It is time for us to be once again “becoming more than just being” because Apple TV Plus’s thriller drama series, The Mosquito Coast, has come back to our screens for its second season this week. The last season closed with the Fox family leaving the place on a boat after attempting to and successfully liberating their son from imprisonment. The main character, Allie Fox’s family of four, had gone through six changes in identity in the last nine years in their efforts to flee the authorities.
As such, the two children of Allie and Margot were curious to know the reason behind it. The debut season of The Mosquito Coast explored these intra-family conflicts while showcasing the worldview held by Allie himself.
The Mosquito Coast Season 2 Episode 1 Preview
The pilot episode from the sophomore season of The Mosquito Coast is due to come out this week, and in it, we will see Allie and Margot in disagreement when it comes to telling their children what events had exactly transpired, which left them constantly running for their life.
The episode also includes a time-jumping narrative through which we are taken back about 13 years before the present moment, where Allie is seen entering an office and having a discussion with Pavani regarding their presentation, which is coming up, about the technology he had come up with.
It was first introduced in the first season when Allie mentioned that he had developed a prediction system based on projections of climate change that could detect variations in the migration patterns of birds. Now in Episode 1 from Season 2, Pavani and he works on their pitch to try and make it more enthralling.
People don’t change, Allie. They just reveal themselves over time.#TheMosquitoCoast

The Mosquito Coast Season 2 Episode 1 Spoilers
Allie subsequently pulls up to a diner and sees Margot enter the same with another man, Richard Beaumont, from the comfort of his car. It seemed as though the pair were dating, but nothing as such was confirmed. Richard does not exactly think the world of Allie, but Margot is swift to defend him.
Then Allie drives to his place to speak with Isela, who extends an invitation to him, one for Allie to join them in a place where he is actually needed. Somewhere he can genuinely help around and be an asset. However, Allie is not convinced, as his priority is staying right where he is for his family’s sake.
Later, on the day of their pitch, Allie ignores Pavani when she calls him continuously to go instead meet Margot at the university where she works as a professor to tell her that he is concerned about her relationship with Richard, who holds ridiculous opinions after watching a video of Richard speaking about the exceptionalism of humanity online.
When Margot seems in no mood to pay him any heed, Allie returns to his office, where he is immediately greeted with Pavani’s frustration. Then in their pitch meeting, one of the investors suggests using his technology for data mining for homeland security and even the government, in lieu of what it was really created for.
Allie’s ideology and ethics scream that it is wrong, and he means to object but is quickly shut down when he is told that he does not remotely have any control over the application of his invention. As such, he goes on to hack into their system in order to prevent any progress in such a gross direction.
As a consequence, he marks himself as a person of interest. The official episode title for The Mosquito Coast Season 2 Episode 1 is “The Damage Done”, in which the truth about how the Fox family became fugitives is finally revealed, and believe it or not, it has more to do with Margot than it is with Allie.
