Netflix recently gifted viewers with a second season of “The OA,” more than two years after it originally aired. Fans of “The OA” must be rejoicing to learn what happened after the abrupt and disjointed finale at the end of season one.
A quick recap of season one; Prairie Johnson returns home seven years after her disappearance, but the circumstances of her homecoming leave many scratching their heads over her story. Prairie who was blind, can see and shares a ludicrous sounding story about being held captive underground for seven years while a man repeatedly killed her and her fellow captees to study near death experiences. It was in her prison that she gained her new name, the OA (the original angel) and a strange understanding of the universe. Prairie shares her story with the teens in the neighborhood and teaches them the movements she claims will heal a dying person, movements the kids do to distract a school shooter in their cafeteria when Prairie is tragically shot.
