A Recap of Raising Dion Season 2
Raising Dion Season 2 begins two years after the end of its debut season when the Crooked Man had taken over Pat, and the mother-son duo had defeated him.
Two years on, Nicole and Dion are trying to live life afresh without Mark, as Dion continues to gain more and more control of his powers. He forms a Triangle of Justice with his friends Jonathan and Esperanza to protect the neighbourhood.
To master his superpowers, Dion also starts attending training sessions at the BIONA facility, where Dixon’s trainer is Tevin. Tevin possesses the power to create force fields. Nicole, who is very much protective of Dion, is quite wary of Tevin at first but gradually starts trusting him.
At BIONA, a teenager named Janelle, who is unable to control her powers, is going through a rigorous training process. Nicole befriends her mother, Simone.
Elsewhere, we find that the Crooked Energy, who has left Pat’s body, has taken young Brayden as its new host. Brayden has also received his superpowers from his father, who was present during the aurora event in Iceland. Brayden now heads for Dion’s hometown Atlanta, where he befriends Dion.
Pat, now in his human form, claiming to be stripped of all his powers, returns to the facility, saying that he wants now to help defeat the Crooked Man. Unable to trust him, Suzanne locks him up.
Suzanne has tracked a series of sinkholes that have sprung up across the country. David, who is an assistant to Suzanne, takes Pat’s help in investigating the holes, which react to Crooked Energy that still remains within him.
Nicole and Suzanne discover that the sinkholes are harvesting and amplifying the Crooked Energy to turn humans into monsters. Meanwhile, the Crooked Energy compels Brayden to fight with Dion. Brayden, however, is defeated by the Triangle of Justice.
Meanwhile, Nicole gets infected by the parasites released from the sinkhole and faces a sure death unless an antidote is discovered.
Raising Dion Season 2 Ending Explained
The ending of Raising Dion Season 2 shows Brayden, fuelled by hatred within him, unleashing a full-on war on Dion and his friends. Dion, along with Nicole, Tevin and Janelle, tries to control the monsters.
Nicole tries to appeal to Brayden’s humane side, which makes him realise that his family would have wanted him to use his superpowers for the welfare of humankind. He dispels the Crooked Energy from his body, sending it back into the sinkhole.
Dion uses the antidote created by Pat to destroy the Crooked Energy inside the sinkhole, reverting the monsters back into humans. The antidote saves Nicole’s life as well. Nicole, realising that Dion is destined to save humanity, finally allows him to tread on this dangerous path of the saviour of humankind.
Meanwhile, while developing the antidote, Pat suffers from an overdose of P-DNA and seemingly dies. However, it turns out that he has emerged more powerful and dangerous because of it. He breaks out of his confinement and threatens to kill Suzanne.
The post-credit scene of Raising Dion Season 2, set in the future, shows Pat dressed menacingly in a black suit, trying to destroy Atlanta. He does it with his army of superpowered humans and an older Dion trying to stop him.
Dion’s father, Mark, had taught him that energy could neither be created nor destroyed and can only change from one form to another. It is the reason why Crooked Energy keeps changing its form as the struggle between good and evil goes on.
