Dark Winds Season 2 Episode 2 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

Dark Winds Season 2 Episode 2

Season 1 of Dark Winds became a surprise hit for AMC. The series was definitely the dark horse on a schedule that included Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead.

Dark Winds resonated deeply with viewers, especially the Native American community, who found the representation to be meaningful, complex, and respectful. Zahn McClarnon and Kiowa Gordon are back in the second season, once again back playing the protagonist duo from the books of the same name.

This new season promises to be even more exciting as we go deeper into the novel’s universe. It has been confirmed that the plot from the first season will not be continued in this season. We will most possibly see a new arc from one of the books. But even then, some residual subplots will be carried forward as callbacks. 

Here is everything you need to know about Dark Winds Season 2 Episode 2, including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where can I watch Dark Winds?

Dark Winds will be available to stream globally on AMC+ and the new episodes will also air on AMC as well. As has been the norm, the episodes will drop two days before the cable network on the streaming service. For those who do not have access to AMC in their country, Philo TV, Direct TV Stream, and Sling TV also offer paid services through which you can stream Dark Winds on the same day. 

Dark Winds Season 2 Episode 2 Release Date

Dark Winds Season 2 Episode 2 will be released on the streaming service, AMC+, before the cable network. The show will follow a twin release formula of Thursday and Saturday.

The new episode is titled “Wonders of the Unknown”. Its plot summary reads: “Leaphorn explores personal ties to an increasingly mysterious case; Chee is questioned by a reluctant Sgt. Manuelito; the discovery of a body sends Leaphorn and Manuelito in pursuit of a child in danger.”

How many episodes will Dark Winds have?

Dark Winds’ season 2 has been commissioned for a total of 6 episodes. This is the same number as the previous season. So, after the second episode, we will have another 4 episodes to go before it concludes.

What happened in Episode 1?

The season opener was action filled. We were introduced to the new antagonist for the season, although his identity is still under wraps. In the present day, we see Joe and Bernadette in pursuit of their suspect but the man is too smart for them and corners them in his trailer.

Six days before this night, we see Emerson Charley, an elder with cancer and associations with the People of Darkness – a wacko Rez church – getting blown up in the parking lot in his car. Emma was at the spot but escaped with little harm. 

Joe begins his investigation whereas Chee also begins his task. The latter is now a PI who takes petty jobs to make a living. The men are after Tomas Emerson, who was recently involved in a robbery at BJ Vines’ house. Vines featured in the previous season as the owner of the new company taking over the oilwell.

Bernadette is busy with a person of lesser menace. She follows Steve Begaye to a spot in the desert where he claims to have been bitten by a weird-looking sheep. Bernadette finds it on the road and brings it to the station, creeping everyone out.

The episode ends with a showdown between Leaphron & Lee and the suspect. Chee is shot in the chest but will survive. Leaphorn’s police truck is blown up, leaving them stranded for now.
