[Warning: The below contains MAJOR spoilers for Season 2 of Homecoming.]

Amazon Prime Video’s twisty thriller Homecoming returned for another deliciously disorienting season on May 22, and like Season 1, left fans with some major unanswered questions.

Before we delve too deep into the abyss of spoilers, now would be the perfect time to turn back and watch the latest episodes if you haven’t already. As viewers recall, Season 1 covered the story of Heidi Bergman (Julia Roberts), a caseworker who was employed by Geist’s Homecoming facility. There, she oversaw the mental state of various soldiers who were enrolled in the “rehab” program which was meant to help with their PTSD.

Plus, she discusses working with series newbies Joan Cusack and Chris Cooper.

Eventually, Heidi uncovered that the men were being served memory-erasing drugs in their meals. In an effort to save her patient, Walter Cruz (Stephan James), from re-deployment, Heidi double-dosed him, along with herself. This left both of their memories crippled, forcing Cruz to be discharged and Heidi to be removed from the payroll. But signs of returning memories led Heidi on a mission to uncover the truth, which eventually resulted in her checking in on Walter, sparking his own awakening in Season 2.

Cut to the second season introduction of Jackie (Janelle Monáe), who viewers discover is actually named Alex, and was sent as a fixer to make sure Cruz didn’t remember his Homecoming experience. Jackie/Alex is tied to Geist’s recently-promoted exec Audrey Temple (Hong Chau) as both a significant other and conspirator, but she winds up being drugged herself. Viewers follow her mind-blowing journey as she puts the jumbled pieces of her past together.

Considering how Walter left things in the Season 2 finale (he poisoned the employees at Geist’s headquarters), we can’t help but feel there’s more to this story. Below, we’re rounding up some of the major questions that need to be answered if Homecoming returns for a third season.

How will the mass poisoning be explained?

Considering the memory-erasing element of Geist’s drug, how will the catastrophic poisoning at headquarters be explained? Alex (Monáe), Leonard Geist (Chris Cooper) and Walter (James) were the only witnesses to make it through the event unscathed. As one of the poisoning victims was military officer and hopeful Geist collaborator Francine Bunda (Joan Cusack), could a cover up be on the horizon?

Will Walter spread the word?

It seemed fairly clear as Walter drove away from the Geist headquarters, taking with him patient records for himself and his fellow Homecoming participants, that his story wasn’t over. Will he begin his tour to inform the others? It’s possible, or he could seek out former caseworker Heidi. It would make for an interesting reunion.

Will Alex help Audrey?

In Season 1, Audrey (Chau) came across as a shifty individual, inserting herself into Geist’s upper executive level. In Season 2, we learn that Audrey was encouraged by Alex to do so. And even though Alex’s memories of their relationship are erased, she did stick by Audrey’s side after the mass poisoning in the finale. Does this mean she’s going to help Audrey try and remember what happened, or is she there out of obligation?

What will happen to Leonard Geist?

Introduced in Season 2, Leonard Geist (Chris Cooper) clearly wasn’t pleased with the direction his company had taken. Originally a line of cleaning products, the Geist Corporation’s dive into pharma displeased Leonard due largely to what happened as a result of that new initiative. Essentially overrun by the company’s executives, Geist helped Walter poison the employees as a wake up call to the dangers they’re imparting on these unwitting participants. Will he be held responsible for the poisoning? He did make a bi scene at the party where the action took place, which if captured on film, could be incriminating.

What happened to the other Homecoming participants?

We caught glimpses of what happened to the other men who took part in Geist’s operation, particularly Walter’s friend Joseph Shrier (Jeremy Allen White) who seemed extra paranoid after being discharged from the program and military. Perhaps Season 3 could give viewers a look at where the others are now and how Geist’s drug changed their paths.

Will the investigation into Homecoming continue?

This season focused on events that took place around the same time as Season 1, just from a different perspective. Would Season 3 see the return of compliance officer Thomas Carrasco (Shea Whigham)? He wasn’t supported by his supervisor at the Department of Defense, Pam Bailey (Brooke Bloom), who tipped off Audrey about the increasing interest in Homecoming’s devious behavior. While viewers saw the results of Geist being called in to answer to suspicions, Carrasco wasn’t part of the ordeal, making us wonder if he’s gone rogue to uncover the truth.
