What Could Happen In Whiskey Cavalier Season 2?
The first season saw secret agents Will Chase, played by Scott Foley, and Frankie Trowbridge, played by Lauren Cohan. Together, they lead an inter-agency team of amusing and brave spies who periodically save the world. They even save each other while navigating the hardships of friendship, romance, and office politics.
In the final episode of the season, the duo was forcefully sent on a mission to steal a laptop from the Russian finance minister. To enforce his edict, Ollerman (Dylan Walsh) activated a device in Paul (Joe Doyle) that had been secretly implanted. No more Paul.
A distraction was created, and the Ollerman exchanged affected on the Russian minister’s case. But Tina (Marika Dominczyk), Ollerman’s mole, had other ideas. She managed to lock up everyone in an anteroom while she headed out to execute the Russian, Kirlov. However, a chair spun around to reveal Standish (Tyler James Williams), who used his firearm to dispose of Tina.
Later, Susan (Ana Ortiz), Will, and Ray (Josh Hopkins) tried to locate Ollerman’s location, but Ollerman decided to end his own life. He falls through a damaged window and apparently killed himself. However, there was some unfinished business left. In the next morning, Frankie finds Will at a lookout. Their conversation, fueled by some sensuous pastry, turned intimate. But unfortunately, the scene suddenly changed to New York, where Standish (Tyler James Williams) leaves Will a voicemail message, telling him Tina was Emma’s killer. Meanwhile, Ollerman reprises back and stabs him, probably killed him.
Therefore, there is quite some possible range for the plot of Whiskey Cavalier Season 2. If the show revives for another run, the audience will see the fate of Will and Frankie along with the conclusion of Ollerman, maybe.
