'The Society' season 2: Cassandra and Allie's mother may be at the center of all their problems. Here's why
One particular mystery has our minds still perplexed. So far, the show seems to have already settled this, but we're not entirely sure that the way they handled it was the best way to do it.
Spoilers for the first season of 'The Society'
The mystery of 'The Society' has us looking for answers since the first season came to an end. We are doing re-runs and digging deeper every possible way to ensure that we haven't missed any clue. The finale ended on such a cliffhanger with our protagonists Allie (played by Kathryn Newton) and Will (played by Jacques Colimon) getting locked up for allegedly rigging the democratic elections that the new civilization was putting in place. Toby Wallace's Campbell Eliot has New Ham pretty much under control – Lexie (played by Grace Victoria Cox) has put her half-baked views out there, while Harry (played by Alex Fitzalan) is playing puppet at the hands of the town's resident sociopath Campbell.
A thriller about a group of teenagers mysteriously being transported to a facsimile of their posh hometown without any parental supervision, 'The Society' fuses the supernatural with the suspense and adds to that mix strong characters boasting stronger character arcs.
First and foremost, we need to know how exactly were the teenagers transported to this land. Were they sent on purpose or are they a part of a crude experiment (which we hope isn't the case because this theory isn't exciting)?
But one particular mystery has our minds still perplexed. So far, the show seems to have already settled this, but we're not entirely sure that the way they handled it was the best way to do it.
After Cassandra (played by Rachel Keller) was shot dead on the sidewalk, Dewey (played by Seth Meriwether) was held responsible. Not a far stretch considering how he made had made some ridiculously sexist and misogynistic remarks about her heading the new town. So naturally, most of the people in the new society thought it was him that did it.
But, we're here to discuss the theory that it wasn't him after all. And that Allie shot the wrong person to death.
It also seems that the dog can travel in between the two towns – we see him in the finale running up to Amanda Pressman, Cassandra and Allie's mother, played by Amy Carlson. This could mean that traveling between these two spaces isn't entirely impossible.
The Pressman mother might very well have traveled to the new civilization and when Cassandra saw her, she had to kill her to shut her up. Remember how shocked Cassandra was on seeing who was in front of her armed with a gun?
This could mean that the parents (or at least some of them) know where the kids are and might have sent them there on purpose.
Now with the season 2 confirmed for a 2020 release, we can only hope for more answers. But we have our money on the Pressman mother and don't tell us you haven't already thought about it already.
The first season is currently airing on Netflix.
