How Many Episodes of ‘Raising Dion’ Season 2?
Is Mark Still Alive?
Michael B. Jordan plays the role of Mark Warren in Raising Dion; his presence brings a level of reassurance to Dion and Nicole’s story. At the end of Season 1, Mark’s words were – “Energy Never Dies” – viewers expecting that Raising Dion Season 2 would see Dion searching to bring his father back to the real world in his human form. But Unfortunately, Jordan does not replay his role in the second season. His absence is disappointing because the Season 1 ending sets us up to believe that he is still alive somewhere.
In reality, Mark did not die. He was absorbed by the Crooked Man. He is still alive in the form of energy but has no physical existence. Mark appears during the final fight just before the Crooked Man disappears, and reminds Dion that energy can neither be created nor be smashed.
How did Pat survive?
Season 2 presents an unexpected surprise, Pat returns, alive and healthy! This is after we all saw him evaporate into the atmosphere. So, how is he still alive? What happens with him? End of Season 1 the Crooked Man saved his electrifying during an encounter with Dion at the end of Season 1. He practically decomposes into thin air after Nicole uses a lightning rod to save channel Dion’s energy into his heart.
So how does he re-materialize in a field a day after the fight, suddenly stripped of his powers? While we can’t exactly know for sure how Pat survives, it seems a reasonable assumption that he must have been saved by the Crooked Man energy the process somehow separating the energy from his body.
How to judge the meaning of the End-Credits Scene?
In the ending scene, we see some time in the future, with Pat at the head of a masked, black-clothed army as they walk through the remains of a burning city. It seems like Pat may have taken David’s (Ventura) offer to help him build an army of super-villains. Pat tells his soldiers that it’s time to, “finish this,” but before they do anything, an adult superhero in a cape appears from the sky lands in front of them. Pat realizes at that moment, who he’s dealing with, has Dion’s father’s watch fixed in one of his arms and introduces himself as the Mind Mover, and the screen cuts to black.
