Resident Alien Season 2 Plot
Let us first take a sneak peek into the events of season 1 before getting into the prospective plot of the second season.
The first season of the series follows Alan Tudyk, who is the titular alien who crashes landed on the Earth. He is sent to destroy humanity and take over the personality of a pathology physician named Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle after killing him.
He was asked to do an autopsy on a doctor of the town but eventually, the doctor passed away due to some other mysterious reasons. After spending quite some time on Earth, Alien struggles with moral confusion, if he is here for the right mission he doubts the same. HE learns many new things by living with humans and consequently he is fascinated by them. He is also concerned about the fact that a 9-year-old young boy can see him as an alien.
At the cliffhanger at end of the season 1, we see that the actual Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle killed Dr. Sam Hodges which means the Sheriff took off the wrong person in custody. We can expect season 2 to solve this mystery and continue the same storyline to untangle every question.
Another thing that needs resolution is how come Harry can turn back now when he has Max as a stowaway though we saw that for the meantime their conflict is resolved but this is yet to see what will be the effect of this in their relationship and for that, we will have to wait for season 2.
