Homecoming Season 2: The Recap
Homecoming Season 2 just wrapped and we can’t stop talking about it. Janelle Monae replaced Julia Roberts who serves as Executive Producer on the Amazon Series, and we’ve gotta say she didn’t disappoint.
In the Season 2 trailer, we saw that Janelle Monae would spend the entire season re-tracing her steps after suffering memory loss. The premiere opens the same way with Alex (Monae) waking up disoriented in a rowboat. When she looks out to shore, she sees who we now know was Walter Cruz (Stephan James) running away from her. Meanwhile, we have Walter Cruz, trying to figure out what happened to him at Geist during Season 1.
We then jump to Audrey and Leonard having a not so friendly exchange about what he’ll say at the Geist party. He then proceeds to go on an unorthodox rant at the party with Audrey eventually having to silence him. This is happening while Bunda is making sneaky deals with guys who want to transform the infamous red extract into a vapor.
Walter continues his quest to find out what happened to him at Geist, and it leads him to Leonard. Leonard, hoping to get back at Bunda and Audrey, gives Walter his Homecoming file. Walter begs Leonard to finish what Geist started by erasing all of his memories. Leonard refuses his request, but then uses the situation as leverage to help plot against Audrey and Bunda.
Bunda and Audrey thinks everything is all good and proceed with the Geist party. Alex has also arrived as her journey to finding out who she is has led her to Geist. Audrey recognizes her and drills her about where she’s been over the past day or so just as Alex spots Walter in a catering uniform, pushing a cart full of empty jugs with the suspicious red drink in it. She watches everyone go down one by one as the succumb to red drink. Leonard watches from the balcony above, and gives Audrey a look of sweet victory as Audrey realizes what’s happening to her.
Walter casually strolls past all the zombie-like party goers and finds Alex, who’s the only one that didn’t drink the red drink, sitting next to a passed out Audrey. Even though she can’t fully remember Audrey, she doesn’t want her to wake alone like she did so she sits next to her waiting for her to awaken. Walter leaves Geist to go on what may be a continuation of the search for answers.
Leonard returns to his farm and finds Bunda lying down in the field, zoned out from drinking the drink saying: “This stuff really works, huh? She told him she was supposed to give her daughter away, but she guesses that’s out now. Leonard has no remorse for her as he lets her know that he still plans on destroying the crops. He puts his hat over her face and leaves her in the field as her memory fades away.
This mystery is a much watch. Binge the full season on Amazon Prime.
