‘The Order’ Season 2: Will Lilith’s Past Be Explored on the Netflix Series?
One of the biggest story developments in season 1 of The Order on Netflix was the fact that Lilith Bathory was a double agent and didn’t even know it. The character, a member of the Knights of Saint Christopher, is also connected to The Order.
She is the second character, other than the main protagonist, Jack Morton, who has dual things going on. With the show’s second season coming up soon, many fans are wondering if the show will dive into more of Lilith’s time with The Order or not.
‘The Order’ ended its first season on a shocking cliffhanger
Through most of the season finale, it looked like the first season of The Order would end with Edward Coventry defeated and the world getting a sense of normalcy.
However, this all changed when the members of The Order, in an effort to protect their secrecy, used their white memory loss powder on the Knights of Saint Christopher. This not only wiped the werewolves’ memory of the recent events but even things that they know about themselves. Going into season 2, it looks like the primary plot, at least for the beginning, will be the Knights trying to get their memories back. But this only seems to be the tip of the iceberg for this season’s action.
The official season 2 description from Netflix reads:
In season two, the lines between good and evil are more obscure than ever. The Knights struggle to regain their memories stolen from them by The Order and they crave retribution. But vengeance is hard to plan when you’re also fighting murderous magicians, strange cults and life-threatening demons. Does anyone even go to class anymore?
Season 2 could possibly revisit Lilith’s time as a member of The Order
In an interview at San Diego Comic-Con, shortly after Netflix renewed the show for season 2, Devery Jacobs, who portrays Lilith talked about what to expect in the new season in regards to her character.
Another big plot twist in season 2 was the fact that Lilith was initially a member of The Order. For reasons not yet known to the Knights (or the audience), she was booted from the group and had her memory wiped.
“We found [she] was a former member of The Order,” Jacobs told Tell-Tale TV. “So [she] was both a magic practitioner and a werewolf that fights bad magic. So Lilith has a chip on her shoulder and something to prove, and is kind of a hyper feminist who is a badass, I would like to say.”
According to Jacobs, hints about Lilith’s past were sprinkled through the first season of the show. And though she didn’t confirm Lilith’s time in The Order would be a part of season 2, she didn’t rule it out. “Throughout [The Order] Season 1, Lilith always had an issue and a funny taste in her mouth around the order, and she wasn’t entirely sure why,” she said. “Until we found out that later on in the season that it was actually because she had been powdered before, that was she was a member, and that she was expelled for reasons we don’t know yet that we may find out in Season 2.”
The Order season 2 premieres in June on Netflix.
