, so we go along with it and imagine that it's thought-provoking.
However, on FTWD, the characters never had a strong careful development, so when we have dialogues like we had on the last episode, they seem more obviously 2-dimensional and nonsensical.
The only thing I really enjoyed was some of the cinematography. Some of the nighttime vineyard scenes were well-lit, with bluish or redish backlighting in the sky.
