Realizing that you have no idea the end of season 2 of my block? We have you

It’s almost there! Season 3 of the hit Netflix show On my block is coming out on March 11, and the recently launched trailer has sparked emotions and questions that we’ve been holding onto since the terrifying end of season two. As we look forward to the release of season three to answer all of our burning questions (including, but not limited to: are the kids alright? Who jumped out of this pickup? Will Jamal be able to never enjoy his RollerWorld money?), let’s take a look back at the explosive season two finale to review the major events that catapulted Freeridge’s friends into the dangerous situation in which we are sure to find them at the top of the season three.

The fate of Caesar is decided

Caesar’s journey through season two, as he struggled to find coherent shelter and security, left us wishing we could jump across the screen and help him more than once. Seeing a teenager sleeping in a car and alone in a shelter in fear of his life was intense, but Caesar’s struggle finally ends when he regains Oscar’s acceptance. Cesar helps Oscar defeat the prophets for good by paying them money from a bank robbery, and then effectively tells his brother that he no longer wants to be involved in this world – that he is not supposed to be part of a gang. It is a powerful moment for him individually and in his relationship with Oscar, whose reaction – apart from a silent and disapproving look – we cannot see.

Prophets are slaughtered

Once he learns that Caesar’s friends have found the RollerWorld money, Oscar makes a plan to plant dirty money on the Prophets to not only remove them from Caesar’s back, but to take care of them. once and for all. Oscar’s plan works and the prophets – including Latrell – are found with the marked money and then arrested. This event definitely seems like the end of the Prophets, but the cliffhanger at the end of the episode calls all of that into question.

Monse has an epiphany

At the end of season two, Monse learns that Caesar slept with someone while she was away from her mom. Monse is angry with Caesar for lying to him and angry with the rest of the crew for protecting his lie. This season has brought a lot of losses for Monse, between rebuilding and losing a relationship with his mother and navigating his relationship with Cesar. Her growth this season culminates in a revelation that the reason she feels unheard of and unappreciated by her friends is that she has the wrong type of friends: boys. She becomes inspired to research the girls’ academy that her father suggested as a way to keep her safe and tells her friends that she has decided to enroll.


Ruby starts to heal

Throughout season two, we see Ruby’s battle with PTSD and the survivor’s guilt for surviving the shooting while Olivia lost her life. We have seen memories of her trauma triggered in various ways and her anger at the situation explodes, but when the prophets are caught and Olivia’s death is finally confirmed by the arrest of Latrell, Ruby realizes that he is neither happy nor sad about the capture of the prophets. He reflects on the bigger picture above the “life for a life” mentality that brought them into this situation. It is inevitable that Ruby’s recovery from such a traumatic event is far from over, but this revelation seems to be a positive step in her recovery before the next season.

The group is kidnapped

After Monse tries in vain to tell the group her big news about the decision to enroll in boarding school, she flies away while the boys stay behind and tease her. Monse steps back with his back to the boys, vowing not to look back, as a black van approaches the fleeing boys and a group of camouflaged individuals jumps and kidnaps them. Monse, still unaware that her friends were taken away, decides to give in and turn around to realize that they are no longer there. Before she – or the audience – can blink, her head is covered by someone off screen and she’s taken away too.

Don’t worry, we already know who’s taking them with the season three trailer. Until we see how things go, get ready to join the team again on March 11 on Netflix!
