Watch out! This post contains spoilers.
The second season of Netflix’s Dead to Me tied up a few loose ends while creating a handful of new ones. Sure, we found out how Steve Wood really died, and the stop sign Jen has been fighting to get placed in Laguna Beach is finally put up, but the impulsive decisions of Jen and Judy have opened up several boxes of chaos that everyone will have to deal with in the next season — if we get the next season. To be fair, the second installment of the series dropped on Friday, May 8, so it’s still pretty early to determine whether it’ll get renewed for a third. Considering how popular the series is, we’re going to cross our fingers and hope that the streamer gives the people what they want!
If the show gets a third round, it’s already set up its next big drama: will Ben get caught for hitting Jen and Judy in the season finale? In the last scene of episode 10, the two women are driving back home in a brand-new car when another vehicle slams into the driver’s side at full speed, knocking Judy unconscious and hurting Jen. Ben is revealed to be the other driver, and he’s been driving under the influence as seen by the camera’s pan to the empty bottle of whiskey beside him before he peels off. While both Jen and Judy seem to be gaining consciousness in the seconds after the crash, who knows how coherent either of them is after a hit like that! The next season would have to contend with the fallout from the hit, especially if either woman was able to see Ben’s face amid the smoke.
Of course, there’s also Steve’s murder to be dealt with, which the finale also teases when a dog starts digging around where Jen and Judy buried him in the forest. If his body’s been found, Detective Perez is going to find it pretty difficult to ignore Jen’s confession as they planned. We’ll just have to wait and see what Netflix decides, but we’re betting that our favorite duo will come out alright in the end.
