The Duke of Death and His Maid Season 2 Plot
Before getting into the prospective synopsis of the second season let’s take a quick recap on the ending of season one.
In the final episode of the first season, it was seen that after all the hurdles and being banished to the mansion to live alone, Duke finally gets to spend some really gala time with his family at the family palace. He walks to the garden where he got this terrible curse years ago by the witch, Sade. While he was talking with his mother, she provides him with a final opportunity to get rid of the curse or else she will make his brother Walter the legal heir, she is left with no option after considering the illness of Duke’s Father.
Bachchan takes advantage of the opportunity, he confesses his love for Alice and declares that he wants to tie the knot with her but her mother doesn’t approve of her following which he gets outraged. After all, these also promised Alice that whatever happens, he will marry her even after his mother’s unwillingness towards his decision.
After watching the end of season one, we expect in season 2, Duke will be exploring the ways to get rid of the curse. On the other hand, now when Walter learns that he can become the heir, he may seem to plan something to pressure Bocchan to waive his position. We will see Duke and Alice getting closer, Cuff and Zain know very much about the curses and in the end, the duo may come together and play an important role to find the cure.
