It can be hard to know what to expect from international TV. Some shows wouldn't be out of place on HBO or AMC. Other series feel more idiosyncratic, like Korea's Chef and My Fridge. Netflix's new Japanese series Alice in Borderland definitely seems to be in the former category, capturing audiences with its grown-up Hunger Games-meets-Ready Player One action and intrigue. The show's first part finished on a huge cliffhanger. Here are five pivotal moments to expect from Season 2, based on the original manga. MAJOR spoilers for Alice in Borderland Season 2 ahead. Alice in Borderland Season 1 was surprisingly faithful to the original manga. The character designs are similar, and the plot hits all the same points. Therefore, Season 2 will probably take the same cues from the source material, meaning the entire rest of the story is available already. But beware, the shocking answers will change everything about how you look at the show. Really, this is a Lost-caliber reveal. Still here? Let's get started. Last we saw our hero Arisu and his comrades, they had just collected all the numbered cards in the mysterious game. That spurred on the release of 12 blimps, each of which held a giant banner displaying a face card.
True love and masterminded battles to the death rarely mix, just ask Peeta and Katniss.
Each of these blimps represents one of the final 12 games, all higher in difficulty than the ones that came before. In the manga, these games included a tactical battle royale against a nudist, a mahjong game, a number guessing game, a possibly endless game of trust with a traitor, and a never-ending, boundless game against a ruthless sniper. Basically, everything is turned up to the max, and everyone's specialties are tested to the extreme. Arisu and climber's daughter Usagi have had a close relationship since they first played tag together. But Season 2 will see them finally define their relationship and how it relates to the game at large. True love and masterminded battles to the death rarely mix, just ask Peeta and Katniss. Just like any good story, Arisu will have to reach rock bottom before he can triumph again. If Season 2 follows the manga, this means he'll completely stop competing in games altogether because of another loss of someone close to him. Sorry, Tatta. Your sweet mechanic smile is not long for this world.
In the manga, the first face card the ex-beach crew (and a somewhat-redeemed Nigari) take on is the King of Clubs, a tactical points-based battle game. It's team-based, so all five take on five residents of Borderland, associates of the King of Clubs himself. All seems to be going according to plan until a surprise tactic almost dooms the players to death. Fortunately, Tatta had a plan - slice off his hand so Arisu could take his point-tracking bracelet and win the game. It works, but not without a price. Tatta bleeds out, sending Arisu into yet another survivor's guilt spiral. Season 1 exposed the "Game Master" to be Mira, an executive of the Beach. If Season 2 is anything like the manga, that won't be the last we see of her. Mira is actually the Queen of Hearts, and poses as the last obstacle between Arisu and collecting all the cards needed to secure a spot in the real world.
The game is simple - play three rounds of croquet with Mira without forfeiting. It doesn't matter who wins, as long as three rounds played. But this is a hearts game, so there's a terrifying psychological twist. Arisu goes into the final game with only one agenda - answers. He asks Mira what the Borderland is on a number of occasions. First, she says it's a virtual reality resort for an ultra-advanced human race who has learned to live in complete perfection but crave suffering. The prize for winning is being able to stay longer and design more games. Then, she says that's a lie. Next, she says it's all a hallucination caused by the trauma of seeing his friends get run over by a train after hanging out with his friends they day they were sent to the Borderland. He couldn't accept the fact he couldn't help them, so he manufactured this entire world to cope.
Mira is actually his psychiatrist. It's at this point Arisu realizes only one part of this is actually true - he's been drugged. After a fight for sanity, Arisu manages to win the game, meaning all players are given the choice between staying in the game for eternity, or leaving for the real world. All players in the Borderland were victims of a meteorite attack on Tokyo. Yep, every single one of the characters we know and love were somehow injured by chunks of space rock. Those who opted to return were told their hearts stopped for an entire minute, meaning the entire timespan in the Borderland lasted only a minute of real-time. Will the Netflix series stick with this explanation? If not, they've got two alternate plot twists already baked in. Thankfully, we will eventually find out - Alice in Borderland has already been renewed for a second season.
Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings.
Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.
That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather.
She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.
39;s birthday was near and planned to celebrate it.
When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.
They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks.
When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.
That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
