Thank youHi @DynastyCarrington, welcome to SoapChat. I too think S2 will not be an immediate continuation from S1’s final cliffhanger. Because of the recent wedding and pregnancy stories, I've felt all along that the character of Steven would not be killed off & not severely injured.
The snippets link you posted has already been posted here http://soapchat.net/threads/spoiler-huge-season-2-spoiler-read-at-own-risk.5272/page-4 and commented on. I agree with @Daniel Avery , who wrote: “This sounds like a plot outline for a multi-episode story arc.” Yes, not for a single episode.
I’m hesitant to fully trust the info in the article, considering the clickbait title & also that DarkUFO gives the source for the article as SpoilerTV itself. Ideas are often floated and trickled out, then dropped. Even if a scene is filmed, it may not be used.
If the writers are ruining their own show, then it’s with the showrunners’ blessings. I like to think that the showrunners have things under control. So long as what they do entertains, I'll watch. I'm just curious about the newcomers, their characters. I'm not invested in their story arcs. But that's just me.
I'll definitely check out that chat as well. And I agree, all those plots don't seem to be just for the first episode - It's a lot to take in, especially after a huge cliffhanger and entrance of new characters.
