Sky Rojo season 2 ending explained – do Coral and co. survive?
This article contains major spoilers for the Sky Rojo season 2 ending.
Don’t worry – Sky Rojo Season 2 doesn’t end on quite as massive a cliffhanger as the first season did. But that’s not to say the story is resolved. With a third season looking basically inevitable, let’s briefly take a look at where we end up and how we got there.
Picking up directly from the finale of the first season, Sky Rojo Season 2 opens with Coral (Veronica Sanchez) having defeated Romeo (Asier Etxeandia) thanks at least in part to his own cocaine. But it’s that same cocaine that prevents her from getting away with it, while Wendy (Lali Esposito) and Gina (Yany Prado) continue to be pursued by Christian (Enric Auquer) and eventually Moises (Miguel Angel Silvestre), who is freed by his brother from the shallow grave the girls left him in.
Eventually, of course, everyone reunites, and the narrative takes two parallel tracks. In the first, the girls plan to ruin Romeo by stealing his money, and in the second, Moises and Christian plan to rid themselves of his company and thus the various despicable things they have been complicit in while keeping it. Call me crazy, but I feel on some level we’re supposed to be rooting for Moises. We’re supposed to believe he can change, and perhaps that his brother can too, despite regular flashbacks depicting Christian as a maniac rapist monster. To try and keep Moises on-side, Romeo kidnaps his mother, while the girls plot their heist by roping an old client named Fermin into the scheme.
Sky Rojo Season 2 loves Wendy and particularly loves flashbacks detailing her various abuses at the club (Fermin himself being involved in them). When the girls reach a hotel, the manager drugs and tries to rape her, which feels a bit needless. The two groups are on something of a collision course since Moises and Christian are also trying to steal Romeo’s money to get their mother back, but Moises eventually finds himself a captive of Coral. When he breaks free, he hooks her left eye clean out of her head, but Wendy and Gina are able to rescue her and she remains bizarrely untroubled by the injury for the rest of the finale.
The only significant death in the Sky Rojo Season 2 ending is Christian’s – he’s left to bleed out by Romeo as a way to manipulate Moises into loyalty, convincing the bruiser that the girls killed his brother. It’s Moises who says that, even though they lost the battle, the war still rages on, which is why a third season seems likely despite the girls escaping on a ferry to start a new life. Moises and Romeo presumably won’t be far behind them.
