Netflix’s latest drama is an intriguing family saga that asks: what if your mother isn’t who you think she is? The eight-episode show is based on author Karin Slaughter’s 2018 novel of the same name, and it follows Andy (Fifty Shades Darker’s Bella Heathcote), a devoted daughter who discovers that her mother Laura (Hereditary’s Toni Collette) has combat skills when she takes down an armed man at the local diner.
When mystery men pursue both ladies, Andy must piece together her mother’s and her own histories while avoiding the goons.
What happened at the end of Season 1 of ‘Pieces of Her’?
There are spoilers for Season 1 of Pieces of Her ahead. Laura Oliver (Collette) is revealed to be Jane Queller, a former concert pianist who fell in love with a cult leader named Nick throughout the course of the season. Jane received witness protection in exchange for ratting out the cult and Nick, Andy’s father after one of the cult’s schemes went bad and her father was shot.
The women meet Nick in the last episode, who is hunting for money and a tape Laura has retained that could expose her brother Jasper, who was also involved in their father’s murder by accident. Andy and Laura end up eluding Nick and burning down the cabin, ostensibly destroying the tape and the money (about $200k). Nick gets apprehended by the FBI, and we don’t see him again.
While we assumed Nick and Jasper were to blame for Martin Queller’s death, Andy discovers that it was actually her mother who was to blame. After the millionaire attempted to terminate her pregnancy, then Jane, now-Laura, engineered her father’s death. And, thanks to a bug on Andy’s phone, Jasper now considers Laura responsible for Martin’s death and blackmails her, trapping her and Andy in the corruption that the elder had escaped so long ago.
Is there a chance that ‘Pieces of Her’ may return for a second season?
Netflix hasn’t said anything about season 2 yet, which isn’t surprising. Even when the show is a great hit, the streaming giant takes its time announcing renewals. While Pieces of Her hasn’t quite reached the heights of Bridgerton or Squid Game, it has racked up 53 million hours of viewing time worldwide.
The production has most likely been planning for a prospective prolongation based on the differences between the book and show endings.
Season 2 of ‘Pieces of Her’ could be about anything.
The Netflix program is set in the same time period as Slaughter’s source novel and follows a similar plot, although the two have radically different endings. The book concludes with a standoff between Nick and Laura, in which Laura wears a wire and convinces Nick to testify against himself, resulting in the cult leader’s arrest and Laura and Andy returning to their lives.
With Nick’s fate up in the air and Jasper blackmailing Laura, the show’s ending leaves a lot of room for the tale to go beyond the source novel.
What did the actors and crew of ‘Pieces of Her’ have to say about season 2?
While the majority of the cast seems to be avoiding discussing Season 2, a few individuals have shown interest in seeing what their characters do next. Heathcote told PopSugar that now that she knows the truth about Laura, she wants to investigate Andy’s new relationship with her mother. “I don’t believe [season 2] would be improbable,” Collette, her TV mother, remarked.
The point is, by the end of the novel, Laura has finally found some freedom to be herself, and then she receives that call, and everything is ripped away from her. It’s a very brief period of liberty. I’m curious to see what happens there and how she regains the freedom she had for three hours before it was taken away.”
“You’re just seeing the beginning of Mike Vargas,” Jacob Scipio, who plays Andy’s love interest, U.S. Michael Vargas, told the site. He’s off to DC at the end, and he’s like a dog with a bone. If he detects any kind of impropriety, wrongdoings, or jiggery-pokery, he’ll want to investigate. Vargas is a Spanish word that means steep slope,’ and that’s pretty much how he’s lived his life.
Either he’s on a long, difficult trek up or he’s tumbling down. In any case, there’s no hint of a peak. He’s prepared for the fight because his life is a struggle.” Andy and Michael’s will-they-won’t-they status was also revealed by the actor. “It’s a complex relationship between them. They’re really involved in the process “Scipio declares.” When people go through a traumatic experience together, they form an unshakable link that will endure a lifetime – regardless of the pathways they take, whether divergent or united.”
