Something important that occurred to me regarding what is coming. I think the writers are trying to create an structure similar to season 1, and parallel the journey Kat and Kadena had then to the one they are having now.
It doesn’t match up exactly, but look at it. (some mild spoilers and speculation)
Season 1 – Kat and Adena meet, have a minor disagreement/tension, work through it and become closer.
Season 2 – They are together,
have a minor disagreement/tension, work through it and become closer.
Season 1 – Kat discovers stuff about herself and comes to terms with it (that she likes a woman). Adena and Kat become closer.
Season 2 –
Kat discovers stuff about herself and comes to terms with it (her reluctance to use labels and bring up her race).
Adena and Kat become closer.
Season 1 – There’s tension between Kat and Adena that leads to a declaration of love.
Season 2 –
There’s tension between Kat and Adena that leads to a declaration of love.
Season 1 – The start of conflict between the ship that will affect them for episodes to come. Episode ends in an angsty cliffhanger.
Season 2 –
The start of conflict between the ship that will affect them for episodes to come. Episode ends in a (angsty?) cliffhanger.
Season 1 – As a consequence of what happens on episode 5 Kat and Adena find themselves in a complicated situation with each other.
Season 2 – ? We don’t know yet, but based on the promos Kadena will have to deal with stuff set in motion on episode 5 and that may put them in a complicated situation with each other.
Season 1 – They are still suffering the consequences of their decisions on the previous episodes.
Season 2 – ? We don’t know yet, but by the episode synopsis this episode will bring a resolution to that 3 episode arc.
Season 1 – The start of them coming back together. They take a decision that affects their relationship and sets in motion the arc for the last 3 episode of the season.
Season 2 – ?
Season 1 – Kadena filled episode that strengthens their relationship.
Season 2 -? We know this is the road trip episode with the 3 girls, so I think we may not have much Kadena, or at all. I think the Kadena heavy episode will be moved to the season finale in season 2.
Season 1 – Kat makes a decision that leads her to be with Adena and sets things up for them to be together in Season 2.
Season 2 -? We know this is the finale, that they are in Paris and Adena is on it. I think it will be a Kadena heavy, instead of episode 9, and we will have important Kadena moments setting up their future looking into season 3.
This all to say again, that I think their relationship will only be stronger after episode 7/8 and then we are in for an emotional filled Season finale full of Kadena.
