But then, something unexplainable happens when the mystery man forcibly acquires all the samples and abducts Emma. She is taken into a van and she sees her arch-enemy Lorenz tied and duct-taped. The mystery man is revealed to be Dr Andreas Winter.

Why did he kidnap Emma and Lorenz? And what are his intentions? Let’s take a look at how Emma could be used for his illegal experiments.

Why did Andreas abduct Emma?

The biggest reason for kidnapping Emma is her superpower. I mean, she was the only one who managed to come out alive after the dangerous experiments done by Dr Lorenz. All the other children died because of it, but she managed to stay alive. It will be really useful for Andreas to see how she did that. The power of the particular genome experiment is well-known. It is dangerous and can kill a person within minutes. The ending suggests that Andreas will be using Lorenz’s research to his own advantage. He believes that the experiment worked really well on Emma and now he wants to create a new genetic alteration that is supreme in nature.

According to his plan, the new alteration will give everyone a strong immunity system like Emma and people will be able to lead a healthier lifestyle. Although his intentions are pretty good, that’s not an ideal way to do that. Also, he might have his own agenda. Maybe, he is doing all this to become a legend in the scientific world and earn a lot of benefits.

On the other hand, he might also have a sinister plan attached to it as well. He might use the experiment to do some evil stuff. All in all, Season 2 will be a helluva ride that you don’t want to miss. Emma and Lorenz will be making an unlikely alliance to get out of captivity while Andreas will do anything to achieve what he wants.

Season 2 of ‘Biohackers’ will be out on Netflix on Friday, July 9.
