Season 2 is going to see new locations: This one in Amsterdam suggests more tourist destinations, and the happy faces suggest it’s a fun trip more than a running away from ‘Whispers’. Also, Will (Gorski) is still around, and looking well. So, the cliffhanger where he faces off with Whispers may not have gone too badly for him. (Jane Ackroyd/netflix; text: sarit ray)

More power to LGBT Pride Marches. Seaon 1 had a pride march segment as well. And the show has made massive pro-LGBT statements. It must be noted that the Wachowskis siblings (both having undergone sex change themselves) are advocates for LGBT rights. In season 2, it seems the whole principal cast has joined in.

Kala (Tina Desai) is still in an exotic location, perhaps glimpses from her honeymoon, which does not end well. And she still looks worried, hinting that perhaps she’s still torn between Rajan (Purab Kohli) and Wolfgang. (Jane Ackroyd/netflix; text: sarit ray)

Lito’s arc finishes at an emotional cliffhanger as well, with him facing flak for coming out as gay. It seems he’s finally able to face his inner demons, and those outside. With help from all the Sensates. Note that Will is in uniform. This could be significant, since he’s been on the run and away from official duty for a while. (Jane Ackroyd/netflix; text: sarit ray)

There’s a new character: Sylvester McCoy is a former Doctor Who (popular British sc-fi TV show). He’s the second character from that show, since Freema Agyeman (Amanita), one of the Doctor’s companions, has been there from the beginning. (Jane Ackroyd/netflix; text: sarit ray)
