Can You Hear Me Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
In season 1, the series follows the complicated lives of three best friends – Ada, Fabiola, and Carolanne – as they find solace in each other while dealing with poverty and domestic violence at the hands of their complicated families and abusive partners. Towards the end, Ada gets tired of Keven’s misogynistic attitude and attempts to cut off his member in rage. However, she gets arrested and gets thrown in a psychiatric facility. Caro visits her and confesses that it’s time the three go their separate ways. Meanwhile, Fabiola tends to an injured Keven in the hospital.
The second season might pick up two years after the events of Season 1. Ada’s mental health might go for a toss because of the loneliness and isolation she has had to face during her stay in the mental hospital. We can also expect Fabiola to move forward in her career and single-handedly take care of Baby. Meanwhile, Caro might become a victim of domestic violence.
