Here’s everything you need to know about the conclusion of ‘Carnivale Row season 2 episode 2.
Carnival Season 2 Episodes 1 and 2 Recap!
The second season of The Burgue begins after the murder of Absalom Breakspear, the chancellor of the Republic of the Burgue. New laws have been implemented, turning Carnival Row into an internment camp.
Vignette and Philo now live together and Vignette is part of the Black Ravens, a secret fae organization. Philo continues to look for his friend, Darius, who was imprisoned due to his wolf’s curse. Agreus and Imogen navigate through open water on a ship owned by the former, enjoying their moment of happiness.
Jonah and Sophie run the country as the Chancellor and Leader of the Opposition, but they have detractors who can’t wait to overthrow them.
Philo decides to announce that he is the former chancellor’s eldest son in front of the nobility at the banquet.
Meanwhile, Tourmaline starts to have visions about Aoife Tsigani, the late Haruspex (or witch), and discovers that she has inherited Aoife’s gifts.
Carnival Season 2 Episode 2 Ending: Who Kills Dahlia and Bolero?
The storylines in season 2 are more linked than in season 1.
Philo is taken to the human part of town near the end of the first episode and learns that he has been brought there at the request of Constable Berwick (Waj Ali), his former partner because an engineer from the train Vignette raided has been killed and suspended several meters above the ground with the flywire used to keep the faes in Carnival Row.
Berwick reveals that the Black Ravens are being investigated by the authorities since no human killer can take their victim that high. After Sergeant Dombey comes, Philo is forced to leave.
With Vignette’s growing popularity among the Black Ravens, Dahlia, their leader, becomes envious and presses herself on a scheme devised by Vignette, pushing the latter out of it.
Dahlia and other Black Ravens crash into the hall through the glass ceiling above as Jonah and Sophie host the Pact delegation, and just as Philo is about to reveal the truth about himself.
Dombey shoots and kills one of the afflicted as she approaches Jonah and Sophie. Meanwhile, as Philo walks away, he is unaware that General Mikulas Vir (Andrew Buchan) of the Pact delegation has noticed him.
Later that evening, the heads and wings of Dahlia and her second-in-command, Bolero (Anthony Kaye), are discovered mounted on the walls defining Carnival Row’s limits.
The faes believe the Burgue government is to blame because they witnessed police mounting the heads of religious extremists who, according to Jonah, murdered his parents on the same wall.
The murder of the human in episode 1 and those of Dahlia and Bolero are most likely linked. Tourmaline’s visions as the Haruspex’s powers materialize in her suggest as much.
With this in mind, we may conclude that neither the police nor the Night Ravens is to blame for the deaths, yet it is certain that the killer is a legendary creature because they can fly. It’s plausible that the true murderer is employing a Darkasher, as Piety did in season 1.
They intend to cause strife in Burgue society. It’s not Sophie either, at least not this time. As she rose to prominence through chaos, she is now a part of the order. One of the Pact’s warring groups is most likely responsible for these killings.
