Expected Plot in Ratched Season 2
In season 1, Mildred Ratched gets herself employed in the Lucia State Hospital to work with Dr. Richard Hanover through her twisted ways and blackmailing a nurse after she acknowledges that her brother Edmund Tolleson will be admitted to the mental facility after his gruesome killing spree of four priests one who was his father.
Mildred talks to father Andrews, the survivor and the witness of the murders committed by his brother. She makes him believe that she will be interviewing him on behalf of Dr. Hanover but rather she sedates him and performs the ice pick lobotomy after she reveals her relationship with Edmund Tolleson. The procedure puts father Andrews in a state of catatonia. This was the first attempt she made to save her brother.
Mildred comes to know of nurse Dolly and Edmunds’s relation. Later Edmund escapes during a dance party killing a guard and shooting Gwen while escaping from the hospital. Eventually arrested, Edmund is scheduled to be executed on the electric chair. Mildred wants her brother’s death to be painless and humane and tries to euthanize him herself. The plan however does not gets successful and Edmund comes to know about her sister’s plan turning him against her. He and Charlotte escape the facility. Moving three years fast forward, the last episode shows how Edmund tracks down Mildred and threatens to kill her, Gwendolyn, and Bucket. Mildred tells him she’ll kill him before that happens.
In Ratched season 2, we are expected the siblings to meet again. This time around, the prime antagonist will be Edmund. Also, he may harm Gwendolyn, Ratched’s love interest again pushing Mildred to become even cold and dark person.
