Severance Season 2 Expected Storyline
The series revolves around Mark (portrayed by Scott) who works at Lumon Industries and agrees to a “severance” program under which his non-work memories are isolated from his work memories later, Mark, gradually unveils the web of conspiracy from both the ends of the division.
The second season of the series will probably be way more dramatic in comparison to the first one after watching the final episode of the first season that blew a huge hole in the lives of the Core Office Four.
For Helly, she has destroyed a huge business event that was supposed to be in favor of the severance medical procedure, finding her father Mr. Eagan playing a remarkable role at Lumon.
Irving may be heartbroken after finding that, in the outside world and unaware to both of them, Burt was happily married and also making plans about a new life following his retirement.
Mark anyhow informed his sister about everything that was going on with his “innie”, and prior to when his brain was swapped back into “outie” mode, conveyed to her the truth that his assumed-dead wife is still alive in reality, with an “innie” of her working at Lumon.
Ultimately, their future of Dylan was left in doubt following he sacrificed himself to stay in the office, holding open the switches that enabled the others to go from “outie” to “innie” mode.
With Milchek entering the room he was in the last moments of the series; it becomes quite apparent that he will possibly have some extremely cruel punishment in front of him. Which, as we have already seen, can be comparable to torture for the “innies” trapped in the office.
With Cobel getting uncontrollable after getting dismissed from her position as well, it looks like a battle between the innies and the outies is advancing really fast, as the innies attempt to release themselves from their continuous, 9 to 5 hell.
