Earlier this year I watched the first season of Netflix’s reboot of the old She-Ra show. I didn’t know all these years, but She-Ra was He-Man’s sister, and I do remember watching that show and the movie as a kid, but I forgot a lot about it. But the Netflix show looked promising and it was pretty good. So I decided to watch the 2nd season.
Not much time has passed since the events of the last season. The rebellion thought they had lost Entrapta to the Horde and she had perished under their imprisonment. But strangely enough, she allied with the Horde in the name of science, rather than politics. Lord Hordak wants to use the First Ones tech to crush the rebellion, and Entrapta is one of the few people on the planet that knows how to work with it.
Adora on the other hand is mostly working on her training. She still hasn’t mastered being She-Ra but she’ll get some new powers and challenges on the way. The rest of the Princesses are still allied with the rebellion, but it will mostly be Glimmer and Bow that will work against the Horde in any real battles coming up.
Speaking of the Horde, Catra has taken Shadow Weaver’s place as Force Captain. While she is thrilled at her new job, she is terrified of failing. She knows what happened to Shadow Weaver can easily happen to her. While she has the support of Scorpia and some other underlings, she isn’t too far away from not just a demotion but a termination…from life.
Overall the 2nd season is weaker than the first. Mainly because they split the new season into two mini-seasons. I thought it was weird Netflix had season three so soon, because both 2 and 3 together are about as long as the first season. So while it has some good episodes, I can see that season three will have the more dramatic stories. So I will be starting that season soon enough.
