Light as a Feather Season 2, Episode 6, “Pale As Death” provides a reveal at the end, but it was not impactful enough to save a weak second installment.
This recap of Hulu’s Light as a Feather Season 2, Episode 6, “Pale As Death” contains significant spoilers. You can read the review of season 2 by clicking these words.
At the start of episode 6, Sammi decides to do something absurdly dumb. She decides to enter a store freezer to test out if McKenna’s (Liana Liberato) game is real, which foretold that she will freeze to death. I know this is how horror works, but what a ridiculous approach to the story to fill the first five minutes. She didn’t die because I presume the store heard her screaming.
Episode 6, “Pale As Death” has Trey overcaring for McKenna, staying at her house and guarding while she sleeps. He lies to Sammi about what he’s doing so he doesn’t hurt her feelings. He would choose McKenna in a heartbeat, but he’s playing happy homes with Sammi for now.
Violet (Haley Ramm) is now worried about the series of events unfolding; her feelings for Isaac is growing, but when he starts drawing people she recognizes that he would not have known, she’s beginning to wonder if his life is in danger. It turns out that Isaac played the game with McKenna as well, meaning he is at risk.
As for Alex (Brianne Tju) in episode 6, “Pale As Death” she is all loved up with her new girlfriend, and she initiates the second dumb moment of the chapter. Her distracted eyes mean McKenna manages to escape the house while sleepwalking, so the entire gang, including Sammi, go to look for her.
They finally find McKenna, and as Light as a Feather season 2, episode 6, “Pale As Death” ends, McKenna uses Violet’s key to open a box she has kept hidden, and I believe it reveals a very deceased body.
