Chucky Season 2 Episode 1 Ending: Where Are Jake, Devon, and Lexy Sent?

Jake and Devon realize that they are in deep trouble after CHuky shows up at Lexy’s house. The episode begins with Andy driving off the cliff with the Chucky dolls. Andy likely hoped that his sacrifice would mean the destruction of all the Chucky dolls. However, Chucky’s return implies that Andy’s sacrifice might have been in vain. The serial killer doll still has some counterparts lying around and is ready to torment the teenagers again.

Chucky reveals that he orchestrated the episode’s events to bring Jake, Devon, and Lexy all under one roof. The teenagers foiled the doll’s masterplan in the season 1 finale. Moreover, they dealt heavy damage to Chucky’s cult. Therefore, Chucky has a special axe to grind with them. Chucky wants to kill the trio together and is prepared to do so with a bomb. However, he waits for Lexy to return from the bathroom before he can detonate the bomb. Jake and Devon fail to distract Chucky before Lexy returns to the room.

When Lexy returns, she is able to distract Chucky despite being high. The momentary distraction is enough for young Gary to leap into action and steal the bomb away. Gary hides in the kitchen with the bomb. However, Chucky detonates it and kills the young boy. Gary sacrifices himself to save Jake, Devon, and Lexy. While the teenagers survive the bomb explosion, they are in deeper trouble than ever.

In the episode’s final moments, Jake, Devon, and Lexy find themselves at the center of another grisly death. No one is ready to believe their killer doll story, so their fates rest in the hands of the authorities. The detective investigating the case and Lexy’s therapist discuss the situation and decide they need special attention. Therefore, the trio is sent to a school for troubled kids.

The episode ends with Jake, Lexy, and Devon arriving at the school. The place is none other than Charles Lee Ray’s childhood foster home. The house was an orphan boarding school before Charles Lee Ray enacted his murderous traits on the property. Hence, Jake, Devon, and Lexy will likely find themselves out of their depth in their new surroundings.
