The fans of the hit series Netflix 2016 L & # 39; OA, rejoice, the first trailer of Part II has just fallen. Be forewarned: he's pretty spoiler for those who have not already seen Part I. Again, there are probably some people who are still puzzled over what exactly happened in part I of this show that breaks the genre – is it science fiction? ? Fancy? A supernatural drama? So maybe a recycling would be welcome.
(Warning: Major spoilers for season 1 of L & # 39; OA below.)
The first part was opened by a young adoptive woman, Prairie Johnson (Brit Marling), who miraculously returned home after seven years of disappearance. Her adoptive parents are delighted and puzzled, not just about where she's been since all this time, but also because their once-blind daughter can see. Prairie befriends several unsuited local high school students: four boys (Steve, French, Buck and Jesse) and a teacher, Betty Broderick-Allen (Phyllis Smith), nicknamed "BBA". During the rest of the season, she tells them her story, starting with an imminent death experience when she was small, the same accident that left her blind.
Meadow tells them that she had disappeared all these years because she was held in captivity with four other people by a man named Hap Percy (Jason Isaacs), obsessed with the NDEs. He drugged them regularly and performed strange experiments, hoping to trigger more EMN than he thought was the proof of another parallel dimension. He was convinced that if five strong people performed a secret series of "five movements", it would be possible to travel in this dimension. Forced NDEs were his way of determining what these movements were.
Prairie told her band of marginals that she escaped by this means, suggesting that she was being held in a parallel dimension. She asks for their help to save the other four. Enchanted by his story, they agree to learn the moves. Over time, questions arise as to whether Prairie is telling the truth, lying or just delusional, especially when she insists that she's "OA" (for "Original Angel") . The series ends ambiguously, the unsuitable running the five moves to distract the attention of a school shooter in the cafeteria and Prairie may be hit by a stray bullet before losing his life ( maybe even die).
L & # 39; OA When it came out, it aroused a lot of excitement, with people sharing their admiration for their stunning graphics and powerful performance, and their frustration at the sometimes overflowing dialogue and the increasingly strange premises. Count me among those who have mixed feelings about the series. I was inevitably attracted to the story; Apparently, co-creators Marling and Mal Batmangli have told the story aloud while developing the series to get that seductive flow, and congratulate him. But I was also frustrated by the heavy tone and I was not happy with the end.
"Do you understand what we are on the edge of here? It's like God."
I suspect that I might have similar shared feelings about Part II, based on the trailer. He picks up where Part I was, with Prairie waking up in a hospital. She can blink, figure out how many fingers the nurse is holding, and know that we are in 2016 (again), but when she says that Barack Obama is the president, the nurse does not. never heard of him. "I did it.I jumped," Prairie realizes. And his life in this new dimension promises to be stormy, with a luxurious carpet in the heart of San Francisco that should make the spectators of the Bay Area region blaze.
This is not perfect, however. Hap is here, to begin with, claiming that it's somehow not diabolical. "We have traveled to another dimension, in another version of ourselves," he told Prairie. "Do you understand what we are on the edge of here? It's like God." We have a glimpse of his friends of the original dimension, as well as other captives of Hap: Homer, Rachel, Scott and Renata.
There is also a handsome private investigator, Karim Washington, who is investigating the disappearance of a teenager, so that Hap could be able to prove himself again. And this teenager looks a lot like someone Prairie knew in Michigan, so she begins to suspect that everything is connected. Naturally, she is determined to get to the bottom of things. Maybe this time we will all have more satisfying answers.
The OA: Part II will be published on Netflix on March 22, 2019.
