So that you watched Netflix’s final Wednesday Wednesday, A present about Wednesday Addams, the teenage daughter of the Addams household.
Wednesday (the gig, not the lady) Wednesday (the lady, not the gig) hustled off to a cool goth boarding college, the place she received concerned with “The Wanderers” a number of plot. From an historical homicide involving her dad and mom to some weird deaths across the small city of Jericho, Vermont, from love triangles and highschool cliques to the strain between “outcasts” and “regular folks,” Wednesday (The present, not the ladies) packs quite a bit into the eight-episode first season.
Solely a handful of unanswered questions, and the unanswered questions of a possible second season delay, make sense.
[Ed. note: This post contains major spoilers for Netflix’s Wednesday.]
Why do not Morticia and Wednesday get alongside?
from that second on Wednesday To start, we be taught that Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) and her mom Morticia (Catherine Zeta-Jones) are no get alongside. This appears to boil all the way down to easy teenage insurrection. Wednesday would not need to be like her mother! However there’s additionally a little bit of built-in misogyny — Wednesday would not need to be like her mother, who’s a mom and homemaker who loves her husband a lot. Like, in the event you assume goth queen Morticia Adams is the epitome of conventional femininity, I’ve a number of questions for you.
By midseason, Morticia and Wednesday had reached a shaky, tentative settlement. However their damaged relationship is without doubt one of the many plot factors handled in season one, not least as a result of it additionally pertains to the homicide thriller that Morticia and Gomez have been concerned in as youngsters.
What was the cult that Bianca’s mother belonged to?
One of many coolest characters, each from an aesthetic standpoint and a world-building standpoint, is Bianca, the siren performed by Pleasure Sunday. She’s the varsity’s queen bee and fencing champion, and he or she has actually cool white and blue glowing eyes. Additionally, we discover out that sirens can pressure folks to do what they need, although this is not actually explored (because the present explores quite a bit). All we learn about Bianca’s siren powers is that her ex-boyfriend Xavier (Percy Hines White) thinks she used them on him.
We additionally be taught that Bianca ran away from dwelling as a result of her mother married a cult chief who wished to make use of their siren powers to indoctrinate extra members. The cult pretends to be a self-help app, nevertheless it’s truly designed to rip-off folks out of their cash. Bianca managed to persuade her mother to let her end the varsity yr first. This solely actually seems in a single episode, nevertheless it’s such a wealthy plot level that we’ll positively see it in a hypothetical season 2. You’ll be able to’t simply point out a cult masquerading as a self-help app after which sweep it beneath the rug!
Who’s Xavier’s father?
Bianca’s ex-boyfriend and one of many focal factors of Wednesday’s love triangle is tortured artist Xavier Thorpe, whose energy lies in bringing his work to life.His father, a well-known stage magician and psychic, appears to have a number of Dad Questions™. He would not like being in comparison with his dad, however he additionally talks about his dad quite a bit. Given Papa Thorpe’s fame, it is possible he’ll truly make an look sooner or later.
Will Taylor come again?
Talking of affection triangles, different Love, that smooth boy barista Tyler (Hunter Doohan) – objectively higher love – seems to be truly a murderous creature generally known as Hyde! Because the Hyde household, Taylor is accountable for all of the mysterious deaths on the town! Now, he is technically managed and utilized by Marilyn Thornhill (Christina Ricci), descendant of the fanatical Pilgrims who based the city of Jericho and wished to kill Kill all strays. So…does Taylor have any benefit, or is he fully brainwashed?
The final time we noticed him, he was in a psychological hospital. So he did not die. However had his emotions for Wednesday been a lie from the beginning? As a result of they’re actually cute! Additionally, will we be taught extra about his mysterious mom? Talking of Taylor, there are such a lot of unanswered questions, it will be a disgrace to maintain him hidden.
Who’s following Wednesday?
Within the closing scene of the primary season, Wednesday opened a mysterious envelope stuffed with photoshoots of her. It was left by somebody who was nonetheless on the market, who may nonetheless take photos of her on the final day of college (all of them needed to go dwelling as a result of #tragedy occurred), and had a bizarre hatred for her. Is it somebody we all know from the present, or is it a brand new character? We’ll have to attend to search out out.
What precisely is Gomez’s outcast skill?
So, all the scholars at Nevermore Academy are outcasts, and we all know that as a result of Marilyn Thornhill being the primary regular within the hallowed halls of the varsity is a giant deal. Most wanderers have fallen for acquainted fantasy creatures, reminiscent of werewolves and vampires. Until they’ve extra powers like Wednesday and Morticia’s psychic talents or Xavier’s paintings.
As a former scholar of Nevermore, Gomez (Luis Guzman) should possess some type of energy. However we by no means know what it’s! Would possibly must discover a couple of issues. The Addams household itself would not truly make an look on the present, so there’s a lot to dig into later.
What was Edgar Allan Poe’s outcast skill?
One in every of Nevermore’s most well-known alumni is creator Edgar Allan Poe. And since all of Nevermore’s college students and alumni are outcasts, meaning Poe completely has energy. I need to know extra.
What makes an outcast?
good query! Regardless of specializing in the strain between normalcy and the Rangers all season lengthy, we by no means actually discover out. Are they simply magical beings? However what about Wednesday, who did not inform anybody she had superpowers when she enrolled? Do you need to be wearing black to be creepy? What in regards to the courageous werewolf Enid (Emma Myers)? She loves all issues pink and glitter?what Sure customary?
It is one factor to maintain college revelers deliberately ambiguous, however when the entire plot hinges on what’s regular and what’s an outcast, it makes much more sense to make these definitions clear.
What does the remainder of the world take into consideration issues like werewolves and vampires?
Is Jericho the one city that hates homeless? Xavier’s father was a well-known magician, so there have to be individuals who like outcasts. Let’s examine how far this bias extends.
The place does the Addams household reside?
I am asking this principally as a result of in Broadway musicals, they sometimes dab in the midst of Central Park, and I simply thought it will be fairly humorous in the event that they saved it that manner.
