Black Spot Season 2 Ending Explained
So, the entire second season of Black Spot focused on Laurene continuing her search for the person who kidnapped her years ago. Plus, there was another person with her in that room. The investigation eventually led to identifying him as Sylvain Tessier. The only thing missing is his kidnapping remained a mystery. Coming in a circle to the mysterious forest, Laurene visited a local librarian. He tells her a story of Romans who worshipped the stag god named Cernunnos. He didn’t like people in his forest and thus eventually killed the Romans.
Laurene also acknowledges the fact that an ancient holiday is coming. Meaning there will be another kill. According to the Roman story, the forest will kill more people. When the Colonel declines to help Laurene thinking she is crazy, she decides to go all out on her own. Laurene and the townspeople go on to hunt down the stag only to have more death tolls on their side. Louis manages to injure the creature, and Laurene takes her shot, following him.
Laurene suspects the creature is none other than Sylvian Tessier, who was kidnapped with her 20 years ago. In turn, Doc Barami tests the DNA, and yes, it is Sylvain Tessier. But That’s not it; Sylvian Tessier is also related to Laurene. That’s the only cliffhanger set out for the third season.
Black Spot Season 2 A Seed For Third Season
So, Black Spot basically ended the second season bowing seed for another installment. The cliffhanger is how Sylvian Tessier and Laurene are related? We are not sure the third season is gonna happen yet. Still taking a look at it, there are two ways Laurene might share the DNA with stag Sylvian Tessier.
First, they are indeed biologically related. Sylvian Tessier might have been the creature, and probably Laurene was supposed to be the next to accompany him in the forest until she decided to break out, obviously. If not biologically connected, the other thing is the time creature saved her. Probably that’s the time the DNA might have transferred. Furthermore, the only thing that could explain all this mess is the third season for Black Spot, which we are hoping to arrive at as soon as possible.
