What Happened At The End Of Season 2 Of “The Rain”?
In the final episode of the second season of “ The Rain ”, titled ‘Only the Strongest Survive’, as Simone tries to heal Rasmus, Martin and Patrick escape through the woods. When Rasmus regains consciousness he learns of Lea’s death. Also, according to the test that Fie performed on Rasmus, he is cured of the virus.
After an unfriendly conversation with an Apollon leader, the organization orders the death of Patrick and Martin, but the one in charge of assassinating them, Kira, who is actually an infiltrator and is against Apollon, spares their lives.
When some women appear asking about Rasmus, Jean, motivated by the resentment he feels for Simone’s brother, lets them take him and Sarah away. They both manage to escape thanks to Rasmus faking a crisis.
Unable to deal with the pain, Jean hides in the checkpoint and asks for Rasmus to be brought to her. In the middle of the discussion and with everyone gathered, Jean sounds the alarm, and Apollon’s men arrive.
During the escape, Sarah is hit by a bullet and dies in the arms of Rasmus, who manages to control the virus and destroys everything in its path. Seeing his brother lose control once again, Simone shoots him in the chest, causing Rasmus to walk away from everyone and reconnect with Apollon.
The episode closes with Sarah opening her eyes suddenly, apparently, by kissing her, Rasmus gave her the virus.
What Will Happen In Season 3 Of “The Rain”?
For the third season of ” The Rain ” Rasmus will be in the hands of Apollon again, so the safest thing is that his sister Simone and the rest of the group try to rescue him. Also, if this is the latest installment of Danish fiction, what the organization is looking for will probably be revealed.
In the final episode Sten explained that his goal was never to cure Rasmus, but to become like him: “We can adapt (to the virus), make it part of us … We will not cure it, we will cure it.”
Another issue that the next installment must resolve is the relationship between the Anderson brothers since Simone tried to kill him, although he intended to stop his crisis for Rasmus it was a betrayal. Will he be able to forgive her?
On the other hand, after revealing that Kira was an infiltrator in Apollon, her life and her objective were possibly deepened.
