The Case Study of Vanitas Season 2 Episode 1 Spoilers
In the season 1 finale, Lord Ruthven ambushes Noé and easily restrains him with his overwhelming powers. Then he proceeds to take him in his control and makes him vow to follow one of his commands whenever he is asked blindly. Late in the hotel room, Dante informs Noé and Vanitas that the Beast of Gevaudan, La Bete, is alive and has been spotted in Gevaudan. Determined to capture the giant wolf, the two friends set out on a journey to the region.
In season 2, episode 1, Noé and Vanitas will reach Gevaudan, where they will begin their hunt for the mythical creature after taking some rest in their room.
