Expectations from the series
The climatic end of the first season of Warrior Nun has left the fans to dribble off with kick-ass action.
The order of the Cruciform Sword’s true purpose was revealed, for Adriel, it was nothing more than a puppet against the force of heaven. Ava has revealed his true identity after he touches her. He was being mistaken for an angel by the original knights of the order after he has successfully killed a Tarask monster that followed him out of a demonic portal.
Adriel was hidden in the tombs of the Vatican, he has also hidden the halo inside the original Warrior Nun, and by creating the Order, gave him protection from Heaven.
After escaping from the tomb, the halo from the order was recaptured was by Adriel and proceed with his nefarious plans.
Despite her gusto, Shotgun was impressed by the possessed forces of Adrial, leaving Ava and the other sisters to take on Adrial his small army of Wraith Demons.
In the next season, we will see Ava and the Order bringing the fight to Adriel. The devil will also be revealing himself to the world instead of standing alone, the forces of heaven may descend upon the Vatican and give assistance to the Order.
Simon Barry also teased some other things that we can expect from season 2 in an interview with Looper saying:
“Well, I guess we were holding back so many secrets in a way in season one. The fact that we now have the cat is out of the bag, so to speak, in terms of the mythology of the show. I think it’ll be really exciting to take that journey and unpack what we’ve revealed.
The appearance of Adriel, the relationship with Father Vincent, and also as the stakes have changed for Ava and the other sister warriors. For me, it really is building on what we did well in season one — and hopefully doing a better job at season 2, if we get it.”
