The Serie 1899 of Netflix has become the most recent success of the platform and also a source of all kinds of speculation. With a second season yet to be confirmed and many questions to answer, the plot remains mostly a mystery. In particular, due to the perception of the split reality that the narrative revealed and the way in which it is linked to a broader version of its premise.
If Kerberos is part of an even larger and more elaborate simulation, what happens to the previous ones? Much more so, when is the life of the main characters actually happening? Is Maura “The Creator” or is it someone else? Is Ciaran, her brother, the real puller behind the story? 1899 he uses fragmented information as part of his ability to maintain the majority of his argument through a series of puzzles.
Even so, the showrunners Jantje Friese and Baran bo Odar will have to answer pressing questions for the still unconfirmed second season of the series. While the production story did delve into several of its main questions, a few others were left blank. What questions should the story of an eventual sequel answer? 1899?
What is the virus that spread in the simulation of 1899?
As explained in detail in the last chapters of 1899, the Kerberos vessel is not real. Neither is anything on it or even the people on board. But what does appear to be quite tangible — or at least dangerous — is a virus of a deadly nature that is spread by ship. Within the terms of the series, it is an item capable of corrupting the simulation. Which means that it also does it with human consciousness. What is such a circumstance about?
Is it an aberration in the sense of the reality of the simulation? An error caused by the incessant and complex repetition of the same facts in different strata? for what it shows 1899, the virus is capable of destroying what is found within the representation of reality that Kerberos shows. So the question is whether it is a damage to the Kerberos project, rather than to the ship or to any of the passengers. The series must explain what or how is the pathogen actually? capable of consuming memories or even corrupting them beyond recognition.
Can Kerberos survivors remember what happened before or after?
What 1899 explained, every time a passenger dies in Kerberos their memory is reset. Which means that he wakes up without awareness of what he experienced and, much less, of the situation in which he finds himself. But at the end of the season it is explained that Daniel changes the simulation settingsso it ends with its hostages alive.
Therefore, the question is inevitable. Do the survivors of this latest simulation keep their memories or, in any case, part of them? What can they remember exactly? Does that mean that they will understand the nature of what happens and, at the same time, will build their perception of time in a more elaborate way?
How many simulations did Henry survive in the first season of 1899?
Although Henry’s character is a prisoner within the simulation, like the rest of the passengers, he is the only one aware of what is happening. As much as to keep a visual record of what is happening and influence your results.
But Henry is not the creator nor is his influence as wide as might be supposed. So, the big question that the second season of 1899 it is How long have you been trapped in multiple simulations?. Furthermore, how much time has actually elapsed between all versions of the experience? At what point was she aware of what was happening and, therefore, managed to have some control over her perception of time?
Is Elliot alive in some simulation or in the central reality of the show?
The program makes it clear. Maura built the first iteration of the simulation to preserve the memory of Elliot, her son who was dying of an illness. In the end, Maura ends up erasing her own memories of him in the midst of the multiplicity of realities she must face. So, Elliot’s death is not a recorded event, despite what was shown in Maura’s memory room.
The big question here is whether Maura might not have a certain idea about what happened to her son and just assume he died. So is Elliot alive in some reality? Could it be the big surprise of the upcoming and still hypothetical season of 1899?
Is Maura’s brother Ciaran the real big villain of 1899?
The season finale of 1899 it shows that Maura, while she created the simulation, is held hostage to the multiple versions of reality. It is because his mysterious brother Ciaran took “the reins” of the simulation, in Daniel’s words. Does that mean that the real villain behind the scenes is the enigmatic man whose existence is only hinted at?
For now, 1899 you should answer the questions related to Ciaran to understand what is happening outside of the simulation. In any case, how Maura lost control of his own creation. Which builds a completely new setting for the series.
Where is Kerberos actually going?
As discovered at the end of the season of 1899, Kerberos is nothing more than part of a simulation that belongs to the Prometheus project. But even more amazing is that all the characters travel in a spaceship. That, in addition, the script indicates that he travels to a hidden region of space. It even provides coordinates “42.043240–44.375760”. Where is the group of passengers going and why? Undoubtedly, one of the most disturbing questions that 1899 for its continuation.
