Alice in Borderland season 2 ending explained
The stakes were never higher for Arisu and the others when the final game began. Arisu was the only one fit to take on the final game, but he was able to drag Usagi inside to help him out.
the final game against the Queen of Hearts, Mira, was croquet. However, during the game, she spends most of her time trying to manipulate the pair, almost convincing Arisu that the entire world is her illusion. It’s thanks to Usagi that she stops Arisu from giving in, and in the process, the pair finally reveal their feelings for each other.
Mira wins the croquet game, but Arisu ultimately wins after learning that all she had to do was not lose the game. With all the figures defeated, Mira is annihilated by the sky laser and all players are faced with the choice of returning to the real world or accepting life in Borderland. All the players except Banda and Yaba decide to leave.
All the players wake up to find that they are in the hospital where Arisu learns that a meteor destroyed a large part of Tokyo, and everyone who had not died was sent to the Borderlands. Sadly, neither player remembers their shared Borderlands experience, but this doesn’t stop Arisu and Usagi from finding each other in the hospital.
However, all may not be as it seems, as the camera pans across the hospital grounds, showing a table full of playing cards flying through the air, except for the joker.
what to expect from alice on the border season 3?
Yes alice on the border was set to return for a third season, there is an extremely limited amount of source material to work with. This means there could be some significant deviations and a new season would result in a lot of original material from the writers.
The Joker card shown at the end of the series heavily alluded to the Joker character, who is in the manga series, but has yet to be revealed in the television adaptation.
