Warning: This put up accommodates spoilers from Outer Banks‘ Season 2 finale.
Outer Banks‘ Season 2 finale is titled “The Coastal Enterprise” however it additionally very simply might be referred to as “The Dads Who Aren’t Really Useless.”
The hour not solely particulars Ward’s profitable faking of his personal demise — to not point out his surviving a late-episode blow to the pinnacle that most likely ought to’ve completed him in — but additionally reveals that John B’s father, Massive John, isn’t gone, in spite of everything. (Learn what government producers Jonas and Josh Pate needed to say right here.)
We’ll need to know what you considered that vast twist in a second. However first, let’s evaluation what occurs in Episode 10.
SAME AS HE EVER WAS | We choose up proper the place Episode 9 left off, with Maddie reeling from coming face-to-face together with her back-from-beyond father, Ward. He explains that the explosion was the one approach that he might hold his family members secure “so we might be a household once more.” He particulars how he obtained away by donning scuba gear and swimming away whereas the wreckage blazed, then he fortunately declares they’re transferring to Guadalupe.
Maddie is, understandably, skeptical of his motivations, significantly when he claims John B agreed to commerce the gold cross for Sarah whereas she was unconscious. So the primary probability she will get, she fakes sea illness, slips out of her room — and sees the cross within the cargo maintain, proving Ward a liar — and steals a ship-to-shore radio so she will be able to name 911. However the ship’s captain catches her and shuts it down.
This enrages Ward, who slaps Sarah (!), binds her fingers and tosses her in a storage space. However then she manages to lure him there, as a substitute. And now looks like time to examine in on the others, proper?
MAYDAY! | Within the container, the Pogues put together their ship-takeover plan. John B and Pope will go, whereas Kiara and JJ watch for them and/or function backup. “Don’t get shot. That’s all I obtained,” Kiara provides earlier than the boys head out.
The fellows cut up up, with Pope heading to the engine room. As all of us rapidly deduced, it’s Cleo who’s manning the engine on this crew, and she or he places that obligation apart for a second to be able to battle Pope when she realizes he’s an intruder on her ship. She ultimately will get him up in opposition to the pipes, together with her knife to his throat, and he manages to choke out that he’s along with his associates Sarah and John B — which piques her curiosity. Elsewhere, John B sees Ward and realizes he’s been had. When he runs into Pope and Cleo, she decides to assist them take over the ship.
There’s lots of working round, however ultimately the captain is prisoner on the bridge, and the crew and a lot of the Camerons are lured into the hull, the place JJ and Kiara rapidly shut the doorways, locking them in. Ward and Rafe are nonetheless roaming the vessel, nonetheless, and the engine — absent Cleo’s attentions — is getting ready to doing one thing very gnarly. It’s time to get off this boat.
FULL CIRCLE | As Rafe chases John B all around the ship, Pope makes use of the crane to deliver up the (very heavy) cross from the cargo maintain, and Ward finds Sarah simply as she’s about to descend the ladder to the lifeboat she’s lowered. “You’re not certainly one of us, proper? Not anymore. And also you by no means shall be. You’re certainly one of them,” he says, and she or he nods sadly. So he grabs her by the neck and makes an attempt to strangle her.
Ward would most likely achieve success, besides that John B jumps in on the final minute and pulls the older man off her. They battle, and ultimately John B knocks Ward down so onerous that he hits his head on the steel fringe of the deck, a lot in the identical approach that John B’s dad did when he and Ward fought in regards to the gold. “Is that this how you probably did it?” John B asks, crying, as Ward bleeds and definitely appears like he’s not going to be respiration for much longer. “That is all of your fault,” the teenager provides.
Then John B appears at Sarah, who appears to offer her consent for him to dump her dad into the ocean like a barnacle-covered anchor. However earlier than he can achieve this, it looks like Ward dies. And plus, there’s mayhem occurring on the opposite aspect of the ship: The captain has freed himself and his crew, and he’s simply knocked out JJ and tossed him into the ocean.
Kiara instantly hops in and pulls JJ to the floor, serving to him keep afloat as she screams for assist. And Pope involves the belief that he’s not going to have the ability to depart the boat alive with the cross in his possession. “If we will’t have it, nobody can,” he mutters to himself, making the crane drop the artifact so it plunges into the deep. Rafe and members of the crew — who’ve realized precisely how a lot cash simply obtained added to Davy Jones’ locker — scramble to catch the rope tied to the cross earlier than it fully slithers off the deck. The distraction permits Cleo and Pope to leap off the aspect and escape.
ALL’S WELL THAT ENDS… HORRIBLY | Ultimately, John B, Sarah, Cleo, Pope, JJ (who’s OK, simply dazed) and Kiara make it into the lifeboat. Rafe and the crew are profitable in pulling the Cross of Santo Domingo again to security, which implies the Camerons are accountable for all the gold. And when the lifeboat’s motor stalls for a second, making the Pogues a gaggle of bobbing geese, Rafe goals his rifle at them however doesn’t take the shot. They rapidly get the motor revving once more, and the kids get away with their lives… however not a lot else.
Later, Rafe tells a despondent (but by some means STILL ALIVE?!) Ward that he’s ready to steer the household’s battle now, and that he’s going to trace down Sarah. “I’ll discover her,” he guarantees in that very scary approach he has, and both blood loss or full failure as a mother or father or somewhat of each makes Ward stare at him, glassy-eyed, and say nothing.
MEANWHILE, IN BARBADOS | The kids make it to a abandoned seaside, which JJ christens “Poguelandia.” They begin a bonfire and celebration, as a result of Pogues gotta Pogue. Again on the Outer Banks, Kiara’s household hangs “Lacking” posters together with her face on them, Pope’s dad is gloomy, Topper finds the Cameron residence empty and the brand new sheriff provides a press convention.
BUT WAIT. Then we transfer to Barbados, the place Carla Limbrey (virtually forgot about her, proper?) will get out of a cab and brandishes an envelope with the Royal Service provider emblem on it. “How is he?” she asks a person at a shack. “Half useless for a very long time,” the person replies, however brings her in anyway.
“You wrote to me in regards to the shroud,” she says to somebody off-camera. “I do know the place it’s,” a person replies. “I may help you.” Wait a minute… it may well’t be… However because the digital camera turns to him, IT IS! “However you need to assist my son,” Massive John Routledge says.
