It has been a long time coming, but the latest episode of See finally reunited Baba Voss, Haniwa, Kofun, and Maghra. “The Dinner Party” was an unusually and effectively chatty episode of the show, but everything about it implied that See season 2, episode 6, titled “The Truth About Unicorns”, would be much more of a return to the usual fare. There’s a war on the horizon, after all, and it seems nearer than ever. Here’s where we left things:
- Baba Voss, Paris, Haniwa, Kofun, and Charlotte arrived at Pennsa. Bab was, understandably, not too keen on Lord Harlan or any of Queen Kane’s posturing, but he eventually came to understand the political importance of the union.
- Maghra convinced Queen Kane to allow her to try and broker peace between Pennsa and Trivantes, which everyone except her agrees is a terrible idea.
- Tamacti Jun recruits Toad and some of the other Witchfinders still loyal to him with the intention of overthrowing Queen Kane.
- Queen Kane has plans of her own, which include seducing Kofun and isolating him from the rest of his family.
- Lord Harlan’s brother, Kerrigan, was discovered on his mission, and his severed head was sent back to Pennsa as a message to Harlan.
See season 2, episode 6 release date
“The Truth About Unicorns” is set to release on October 1, 2021, at 12 a.m. ET on Apple TV+.
Where to watch online
As stated above, See is available to watch exclusively on Apple TV+, which requires a subscription.
Predictions and potential spoilers
There’s obviously a pretty clear direction that the show is heading in at this point — straight towards a war between the Trivantians and Pennsa. This seems pretty inevitable to me, but it’s all about how we get there, so let’s try and figure out how that might be.
- So, I think we can expect Maghra to try and broker peace in “The Truth About Unicorns”, and I think we can expect it not to go well. The precise manner in which it goes wrong, however, remains to be seen.
- I really think we’ve reached the point where Wren is going to factor back into the story in a meaningful way. Her loyalty is, one assumes, going to be to Haniwa over Trivantes, especially if her sight is discovered, so bringing her back now would allow time for that arc to play out.
- Harlan is surely not going to be rational following Kerrigan’s death, and one imagines that his state of mind and meddling will be the root cause of the negotiations breaking down.
- What are the kids up to? Kofun will presumably fall deeper under Queen Kane’s sway. With Haniwa it’s hard to say, but we can be pretty sure she won’t sit on the sidelines. Will her presence and/or interference be a help or a hindrance, though? Time will tell.
