One of Us is Lying season 2 is here! And this show is everything we could wish for and more. We came for the secrets but stayed for Murder Club and its creepy little games. Ready for a new meeting of this particular club?
Here we go!
It seems like forever since our last encounter with Murder Club and One of Us is Lying but it’s only been a year. At first, the four of them enjoyed separate lives in the small microcosm of their high school, but detention changed everything forever. And while the first season of the show revealed to us what happened in it, it left us with a lot more questions. Questions that season 2 is responsible for answering.
One of Us is Lying season 2 picks up the baton from season 1 and we know that Murder Club has to do with Jake’s disappearance. Throughout the season, we discover that, as is always the case on this show, nothing is what it seems. The group of friends doesn’t seem to know what happened to Jake but there is someone who does: Simon Says.
Simon Says begins sending the Murder Club threatening letters that cause several events to come to a head. However, the mystery of his/her identity is not the only one that keeps viewers guessing in One of Us is Lying season 2.
Jake had more secrets than he let on, and throughout the season, we discover that Greece is not precisely a country that he knows too well. Though honestly, is anyone surprised that Jake is lying? Not one bit, it fits his personality.
That said, One of Us is Lying has a unique way of showing how Murder Club looks like it’s about to fall apart. At all times during the season, you feel like only a very fine thread separates them from the breaking point. Secrets are a heavy burden to keep and each person in this group has one.
Secrets Revealed in One of Us is Lying Season 2
One of Us is Lying season 2 keeps you glued to your seat because when you really think you’ve figured it all out, the show takes it upon itself to let you know that you don’t have a clue about anything. I didn’t expect at all that Addy was the one who killed Jake, nor the location of his body. That was like…exploding my brain. A good plot twist is well crafted.
And that’s just the beginning of secrets. I mean, GISELLE!
I couldn’t stop screaming at my screen with this twisted turn of events. And lastly, the identity of Simon Says AKA Fiona. I have to say that this part of One of Us is Lying season 2 gave us Pretty Little Liars vibes but in the best of ways. Of course, this is not a group to trust…
Apart from all the secrets and mystery, what brings us to mind in One of Us is Lying season 2 are the ships. Although the end of season 1 left us in tears with Natewyn and Cooper & Kris, in season 2 there are some answers and many hopes (wink, wink).
Doubts, Changes, and a Time to Find Out Who You Are
But what One of Us is Lying season 2 perfectly reflects are the questions you ask yourself about your identity and gender as a teenager. Adolescence is a time of change, doubts, and fears and few shows dare to reflect it with the clarity that One of Us is Lying does. I would have liked some more advocacy on that and how this is still a big challenge in many ways, though.
As for my favorite moments of the season, there are several. Although many are in the last episodes. I love to know things and I love when all the pieces of the puzzle fall and fit into place. Although episode 5 is the perfect reflection of the calm before the storm and I really enjoy it.
One of the challenges that One of Us is Lying season 2 faces is to make a difference with other shows of the genre that start from a similar premise. And it far exceeds it.
This series keeps you on your toes throughout the episodes and you can’t stop thinking about what’s going to happen next. The tension, the mystery, and the revelations follow one another in escalation and that helps you never lose interest and not stop looking. So the season remains solid throughout its eight episodes.
