Shadow and Bone (Season 2): Expectations
We are going to give a short recap of the ending of season 1. All of our heroes enter into the fold for the final time and once again, there are more deaths and are on the cards. In this Kirigan has used Alina’s growing strengths to create a new tunnel the darkness within the fold. It has revealed a big battle that breaks out and it will seem the world is more divided than ever.
In this the stags power will be eluding too many of the characters like in the vision, Alina has realized only that she also can harness the power, not Kirigan In this Ben Bernes has said about how all of his characters would change and also adapt in the second season in his newfound that power saying:
“He’s someone who has had an army and has been in charge of this medieval hierarchy, someone who’s revered and feared. But he’s even more alone now – with a handful of vendettas, and an amassed group of people trying to kill him. He’s sort of all-powerful now. He just has to think something dark, and it will happen. So it’ll be interesting to see which characters we find him interacting with going forward.”
Jessie Mei Li has said to DigitalSpy has also made some notable comments regarding what he can expect, saying:
“Alina goes from being a scared, little pup who can’t look at anyone in the eye, to suddenly having this sense of gravity to her. We feel that she’s grown a lot, and she’s really strong. But she’s still got a long way to go, which is a nice place to leave her. We know where she’s going now, and where she’s got to go.”
Now we have to see that this series will stick to the books that have remained to be seen. It has been pretty very close thus far with some of the notable deviations but also has the central plotline of the second season.
The plot of the second book reveals, “ The darkling has emerged from the Shadow Fold with terrifying new power and a dangerous plan that will test the very boundaries of the natural world. With the help of a notorious privateer, Alina retunes to the country she abandoned, determined to fight the forces gathering against Ravka. But as her power grows, Alina slips deeper into the darkling’s game of forbidden magic, and farther away from Mal. Somehow, she will have to choose between her country, her power, and the love she always thought would guide her or risk losing everything to the oncoming storm.”
In this second season, we will see Alina and Mal running and looking for another mythical target that will aid them in their battle against Kirigan when potentially have been teaming up with the new ally.
In this, the Crow will feature in the second season who have returned in Ketterdam and are coming up against the old rivals.
This second season has promised to be the “political intrigue, bloody battles, flying ships, reunited friends, new countries and also a family secret that will shatter all of the expectations.
