In season two a new character, Liam is introduced. He comes to the town stating he has a cure but he’s not to be trusted. My favourite character is Adam. I loved him in the first season too. The reason i like him is because he’s trying to be the good guy and he doesn’t trust anyone. Whereas, there’s people like Wiley who trust too easily. He’s always wary, especially of Liam, which he was right to do so.
I hated Chuck in the first season but he’s so much more likeable in this season. He cares now and shows his softer side, which was nice. I felt in season 1 he was very horrible to people but that changed. He forms a bond with Wiley and her son, which is also his half brother, which I thought was really sweet. It brought out the best in him.
I think I preferred season 1 to this second season but it was still very enjoyable and had so much drama. I liked the new people they introduced, they added a new dynamic to the group of survivors. There’s still certain characters that are unlikeable and annoying but the show wouldn’t be the same without them.
This season had a lot of shocking moments. When Gord died, I was quite shocked but pleased. I didn’t like him. When his little sister, Franny shot Renee, I was shocked but she did deserve it. Then there was the finale episode. That was amazing and the best of the season. The ending was shocking. It left on a cliffhanger. A selection of the group inside Pretty Lake got out and they were cured of the virus, given new identities and a chance to live a normal life. However, some people stayed behind the President had plans to blow up Pretty Lake. Not wanting this to happen, Adam leaks a video of everything the government did to them so the forces that were tasked to blow the town up backed down. In the end though Adam lost. They released the virus into the world so people are dying everywhere. The President also shot herself in the head. A lot happened in that finale and I loved every minute of it. I really hope they bring it back for a third season because that finale has set up so much. However, a third season hasn’t been confirmed yet so I’m a little worried.
Rating: It’s a great storyline but it’s been done so many times before. The show carries itself well but it’s still the same as a lot of other TV shows out there. 6/10.
