What happened in Outer Banks Season 1? (spoilers)
John B’s father, Big John, and local big wig Warden Cameron teamed up to find the lost ship believed to have been carrying gold worth $400 million. Sadly, Big John went missing in mysterious circumstances.
Believing that his father left clues about where to find the gold, John B leads the Pogues on a desperate mission to find the treasure before anyone else is able to do so.
While searching for the elusive treasure, the Pogues contend with trouble from another teenage gang. Known as the Kooks, they include Topper (Austin North), Warden’s son Rafe Cameron (Drew Starkey), and Kelce (Deion Smith).
The relationship between the Pogues and the Kooks is complicated by a love triangle involving Rafe’s sister Sarah (Madelyn Cline), her boyfriend Topper, and John B.
Warden beats the Pogues to the gold. He gets a pilot to fly the loot out and then frames John B for the shooting death of Sheriff Peterkin (Adina Porter), although the crime was committed by his son Rafe. Rafe shot the Sheriff when she tried to arrest Warden for the death of John B’s dad.
The local police and the FBI mount a search for John B, believing him to be the suspect in Sheriff Peterkin’s death.
The season ends melodramatically with the two lovebirds, John B and Sarah, making a suicidal bid to escape from the authorities by driving their boat into a deadly storm during high seas.
“I would rather die than go to jail,” John B declares.
“I’d rather die than be without you,” Sarah tells him.
What to expect of Outer Banks Season 2
While escaping from the police by driving their boat into stormy waters, John B warned Ward Cameron via radio that he would return to get him.
Thankfully, John B and Sarah survived after being rescued by a boat out at sea. Viewers learn that the couple was headed for Nassau in the Bahamas to find the gold.
Actress Madelyn Cline, who plays Sarah Cameron, indicated in an interview with Entertainment Tonight that Outer Banks Season 2 will follow John B and Sarah’s search for the gold in Nassau. She also hinted that things could fall apart for Warden in Season 2.
“All of these puppet strings Ward has kind of been playing are now coming loose and he doesn’t really have control over his world anymore. I feel like there definitely will be consequences for Ward or Rafe, so that will be interesting to see how that plays out.”
Outer Banks Season 1 is streaming on Netflix.
