Into The Night Season 2 Ending Explained: For the most part, “Asil” follows a similar structure to the rest of the season, with two distinct plot threads — what’s going on in the bunker and what’s happening aboard the plane as it approaches the Seed Vault runway.
It goes without saying that the two strands are interconnected in more ways than one, with short glimpses of a submersible serving as something of an electronic ticking clock gadget. Who is on board?
What exactly do they want? I can’t say that this finale provides definitive answers to those issues, but the fact that it raises them helps to keep the storey moving forward, even though there’s enough else to do in the meanwhile.
In any case, it is Horst who is the subject of the flashback at the beginning of the episode, and he proves to be rather handy throughout. After the Russians raid the bunker in revenge for their jets being destroyed, the gang is apprehended and imprisoned, along with a seriously injured Rik, who confessed to giving away their Norway plan out of the terror he has been plagued with his entire life until that point.
Nevertheless, it is Horst who successfully uses a blowtorch to assist them in cutting through the ductwork and escaping. This involves cutting the power and sneaking past a couple of guards in the dark, complete with first-person handheld camerawork to sell the tension, as well as stealing a Russian helicopter to help them flee the scene of the crime.
Meanwhile, at the Seed Vault, Gia is still trapped in the wrecked cockpit, and things aren’t looking good for anyone in the vicinity. Unfortunately, there are no tools nearby to repair the damage, which is still unknown in its full extent, and there isn’t enough time to go looking for them anyhow.
Given that they have no method to escape from the mysterious third party who bombed both bunkers, they will starve or freeze to death regardless of whether they are able to empty the bunker and bring in reinforcements.
Season 2 follows a similar narrative format in that it recounts the backstories of the passengers who were alive at the time of the plane’s departure. Zara Oblonskaya and her ill son, Dominik, are the protagonists of the storey. Zara revealed to Ayaz, a fellow passenger on Season 1, that she had come to Mexico for her son’s treatment before the tragedy struck the earth. Season 2 continues the storey.
In the current chronology, the passengers have spent nine days in the bunker, attempting to acclimatize to life underground with the military men, and they have made significant progress. They have altered their sleep cycles in response to the tragedy, waking up in the middle of the night and sleeping during the day. The people, the military, and the NATO ambassadors strive to come up with real solutions to keep the damaging sunlight at bay, but they come up empty-handed and frustrated.
