If you’ve already devoured all eight episodes of Sweet Tooth Season 1, then you might be little question hungry for extra. But earlier than we are able to even take into consideration what’s subsequent for Sweet Tooth and Sweet Tooth, we have to actually take into consideration what the present pulled off in that season finale.
SPOILERS forward for Sweet Tooth’s sprawling, game-changing season finale. You prepared? Let’s unpack what simply went down.
Sweet Tooth Season 1 ending defined
Throughout Season 1, we’ve adopted three distinct storylines: we’ve adopted Gus as he, Jeppard, and Bear made their method to Colorado in the hunt for Gus’s mother. We’ve additionally watched Dr. Aditya Singh seek for a vaccine to avoid wasting his spouse Rani, whereas additionally coping with a neighborhood violently clinging to no matter scraps of normalcy they will discover. And lastly, we’ve adopted ex-office employee Aimee as she’s remodeled an deserted zoo right into a protected haven for hybrids referred to as The Preserve. In the season finale, all of those threads come collectively.
First, there’s Gus’s storyline: he discovered his mom’s residence however he didn’t discover the household he sought. Instead, he discovered that he doesn’t have mother and father a lot as a crew of scientists who created him. Realizing that his “father” lied to him, Gus’s complete world is shattered. Seeking any type of group, he reaches out to the Preserve—completely unaware that the Preserve’s been taken over by General Abbot and his Last Men. The Last Men arrive, take Gus, and shoot Jepperd, leaving him for useless.
Second, there’s Dr. Aditya Singh’s storyline: General Abbot lastly discovered that Singh’s the one who inherited the duty of discovering a vaccine. He arrived to “recruit” Singh simply in time to avoid wasting him and his spouse from being burned alive by their neighbors. Abbot took the helpless Aditya and Rani to the Preserve the place the mad dictator is now forcing the ethical physician to go in opposition to every part he believes and experiment on dwell hybrids. When Gus arrives on the Preserve, he’s introduced instantly to Singh—who hears Gus discuss and realizes that this hybrid can’t be dissected. Instead, an ethically crushed Singh will get one other child to experiment on.
Third, there’s Aimee’s storyline: her worst nightmare got here true when the Last Men arrived on the Preserve, aiming to take it over. They achieved their purpose, and never even Aimee’s escape plan for all the youngsters labored. Aimee’s adopted hybrid daughter Wendy and the entire different children had been tracked down and brought by Abbot’s forces. With the Preserve beneath Abbot’s management and all of her kids kidnapped, Aimee goes and recruits some assist: she finds Jepperd bleeding out, and brings him again to her deserted workplace constructing the place she patches him up. When he lastly involves, she reveals the plan: they’re gonna get their children again.
As if all that interconnected-ness wasn’t sufficient, the ultimate second of Season 1 introduces one other plot specializing in Bear: we be taught that Bear, who’s again in Gus’s mother’s residence, is de facto named Becky and she or he has a sister. The sister is Wendy, the pig/little one hybrid adopted daughter of Aimee—y’know, the one which’s captured within the Preserve and new besties with Gus. And that’s not all: within the final seconds of the season, Becky will get a name from the satellite tv for pc cellphone. On the opposite finish is a scientist approach up north in Alaska—and that scientist is Gus’s “mother” Birdie.
So, what does this all imply for Season 2? If we get a Season 2, then we’ll probably observe Dr. Singh as he tries to discover a vaccine by way of ugly strategies, and we’ll in all probability see Wendy and Gus (and all the opposite children) develop nearer whereas in captivity. We’ll additionally in all probability see Aimee crew up with Jepperd in an assault on Abbot and the previous Preserve. And then there’s Becky and Birdie. Birdie’s in all probability in Alaska looking for a remedy, because the virus originated from an ice pattern taken from approach up north. Will Birdie hightail it again to Colorado when she hears that Gus is alive?
Hopefully we gained’t have to attend too lengthy to search out out in Season 2.
